“The Reality Check” Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

September 21, 2011 | Glenn Clark

16. Dallas Cowboys (LW: 16)

Tony Romo Tony Romo Tony Romo Tony Romo Tony Romo Tony Romo Tony Romo.

15. Washington Redskins (LW: 19)

I know they’re 2-0. I’m still not fully buying in. Rex Grossman is their quarterback. He CAN’T keep winning.

14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 14)

I’m a LITTLE concerned about them, but at least they’re not 0-2.

13. Chicago Bears (LW: 9)

How do I have them so far below the Atlanta Falcons? I’m selfish. I don’t like the Bears. I picked the Falcons to go to the Super Bowl. WGlenNST.

12. Buffalo Bills (LW: 15)

I’m not fully buying in yet, but what’s not to like thus far?

11. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 11)

They played Seattle. Am I really supposed to move them up?

10. San Diego Chargers (LW: 6)

The more they’re not playing the Pats, the more they’ll move up.

9. Atlanta Falcons (LW: 13)

That was fun the other night. I’d be interested to know how things would have ended had Michael Vick not gotten hurt.

8. Baltimore Ravens (LW: 3)

I was tempted to drop them more. That was pathetic Sunday. They’ll need to be better than that to win more games.

7. Detroit Lions (LW: 10)

Love them. Want to move them higher, but know they have to keep winning.

6. Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 5)

Didn’t drop them much because of the Vick injury. Still buying in.

5. New York Jets (LW: 8)

I’m still skeptical, but they’re 2-0 and it wasn’t close Sunday.

4. Houston Texans (LW: 7)

Perhaps the Titans will keep things interesting in the AFC South, but the Texans will win plenty of games.

3. New Orleans Saints (LW: 4)

I get it. The secondary isn’t great. I don’t care. I like this team.

2. New England Patriots (LW: 2)

“They are who we thought they were.”

1. Green Bay Packers (LW: 1)

They’re not going to go 16-0. I’m pretty sure anyway.
