CBS Sports Power Rankings

CBS agrees that the Saints should be ranked higher than the Falcons.

After watching Peyton Manning take apart the Super Bowl champs, Denver supplants the Niners atop these rankings. And the Saints show they are back with an impressive win over the Falcons, moving up to No. 4.

1. Denver Broncos: Switched top spots with San Francisco because of all the matchup issues the offense presents. So, they didn't run the ball very well last week. Who cares when Peyton Manning throws seven TD passes?

2. San Francisco 49ers: They are very physical up front. Colin Kaepernick just had his first 400-yard passing day and he did it without Michael Crabtree. Anquan Boldin brings a whole other dimension to this team.

3. Seattle Seahawks: Some might think is too high for a team coming off a 12-7 win over Carolina, but they were missing some pass rushers and on the road. Let's see what they do next week with the 49ers before we move them.
PRISCO'S POWER RANKINGS
Only one week, but Niners, Broncos look Super

4. New Orleans Saints: When Sean Payton is back on the sidelines this team is just better. Rob Ryan's defense has been hit hard by injuries but still managed 3 sacks, a fumble recovery and an interception. A steady defense and an explosive offense is a dangerous combination.

5. Dallas Cowboys: Monte Kiffin makes a difference, as with the defense and 6 turnovers is a strong statement. Tony Romo didn't force ball into Dez Bryant, and he took what was open. Having a healthy DeMarco Murray in the backfield makes them a tough out.

6. New England Patriots: Tom Brady got solid production from Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman in the absence of Wes Welker. Shane Vereen is a dangerous weapon who will get better. But They need Rob Gronkowski back ASAP. It must be nice to start the year off against two rookie quarterbacks (EJ Manuel, Geno Smith).

7. Houston Texans: A very balanced team that will be better throwing the ball now that DeAndre Hopkins is on the field. They had a scare in San Diego but showed their ability to fight back into the game for a win. There was a time when they couldn't do that very well.

8. Atlanta Falcons: Protecting Matt Ryan is a concern, especially when you consider the Saints didn't have their top three pass rushers in Week 1 and still got to Ryan three times. The defense limited the Saints to fewer than 3 yards a carry but needs more pass rush.

9. Green Bay Packers: The offensive line is questionable. The defense will get better, especially up front. But the secondary can't let young QBs like Colin Kaepernick throw for more than 400 yards. RG3 is up next.

10. Chicago Bears: New coach Marc Trestman is doing a nice job harnessing QB Jay Cutler, which is a never-ending process. The defense creates turnovers, doing so again in Week 1 (scoring 14 points off those turnovers to beat Cincinnati by 3).

Power Rankings ~ Slightly less sense than BCS rankings. Unless I had spinach the night before I read them.

Re: CBS Sports Power Rankings

Omygoodlord you have to be kidding. Are we going to have to beat you all across the head and neck with boudin until you stop this ridiculous power ranking idiocy?

Take the 12 step process to rid yourselves of the temptation. Step 1 - don't click on it. Step 2 - make fun of a clowns fan. Repeat step 2 10 more times.
