NFL 2012 Week 1 Power Rankings and Predictions

With the final pre-season games wrapping up, its time to look ahead to Week 1! I don't know about you, but I'm excited about the NFL finally returning! Let's kick off with some Power Rankings & Predictions!

Biggest Winner: Chicago Bears (+14)
Biggest Loser: Miami Dolphins (-11)

1. Green Bay Packers (15-1, +0): The Packers offense doesn't look to decline in 2012. That alone should assure them as one of the best teams in the league. If DC Dom Capers can figure out how to fix their defensive woes, this will be one scary football team. Green Bay is, once again, a strong contender for the Super Bowl. We'll see if they can pull it all together, though. Offensively, they have Aaron Rodgers and a stacked receiving corp. Free agent acquisition Cedric Benson should help their woeful running game get better from 2011, too.

2. New England Patriots (13-3, +1): As much as I don't want to admit it, the Patriots are in an excellent position to re-claim their AFC Champion title. Josh McDaniels is back in New England. Whatever you thought about him in Denver and St. Louis isn't relevant, the man makes Tom Brady better. McDaniels was also able to convince Brandon Lloyd to join him in New England - which should provide Brady with a vertical weapon he hasn't had since Randy Moss left. Defensively, the Patriots were infused with young talent in last year's draft. Dont'a Hightower and Chandler Jones are talented defensive players who should be able to help patch their weaknesses from last year. The Patriots also have an insanely easy schedule, again.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4, +3): I really like the Steelers going into this season. Despite the fact Mike Wallace missed training camp due to a holdout, the Steelers have several developing wide receivers on their depth chart that will break out this season, including Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. They may have had the steal of the draft getting the best player available at a position of need in 1st round guard David DeCastro. The only other question offensively is how long will it take Rashard Mendenhall to get healthy? Isaac Redman is a fine back but he doesn't  have the raw talent Mendenhall has. Defensively, its the Steelers. Their defense isn't going to be an issue.

4. New York Giants (9-7, +5): Justin Tuck would probably call me a "hater" for putting the defending Champions so low. However, being 4th best talent-wise isn't really a knock. Fact of the matter is, the Giants won when they had to last season. But their 9-7 record showed that they had significant issues, namely with their running game and defense. Getting some key defensive players back from injury will help but aside from their pass rush which is very good with three pass-rushing Defensive ends to choose from, there are still question marks at every other spot on the defense. Offensively, they haven't addressed their issues on the offensive line with big question marks going to start. This won't bode well for a running game that was pretty pitiful last year. Still, Eli Manning is clutch and I expect a strong season from him. He will be enough to push the Giants to an NFC East title, and they will compete strongly in the playoffs for a chance at another Super Bowl.

5. Atlanta Falcons (10-6, +2): The Falcons are a talented team that has always been in the running since Mike Smith came to town. The big question has been, when will they take the next step? A lot of it depends on Matt Ryan. Ryan has been a good NFL starter but never has shown the intangibles Quarterbacks need to take their team to the next level. He will get plenty of help this season, Roddy White and Julio Jones look to be perhaps the best WR duo in the NFL this season. Defensively, they lost Curtis Lofton but have Akeem Dent who looks poised to step up and take that spot at MLB. They have a big oppurtunity with the Saints' off-season woes. I fully expect them to take the NFC South this year.

6. Baltimore Ravens (12-4, -2): It's hard to say how the Ravens will respond to their defensive question marks. Losing their defensive coordinator to the Colts head coaching job then their best pass rusher to injury will surely hurt the unit in 2012. They still have defensive talent but I think they will take a step back from where they were a year ago. Offensively, Joe Flacco needs to step up this year. He's been largely mediocre his NFL career and this off-season didn't give him any exciting new weapons or help. It's sink or swim, Joe Flacco. Ray Rice should have a very productive season. With Ricky Williams gone and a new contract, Rice should have a very productive year. But the Ravens need a passing attack to compliment him.

