Everybody loves rankings, especially NFL power rankings. We are now into the third week of the season and to NFL fans across the world it is either a time of joy or panic. Some teams have been disappointing thus far. Other teams have looked spectacular. Each week the NFL unveils their power rankings and we have them all in one place, just for you!

32. Oakland Raiders

The promise shown in Week 1 went the way of the dodo bird awful quickly against the Texans — in Oakland, no less. Still, I love the way rookie Derek Carr is out there competing.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars 

Hmm. Uh … Looking for something to type that is nice. Ah, to hell with it. When do we get to seeBlake Bortles? (Quarterback strategy aside, to blame Sunday’s loss on Chad Henne would be seriously misguided.)

30. New York Giants 

Lost opportunity for the Giants, facing a Drew Stanton-led Cardinals team in front of the home crowd in MetLife. This deal has 5-11 written all over it. Of course, we’ve said that kind of thing about Tom Coughlin-coached teams before. Perhaps we should wait … like a week or so.

29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

What a terrible ending to an un-entertaining game. Do those two negatives make Sunday’s loss to the Rams a positive for Lovie Smith‘s Bucs? No. Like, not at all. No team in pro football had a setup like Tampa Bay, which should have had an easy go of it, starting the season with two home games against backup quarterbacks — and yet the Bucs are 0-2, having fallen prey to the likes ofDerek Anderson and Austin Davis. And while we understand the spirit of the 10-second runoff rule, it sure seemed like the Bucs were punished for Mike Evans getting hurt.
