The common refrain you’ve no doubt heard uttered time and time again this past week is that you cannot overreact to what took place on the gridiron in Week 1. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t react at all. Take the Philadelphia Eagles, for example. Most of us had no idea what to expect from Chip Kelly’s new offense in the team’s season-opener at defending division champion Washington. But after 53 first half offensive plays that resulted in 322 total yards and 26 points, it became clear that quarterback Michael Vick and company had a solid understanding of how to run the Birds’ new offense.

As you’ll notice below, we’ve made some adjustments to our preseason power rankings, but we haven’t overhauled the entire rundown after just sixty minutes of action.

The numbers in brackets indicate each team’s Power Ranking, which is based on a scale of 1-100. These numbers can be used as a baseline to determine the point spread between any two teams on the list. Keep in mind that these numbers do not account for home field advantage, situational analysis (extra rest, back-to-back road games, divisional rivalries, etc), injuries, weather or public perception. They are merely to be used as a baseline for your initial analysis.
