NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Lingerie Football League Edition

1 of 33

    It's tough to know where you team is after two weeks, which is why there are power rankings.

    But because some teams have won games by luck and some have lost games by misfortune, records aren't the only indication of where your team is right now.

    So here's the ranking with a couple bonuses, what to look forward to and what to be scared of.

    Also, in honor of the hard working ladies of the gridiron, here are some pics of them in action.

32. Buffalo Bills

2 of 33

    This Week's Game: New England Patriots

    What To Look Forward To:

    The Ryan Fitzpatrick Era. He went to Harvard, so he'll figure out how to win some games, right?

    What To Worry About:

    Not getting a chance to see if CJ Spiller is the real deal because Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch have to get their carries.

31. Cleveland Browns

3 of 33

    This Week's Game: Baltimore Ravens

    What To Look Forward To:

    Knowing that the Colt McCoy era is just one snap away from starting...

    What To Worry About:

    Knowing that at some point, because they paid him, Jake Delhomme will be back.

30 St. Louis Rams

4 of 33

    This Week's Game: Washington Redskins

    What To Look Forward To:

    Sam Bradford is keeping St. Louis in games, making things exciting.

    What To Worry About:

    Young Bradford is dropping back so much you wonder if he'll make it through the whole season. I'm not jinxing the kid, I just think 80 attempts after two games is a lot.

29. Carolina Panthers

5 of 33

    This Week's Game: Cincinnati Bengals

    What To Look Forward To:

    Another team breaking in a new quarterback, in Carolina the Jimmy Clausen Era begins.

    (That is an underrated name. Not to many Jimmy's out there anymore. Where are all the Jimmy's?!)

    What To Worry About:

    We have to hope that Jimmy doesn't get Steve Smith angry. You don't want to get Steve Smith angry.


28. Detroit Lions

6 of 33

    This Week's Game: Minnesota Vikings

    What To Look Forward To:

    Right now Detroit is the fourth best 0-2 team out there in my humble opinion.

    What To Worry About:

    Unfortunately they are probably going to be the best 0-3 team as well.

27. Seattle Seahawks

7 of 33

    This Week's Game: San Diego Chargers

    What To Look Forward To:

    Pete Carrol's energy and Matt Hasselbeck drinking from the fountain of youth as well as a winnable division.

    What To Worry About:

    There will probably be more ugly losses in the future. This week might be one of them.

26. Arizona Cardinals

8 of 33

    This Week's Game: Oakland Raiders

    What To Look Forward To:

    DA might wake up and feel like it's 2007 again, his Pro Bowl year.

    What To Worry About:

    If Anderson keeps getting sacked, Max Hall might be forced into action sooner than expected.

25. Jacksonville Jaguars

9 of 33

    This Week's Game: Philadelphia Eagles

    What To Look Forward To:

    Maurice Jones-Drew picked himself first in the fantasy draft so he's going to turn it on at some point or he'll lose his league.

    What To Worry About:

    David Garrard backs up a three touchdown game with a four interception game and a benching. Maybe if you ask him politely he'll go back to the week one Garrard.

24. Oakland Raiders

10 of 33

    This Week's Game: Arizona Cardinals

    What To Look Forward To:

    Darren McFadden looks like he is turning into the real deal that Oakland hoped he would be.

    What To Worry About:

    Jason Campbell wasn't to happy about being pulled. This might end up being a problem.

23. San Francisco 49ers

11 of 33

    This Week's Game: Kansas City Chiefs

    What To Look Forward To:

    A win soon. Everyone called the loss to New Orleans a "good loss." Well it's time to start getting some good wins, or even bad wins. Just wins.

    What To Worry About:

    Since every team in the division thinks they have a shot at the title, no gimmes this year.

22. New York Giants

12 of 33

    This Week's Game: Tennessee Titans

    What To Look Forward To:

    Better team cohesion, now that Brandon Jacobs apologized. And not having to play the Colts again for a long time.

    What To Worry About:

    One of the most evenly matched and toughest divisions to try to navigate through.

21. Kansas City Chiefs

13 of 33

    This Week's Game: San Francisco 49ers

    What To Look Forward To:

    Since both of their running backs want to be the number one, the battle for carries is going to keep both of them running hard.

    What To Worry About:

    Are you ever going to get the Matt Cassel from New England that you thought you were getting?

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

14 of 33

    This Week's Game: Pittsburgh Steelers

    What To Look Forward To:

    The further development of Josh Freeman and his go to target Mike Williams, (the other one).

    What To Worry About:

    That expectations might get too high too soon. There is a long season to go. Also have to worry about over working Cadillac Williams.

19. Denver Broncos

15 of 33

    This Week's Game: Indianapolis Colts

    What To Look Forward To:

    If you have to play the Colts, at least it is at Mile High, right?

    What To Worry About:

    If you have to get into a shoot out with the Colts, do you have the horses?

