1) Steelers(2) (1-0) - It wasn't the most impressive win, but the Defending Champs got the job done.
2) Giants(3) (1-0) - Perhaps the best looking team in Week 1, have a bigger test next week against Dallas.
3) Eagles(4) (1-0) - Everything went right for the defense, but McNabb's injury is certainly a concern for next week against the Saints.
4) Patriots(1) (1-0) - Captain Brady got them the win, but an early wake-up call in New England.
5) Vikings(5) (1-0) - Adrian Peterson does his thing as Brett Favre starts to emerge as the leader once again.
6) Falcons(7) (1-0) - The defense looked better then expected, and Matt Ryan continues to shine with new target Tony Gonzalez.
7) Saints(8) (1-0) - Whenever you put up 45 points, you did something right.
8) Chargers(6) (1-0) - Closer then expected, but a dramatic win to start out the season.
9) Colts(9) (1-0) - Reggie Wayne had to win it all by himself this week.
10) Packers(12) (1-0) - It's only been one week, but the 3-4 seems to be working in Green Bay.
11) Ravens(13) (1-0) - Flacco continues to make strides, business as usual for the defense.
12) Titans(14) (0-1) - A tough loss to start the year, but the defense played well and kept them in the game.
13) Jets(15) (1-0) - Sanchez was phenominal in his NFL debut. This team will continue to suprise people.
14) Cowboys(23) (1-0) - No TO. No problem. Roy Willaims and Patrick Crayton both put in big performances in Week 1.
15) Seahawks(19) (1-0) - Didn't have to try to hard against St. Louis, but this team already looks better then last year,
16) Texans(11) (0-1) - Struggled the whole game against the suprising Jets. This team has to pick it up to avoid another 8-8 season.
17) Bears(16) (0-1) - Not the debut Cutler and Chicago was hoping for. Then it all got worse with Urlacher's injury.r 
18) 49ers(22) (1-0) - A good divisional win, but there have so be some quetions about the run game of a run first team.
19) Panthers(10) (0-1) - There's apparently a job opening for a quarterback position in Carolina.
20) Bills(25) (0-1) - Trent Edwards looked sharped, and almost beat Tom Brady and the Patriots.
21) Redskins(17) (0-1) - The offense can't seem to score enough points to win.
22) Cardinals(21) (0-1) - The offense looked out of sync, this is not the same team that won the NFC Championship last year.
23) Raiders(24) (0-1) - Looked pretty good at home against San Diego, almost got the upset.
24) Bengals(18) (0-1) - They basically had that thing won..., but still didn't play a very good game.
25) Buccaneers(26) (0-1) - The secondary got killed all day, but the offense was a huge positive.
26) Dolphins(20) (0-1) - Continuing the struggles on offense in Miami.
27) Chiefs(27) (0-1) - Brodie Croyle filled in well for Cassel, if only they could get their run game together.
28) Broncos(30) (1-0) - They managed to pull out a BS win, so I guess that's something.
29) Browns(29) (0-1) - The good news is Brady Quinn out performed Delhomme and Cutler.
30) Lions(31) (0-1) - The defense got ripped to shreds against New Orleans, but they did put up 27 points.
31) Jaguars(28) (0-1) - Not a lot going well for this team right now.
32) Rams(32) (0-1) - The only team not to score any points last week.

I agree, they were not given enough credit.  Jones Drew had some nice runs and look like their defense is a step upu from last year.

The Jaguars played well against the Colts.  Jones Drew did have some nice looking runs and their offense should improve with the addition of Holt.  Look for better things to come from JAX.

Giants at 2 and the best looking team in week 1 is a joke! Did you not see the JETS in week 1? Dallas being14 is crazy, I know the D didn't look that great but the O sure did. In week 2 the Giants will Eat the turf of the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium and then they should swap places in the rankings.

I completly agree with this, so your not alone here.  The Lions are going to continue to put up points through out the season and their defense is going to continue to kill them.  The Jags are a much better team than is portrayed in these rankings.

I think the Jags got ripped here.  I'm a Lions fan as bad as that is right now, and I dont see how the Jags can be rated lower than the Lions.  I would like to see the Jags up around 13 or so.  Also I think that Carolina should be down a little further than they are.  I didnt like a thing I saw in that game.  However, it is week one and there is going to be a lot of room for change here obviously.

First, thanks for the grammar fix. Can't believe I missed that.

I could be alone on this thought, but I credit the Jags staying close more so to the Colts not playing as well as they could of. Reggie Wayne was the only offensive player contributing. And about the Lions, I know everyone else seems to regard them as the number 32 team since they've lost 18 straight. I disagree with that position because this is a new season, and they're 0-1 just like 15 other teams. The Rams were shutout in Seattle, losing by 28. I could see putting the Jaguars in front of Detroit, I was just more impressed with what the Lions putting up 27 against the Saints.
