After debuting at No. 3, the Packers took apart the Seattle Seahawks at Lambeau Field, sacking Russell Wilson three times and making life generally hard on Seattle’s already-challenged offense in a 17-9 win.Here’s the rest of this week’s NFL Power Rankings from will go to the team that receives the majority of higher rankings from our panel.Week 2 Composite BallotBurns | Jurecki | Lapinski | Marotta | Morgan Biggest Riser: Baltimore Ravens ▲10Biggest Faller(s): Arizona Cardinals, Houston Texans ▼9 One week in and there’s already been a shakeup in the Arizona Sports NFL Power Rankings.Of course, most of that shakeup was caused by Kansas City’s dismantling of the New England Patriots in the season’s first game last Thursday night. Alex Smith turned in one of the best performances of his career with 368 yards and four touchdowns and the world got introduced to Kareem Hunt. The third-round pick out of Toledo rolled up 246 yards from scrimmage and visited the end zone three times in the Chiefs’ triumph over last week’s unanimous No. 1 team. Top Stories last_img
