The early slate of Week 2 games possibly provided the most boring slate of games I can ever remember, while the afternoon slate of games delivered one of the best I can remember. Thursday and Sunday Night Football delivered two classics, while Monday Night Football went exactly as planned.

This week’s voters were Pete Sweeney, Ron Kopp Jr, Matt Stagner, Jared Sapp, Stephen Serda, Rocky Magana, Bryan Stewart, Talon Graff, Mark Grunnels and myself.
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1st)
You can’t even be mad with Brady and Gronk anymore — what they are doing at their age is remarkable.
2. Los Angeles Rams (3rd)
Who had Cooper Kupp in their fantasy team!?
3. Kansas City Chiefs (2nd)
The defense is so bad that the Chiefs may be losing their fear factor.
4. Cleveland Browns (4th)
Expected to get the job done in Houston, and they didn’t disappoint.
5. San Francisco 49ers (6th)
It wasn’t pretty against the Eagles, but a win is a win.
6. Buffalo Bills (8th)
Pitching a shutout on the road is not easy.
7. Green Bay Packers (10th)
Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones and Davante Adams — is there a better QB/RB/WR trio in football?
8. Seattle Seahawks (5th)
I wonder what they all think about the new taunting rule?
9. Arizona Cardinals (12th)
The only way is up for the Cardinals at the moment.
10. Baltimore Ravens (14th)
A lot of teams would have crumbled after conceding 35 points in the first 40 minutes. The Ravens showed a lot of character to come from behind.
11. Los Angeles Chargers (7th)
Were there any Chargers fans in LA?
12. Dallas Cowboys (13th)
BIG win in LA.
13. Las Vegas Raiders (21st) | This week’s high risers
The big movers of the week. What a start to the season.
14. New Orleans Saints (9th)
That was the Jameis Winston we all know.
15. Carolina Panthers (19th)
I’m calling out my colleagues here — they are all way too high on the Seahawks and way too low on the Panthers.
16. Tennessee Titans (17th)
Julio Jones was robbed by the officials.
17. Denver Broncos (18th)
Two wins out of two. Teddy is airing the ball out.
18. Pittsburgh Steelers (11th) | This week’s big fallers
Ben Roethlisberger is going to hold this team back. There are some tough decisions made in Pittsburgh.
19. New England Patriots (16th)
They beat the Jets. What’s new?
20. Miami Dolphins (15th)
Embarrassing display in front of their home crowd.
21. Washington Football Team (20th)
Bailed out by an overeager defensive lineman.
22. Philadelphia Eagles (23rd)
I think Eagles fans are just happy that their team is competitive.
23. Indianapolis Colts (22nd)
Carson Wentz is injured again; in other news, water is wet.
24. Chicago Bears (26th)
Attention turns to the medical reports. Will Andy Dalton be healthy enough to go on Sunday?
25. Minnesota Vikings (25th)
This radio call of the missed field goal is gold. Check it out:

This Vikings radio call from the missed field goal is...well...

26. Cincinnati Bengals (24th)
10 really bad minutes from Burrow ended their game against the Bears.
27. Houston Texans (30th)
It would have been interesting to see how Sunday’s game against the Browns played out had Tyrod Taylor not got injured.
28. New York Giants (29th)
Penny for Dexter Lawrence’s thoughts?
29. Atlanta Falcons (27th)
Did well to fight back within 3 points of the Bucs — and then quickly fell away again.
30. New York Jets (28th)
The fact that the Jets are 30th shows how bad the two teams below are.
31. Detroit Lions (31st)
The only thing of note about the Lions this year is how many fantasy points TJ Hockenson and D’Andre Swift are going to get.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars (32nd)
