    If the Vikings O-line continues to play like that, I would put them in the good category. They already had a good defense.

    Bengals might not have played well on Sunday but I can't see them being one of the 5 worst teams in the league. I expect them to be in the wild card hunt during the final month of the season.

    If you are ranking based on week 1 the Pats were not good.

    I would give more love to minny and Chicago. Imo Chicago should have won their game. Minny looked really good last night from the little bit that I saw

    I wouldn't write off the Texans so fast, especially as the season progresses, considering their studly D and Watson growing his sea legs with each progressive game.

    I can agree with that, imo this year Is like a redshirt year for the Texans. Get Watson some experience and chemistry built with his playmaker and let JJ Watt and that defense shake off the injury rust and look out next year for the Texans

    I would put Seattle in the decent category, they have no run game and there offensive line has got to be one of the worst in the NFL, they are going to get Wilson killed. Their defense is good and will keep them in games

    I was impressed with Oakland, Jacksonville Dallas and Minnesota. All surprisingly, played well defensively on Sunday/Monday. Fornette, TJ Watt and Dalvin Cookall look like the real deal. Loved watch those kids play this past weekend.

    The Jags defense look like they will be the 1 defense this year.
    The Cowboys look good but the Giants are due for a regression this year (due to ELI Manning)
    Minnesota,Seattle,Eagles, Cheifs,Rams,Packers, and the Ravens looked good

    I've never been in love with that offense. They seem to score just enough even when they're good. That said, they had similar issues at the beginning on 2016 and got it somewhat sorted out. We'll see if they can do it again.

    I agree. Sam Bradford played extremely well last night making throws consistently in tight windows and on the move. Impressive first game even if the Saints probably won't be that good.

    I honestly believe that our undefeated season is one of the records that may never be tied. Winning 19 straight professional NFL games is damn near impossible...Hoping I am not jinxing ourselves...!

    Wouldn't be surprised if the superbowl was Raiders/Steelers/Chiefs Cowboys/Packers/Falcons. Half of the league looks stinky good. Like, you can smell the victory from a mile away good. Minnesota looks good but 1 injury and they're toast. As you saw in preseason, their depth is garbage. The Rams also look ridiculous but they were playing Indy who looks to be this year's dumpster squad next to the Jets.

    That was the best game Sam Bradford has ever played and the best game played by a qb period in week 1.

    He was exceptional. I lost count of how many big boy throws he made

    Jags win is vastly overrated as was the Rams

    There D is going to be on the field a lot this year and they will wear down

    Jags best defense? Based upon Savage and a rookie in Watson who only played a half? I don't think so

    That bengals oline is gonna ruin their season and bring out all Andy daltons warts. They sure are deep with quality on the dline

    I haven't seen baltimore yet but I will be surprised if when I do I don't see holes considering all their attrition.

    I don't need to see the skins. I saw enough of Kirk cousins to know that's not gonna do it.

    Houston needs to play to the defense with deshaun Watson. Go heavy zone read like they did once Watson came in. Tom savage had to have the shortest leash going into the season of any qb. After that it's probably mike glennon in chi town who the fans will demand be pulled for trubisky the moment he has a bad game.

    I'm sure Thursday on a short week cinci is gonna see a ton of zone read. Ride or die with the Texans d.

    Red flags should go off if Houston can't expose that cinci oline

    Indianapolis is a joke and that was before Andrew luck was gonna miss the first month. Fire the head coach. He's gotten 2 years of free passes now.

    I can't decide if the cowboys have found that much pass rush or if the giants tackles are just that bad. I think it's the latter.

    Not many teams are gonna score points on the giants though. Saving grace

    Same thing with Seattle where Sheldon richardson fits that team like a glove and when motivated and has his head in the game is an animal.

    Both these teams defenses may wear down though on d with the time of possession they look to be on the field this year. Of course i say that about Seattle every year and then they end up top 5 every year with the only thing holding em back attrition. Like when earl Thomas went down last year.

    I think its more based on the fact that the Jags ranked 6th last year and improved by adding AJ Bouye, Calais Campbell, Barry Church and now have Myles Jack starting at MLB.

    Tennessee needs to try and trade Eric decker at the trade deadline. They need to clear snaps for the top 5 pick Corey Davis who already looks the part and get the 3rd round pick Taylor slot run. There's too many bodies not enough snaps.

    For coming from a small school Corey Davis is one polished kid.

    They have rishard Matthews who can play a solid #2.

    What did you guys think about Glennons performance last week? I have a few bears fan friends who argue mitch would have won that game and that Glennon is the worst thing on the planet. I only agreed that mitch would have won if he ran it in himself at the end.

    I didn't see the bears so I can't comment but it's only a matter of time before trubisky starts.

    He looks the most ready of any of the rookie qbs and to go from a college spread one year starter to a pro style and look the part out the gate even well I can't even recall it.

    Chicago fans have to be foaming at the mouth waiting. Doesn't help that their wr corp has been decimated by injury already.

    Tom Coughlin has his finger prints all over that Jacksonville franchise. It's not going to surprise me, one bit, when they start winning in spite of the question marks surrounding the QB position. The defense has the players to improve on their # 6 ranking of last season. And now have a running game to go with that defense. Coughlin IMHO understands how to win in the NFL. He'll figure out that QB thing soon enough.

    Rivers was ignoring Gates the whole game, I hope he continues that trend.

    The Giants need to dump Eli Manning Asap, He's been one of the most overrated quartebacks for at least a decade.
