The Pittsburgh Steelers sit at No. 8 in the SB Nation power rankings, while their chief rivals, the Baltimore Ravens, are in the catbird seat.
Week 1 is in the books, which means it's time to take a look at some NFL Power Rankings. Not surprisingly, we see the Baltimore Ravens topping SB Nation's list after their very impressive 44-13 thrashing on the Cincinnati Bengals. Joe Flacco looked terrific and the defense was its typical dominant self.
Over at ESPN.com, the Washington Redskins made a much deserved leap from No. 24 to No. 15 after pounding the New Orleans Saints on the road. Robert Griffin III threw for more than 300 yards in the victory, making some people wonder if this Redskins team is ready to compete right away.
