2. Packers (2-1) - I still think this is the most talented team in the NFC, but their performance yesterday was a little disappointing. They dominated the Bears in terms of yards and time of possession, but were crippled by penalties and a late turnover.
3. Falcons (2-1) - Their only loss came to the Super Bowl contender Steelers, and they gritted out a tough win against the defending champs in their own building. This is a definite contender.
4. Bears (3-0) - They are the only 3-0 team left in the NFC, so they should be #1, right? Meh. I'm impressed, but I'm still not totally sold.
5. Eagles (2-1) - We shouldn't get carried away by a win over the lowly Jaguars, but this team is clearly more dangerous with Michael Vick under center.
6. Cowboys (1-2) - They finally got their first win, and it was in dominant fashion over a good Texans team. Anyone who ruled them out after their 0-2 start needs to take another look at their roster.
7. Vikings (1-2) - Adrian Peterson is back in top form, but yesterday's win over the Lions did little to instill confidence in Brett Favre.
8. Giants (1-2) - They lost a game they probably should have won, but most of the mistakes were fixable. The defense did a good job bottling up Chris Johnson, but this team will only go as far as their offensive line takes them.
9. Redskins (1-2) - Yeesh, a thrashing at the hands of the Rams will quickly squelch those warm fuzzy feelings Redskins fans had for their new regime.
10. 49ers (0-3) - In any other division, they would be almost buried. But in the terrible NFC West, the 49ers might somehow still be the favorites. The only problem is, the schedule gets tougher before it gets easier.
11. Seahawks (2-1) - Pete Carrol deserves a pat on the back for Seattle's start, and Leon Washington deserves the key to the city.
12. Cardinals (2-1) - Lucky to escape with a W after Sebastian Janikowski missed an extra point length field goal.
13. Buccaneers (2-1) - A trendy upset pick by people who don't watch football, the Buccos were no match for the Steelers.
14. Rams (2-1) - Looks like Sam Bradford was a good pick.
15. Lions (0-3) - If Jahvid Best is forced to miss any time, this will be a hard team to watch.
16. Panthers (0-3) - Attention fantasy football players: start team defenses when they are playing the Panthers.
