Looks mlike they have moved up to #3. I don't know that I would put them that high, but it's nice to see.

Interesting top three: 1) Pack, 2) Saints, 3) Lions... Then a bunch of AFC teams until 9) Bucs

Just where do the Lions stand in the NFC?

Third, apparently.

I don't wanna say the Lions are to high...but I think the Bills are too low, they beat the Pats, they shouldn't be tied with them...

I'd say if the Bills and Pats played 10 times, the Pats win 9 of them. I think that was the point some other folks made when I was initially put off by the ranking system in week 1.

Sorry to our newest member and Bills fan, but that was a fluke.

Um...who cares? Point is, in this season, so far, the Bills are up on the Pats...not tied. I guess fortunatly the Bills only play the Pats one more time, not 9. Bills are for real...so are the Lions...

The thing that has people questioning the Bills is their defense. Brady doesn't make mistakes often, and granted he threw 4 interceptions, but one was off a buffalo defender's head. That's a luck play. Take that away and the Bills lose. They have a very good chance of going 4-0 against Cincinatti without Benson. If they fall behind though, can they come back against a better defense? If they win handily, I think you'll see them move up on a lot of rankings. If they struggle, they might drop even more.

Rankings are just as much about how that writer believes that team will match up against the rest of the league, as it does about wins and losses. Eagles were ranked higher last week, even after losing to the Falcons.

I took a picture of my computer screen when I saw the Lions at number 2 in the CBSSports Power rankings today. Just to prove to myself in the future that it was real!

The Ravens offense looked truly pathetic on Sunday night. Flacco is overrated.
