Number 17: St. Louis Rams (1-1) – Last Week 16
The Rams secondary had a tough time defending Julio Jones last week. In order for them to defeat the Cowboys this week they have to change that, because if they don’t, Tony Romo will have a monstrous game.
Number 18: Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) – Last Week 11
After an emotional week one victory against the Redskins, the Eagles were unable to overcome the Chargers. Despite being able to put up points, this defense is what has and will continue to cost them games. Defensive Coordinator, Bill Davis certainly has his work cut out for him this season.
Number 19: Arizona Cardinals (1-1) – Last Week 23
As long as Carson Palmer continues to play how he has been, the Cardinals will continue to give good teams trouble throughout the season. They will be tested big time this weekend as they head to New Orleans to take on the Saints.
Number 20: Detroit Lions (1-1) – Last Week 19
As long as this Detroit offense can continue to put up numbers this team will always give their opponent some trouble.
Number 21: Tennessee Titans (1-1) – Last Week
The Titans have come out and surprised a lot of people this season. After a week one victory against Pittsburgh and a hard fought battle against Houston that led to an overtime loss, the Titans can really mark themselves as contenders with a win this week against San Diego.
Number 22: New York Giants (0-2) – Last Week 17
The Giants are really struggling this year. They have an awful running offense and Eli can’t seem to hold onto the ball as he already has 7 interceptions this season.
Number 23: Washington Redskins (0-2) – Last Week 18
If you look at the Redskins, you can clearly see that RGIII isn’t the problem. This Redskins offense is one of the best in the league statistically, it’s the defense that has been their biggest Achilles heel, giving up already more than 1,000 yards through the first two weeks.
Number 24: Minnesota Vikings (0-2) – Last Week 22
As long as Christian Ponder is the quarterback for this team, they will continue to struggle. If they are in position to, I would not be surprised if they draft a quarterback in the first round in next years draft.
Number 25: Buffalo Bills (1-1) – Last Week 28
E.J. Manuel has been impressive through his first two starts as the Bills starter. If he could keep this up, the Bills are a team that could surprise a lot of people.
Number 26: Pittsburgh Steelers (0-2) – Last Week 24
With a running game ranked 31st in the league and an offensive line that lost their captain, the Steelers are looking at an 0-3 start as they are set to face Chicago Sunday night.
Number 27: New York Jets (1-1) – Last Week 27
The Jets defense showed that they are still one of the best in the league, holding the Patriots offense to just 13 points; however, the offense is fallacious.
Number 28: Carolina Panthers (0-2) – Last Week 25
Cam Newton is struggling big time so far this season. The other offensive players need to step up and give him some help.
Number 29: Oakland Raiders (1-1) – Last Week
After a close battle with the Colts week one, a win against Jacksonville this past Sunday didn’t do much for them. If they can somehow pull off a victory this week then they will move up.
Number 30: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-2) – Last Week 26
For a team that has a tremendous amount of physical talent, they seem to be mentally weak and now it seems as if coach Greg Schiano is losing the locker room. Disappointing start to what could have been a promising season.
Number 31: Cleveland Browns (0-2) – Last Week 31
The Browns might not be so far behind the Jaguars. Brandon Weeden has failed miserably as a starter in this league.
Number 32: Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) – Last Week 32
The Jaguars are easily the embarrassments of the NFL and the fact that they have to play in Seattle on Sunday isn’t going to help their case.