7. Houston Texans (10-6, +3): I'm probably not as high on the Texans as some others are, but at this point, you'd have to say they are the strong favorites to win the AFC South again. With the rest of their rivals having major question marks, it is the Texans position to lose. They have a franchise Quarterback, an all-star Runningback, plenty of receiving weapons, and a young hungry defense. They have just about everything you need to compete for a Super Bowl. Whether they can bring it all together and get their second playoff birth in team history is the question.

8. San Francisco 49ers (13-3, -2): The 49ers shocked the NFL last season, going 13-3 under new head coach Jim Harbaugh. Their most interesting off-season acquisitions have been getting receiving weapons for Alex Smith. They brought in veterans Randy Moss and Mario Manningham along with drafting A.J. Jenkins in the first round of the draft. Defensively, not much as changed except Aldon Smith is looking to be involved in the offense more which will make their pass-rush even better. The thing about the Niners is that a lot went right for them last season. I don't think they'll reach 13-3 again, but they'll be a solid team.

9. Chicago Bears (8-8, +14): If there is one team that is underrated going into the 2012 NFL season, its the Bears. Before Matt Forte and Jay Cutler went down to injury, the Bears seemed like a strong bet for the post-season. Now that they are healthy and the Bears traded for Brandon Marshall (who was at one point, Cutler's favorite target in Denver), the Bears offense should be significantly improved. Defensively, they are still strong and only got better in the off-season.

10. Philadelphia Eagles (8-8, +2): Philadelphia struggled early last season but finished off the season looking very strong. I'm concerned by Michael Vick's thumb injury he sustained in the 1st pre-season game but I think he'll be back to full strength by Week 1. The Eagles have too many weapons to count offensively. Juan Castillo was retained as Defensive Coordinator which is the major problem with this team. Still, the defense is also infused with talent. Jason Babin, Trent Cole, and Nnamdi Asomugha are all elites at their position. This defense could make as many plays as their offense does. With the Eagles finally able to rally to a cause due to Andy Reid's son's unfortunate death, this could be their year. They'll challenge the Giants strongly for the NFC East title.

11. Detroit Lions (10-6, -3): The Lions are like a poor man's Packers. Their defense may have a poor secondary, but their pass rush more than makes up for that. Offensively, Matthew Stafford looked amazing in his first full-season as a starter, throwing for 41 touchdowns and over 5000 yards (must be nice to be able to throw to Calvin Johnson). The only knock on him is that he turns the ball over too much for comfort. If he can get his turnovers down from 2011, the Lions could take a big step forward. I expect them to compete strongly for a tough NFC wildcard spot.

12. New Orleans Saints (13-3, -10): "Bountygate" has severely hurt this team, whether you agree with the punishments or not. Several defensive players will be out for a significant part of the season. In addition, the team's heart and soul, Sean Payton, won't be with the team this year. They still have Drew Brees which will lead them to win games but with a strong NFC this year they could be on the outside looking in.

13. Dallas Cowboys (8-8, +0): Tony Romo really gets too much hate than he deserves. He had a really good season last year. Going into 2012, the largest problem with the Cowboys is their offensive line. They were inconsistent last year and showed major struggles in training camp and pre-season this year (after being shuffled around by owner and GM Jerry Jones). Defensively, they added a lot of starters in the off-season. They took Morris Claiborne in the 1st round of the draft and picked up Brandon Carr and Dan Connor as free agents. We'll see if this is the defensive talent that Rob Ryan needs to take this unit to the next level.

14. San Diego Chargers (8-8, +0): I really struggled with who I should put here, but eventually I decided on the Chargers. Its a pick I seem to make every year just to regret but... the Chargers are still the most talented team in the AFC West. The injury to Ryan Mathews will hurt their running game a lot early in the season but Philip Rivers is still an elite Quarterback and the defense of the Chargers isn't bad. They have to be even more careful this season however since the Raiders, Chiefs, and Broncos are all looking to be better.

15. Denver Broncos (8-8, +1): Obviously, their success will depend on Peyton Manning. The former-Hall of Famer replaces Tim Tebow after a year out of football. If he can just be 75% of his former self, he should improve the Broncos' passing attack greatly. Their wide receiver corps is underrated. Demaryius Thomas showed why he was worth a high pick last year and Eric Decker seems to have already formed a bond with Manning. Defensively, John Fox's defense should continue to produce. I think "VonDoom" will be even better in 2012.

