1. New England Patriots– Brady has been on a tear and I remember saying that whenever he does play, defenses better watch out because he will carve them up and so far he’s thrown seven touchdown passes and not one interception. Gronk is being Gronk, Edelman has shown he’s more than capable of being that number one receiver and the defense is still a work in progress but they can get a takeaway when necessary. I’ve also been impressed with their offensive line. They’ve started three rookies who are getting the job done up front.
2. Green Bay Packers– No Jordy, no problem. The Packers offense is still clicking on all cylinders and James Jones has been a very reliable target for Aaron Rodgers. The MVP is off to a hot start once again completing 80 percent of his passes. When he’s healthy, he’s a very lethal weapon on the field. Last Sunday night was a huge win for the Packers and when the playoffs come around, home-field will be in their grasp. With just about everyone healthy, this is a strong team not just in the NFC but throughout the league.
3. Arizona Cardinals– Through the first two weeks of the season, Carson Palmer is showing us all why he’s such a key piece to this Cardinals offense. Being healthy does make all the difference in the world and the Cardinals are playing very well through the first two weeks of the year. It’s early but right now this could be the best team in the NFC west. Fitz looked like the Fitz of old last Sunday in Chicago. If Palmer stays healthy, the sky is the limit for Bruce Arians’ teams.
4. Dallas Cowboys– First Dez goes down and a week later, Romo goes down. Despite that, the Cowboys are 2-0 with two hard-fought victories over divisional rivals. Sean Lee makes this defense much better and sometimes it’ll just take one guy to spark an entire unit. The world is anxious to see how this offense will now play without its two most important pieces. Weeden will be that starter and Matt Cassel is there to be a back up. It will take a collective effort to replace those two key pieces on offense. A tough loss but when some players go down, others have to step it up.
5. Denver Broncos– Week one, it was Denver’s defense coming to the rescue. Last week in Kansas City, it was their offense finally getting themselves into a rhythm. The offensive line is still gelling and Peyton looked very effective in the shotgun and hurry up offense last Thursday night. This is the best I’ve seen Denver’s defense look since Peyton’s first season with them. If they can play consistently and some key guys can stay healthy, the entire team will benefit from that.
