Power Rankings: My ballot and the division

By Paul Kuharsky

The team that’s held up the top of the ESPN.com NFL Power Rankings for the AFC South for as long as I’ve been voting is sinking like a rock.

Want to put a value on Peyton Manning to the Colts? In power ranking terms, it’s roughly 25 spots.

The 0-2 Colts stand at 30th in the new edition of our poll, ahead of just Seattle and Kansas City. One of our five panelists, Mike Sando of the NFC West, put Indianapolis 32nd.

Reminder: I’m just one of five ballots. You’ll find a roundup of all of them HERE. Mine is also below.

I welcome your venom in my mailbag, just please make it accurate venom.

Here’s the AFC South:
