Watch Colin Cowherd release his Week 2 NFL ‘Herd Hierarchy’, with Colin counting down his rankings of the top 10 teams heading into Week 3.
10. Washington Commanders (2-0): “They lead the NFL, over the Cowboys, with 10 sacks and 20 quarterback hits. We like their personnel we're just not sure about the coach and the quarterback. Sam Howell is 3-0."
9. Los Angeles Rams (1-1): “Number two offense in the league, Stafford has been sacked only once, and is one of only two quarterbacks with 300 passing yards in each of the first two games. I don't care what the preseason people said, this defense is young and fast."
8. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1): “Trevor Lawrence wasn't great in the red zone vs. the Chiefs, but he's the second-highest graded quarterback this season according to PFF. Listen, they can't beat the Chiefs, but they're going to be OK. That's a problem for virtually everybody."
7. Buffalo Bills (1-1): "Since 2020, they lead the NFL with 27 wins by 10+ points. If they get a lead on you with that pass rush, watch out. They had no giveaways vs. the Raiders and shortened the routes. Believe it or not, Josh Allen leads the NFL in completion percentage."
6. Baltimore Ravens (2-0): “They're banged up but had 25+ points in their first two games. Lamar Jackson is 7-1 for his career vs. the Bengals. It's hard to prepare for them, there really is no other Lamar Jackson."
5. Philadelphia Eagles (2-0): “Philadelphia has an identity crisis. Just run the ball with Jalen Hurts. He's a power-running quarterback, that's what you are. Number one rush defense, number two rush offense; don't be embarrassed, this is what Jalen Hurts is."
4. Kansas City Chiefs (1-1): "Mahomes has been sacked only once this season. The story has been Mahomes getting good protection, and their young defense is inexpensive and really good."
3. Dallas Cowboys (2-0): “They lead the NFL in point-differential. One of five offenses without a giveaway. Their defense has seven takeaways."
2. San Francisco 49ers (2-0): “Two wins on the road, Brock Purdy is 9-0 as a starter if you take away the playoffs. They have never lost, 12-0 in the regular season with Christian McCaffrey as a starter. This is the best roster in the NFL and doesn't have an identity crisis like Philadelphia."
1. Miami Dolphins (2-0): "Two wins both of the road. They've scored touchdowns on 11 of their 22 drives. They can play power football, they can do finesse, they do speed. It's really dependent on the health of Tua, and you cross your fingers."
