Brady Bandage.jpgThe Week 2 OBF NFL Power Rankings show lots of movement in the middle of the pack - but only one team fell out of the top 10. We'll update them each Saturday. Remember, these are for entertainment purposes only. Teams are listed with record and last week's ranking.

1. Patriots (1-0; 1): Will win more games than the Red Sox, Bruins (if Gary Bettman and Jeremy Jacobs get their way) or Celtics between now and the end of the year. Order your Super Bowl tickets here.

2. 49ers: (1-0; 2) Jim Harbaugh will enough trouble shaking hands with Lions coach Jim Schwartz. Can't wait for him to try to match wits with Bill Belichick in the New Orleans.

3. Ravens (1-0; 8): NFL regular-season homecoming for Baltimore QB and AFC offensive player of the week Joe Flacco (who grew up in Philly suburb of Audubon, N.J.) against Eagles. Wonder if he'll boo himself?

4. Texans (1-0; 4): Houston's J.J. Watt learned the Dolphins snap count from watching "Hardknocks." Chad Johnson learned he got cut watching "Hardknocks."

5: Broncos (1-0; 9): Scouting report: No. 18 shows potential at QB.

6. Packers (1-1; 3): Separated at Birth: Clay Matthews and Thor.

7. Cowboys (1-0; 7): Tony Romo has just one playoff win since his last snap in Seattle. Facing Pete Carroll good way to shed any jinx.

8. Steelers (0-1; 5): Ben Roethlisberger shares dating tips with Tim Tebow after post-game prayer circle.

9. Eagles (1-0; 10): Eagles are the second-most-played team on line in Madden 13 - behind the 49ers. At least among cats.

10: Lions (1-0; 14): Lions have visited San Francisco 10 times since 1981 and can count their victories on zero paws.

11. Falcons (1-0; 13): Over/under against Denver on Monday night is 49 points. Broncos should do their part.

12. Giants (0-1; 11): Hangover II. Still primed for 0-2 after trip to visit by Tampa Bay.

13. Bears (1-1; 6): At least Jay Culter can yell like Tom Brady.

14. Jets (1-0; 21): Mark Sanchez led the Jets to a 48-28 victory, hit on 70 percent of his passes for 266 yards (3 TDs) and is now dating Eva Longoria. His God must be pretty awesome, too.

15. Saints (0-1; 15): If they can't beat the Panthers, it might be time to suspend everyone else.

16. Chargers (1-0; 16): Norv Turner beat division rival Oakland. It must be September.

17. Redskins (1-0; 17): Robert Griffin III lit it up against New Orleans - he may hit triple digits against St. Louis.

18. Cardinals (1-0; 23): Looks like Kevin Kolb will "feel every ounce of everything" Vince Wilfork has eaten this week.

19. Bengals (0-1; 17): BenJarvus Green-Ellis could rush for 2,000 yards and it still won't be enough to bail out Andy Dalton.

20. Chiefs (0-1; 12): Matt Cassel and Romeo Crennel now 123 regular-season victories behind Tom Brady and Bill Belichick on all-time coach/QB tandem list. Belchick-Cassel trail by 114.

21. Bills (0-1; 18) That $59 million spent on Ryan Fitzpatrick could the worst investment since John Lackey - five years, $82.5 million.

22. Buccaneers (1-0; 25): The dullest team in Florida this side of Jacksonville.

23: Titans (0-1; 19): At his current pace, Chris Johnson is on pace to gain 2,304 inches this season.

24. Seattle (0-1; 20): RB Marshawn Lynch has been dealing with back spasms and actually wants to play. Imagine that.

25. Panthers (0-1; 22) Can we get our money back on that Super Bowl guarantee ?

26. Raiders (0-1; 26): Just when, baby?

27. Rams (0-1; 27): On the bright side, they covered against the spread for only the 2nd time in 13 years last week.

28. Dolphins (0-1; 29): Giving away tickets - bought by the team - to make sure the game is televised locally in South Florida. Viewer discretion advised.

29. Browns (0-1; 30): Brandon Weeden still holding out for his first offensive touchdown.

30. Colts (0-1; 31): Gave up 41 points to Cutler and the Bears Sunday. Forget Peyton Manning - bring back Gino Marchetti.

31. Vikings (1-0; 32): Talk about Luck, they get Indianapolis this week.

32. Jaguars (0-1; 28): Jags scored a TD with 20 seconds left before Vikings rallied to win in OT. Texans won't have that problem.
