With that said, the ESPN Power Rankings have shuffled the top-tier teams, beginning with the surging Green Bay Packers.
30 - San Francisco 49ers - The 49ers' 21-0 win over the Rams wasn't about Chip Kelly's team looking good as much as it was about the Rams just being downright very bad.
No. 32: Going from Robert Griffin III to Josh McCown isn't a bad thing, necessarily - there's a good argument that McCown is better right now - but the Browns showed nothing in the opener that provided any optimism for the next 15 games.
Jimmy Garoppolo led the New England Patriots to a win on the road against Arizona in Week 1.
If your definition of an exciting weekend is seeing a lot of points in games decided by just a few of them this past weekend certainly fits the definition of "best NFL Week 1 ever". With Week 2 starting Thursday, franchises and players could not be more competitive in their respective conference and division battles.
To account for injuries and roster moves announced late in the week, we will be re-simulating games on Thursdays through the season.
Titans (+5.5) at Lions: Since being promoted to offensive coordinator midway through last season, Jim Bob Cooter is proving he has the game to back up his awesome name. Both teams fell one game shy of the Super Bowl in part because they were playing on the road. This matchup will be close as both teams are similarly structured but the Texans with the home crowd behind them will pull out the win. So, if the No. 1 quarterback in the power rankings is on a bye and No. 2 throws for seven touchdowns, he will remain at No. 2 for that week, while No. 1 stays at his top spot.
Week one is in the books and what a great opening week it was.
The Lions won on a last-second field goal to surprise the Colts on the road. The Lions offense takes advantage as Stafford throws three touchdown in a victory.
I still don't know what Ryan Grigson and Chuck Pagano have done during their tenure as GM and head coach in Indianapolis to merit the contract extensions they got in January.
The Dolphins nearly squeaked out a win in Seattle last week and gave me a scare in my Losers Pool, but it was only because the Seahawks' offense was dismal. Browns lost, 29-10. The Seahawks only won by two points at home against Miami. This squad struggled offensively on Sunday, but Russell Wilson led a comeback win and despite it being hard, any team would rather have the win instead of a loss and with Arizona losing, it gives this franchise a head start in the NFC West to start the year.
If your National Football League team has one, then all is right in your sporting world. Russell Wilson does wonderful things with a garbage offensive line.
How does Jameis Winston match up against the Cardinals in Week 2? Or did they just beat an overrated Colts team?
Fitzgerald rejects retirement talk - Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald entered the Sunday Night Football clash with the Patriots amid talk of him retiring at the end of the season.
49ers @ Panthers: The 49ers will not score 28 points nor will they shut out their opponent instead they will be the ones getting shut out. San Diego will try to pick themselves up after the loss but also losing Keenan Allen for the season with a torn ACL will be tough to overcome. Our engine has him scoring a respectable 9.8 points in standard leagues this week in what could be a high-scoring game. If the Dolphins' defense had done its job on Seattle's final drive, Tannehill would have been the winning quarterback. It won't be an easy one for the Packers next week either as they travel to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. I do not adjust picks even if injuries occur and/or lines change between Wednesday afternoon and Sunday. The Viking defense will keep them in it, but the Pack will prevail in the end. Hill wasn't great either and the Vikings had zero offensive scores.
However, that was a solid debut for Carson Wentz.
Aaron Rodgers and the Packers got the win in week one in Jacksonville and look to continue the offense rolling in to Minnesota.
The Eagles start rookie Carson Wentz, who missed most of the summer with a hairline rib fracture.
The Jets found a way to lose at home against the Bengals thanks to a handful of blown coverages, red zone chances, a botched extra point and a missed short field goal?
