With a full week of exhibition games in the books, we take a look at how each team stacks up entering Preseason Week 2 with these 2018 NFL Power Rankings
The first full weekend of preseason football is in the books, which means we can once again dig into our 2018 NFL Power Rankings. While we can’t tell a whole lot about some teams from the first preseason game, we have seen plenty leading up to this point to know whether or not teams addressed deficiencies they had entering the long, painful offseason.
We also know by now which stars are ready to be back on the field after suffering an injury the prior year. And we had a lot of stars go down last year.
There were quarterbacks like Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill lost before the season started. There were others like Aaron Rodgers, Deshaun Watson, and Carson Wentz who went down during the year.
Outside of quarterbacks, players like defensive end J.J. Watt, receiver Odell Beckham Jr., cornerback Richard Sherman and running back Dalvin Cook — just to name a few — all went down.
Not all those players hit the field, and some did for just a quick moment for their team. Again, that won’t tell us all we need to know — nor will it make or break a season — but we can sort out how the 32 teams fall heading into Preseason Week 2.