18. Dallas Cowboys

16 of 33

    This Week's Game: Houston Texans

    What To Look Forward To:

    They still have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball and they still have 14 games to go.

    What To Worry About:

    Who will be the first to feel the axe if the losses start to pile up? The Coach is usually the first to go.

17. Minnesota Vikings

17 of 33

    This Week's Game: Detroit Lions

    What To Look Forward To:

    They get a scrappy, but beatable Detroit Lions team this week.

    What To Worry About:

    If they lose this game, the season might start circling the drain.

16. Tennessee Titans

18 of 33

    This Week's Game: New York Giants

    What To Look Forward To:

    No quarterback controversy. Coach Fisher says that Vince Young is still the guy, but he has to do what he has to do to win games. Can't blame the man.

    What To Worry About:

    The turnovers keep piling up. And what happens if he has to bench Young again?

15. Philadelphia Eagles

19 of 33

    This Week's Game: Jacksonville Jaguars

    What To Look Forward To:

    Michael Vick running up and down the field making big plays to help the team win.

    What To Worry About:

    Will Kevin Kolb ever see the field again. And if so, how will his psyche be?

14. Washington Redskins

20 of 33

    This Week's Game: St. Louis Rams

    What To Look Forward To:

    They get to rush a young quarterback and see if they can make him make mistakes. Also, the offense is looking pretty good with McNabb at the helm.

    What To Worry About:

    Will giving up big leagues become a trend? Because the division is brutal.

13. Chicago Bears

21 of 33

    This Week's Game: Green Bay Packers

    What To Look Forward To:

    A Monday Night Football game against their hated division rival.

    What To Worry About:

    What do they do if they can't get pressure on Aaron Rodgers? Can Jay Cutler win a shoot out?

12. San Diego Chargers

22 of 33

    This Week's Game: Seattle Seahawks

    What To Look Forward To:

    Getting the Vincent Jackson sag behind them once and for all.

    What To Worry About:

    Will they have enough weapons to make a deep playoff run if Jackson is traded.

11. Atlanta Falcons

23 of 33

    This Week's Game: New Orleans Saints

    What To Look Forward To:

    The return of Michael Turner. Even though his back up, Jason Snelling did a hell of a job.

    What To Worry About:

    Going to the Bayou and beating the Super Bowl champs. Tough task, but at least they will know where they stand after this game.

10. Cincinnati Bengals

24 of 33

    This Week's Game: Carolina Panthers

    What To Look Forward To:

    More chemistry building between Palmer and his two new weapons, TO, and tight end Gresham.

    What To Worry About:

    Are all their wins going to be ugly ones?

9. New England Patriots

25 of 33

    This Week's Game: Buffalo Bills

    What To Look Forward To:

    A game to get the offense back on track.

    What To Worry About:

    With the injury to Kevin Faulk, the IR list is filled with important players needed to make a run.

8. Baltimore Ravens

26 of 33

    This Week's Game: Cleveland Browns

    What To Look Forward To:

    The offense clicking, as soon as Flacco stops turning the ball over.

    What To Worry About:

    With all the weapons that Flacco has, why are they maxing out at 10 points a game?

7. Pittsburgh Steelers

27 of 33

    This Week's Game: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

    What To Look Forward To:

    The return of some guy who lead them to a couple of Super Bowls. Ben something.

    What To Worry About:

    Will they be .500 by the time he gets back or well on their way to a playoff run?

6. New York Jets

28 of 33

    This Week's Game: Miami Dolphins

    What To Look Forward To:

    Another division game. And a chance to move into first in the AFC East.

    What To Worry About:

    All the off field stuff is beginning to pile up and it's only week 3.

5. Miami Dolphins

29 of 33

    This Week's Game: New York Jets

    What To Look Forward To:

    Staying undefeated and under the radar.

    What To Worry About:

    Is there going to come a time when they have to pass to win the game?

4. Indianapolis Colts

30 of 33

    This Week's Game: Denver Broncos

    What To Look Forward To:

    Settling into the season and getting another 12-win season under their belt.

    What To Worry About:

    Will they be ready when Arian Foster and the Texans come to town?

3. Houston Texans

31 of 33

    This Week's Game: Dallas Cowboys

    What To Look Forward To:

    Taking over as the King of Texas

    What To Worry About:

    Falling behind again like last week, might not be as easy to come back from.

2. Green Bay Packers

32 of 33

    This Week's Game: Chicago Bears

    What To Look Forward To:

    Showing the world how good they are as the only game on, Monday night

    What To Worry About:

    At what point does not having Ryan Grant become the pink elephant in the room?

1. New Orleans Saints

33 of 33

    This Week's Game: Atlanta Falcons

    What To Look Forward To:

    More Drew Brees wizardry when they need it.

    What To Worry About:

    Will the Reggie Bush injury be bigger than we think?
