Dominant Pats stay in top spot

By Tom Jackson
Special to

Here's my quick review of everything we saw in Week 2 of the 2002 NFL season:

1. Patriots 2-0 Beaming with confidence after rout of Jets.

2. Dolphins 2-0 Ten touchdowns in two games. Don't lose that number.

3. Broncos 2-0 Kick off season with wins over Rams and 49ers.

4. Saints 2-0 More speed on both sides of ball than 2001 version.

5. Bears 2-0 Dick Jauron's team escapes Georgia Dome with win.

6. Raiders 2-0 Went to the air to topple the Steelers.

7. Chargers 2-0 Didn't let pesky Texans get off to 2-0 start.

8. Carolina 2-0 Simply put, they've doubled their '01 win total.

9. Eagles 1-1 The Birds took the Fun out of the Redskins Gun.

10. Falcons 0-2 Heartbroken Falcons have dropped a pair of squeakers.

Tom moves us up to 4 and the ESPN power rankings have us at 5th this week. I kinda thought a win over GB would do that for us, but a let down against Chicago would cause the \"pros\" to lose faith. We\'re a solid top 5 team if we beat the Bears this Sunday!

4 may be a little high after 2 weeks. The defense has played over their heads and will have to continue to keep us up that high

It is kinda cool to be up there for once. Anyone who has been a long time Saints fan must appreciate it. Keep it up Saints.

Um, putting Chicago ahead of Oakland? I\'m not even sure we should be ahead of Oakland yet, though by the end of the season when Brooks cuts his mistakes way down, we\'ll be able to beat anyone.
