We still don’t know much about the NFL after one week of the regular season.  The prelude to week two is often about overreaction to week one and there is plenty of that in these power rankings.
 
You saw an impressive victory by the Patriots at Arizona, the Steelers at Washington, and the defending champs (Broncos) held serve at home against the Panthers.
 
My up and coming teams all looked worthy; Oakland and Tampa Bay in victory and even Jacksonville in defeat.
 
Major surprises from week one: Detroit winning on the road and San Francisco winning at all!
 
Major disappointments include Arizona, Washington, Seattle and Los Angeles.
 
Tennessee, Chicago and Miami were better in defeat than some in victory.
 
Trying to tone down the overreaction as best I can, here is my week two - power index.
