September 18, 2013, 9:15 pm
Check out the rankings going into Week 3:
Scott: The Broncos aren't just beating teams, they're annihilating them. Manning has the offense clicking on all cylinders.
Jake: How good can Denver become? Will it be 12, 13 or 14 wins?
Scott: Good luck to any team that has to play at CenturyLink Field come January.
Jake: The Seahawks were the team flexing after their Week 2 win over the 49ers.
Scott: There isn't a quarterback better than Aaron Rodgers in the NFL right now ... FACT.
Jake: Didn’t look like the same team from one week ago.
Scott: Still a Top 3 team in the NFC despite an embarrassing, uninspiring performance in Seattle on SNF.
Jake: I think it’s safe to say Aaron Rodgers will tear you apart if you let him.
Scott: If the defense continues to play at this level, watch out NFC.
Jake: If DeAndre Hopkins continues to develop, Houston will be a legitimate threat.
Scott: Survived another scare. DeAndre Hopkins provides a dimension the Texans haven't had the last few years.
Jake: Barely escaped Tampa Bay with a win. We know how good the Saints are at home, but they have to improve on the road or they will lose some respect.
Scott: The Patriots offense badly needs Gronk and Amendola back. Dobson and Thompkins aren't cutting it.
Jake: Still underachieving, but a quality win over the Rams was key.
Scott: Has Jay Cutler turned the corner? Signs are pointing up.
Jake: A pair of come-from-behind victories has Chicago feeling sky-high.
Scott: Injuries are mounting up for the Falcons. Defense was torched in the second half by Sam Bradford in Sunday's victory.
Jake: The Patriots will rise when Gronkowski returns.
Scott: The Law Firm is solid, but Bernard showed why he's threat to score every time he touches ball in their victory over Pittsburgh.
Jake: Cincy has a new dynamic weapon in Gio Bernard.
Scott: I think Mike Wallace is happy again. Impressive road win over the Colts has their arrow pointing up.
Jake: The heat is on in Miami…only it’s the football team that is grabbing headlines.
Scott: What happened to the Ravens offense?
Jake: A narrow win over the Browns was only the second best thing a Flacco delivered last Sunday.
Scott: The Chiefs are finally healthy and are a force to be reckon with in the AFC.
Jake: Kansas City is proving they are for real. It’s the defense that will face a big test in Philly this week.
Scott: Andrew Luck has been great, and Trent Richardson makes their offense scary.
Jake: Dallas has another tough opponent in Week 3 as the Rams make a visit.
Scott: Shouldn't be that hard to convert on third down with guys like Bryant and Witten.
Jake: New York will face an equally desperate Panthers squad in Carolina.
Scott: Tavon Austin is the most explosive rookie in the NFL ... FACT.
Jake: Larry Fitzgerald’s hamstring injury is a concern, but I think Arizona will continue to surprise in 2013.
Scott: Who had Eddie Royal as the NFL touchdown leader through Week 2 in their office pool?
Jake: Detroit has all of the talent in the world, but can they stay disciplined enough to contend for a playoff spot.
Scott: Why haven't the Lions found a compliment to Calvin Johnson in the passing game?
Jake: Luck and the Colts ran up against an improved Miami team and now have the daunting task of trying to win in San Francisco.
Scott: Another track meet on Sunday, but Philly's defense couldn't find a way to get off the field.
Jake: Minnesota may be the most talented 0-2 team in the NFL. We will see if the Vikings show up this week against the Browns or fade into irrelevancy.
Scott: I think Eli Manning just threw another interception.
Jake: E.J. Manuel got emotional in a thrilling win over the Panthers. Now the rookie can’t let up against the lowly Jets in Week 3.
Scott: The Bills made the right move in drafting Manuel ... FACT.
Jake: Which Rams team will we see in 2013?
Scott: Defense is bad, but the Cardinals offense will keep them in a bunch of games this season.
Jake: The season starts now! No, now! Wait. How about now?
Scott: I think the Titans are for real.
Jake: I think Philly may have come back down to reality.
Scott: Were one play away from ending their losing streak at Soldier Field.
Jake: Cam Newton needs to right the ship or his head coach may be gone.
Scott: What happened to the Redskins defense. Their secondary has been abused so far in 2013.
Jake: Alright, Philip Rivers proved me wrong two weeks in a row. He won’t do it a third time.
Scott: The clock is ticking on Ron Rivera's tenure in Carolina.
Jake: Maybe Darrelle Revis should just take over and be player/coach.
Scott: Pryor and McFadden (if healthy) could provide a lethal combination for the Raiders offense.
Jake: I was going use a clever Disney movie reference here, but I can’t recall the name of that film. I’m just really at a loss, similar to Tennessee. Oh, I ‘Remember the Titans’ now!
Scott: How long until fans start calling for Tim Tebow again? Or has that already happened?
Jake: The Steelers can save their season with a win over the Bears. Not sure it’s going to happen though.
Scott: It doesn't get any easier for the Steelers with the Bears looming on SNF.
Jake: When your quarterback is Terrelle Pryor you might as well stay on the bus.
Scott: All the Browns have to show for two first rounders in 2012 is Weeden and future first. Sad.
Jake: Geno Smith is the next…Mark Sanchez. You mark my words NYC.
Scott: Just feed the ball to Doug Martin, it's that simple.
Jake: How serious is MJD’s injury? Ahhh, it really doesn’t matter. Jacksonville is awful.
Scott: TEBOW! TEBOW! TEBOW!
Jake: Cleveland just fell below Jacksonville simply for the fact that they traded their top star to the Colts.
