After Week 1 of the 2009 NFL season, the power rankings of the best teams in the league is easier to determine. Here’s a look at the 2009 NFL power rankings heading into Week 2:
1. Pittsburgh Steelers
Although their running game needs some work, the Steelers looked strong in Week 1 and should be considered the favorites for the time being.
2. Philadelphia Eagles
The Donovan McNabb injury is worrisome but the Eagles were scary good to begin the 2009 NFL season as they dismantled the Panthers.
3. New York Giants
The Giants looked strong and Eli Manning appears to have enough receiving options to make things work this season.
4. New England Patriots
Almost losing to the Bills wasn’t a great way to begin the season but this team is talented, deep and has Super Bowl experience.
5. Minnesota Vikings
If Adrian Peterson can keep running like he did in Week 1 and Brett Favre plays smart, this squad has very high potential.