16. Buffalo Bills (6-10, +9): The Bills had a nice start in 2011 but their lack of depth hurt their chances. I'm actually a fan of the Bills' off-season moves. Bringing in new pass rushers in Mario Williams and Mark Anderson will instantly help their defense. Stephen Gilmore was a slight reach, but he'll improve the Bills' secondary regardless. Offensively, Ryan Fitzpatrick is a good Quarterback when healthy (which he wasn't when he started playing poorly last season). While Fred Jackson is getting old and coming off an injury, C.J. Spiller looked ready to step up last season and I think he'll be more involved in the offense this year, which will give the Bills a legitimate backfield threat.

17. Seattle Seahawks (7-9, +1): This team is really off the radar, but could surprise a lot of people this year. Obviously rookie QB Russell Wilson, who won the job over Free agent signing Matt Flynn, is the wildcard. But Seattle has a very solid defense and good running game with Marshawn Lynch. If there's a team that will challenge the 49ers for the NFC West, I have to believe it will be the Seahawks.

18. Carolina Panthers (6-10, +3): Part of me believes Cam Newton will regress slightly in his sophomore year (classic sophomore slump) but he should still put up good numbers. Carolina's young defense looks to have improved in the off-season so the Panthers are looking forward to a pretty good season in 2012. They could easily make a playoff push if the cards fall right.

19. Kansas City Chiefs (7-9, +5): Looking at this team on paper, it's bursting with talent except at one position... the most important one. Matt Cassel is a game-manager at best. With the talent the Chiefs have on both sides of the ball, it might be enough however. If Jamaal Charles can return to his 2010 form and the defense can continue to improve under Romeo Crennel, the Chiefs will be in good shape. So long as Cassel doesn't completely suck.

20. Cincinnati Bengals (9-7, -9): I know pre-season matters very little, but Andy Dalton has looked horrible. It appears his largest weaknesses (namely his arm strength) is starting to get exposed, and he wasn't nearly as accurate as he was at the beginning of last season. He regressed as the year went on last season, too, so its not like it's a new thing. I don't think the Bengals will be a playoff team this year.

21. New York Jets (8-8, -2): ESPN has reported enough about the Tim Tebow situation already, hasn't it? I think my hatred for Tim Tebow is well-documented at this point and he is proving to be more of a distraction than an asset. Mark Sanchez is not a franchise Quarterback. Neither is Tim Tebow. The Jets lose no matter who is under center. Either way, the Jets are not a good team. Under the right conditions, their defense could push them into playoff contention but their Quarterback situation will probably keep them out of it.

22. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11, +5): The Jaguars are very underrated going into 2012. The obvious reason for this is their second-year signal caller, Blaine Gabbert, who had a less-than-stellar rookie season. He remains the X-factor for the Jaguars. If he can develop to at least the mediocre level this season, the Jaguars are a sleeper team for the playoffs. Their defense is certainly good enough and even with the Maurice Jones-Drew holdout, Rashad Jennings has shown he can pick up the slack at tailback.

23. Washington Redskins (5-11, +3): I like what I've seen from Robert Griffin III so far, and he makes the Redskins a better team. The Redskins have a lot to prove but it will be tough given their division. They could have a solid year but the main thing Redskins fans want to see is development of Griffin. If Griffin can get continually better as the season goes on, the Redskins will mark this season off as a success. I'm excited to see what he can do... it appears he already has good chemistry with the #1 wideout, Pierre Garcon.

24. Tennessee Titans (9-7, -9): Honestly, the decision to start Jake Locker was a good one. The Titans need to give this kid a chance... and worst-case scenario, know if he isn't the future at the Quarterback position. Locker's play in pre-season suggests his accuracy is still a major issue which is why I am hesitant to rank the Titans higher. On the other hand, it seems Chris Johnson may have gotten his mojo back, which will help the young Quarterback. Defensively, the Titans are below-average. They lack talent up front, which is the largest reason I don't think they will strongly compete for the playoffs this year.

