NFL Week 2 Power Rankings: Chiefs rise to No. 2 while Super Bowl teams fall, but don’t overreact to wild start

chiefspowerranks.png

We’ve had one week of the NFL season and let’s just say it’s already nuts.

The San Francisco 49ers, considered a possible Super Bowl team, lost on the road to the Chicago Bears, who are far from it. 

The Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts tied in a game that the Texans actually dominated.

The Cincinnati Bengals lost a game in overtime to the Pittsburgh Steelers thanks to a blocked extra point on the final play in regulation, a game that started with Joe Burrow looking awful.

The New Orleans Saints needed a late kick to rally to beat the Atlanta Falcons as their supposedly dominant defense sure didn’t look that way in that game.

It was just a weird open to the season. The only two constants were the dominance shown by the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs. They both opened on the road with statement victories that featured high-flying offenses with their star passers putting on impressive shows.

The Bills remain in the top spot of my Power Rankings, with the Chiefs now in the second spot. Just remember, though, it’s just one week for all 32 teams. That means overreactions all this week leading into the second week.

Such as: 

The Packers are done.

The Patriots can’t score.

The Eagles are going to the Super Bowl.

Maybe one or two of those will be true, but not yet. It’s way too early. We can’t get a true gauge on this league until October. We really won’t know the true contenders until November, when separation really begins. 

So take that into account when reading these Power Rankings. Just because a team pulled off an upset doesn’t mean they should shoot up 10 spots. Let it play out for a bit.

The Bears won’t finish with a better

NFL Power Rankings: Broncos, Ravens, Chargers among big risers post-draft, Rams stay No. 1, new team in cellar

Aside from a few veteran moves here and there, most NFL teams have a good idea of who they will be bringing to training camp. That means with free agency and the 2022 NFL Draft behind us, it’s time for another batch of my Power Rankings.

I bet you can’t wait.

I always keep the defending Super Bowl champions in the top spot until the regular season kicks off, so the Los Angeles Rams stay there. There is no reason to believe they can’t be in the mix to win it all again. 

They will once again be a talented team loaded with stars, but general manager Les Snead also knows how to supplement his roster with young players who can contribute. That won’t change, which is why the Rams remain in the top spot.

Some teams have moved up in these Power Rankings after impressive offseasons, while others have fallen off because they haven’t kept up. The NFL formula seems to be about going for it now, which is the formula the Rams used to win a Super Bowl last year.

In a league of copycats, that seems to be catching on. That’s why the offseason has been wild with a ton of big-name trades that have kept the interest at an all-time high.

The top team from the AFC in these rankings is the Buffalo Bills. I think they were the best team at the end of last season and would have won it all, were it not for those horribly-played 13 seconds at the end of the playoff loss to the Chiefs.

The Bills have done a nice job of filling in some key spots this offseason, but made a big splash adding pass rusher Von Miller. Sacking the quarterback late in games won’t be an issue

Novice Kettlebell Exercise for Power and Endurance

If you’ve at any time stepped foot at a health club, you’ve got possibly noticed a person undertaking a kettlebell swing. Even even though kettlebells are take into consideration a standard “will have to” in pretty much each body weight home, the functional instrument usually receives confined to a handful of moves. And that’s a shame, due to the fact according to Alexandra Sweeney, NASM, a trainer with JAXJOX, the bell-shaped instrument is a person of the most multipurpose weights the gymnasium has to offer. So if you might be looking for a newbie kettlebell work out that will pave a basis for a lifelong relationship with this multitasking software. Look at out dumbbells.

According to Sweeney, kettlebells are a great addition to your power coaching toolkit simply because they can be used to isolate precise muscle teams or your whole entire body. “Kettlebells are great for total physique conditioning , indicating that so several kettlebell routines use your total physique,” she claims. Furthermore, though dumbbell physical exercises tend to be static, kettlebell movements are typically dynamic, demanding your overall body in new and one of a kind techniques. “Kettlebell routines also do a fantastic task of combining power and cardio. The means to swing and incorporate other explosive, strong movements—such as cleans and snatches—makes the kettlebell stand out from dumbbells and barbells,” adds Sweeney.

An additional significant reward of kettlebell is simply that they’re much easier to keep than dumbbells. The rounded form of the kettlebell makes it possible for you to distribute pounds extra very easily in your palms, which makes a large change as you start to select up higher and better weights.  For instance: Think about performing a squat when holding a hefty dumbbell at your chest versus holding a kettlebell.

Suns

Ho hum, another week, another four wins for the Suns, who have now rattled off eight in a row. The win over the surging Mavs was impressive, and Phoenix played all week without big man Deandre Ayton, as Bismack Biyombo, JaVale McGee and Jalen Smith filled in the center minutes.
