The Giants and the Eagles are the best teams in the NFL

The Giants and the Eagles are the best teams in the NFL

NFL power rankings: Eagles nest on top with Bills, Vikings lurking after six weeks, Texans looking shaky and even the Rams get a new head coach.

NFL Power Rankings: Week 1

1. New York Giants

The Giants sit atop the NFL with an 11-2 record and a chance to give the Super Bowl to the city of New York against its arch-nemesis, Tom Brady and the Patriots. The Giants have the best record in the NFC East and boast one of the NFL’s most dangerous rushing attacks. And just because the Giants are the NFL’s No. 1 seed, don’t count them out just yet. They play host to a Bills team looking for its first victory since 2004. The Vikings and Eagles also remain in the top 10. A strong schedule awaits, and the Giants have the chance to make a statement this week.

2. Buffalo Bills

The Bills enter their new era in Buffalo having lost just two games since last year. They now have a chance for a repeat against a familiar foe in the Giants and have been doing plenty to earn it. The Eagles and Vikings will be tough in their early-season home contests as they try to prove themselves worthy of a playoff berth. The Browns are a pleasant distraction, and the Browns are an 11-point favorite against the Colts.

3. Houston Texans

The Texans have an unbalanced roster, one that has the best defense in the AFC and a quarterback that is not even playing. They still get Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and the Patriots. The Texans, however, have a chance to make up some ground in the AFC South.

4. Detroit Lions

With all the talent on each side of the ball, this could be a good team. The Lions haven’t played since Week 5, and the Giants and Eagles won’t be easy to beat.

5. Washington Redskins

The Redskins will get to test their depth at home, but the NFC East is as bad as it’s ever been.

6. Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons have talent all over the field. The only thing standing in the way of a playoff push is if the defense can hold up under the heavy fire of Matt Ryan
