After two games, heading into week three of the NFL season the Arizona Cardinals sit with a lot of other NFL teams... In the middle.

What we know is that there are some really good teams, some really bad teams and then a lot of teams that we just need to keep watching.

Here are your week three power rankings.

The Best of the Best

Rank any of these four teams at the top and you can make an argument that you are right.

  1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-0)

2. Atlanta Falcons (2-0)

3. Oakland Raiders (2-0)

Looking Good and Taking Advantage

Are they good or are they taking advantage of scheduling? Right now

4. Denver Broncos (2-0)

5. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0)

6. Baltimore Ravens (2-0)

7. Carolina Panthers (2-0)

Probably Going to win the Super Bowl

New England is better than probably every team in group two. They are likely as good if not better than every team in group one. Yet, it is week two and they have a loss, so let’s penalize them while we still can.

8. New England Patriots (1-1)

Flawed Contenders

The Lions are 2-0 but I can’t buy them as legitimate right now, the Eagles need steadier play out of their offense, Tampa Bay has only played one game against a woeful Bears team and the Packers are already decimated by injuries.

9. Detroit Lions (2-0)

10. Philadelphia Eagles (1-1)

11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0)

12. Green Bay Packers (1-1)

I don’t know what to make of them

Take any of these teams and put them in any order and I am not sure you will be wrong... or right. These are the teams I can’t really pinpoint yet.

13. Tennessee Titans (1-1)

14. Washington Redskins (1-1)

15. Los Angeles Rams (1-1)

16. Dallas Cowboys (1-1)

17. Miami Dolphins (1-0)

18. Arizona Cardinals (1-1)

19. Seattle Seahawks (1-1)

20. Minnesota Vikings (1-1)

21. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1)

22. Buffalo Bills (1-1)

They’re Not Dead Yet, but it is close

The Chargers and Giants look like they need some divine intervention, while the Saints just need to find their defense. One game, under a rookie QB on a short week, on the road. Yet, the Texans don’t look like a playoff team... right now.

23. Los Angeles Chargers (0-2)

24. New York Giants (0-2)

25. New Orleans Saints (0-2)

26. Houston Texans (1-1)

Not as Bad as it Looks

Both teams are struggling on offense, but have shown flashes on defense. At least the Browns can blame their rookie quarterback.

27. Cleveland Browns (0-2)

28. Cincinnati Bengals (0-2)

Contending for the First Pick

I don’t think the Colts end up here, Brissett will help and when Luck gets back, they’ll be a middle of the pack team, but for now, the 49ers have played better. The Bears and Jets are bad at football.

29. San Francisco 49ers (0-2)

30. Indianapolis Colts (0-2)

31. Chicago Bears (0-2)

32. New York Jets (0-2)
