1. New Orleans Saints
A power running attack gave the champs a challenge on Monday night. They have another one coming to town next week with the Falcons.
2. Green Bay Packers
The Packers swatted away the lowly Bills like flies.
3. Houston Texans
The Texans won in week one with the running game. In week two, they used the passing game. Few teams can adjust to what the defense is giving them as well as the Texans.
4. Indianapolis Colts
The Giants had no answer for an angry Colts team.
5. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers can probably win with Hines Ward running the option if their defense continues to play as it has so far.
6. New York Jets
The arrival of the Jet’s offense was nice to see albeit a week late. The division win over the Pats was a huge one not just for its playoff implications but for the confidence of the team and most notably it’s quarterback.
7. Chicago Bears
We get to see if the Bears are a contender or pretender on Monday against the Packers.
8. Miami Dolphins
Winning ugly seems to be the early theme for the Dolphins in 2010. They will need to find some pretty plays on offense Sunday to deal with the Jets defense.
9. Atlanta Falcons
The Cardinals didn’t present nearly as serious a challenge as the Steelers did in week one. The running game will need to be in high gear again to win Sunday in New Orleans.
10. Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens didn’t get any breaks from the referees on Sunday, but they’re also not making any for themselves on offense either.
