With the Redskins and Jets set to take the field Thursday (9 p.m., ABC), it's almost time for some real football.

That said, it's time for some Power Rankings, too.

Not surprisingly, the Buccaneers, last year's Super Bowl champions, check in at the No. 1 spot, followed by the the Eagles at No. 2.

In the AFC, the early line has the Titans and the Raiders as the favorite in the conference.

Anyway, on to the rankings.
