1. Bills (1-0; No. 3): They’ll go as far as Josh Allen can take them. And he can take them all the way.

2. Chiefs (1-0; No. 4): Anyone who slept on the Chiefs is now wide awake.

3. Buccaneers (1-0; No. 2): They beat an overmatched Dallas team, but something is missing.

4. Rams (0-1; No. 1): They may not see another team this year as good as the one that dismantled them in Week 1.

5. Eagles (1-0; No. 9): The three-point margin masks their strength.

6. Ravens (1-0; #12): Yes, it was the Jets. But they seem ready to fight.

7. Bengals (0-1; No. 6): They walked on a rake to start the season, and still almost won.

8. Packers (0-1; No. 5): At least it wasn’t 38-3.

9. 49ers (0-1; No. 7): It’s hard to tell how good (or not) they are based on a game played in a swamp.

10. Titans (0-1; No. 8): Last year they were blown at home in Week 1 and recovered to claim the No. 1 seed.

11. Chargers (1-0; n°15): Good start. Consistency and health will be key.

12. Dolphins (1-0; No. 18): The Bills must be much more concerned about the Dolphins than the Patriots.

13. Steelers (1-0; No. 16): They have a chance to take a 4-0 record from Buffalo in Week 5.

14. Colts (0-0-1; No. 11): They snapped an eight-game losing streak in Week 1. They’re probably not partying.

15. Raiders (0-1; No. 14): They need to regroup quickly because things don’t get much easier until their sixth week break.

16. Browns (1-0; No. 21): The Browns of past regimes wouldn’t have recovered from that blown lead.

17. Cowboys (0-1; No. 10): When you have two quarterbacks, you have none. When you have a quarterback who gets injured, you don’t either.

18. Vikings (1-0; No. 22): Things could get very interesting in the NFC North this year.

19. Saints (1-0; No 20): Against better teams, they will have to play more than one quarter per game.

20. Patriots (0-1; No. 17): The “yes, but Bill Belichick is the coach” routine may not work for very long.

21. Cardinals (0-1; No. 13): When the coach complains about performance in training after the first game that counts, it’s a very bad sign.

22. Seahawks (1-0; No. 25): Pete Carroll received a birthday present in the form of a large slice of vindication.

23. Washington (1-0; No. 24): Carson Wentz looked like the 2017 version, then the 2021 version, then the 2017 version again.

24. Broncos (0-1; No. 19): When it mattered most, Let Russ Cook became Let Russ Watch.

25. Giants (1-0; n°27): A healthy and motivated team Saquon Barkley makes up for a lot of the shortcomings on the list.

26. Panthers (0-1; No. 23): David Tepper won’t take too much.

27. Bears (1-0; No. 30): Win at Lambeau and the Bears will get a big bump.

28. Falcons (0-1; No. 26): The more things change, the bigger the Falcons take a lead in the fourth quarter.

29. Texans (0-0-1; No. 32): They haven’t had to finish many games in recent years, and it shows.

30. Lions (0-1; No. 28): No one covers the Week 1 backdoor quite like Dan Campbell’s Lions.

31. Jaguars (0-1; #29): The good news is that Doug Pederson was on the plane to Jacksonville.

32. Jets (0-1; n°31): Robert Saleh keeps the receipts. His wallet will soon be bigger than George Costanza’s.
