2015 NFL power rankings: Arizona Cardinals begin in top 10, per SB Nation writers

New, comments

Where do the Cardinals rank in initial lists?

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The start of the NFL season, we must have power rankings. It will officially start the season of fan arguments. The writers of all the SB Nation NFL blogs ranked all 32 NFL teams and now we have the results of those 32 writers.

At the top of Week 1's power rankings are the Seattle Seahawks, followed by the Green Bay Packers.

What about the Arizona Cardinals? They come in ninth overall.

Writer Danny Kelly, who wrote the commentary for the rankings, has Arizona among the many teams with big question marks.

In Arizona, the Cardinals get their quarterback back, but Carson Palmer will need to stay healthy and prove the knee won't affect his performance. I love the hutzpah of Bruce Arians. He likes to throw the ball deep and his defense will almost surely be aggressive, but the Cardinals have a few big questions to answer.

The fall just below the Pittsburgh Steelers and just ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Where would you have ranked the Cardinals to start the year?
