The NFL season is heading into Week 1 after a great set of games over the first week and after wins by teams like the Broncos, Eagles, 49ers and Patriots, it's time for some power rankings and here is the 32 team list heading into Week 2.

Denver Broncos (1-0): It's pretty clear why the Broncos are number one this week and his name is Peyton Manning. After throwing for seven scores in Week 1 and knowing he is playing a Giants team with a weak secondary in Week 2, he should be primed for another big day, although the Giants can't play much worse than they did to open the season, meaning they may take it out on the Broncos. Eli and Peyton will be playing in Week 2 at MetLife.

San Francisco 49ers (1-0): The 49ers probably should not have won this game after what happened with the referees and the calls they made, but Colin Kaepernick looked very good throwing from the pocket and the Anquan Boldin trade now looks like one of the steals of the century. Boldin was traded for a sixth round pick and he had over 200 receiving yards on Sunday and out totaled the Ravens wideouts for the Week combined. The team has the division rival Seahawks next.

Houston Texans (1-0): The third spot is tricky, but the Texans have a very good team and after showing that they could comeback against the Chargers on Monday night, they might finally be able to really get things going. The team was down but didn't stay out of it, scoring 17 points in the fourth quarter and Matt Schaub had a great game, throwing for 346 yards and two scores, while Andre Johnson was huge as well with 12 catches for 146 yards. Arian Foster getting going will make the team even better.

Philadelphia Eagles (1-0): Things got a bit dicey at moments for the Eagles at the end against the Redskins, but Chip Kelly's offense was an amazing thing to watch and Michael Vick looked very good in it. The Eagles could make some noise in the NFC East and if Vick can have a solid season, they should be able to rebound from 4-12 last year.

New England Patriots (1-0): The game was close and it took a last second field goal to win it, but the Patriots played without a healthy Rob Gronkowski or Danny Amendola and the Wes Welker lookalike was still able to snag 10 catches and Brady was on fire at the end when it mattered the most.

Chicago Bears (1-0): Marc Trestman got his first win as the Bears head coach and Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall picked up right where they left off last season. Trestman has an offensive mind and with Matt Forte in the backfield and an improving defense, the team should be a force in the North this season.

Green Bay Packers (0-1): Yes, the Packers lost, but it was to a very good 49ers team and despite losing, Aaron Rodgers still had 333 yards passing and three touchdowns and Jordy Nelson showed that he was not slowed by a knee injury, making seven catches for 130 yards and a touchdown.

Baltimore Ravens (0-1): They are the champs and yes they looked bad, but still.

New Orleans Saints (1-0): got a win with Sean Payton back and Brees looked good.

Atlanta Falcons (0-1): The team will rebound from losing to the Saints

Detroit Lions (1-0): Reggie Bush not being an every down back as a 24 year old was a smart career move.

Cincinnati Bengals (0-1): Fourth quarters. Fourth quarters.

Dallas Cowboys (1-0): They should have won by 40

Indianapolis Colts (1-0): another magical win for Luck

St. Louis Rams (1-0): Fisher and the kids look good.

NY Giants (0-1): six TOs. That's it

Minnesota Vikings (0-1): Adrian Peterson 78-yards on his first carry.

Tennessee Titans (1-0): some wins are not like the others

San Diego Chargers (0-1): gotta do better in the fourth

Miami Dolphins (1-0): ask Mike Wallace. Or not.

KC Chiefs (1-0): Won. But against Jacksonville.

Buffalo Bills (0-1): an unlucky loss

Oakland Raiders (0-1): Terrelle Pryor looked better than everyone thought.

NY Jets (1-0): Lucky. That's it.

Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1): injury report

TB Buccaneers (0-1): bad move at the end dude, hitting that guy.

Cleveland Browns (0-1): 10 points against the Dolphins.

Washington Redskins (0-1): Griffin and the D will play better than that.

Arizona Cardinals (0-1): more of the same

Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1): someone call Tim Tebow
