It was No. 1 vs. No. 2 this past week and, as things turned out on Sunday night, it really wasn't that close in the end. The Falcons opened the doors to their brand-new stadium and knocked off the revenge-minded Packers, last week's top team in the Wildly Important NFL Power Rankings. So now there's a new No. 1.
The Chiefs, Steelers, Patriots and Raiders round out the top five. New England rebounded from its season-opening flop by walloping the defenseless Saints. The Ravens and their defense looks sneaky good and the Bucs look as good as advertised.
Aside from the Green Bay dropping six spots, the Cowboys headline teams heading in the wrong direction. Dallas plummets eight spots down to 14 after getting blasted by the Broncos in Mile High. No major changes at the bottom as the Jets and Colts still rule the cellar.
And here are the rest of my rankings heading into Week 3.
