I'm a Patriots fan and I'm skeptical that they are #1 at this point in the season since IMO the win over ARI was quite lucky.... absent that low snap who knows what might have happened.

I don't put too much stock in the rankings especially after one game. The only ranking I follow is "cold hard football facts" which is based only on stats and after one game the Pats are ranked #25 and the the Rams who lost 28-0 to the 49ers are ranked #5.

I'll start looking at the rankings after 10 games or so. All other rankings are just based on opinions of the so called "experts". How do they rank teams before the season starts?

I'd love to see the "cold hard football facts" that rank the Rams at #5. With 185 total offensive yards and only 65 of those on the ground, how could they possibly be ranked anywhere above next to the last? Their defense wasn't bad, but seriously! How about a link. I'd love to see the logic.

Not sure what you are looking at but if you look at post #118 you will see that the LA Rams are ranked 31 out of 32 teams.

Agree. As I said before I usually wait a few more games before I check the rankings on that site.

The Buffalo Bills' defense gives up 37 points to the Jets and their offense score 31 points and this morning they fire the offensive coordinator

Watching the game I thought the defense was playing awful and the offense was OK. If anyone to be fired after only two games it should have been the defensive coordinator but wait that's Rex' brother.

Forte is the real deal. 100 yds, 3 TDs. He's a young 30 year old by the way he stays in shape. I'm still upset that the Bears had no interest in keeping him.

Glad the Cowboys could hang on for the win. Seemed like the Dak and Cole Beasley show today, plus a few clutch plays by the defense when needed.

NFL: 2016 Season

Well lets see if history can avoid repeating itself. Chargers blew a 21 point lead last week, and are now up 21-0 at half this week.
My Ravens season over bet is off to a nice 2-0 start, but they have looked less than impressive at times in beating two mediocre teams at best....ok, they are bad teams...But that is why I took the bet because they got the last place schedule to play.

I'm not going to mention the Texans for fear I'll jinx them next week.

I'm a Texan fan but have never expected too much from them. (Same with the Oilers before them) Osweiler was intercepted again this week on first first series. However, overall, they played about as well today as I've ever seen them play. MegaWatt seems to be back "near" 100% and is starting to rack up sacks and fumble recoveries. At least they don't have to face Brady when they play the Patriots Thursday night.

Another good day for me too. I usually bet the same amount each week on the Texans. "Sometimes" I will bet on the Cowboys and Saints when I can find even money bets and depending on who they are playing. I also bet on the Broncos last year but have dropped them off my watch list. I may add Green Bay this year,,,, maybe....

They won't even face Brady's backup as he got hurt in the first half against Miami.
