Check out the rankings going into Week 2:
Scott: Peyton Manning is showing no signs of slowing down.
Jake: 49 points vs. Ravens, plus Von Miller and Champ Bailey haven’t even played yet.
Scott: Kaepernick proved why he belongs in the upper echelon of NFL quarterbacks.
Jake: I think Kaepernick believes he’s the best all-around QB in the NFL. I don’t think I’m going to argue.
Scott: May be the 2nd best team in the NFC, unfortunately ran into the No. 1 team last Sunday.
Jake: Not an overly impressive offensive debut, but the defense certainly got it done.
Scott: Early season bragging rights on the line against the 49ers this weekend.
Jake: Green Bay did all they could to keep up with the 49ers, but they ran out of gas.
Scott: Bills gave them a scare, but Brady and company found a way once again.
Jake: Started 2013 like they finished last season – flat. Still have a ton of potential.
Scott: Didn't expect the Saints defense to look as good as they did against Atlanta.
Jake: Who would’ve thought we would be talking about how good the Saints defense was after Week 1?
Scott: Something about this Texans team has me thinking they will fail to live up to expectations once again.
Jake: Not a great showing by the Falcons to start the season. I expect this team to improve greatly.
Scott: Did they miss their opportunity in 2012?
Jake: The Bears stopped a highly-touted Bengals team and proved Trestman’s offense is an upgrade.
Scott: Impressive win over the Bengals has heightened expectations in Chicago.
Jake: New England nearly got clipped by the Bills, but Tom Brady will keep this team in the playoff hunt all season long.
Scott: Bengals say they beat themselves on Sunday ... the Bears may say differently.
Jake: The Bengals are still the best team in the AFC North, they just ran into an equally talented opponent in Chicago.
Scott: Luck and the Colts needed a late comeback to hold off the lowly Raiders.
Jake: The defense will make things much more interesting in Big D this season.
Scott: Loss of Jones will hurt more than some people think.
Jake: Was it just me or did the Lions look like a playoff team against the Vikings?
Scott: Chip Kelly's offense looked great, but time will tell once the league catches on.
Jake: The Ravens got a raw deal when they had to start the season on the road vs. Broncos.
Scott: Ugly win on SNF, but what else do you expect from a Cowboys-Giants game.
Jake: Was it just me or did the Giants NOT look like a playoff team against the Cowboys?
Scott: Reggie Bush running wild doesn't bode well for the rest of the NFC.
Jake: Minnesota may take a step back this season. Probably a mistake to bet against Adrian Peterson though.
Scott: Did the Dolphins win? All we keep hearing about is Mike Wallace.
Jake: I say if that Monday night game would’ve went another five minutes that the Redskins get the W.
Scott: Bradford to Cook. We'll be hearing that a lot this season.
Jake: Need to do more to impress me in Week 2. Still a win is a win, even if it’s against the Raiders.
Scott: Need a productive David Wilson to compete in the NFC East this year.
Jake: Miami may have enough pieces in place to do some damage, but it’s still too early to tell.
Scott: Could be the most improved team in 2013.
Jake: Sam Bradford may have found a key ingredient that’s been missing in tight end Jared Cook.
Scott: Schedule doesn't get any easier with the Packers on tap.
Jake: Although they blew out the Jaguars, Kansas City still has holes.
Scott: Fans are already calling for a QB change in Minnesota.
Jake: Carson Palmer will keep Arizona in most games this season. Oh, and that Larry Fitzgerald guy isn’t too bad either.
Scott: Defense looked impressive in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.
Jake: Chip Kelly ya’ll…Chip Kelly ya’ll
Scott: Could surprise a few people this season.
Jake: Not sure how good Carolina will be, but keeping it tight with Seattle was as impressive as any Week 1 loss.
Scott: Palmer is a huge upgrade in Arizona. Offense will keep them in some games.
Jake: Where in the world is…C.J. Spiller?
Scott: They are a much better team than they showed against the Jets.
Jake: Terrelle Pryor hasn’t looked this good since he got some fresh ink in college. Only this time he didn’t have to risk his eligibility.
Scott: Still a few years away from contending, but I like the direction they're headed.
Jake: The Chargers probably deserve to be higher, but let’s slow down the Philip Rivers bandwagon for a minute.
Scott: Honestly, the Steelers may be the worst team in the AFC North.
Jake: Tennessee’s defense may be great, but that offense is pretty average.
Scott: Jordan Cameron ... enough said.
Jake: If you lose to the Jets it’s an automatic bottom five ranking. You reap what you sow Tampa Bay.
Scott: This could be the highest I'll have the Jets ranked all season.
Jake: I would not be shocked if Steelers fans start waving white towels by season’s end.
Scott: Philip Rivers giveth ... Philip Rivers taketh away.
Jake: How can the Jets win their opener and still be ranked this low? Let’s just say the Jets will crash and burn faster than you can say Miley Cyrus.
Scott: At least Pryor gives Raiders fans a reason to watch.
Jake: Cleveland…Cleveland…Cleveland…oh, how I sympathize with you Cleveland!
Scott: The Henne era is back!
Jake: Drafting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will be worth the ridicule all season long.
