That didn't take very long.
Shakeup permeates this week's pecking order, top to bottom. Not a single team from last week's top 10 stayed put. A whopping 30 squads shed their old location, making these Power Rankings quite frenetic.
Of all the movers, the Packers and Chiefs are the most noticeable. The Super Bowl I combatants occupy the top two slots after the opening week of play. Green Bay took the throne by beating a top-flight team, thanks largely to spectacular defense. Kansas City, meanwhile, ventured into hostile ground and toppled the NFL's premier organization. An argument could be made for Andy Reid's club leaping the Packers -- well, if only team leader Eric Berry had not been lost in the process. As for those who would back the Raiders, they must beat the Chiefs before fans criticize the Patriots for not doing so.
All in all, it was an opening weekend flush with ridiculousness ...
Check out all of the up/down arrows below, brosef.
Karl Mecklenburg blocked John Carney's game-tying field-goal attempt. It was wild.
Honestly, nothing this early in the season should be too surprising, because we don't glean nearly as much information from the preseason as we think we do. Thus, you'll find a ton of movement below. So, let me know your over/underreaction: @HarrisonNFL is the place.
Let the dissension commence!
PROGRAMMING NOTE: For more in-depth analysis on the updated league pecking order, tune in to NFL Network every Tuesday night at 6 p.m. ET for the "NFL Power Rankings" show.
1) Aaron Rodgers.
3) The improvement in the secondary. So often, Russell Wilson couldn't find anywhere to go with the football on Sunday, which -- as opposed to his much-maligned offensive line -- was the culprit behind the pressure he faced.
5) Mike Daniels (1.5 sacks, seven tackles and several QB hits) continued to be one of the unsung premier players in the NFL.
6) Aaron Rodgers.
***UPDATE:** David Johnson will have wrist surgery this week and is expected to miss 2-3 months.* </content:power-ranking>
