    Ranking. Team Name - (user) (last week)
    1. Cleveland Browns - (tkasperson) (1)
    Theres been no change to the number one spot as the Browns took a demanding win over the Bengals in week one. Cleveland is ranked #1 in defense with the fewest yards allowed and 4 interceptions. Not bad also that Johnny Football has the second highest passer rating.

    2. San Francisco 49ers - (guayofrancais5) (N/A)
    The 49ers move into the top ten with their #1 ranked rush defense. They allowed the second most yards through the air, but the Niners secondary also caught a lot of the passes bringing in 6 interceptions. Patrick Willis ending the game against the Bears with 2 of the interceptions; bringing one in for a pick-six.

    3. Denver Broncos - (cpu) (3)
    Demaryius Thomas had 9 receptions and 158 yards to keep the Broncos positioned at number three with a win over division rival, Oakland. Denver's offense sits within the top ten in yards with a balanced attack scoring 2 touchdowns each on the ground and in the air. They were able to do a good job stuffing the run, but have given up the most passing yards so far.

    4. Miami Dolphins - (cpu) (N/A)


    Ryan Tannehill has brought the Dolphins into the top ten with a passer rating that ranks 4th in the league. Free agent pickup, Danny Woodhead had 121 yards rushing. A very middle of the pack team, Miami sits 15th in defense. They are also 25th in offense. We'll see if they are able keep it up and stay in the top five next week.

    5. Detroit Lions - (CxMACx10) (N/A)

    The Lions claw their way into the top ten by leading the league in rushing touchdowns with 3. Matthew Stafford has 76% pass completion and Joique Bell had 2 scores on running it. Stafford had zero touchdowns, but its paired with zero interceptions. Megatron didn't break 100 in the opener, but he had 99 yards receiving.

    6. Indianapolis Colts - (x-JBEAST) (10)

    Defense is the name of the game in Indy. Pressure is its last name. The Colts had the most sacks in week one with 8 overall sacks while Robert Mathis had a field day by having a league leading 3 sacks. They are second in rush defense and second in takeaways with 4 interceptions and 2 fumble recoveries.

    7. Atlanta Falcons - (Broth262) (N/A)

    You can't call them a dark horse anymore. The Falcons land in the number 7 spot with a stout defense. Atlanta is fourth in total yards allowed, second in sacks, and tied for third in interceptions. They are so far a one sided team, picking up the third fewest yards in rush yards. Falcons actually scored the most points in week one in the NFC South with 14.

    8. Jacksonville Jaguars - (Finchiavelli) (N/A)
    The Jaguars sit inside the top ten with a top ten defense, being strong against both the pass and the rush. The new-look defense came up big and defeated the Patriots in a close game that looked to be lost in the first quarter. They have the 15th ranked offense and Blake Bortles had trouble staying upright as he got sacked 6 times. The Jags are one of five teams to attempt a 2 point conversion and only one of three teams to convert it.

    9. Minnesota Vikings - (TheDivineWaffle) (4)
    Possibly a team that should be much higher in the rankings, the fifth ranked offense of the Vikings is a intimidating one. Scoring the most offensive touchdowns in week one with 3 from Teddy Bridgewater and 2 from Adrian Peterson, who had 168 yards on the day and 10.5 yards per carry average to go with. Teddy also leads the league with the highest passer rating of 150.5.

    10. New Orleans Saints - (wkward83) (N/A)
    Rookie running back Ify Umondu had his first and only carry of his career that went for 12 yards. Saints sit just outside the top fifteen in total yards on offense. They had a good amount passing it, but could not get the ball moved much on the ground. Drew Brees had a rough day throwing three interceptions while still being able to get the win in a defensive battle at home. New Orleans only managed 7 points, but their defense held the Eagles to only 3 points.