25. Oakland Raiders (8-8, -8): Lacking early draft picks really hurt the Raiders this off-season but they are headed in the right direction. Carson Palmer has looked putrid in the pre-season, but I think he'll turn it around somewhat in the regular season. The thing about Palmer is he has always been a big-play guy. He'll make some huge throws for your team but also have costly turnovers. I expect this team to be sub-.500 this year, but they won't be pushovers.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-12, +4): The Bucs made some major splashes in Free Agency, a rarity for the club... we'll see how it turns out for them. Rookie RB Doug Martin and bruiser LeGarrette Blount should be a good one-two punch in the running game. The big problem with their offense is Josh Freeman, who appears to be struggling building synergy with big Free agent acquisition Vincent Jackson. Defensively, the Buccaneers look to be a bit better at Linebacker (easily their biggest problem in 2011). Rookie OLB Lavonte David appears to be a stud. The Buccaneers probably won't be a major contender this season under a rookie Head Coach.

27. Indianapolis Colts (2-14, +4): It's almost unfair for the Colts to pick first in the draft with the best Quarterback prospect since their last one, Peyton Manning. Andrew Luck is a special kid who should have a lot of success in the NFL. He's already building chemistry with star WR Reggie Wayne. Chuck Pagano's decision to switch the defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4 may be a positive one in the long run, but in the short-term probably will make the unit worse. I'm curious to see how Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney will adjust from DE to OLB at their age.

28. Minnesota Vikings (3-13, +0): The Vikings really shouldn't be rushing Adrian Peterson back. If I were in charge, I'd make sure he was 100% healthy with no chance of additional injury before sending him back in. The season isn't going to be special, anyway. The Vikings are in a division in which all three rivals are playoff contenders. Their defense still lacks talent and their passing game should progress now that Christian Ponder has some experience under his belt but will still be limited.

29. St. Louis Rams (2-14, +3): The Rams should improve under new head coach Jeff Fisher, but they are still lacking in talent all over the field. They need major growth from QB Sam Bradford to have any sort of chance this season. Their real talent is on defense; I'm looking forward to seeing how the DE duo of Chris Long and Robert Quinn progress this year. Cortland Finnegan was a good free agent acquisition, too.

30. Arizona Cardinals (8-8, -8): The only positive thing on the Cardinals offense right now is Ryan Williams, who is looking really good after being injured his entire rookie season. The Cardinals have by far the worst offensive line in the league which will hurt SkeleKolb (doesn't really matter which Quarterback starts, they are both bad). Larry Fitzgerald is still there but he won't have time to run routes until his Quarterback is sacked or is forced to throw it away. Defensively the Cardinals should be solid but I have a hard time seeing this team score points unless they make some major improvement on the offensive line.

31. Miami Dolphins (6-10, -11): I'm a Dolphins fan who believes in Joe Philbin and Ryan Tannehill, but the Dolphins will be among the worst teams in the league this season. I'm not sure if starting Tannehill is the right decision. The right side of the offensive line is heavily suspect and his top targets will be Brian Hartline (if he comes back from injury), Legedu Naanee (Panthers fans called him "Nothing good ever happens when throwing to Naanae"), Davone Bess (the only one who can catch in the group), Anthony Fasano, and Reggie Bush (another solid target). Defensively, the Dolphins have looked extremely soft against the run and lack a pass-rusher opposite of Cameron Wake. I would say at least the Dolphins have good Cornerback depth but then we traded our most talented defensive back to Indianapolis, so scratch that.

32. Cleveland Browns (4-12, -3): I strongly believe this is the end of the road for the Holmgren era, and he probably knows it. The Weeden experiment was a desperation move and is unlikely to pan out. Pat Shurmur is a puppet head coach and wasn't even a strong hire at the time. The only small bright spot on this team is Trent Richardson, who will probably go down to injury due to the Browns running him into the ground this season. To make matters worse, their defense has very little talent. At this point, the Browns are the favorites to land Matt Barkley.

Predictions for Week 1

TKN's Overall 2011 accuracy: 175-91 (65.79%)

That darn Billy beat me last season... but I will have my revenge!

