Continuing from: Picks 20-11
10.) Dallas Cowboys (1-0)
Last Week: 5
Did Ezekiel Elliott quit on his team? He did only get four carries by halftime. Maybe the coaching staff quit on the Cowboys. The Cowboys ran the ball 14 times and passed 50 times. Not a good recipe for a win.
9.) Seattle Seahawks (1-0)
Last Week: 7
I still think the Seahawks have the best defense in the NFL but their offense makes me do the monkey over my face emoji. It's brutal to watch. That offensive line is horrifying.
8.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0)
Last Week: 10
The Buccaneers took care of business blowing out the Bears. The defense looked fierce and the offense played alright. Winston missed DeSean Jackson on two deep balls that if he connected with him on those, the hype would be even higher for the Bucs.
7.) Green Bay Packers (1-1)
Last Week: 1
The Packers just got flat out beat by the Falcons. Jordy Nelson left this game and my ranking is based on him not playing in Week 3. The Packers are totally different on offense when he isn't on the field.
6.) Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0)
Last Week: 4
The Steelers beat a Vikings team lead by Case Keenum at the quarterback position. This offense still hasn't performed like we all hoped but the defense has looked good.
5.) Denver Broncos (2-0)
Trevor Siemian is playing perfectly for what the Broncos want to do. The Broncos want to play stellar defense and run the ball. Holding a Cowboys team to only 17 points is impressive.
4.) Oakland Raiders (2-0)
Last Week: 6
The Raiders dropped 45 on the Jets. Yes, the Jets are bad but the Jets defense is an average defense. What I love about the Raiders is that offensive line, Carr has all day to throw and the running backs get running lanes that Vince Wilfork could run threw.
3.) New England Patriots (1-1)
Last Week: 3
Patriots offense looked amazing. Sure the Saints have a bad defense but the Patriots could have scored 60 points this past week but took their foot off the pedal after halftime after a few more of their players got banged up.
2.) Kansas City Chiefs (2-0)
Last Week: 2
The Chiefs again showed why they are in the top two and it was hard to not make them one. The Chiefs continue to play smart football and lean on rookie running back Kareem Hunt.
1.) Atlanta Falcons (2-0)
Last Week: 8
Big jump from eight to one but I think they deserve it. The defense slowed down the Packers and their offense scored whenever they wanted to. If this is what a Super Bowl hangover looks like, I'll have what the Falcons are having.
