1. Green Bay Packers: No offseason workouts, no problem.

2. New England Patriots: Appears to be a team on a mission this season.

3. Baltimore Ravens: Think the Ravens wanted to prove something in Week One?

4. Philadelphia Eagles: Balanced offense masked concerns on offensive line.

5. New York Jets: They should tell Sanchez it's tied, clock winding down every series.

6. Houston Texans: Lived up to the preseason hype as new kings of AFC South.

7. San Diego Chargers: Opening kickoff wasn't pretty, but Rivers got them on track.

8. New Orleans Saints: Should be fine until that NFC title game rematch with Pack.

9. Chicago Bears: Forté made quite the case to be the next starting RB to get paid.

10. Pittsburgh Steelers: Defending AFC champs got punched in mouth in opener.

11. Atlanta Falcons: Proved games are won on the field, not in offseason moves.

12. Detroit Lions: Stafford survived. Lions fans can hold their breath for 15 more games.

13. Dallas Cowboys: Will never know what Tony Romo was thinking on that interception.

14. Washington Redskins: The forgotten team in the NFC East starts 1-0.

15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Not a good start for the pass defense.

16. New York Giants: We knew the defense would be hurt, but not the running game.

17. Buffalo Bills: No one circles the wagons like Ryan Fitzpatrick.

18. Jacksonville Jaguars: McCown did what he needed to do — not throw a pick.

19. Arizona Cardinals: If Beanie runs like that, we have our NFC West favorites.

20. San Francisco 49ers: If only they could play the Seahawks every week.

21. Oakland Raiders: McFadden, Bush likely licking chops for Bills' run defense.

22. Cincinnati Bengals: Carson who? Proved doubters wrong with Week One win.

23. St. Louis Rams: Injuries are huge concern for the former NFC West favorites.

24. Miami Dolphins: Chad Henne was named captain, but that alone won't earn him fans' respect.

25. Minnesota Vikings: Would Ponder or Webb have thrown for more than 39 yards?

26. Carolina Panthers: Quite the debut for Cam, but where were the backs?

27. Tennessee Titans: CJ2K? How about CJ24 for his 24 rushing yards. Yikes.

28. Denver Broncos: Only city where battle to be backup QB makes headlines.

29. Kansas City Chiefs: Do we have our first-to-worst candidate?

30. Cleveland Browns: Clearly flustered by having to play as 6½-point favorites. 

31. Indianapolis Colts: No Manning, lots of problems.

32. Seattle Seahawks: Marshawn Lynch can't carry the offense with 33 yards rushing.