Romo will be running for his life at NY.
Dallas Cowboys (0-0) @ New York Giants (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: The season should start off with a good one here. In the over 10 year history of the Thursday Night season kickoff game, the Super Bowl champs are undefeated. Could the Giants be the first to lose? Possibly, but I'm not going to bet against it. The Giants are the better team and should make mincemeat out of the Cowboys' suspect offensive line. Romo should make some big plays to keep the Cowboys in it but the Giants should win.
Dallas 23, New York G 27

Dallas 32, New York G 38

Dallas 23, New York G 26

Indianapolis Colts (0-0) @ Chicago Bears (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: Andrew Luck didn't get any help from the NFL schedule makers when it comes to his first NFL start. The Bears defense is very good and the Colts offensive line should have trouble stopping their pass rushers. It will be interesting to see how Luck fares. On the other end of the ball, Jay Cutler should make some big plays with his new toys that should lead to a Bears win.
Indianapolis 17, Chicago 24

Indianapolis 14, Chicago 31

American  Football Simulator:
Indianapolis 18, Chicago 26

Atlanta Falcons (0-0) @ Kansas City Chiefs (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: This will be a surprisingly good game, but one I think the Falcons will ultimately win. Both teams have good defenses and running games. The biggest difference is that Matt Ryan is a much superior Quarterback to Matt Cassel.
Atlanta 23, Kansas City 20

Atlanta 31, Kansas City 24

American Football Simulator:
Atlanta 25, Kansas City 24

Philadelphia Eagles (0-0) @ Cleveland Browns (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: Andy Reid rarely loses season openers. While the Eagles may be without Michael Vick, the good news is that it couldn't have happened at a more convenient time. The Browns don't have the talent to roll with the Eagles on either side of the ball, this shouldn't be close.
Philadelphia 30, Cleveland 16

Philadelphia 44, Cleveland 13

American Football Simulator:
Philadelphia 26, Cleveland 22

How successful can Griffin be in his first start?
Washington Redskins (0-0) @ New Orleans Saints (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: This should be an exciting game to watch. It will be interesting to see how rookie QB Robert Griffin III fairs in his first real NFL game, and it will be interesting to see how losing HC Sean Payton (and interim coach Joe Vitt) will affect the Saints. Ultimately, the Saints win it though.
Washington 21, New Orleans 27

Washington 20, New Orleans 45

American Football Simulator:
Washington 22, New Orleans 27

St. Louis Rams (0-0) @ Detroit Lions (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: Should be an easy first game for Matthew Stafford and the Lions. The Rams, even under new management, isn't a very competitive team. The battle of former-first Round pick QBs should go to Stafford.
St. Louis 17, Detroit 28

St. Louis 10, Detroit 27

American Football Simulator:
St. Louis 22, Detroit 25

New England Patriots (0-0) @ Tennessee Titans (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: Let's see... Tom Brady or Jake Locker. Oh, and Kenny Britt will be out of this game with a suspension. Yeah, I'm going to go with the Patriots.
New England 30, Tennessee 17

New England 38, Tennessee 27

American Football Simulator:
New England 27, Tennessee 24

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0) @ Minnesota Vikings (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: It appears both of these teams may be without their All-Pro running back for this game. Jones-Drew is still holding out (and Mike Murlarkey has said Rashard Jennings will start regardless if Jones-Drew reports) and Adrian Peterson is still recovering from his injury last season. Blaine Gabbert gets an easy first test for 2012 in the Vikings defense. I think the Jaguars win a close, defensive battle.
Jacksonville 19, Minnesota 17

Jacksonville 13, Minnesota 10

American Football Simulator:
Jacksonville 24, Minnesota 23

Talk about a lose-lose situation...
Buffalo Bills (0-0) @ New York Jets (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: The Bills are probably the better team this season, but the Jets playing at home gives them an advantage. I'm interested to see how the Bills new pass rushers, Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, work out for this game. I think if they can get to Sanchez (or Tebow) they should force some bad throws into the Bills young and talented secondary. Ryan Fitzpatrick should be better now that he isn't playing with injury but its never easy throwing to Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie. I'll take the Bills.
Buffalo 23, New York J 20

