2011 NFL Power Rankings: Week 3

Week:

So, what do we know after Week 2 in the NFL?

Well, it's clear the Packers and Patriots are entrenched atop ESPN.com's Power Rankings, while the Browns, Colts and Seahawks have the look of season-long bottom dwellers.

Answers about other teams are not so clear. The Bills are 2-0 and jump 11 spots this week but still have not cracked the top 15. We'll know much more about them after they host the Patriots this week. The Titans are just behind Buffalo after moving up eight spots, with a bad loss and a good win to their credit. And what to make of the surprising Redskins, who are in the top half of the rankings at 2-0?

Our voters (ESPN.com's John Clayton, ESPN.com's Ashley Fox, AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky, NFC West blogger Mike Sando and AFC East blogger James Walker) have thoughts on other big movers, such as the Texans, Broncos, Chiefs and Jaguars (see below).

Additional clarity will hopefully come out of the Week 3 schedule, which features Green Bay at Chicago, Atlanta at Tampa Bay and Washington at Dallas on "Monday Night Football."
