Week 2 Power Rankings

Peter King ranks them 1st:  Any arguments? Didn't think so.

Pro Football Weekly ranks them 2nd:  First team to keep them under 30 points wins!

National Football Post ranks them 2nd:  Can anyone stop Brady and the Pats offense? Ridiculous numbers (again) for the New England QB.

WEEI ranks them 2nd:  Tony Dungy said Sunday night that Tom Brady and the Patriots look like the 2007 team that went 18-1. It’s tough to disagree. The Patriots offense has been unstoppable over the first two games while the "bend but don’t break defense" has forced key turnovers.

Pete Prisco ranks them 2nd:  Can anybody stop Brady? He will take down all the records at this rate. Get ready for a shootout in Buffalo.

ESPN ranks them 2nd:  Tom Brady is on pace for a 7,500-yard season, but he'll likely only get to 5,000.

The Sporting News ranks them 2nd:  TEs Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez are each electrifying as receivers, both in stretching the field and getting open in the end zone. Unfortunately, Hernandez (knee) may be out for a while. 

SB Nation ranks them 2nd:  940 passing yards for Tom Brady through two games. This is going to be a fun season to watch. ranks them 2nd: Speaking of Tecmo Bowl numbers, Tom Brady has thrown for 940 yards in two games. His team just keeps rolling, taking the Chargers' best punches and still coming out with a W. One could make a case for the Pats being the best team in the NFL. Just think, if the Pack and Pats meet on Super Sunday, it will be a Super Bowl XXXI rematch, only one of the most boring big games ever.

Brian Billick ranks them 2nd:  Tom Brady is playing with unbelievable efficiency combined with just the right amount of explosive plays. Tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez form the best inside threat in the game, but the defense is becoming a concern.

Cold Hard Football Facts ranks them 2nd:  There are plenty of amazing numbers to talk about, but how about this one: the Patriots are No. 31 in yards allowed … but 13th in scoring defense, thanks to a Bendability Index number of 21.3 yards allowed per point, which is off the charts. But what isn’t off the charts with this team?

Pro Football Talk ranks them 3rd:  Tom Brady is on pace to throw for more than 4.2 miles this year.

Don Banks ranks them 2nd:  Maybe I'm in the distinct minority on this, but I'm not sure I really want to see behind the green curtain in the case of that Bill Belichick all-access documentary by NFL Films. Know what I'm saying? There are times when revealing looks can be too revealing. I know there's more to the man in the hoodie than what we get on game day, but let's just leave a little mystery intact until it's really time for the career retrospective. What's the rush?

Michael Silver ranks them 2nd:  How fun was it to watch Vince Wilfork rumble 28 yards after picking off a Philip Rivers pass – and how many of you remember the way-more-awesome, 61-yard interception return for a touchdown by the 49ers’ 326-pound nose tackle, Michael Carter, in a 1990 playoff victory over the Redskins at Candlestick Park?
