Week 2 NFL Power Rankings: Ravens Will Be Ahead Of Steelers

Most outlets won't have 2011 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings out until after all the games are over Monday night, but James Walker at ESPN has a look at where he expects the AFC North teams will go. The Steelers were at No. 3 and the Ravens at No. 8, and Walker expects the Ravens to leapfrog the Steelers, which of course is fair, given how badly things went on Sunday.

The Steelers were one of the NFL's most surprising teams in Week 1 -- and not in a good way. Pittsburgh was dominated by Baltimore and looked like a shell of last year's team. Most likely Sunday's showing was just a horrible outing. But you wonder if Pittsburgh is getting old fast. I expect the Steelers to get back on track. But they could have one of the biggest drops this week.

Walker notes that he thought the Ravens were the best team in the AFC North even before Sunday's thrashing, and again, it's hard to argue.