Buffalo 20, New York J 7

American Football Simulator:
Buffalo 22, New York J 23

Miami Dolphins (0-0) @ Houston Texans (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: Welcome to the NFL, Ryan Tannehill. Your first assignment will be one of the best young defenses in the league. And oh yeah, you'll  need to score at least 30 to even have a chance because your defense is going to get burned by both Matt Schaub and Arian Foster. This game won't be close.
Miami 13, Houston 31

Miami 9, Houston 30

American Football Simulator:
Miami 20, Houston 28

Seattle Seahawks (0-0) @ Arizona Cardinals (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: The Cardinals offensive line has issues, which will make it easy for the Seahawks defense to contain the pass and the run. The Seahawks are starting a question mark in Russell Wilson at Quarterback, but his athleticism alone should allow him to make some plays against the Cardinals.
Seattle 20, Arizona 12

Seattle 29, Arizona 22

Seattle 24, Arizona 23

San Francisco 49ers (0-0) @ Green Bay Packers (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: This is a great matchup that I'm shocked isn't prime time. A playoff rematch from last season, this game pits arguably the best defense against arguably the best offense. I'm going to pick the Packers because I feel the 49ers are slightly overrated going into this season and Aaron Rodgers should have enough weapons to score points.
San Francisco 24, Green Bay 28

San Francisco 21, Green Bay 26

American Football Simulator:
San Francisco 23, Green Bay 24

Carolina Panthers (0-0) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: I'm going to go with Cam Newton and the Panthers, but honestly, I could see myself being wrong here... it depends how the Bucs' new free agent acquisitions work out. I think one of these teams will compete for the playoffs this year, I guess this game will preview which one that will be.
Carolina 28, Tampa Bay 23

Carolina 28, Tampa Bay 23

Carolina 24, Tampa Bay 26

How will Peyton fare coming back after a full season on the sideline?
Pittsburgh Steelers (0-0) @ Denver Broncos (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: Peyton Manning must've kicked a schedule maker's dog. His first game back after a year out of football he faces the Pittsburgh Steelers. And on a national stage, no less. Peyton Manning will struggle I feel in this game, the Steelers defense will make plays and limit the run. I think Ben Roethlisberger plays just well enough to give him the victory.
Pittsburgh 26, Denver 23

Pittsburgh 28, Denver 20

American Football Simulator:
Pittsburgh 24, Denver 18

Cincinnati Bengals (0-0) @ Baltimore Ravens (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: For our first Monday Night Football matchup this year, we get a battle between two division rivals who were both playoff teams a season ago. The Ravens are vastly more talented, however. I think Dalton will struggle even without Terrell Suggs in the lineup. Ray Rice should have a decent game despite the Bengals run defense being pretty good.
Cincinnati 20, Baltimore 26

Cincinnati 16, Baltimore 19

American Football Simulator:
Cincinnati 19, Baltimore 25

San Diego Chargers (0-0) @ Oakland Raiders (0-0)
TheKillerNacho: The Chargers may be without star Runningback Ryan Mathews, which greatly hurts their offensive explosiveness. The Raiders will have their star Runningback so I think I'll actually go with the Raiders here. The Chargers usually struggle early, anyway.

Question of the Week

Due to posting this question late, I'll keep it up for two weeks. This year, a league-record five rookies will be starting at Quarterback. This looks like it could be the best draft class since the 2004 class that gave us Eli Manning, Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, and Matt Schaub. Of course, one or more will probably flop ala JP Losman (who was also selected in the 1st round in 2004), but for the most part, I expect at least 3 of these guys to become franchise Quarterbacks for their team for years to come.

The question is... which ones? Instead of asking which rookie QB will have the best career, I'll ask "Which QB(s) will eventually become at least a franchise QB in the NFL?" between Andrew Luck (IND), Robert Griffin III (WAS), Ryan Tannehill (MIA), Brandon Weeden (CLE), and Russell Wilson (SEA). Remember, you can select multiple answers - select all you think will succeed in the NFL!
