NFL Power Rankings, Week 3: Packers Jump as Broncos Claim #1 Spot

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

With a second full week of NFL games in the books, it's time to revisit our Power Rankings this week. The Green Bay Packers get an expected jump after cruising to an easy win over a team that won its division last year. Likewise, we see the top spot change hands as the 49ers drop an ugly game on the road to a tough Seattle team.

Other big changers are the Dolphins and Chiefs, who both moved to 2-0 with close wins over decent teams in the Colts and Cowboys, respectively.

SBNation's power rankings are up as well, with the Packers holding steady at number six. Apparently I'm more willing to move teams around in big swings than those guys are.
