With Week 2 of the season in the books, Nate Conley takes a look around the League and ranks all 32 NFL teams.
What goes better with football than lists? Okay, I can probably think of a few other things that would probably rank higher on the chart but, be honest, we all secretly love these. Therefore, with two weeks of football in the books I thought it would make sense to start a running account of the hierarchy in the National Football League. This will be the first installment as we advance through the season, altering the list based off of each week’s results as we go. Yeah, I think you guys understand how this works. It’s not sabermetrics. Here goes nothing.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Pete Carroll stood in the center of the locker room and gathered his Seattle Seahawks around him. They were Super Bowl champions, and they had the Lombardi Trophy after routing the Denver Broncos 43-8 on Sunday night.
Defense wins championships, and the NFL has not seen a defense like Seattle’s in a long time.
What will matter most? The fact that Seattle has no players with Super Bowl experience, or their youth and speed and top-ranked defense? Or will the game be won by Denver’s suddenly stout rush defense and Peyton Manning’s blessed right arm?
Owner Of Pro Football Reference, FootballGuys.Com Staffer and NY Times freelance writer Chase Stuart Previews The Super Bowl. Can Peyton win his 2nd or will it be Russell Wilson and the Seahawks?
