Early in the season is when I tend to make the biggest adjustments to my NFL power ratings. Through two weeks, I’ve dropped four teams seven spots from where they were preseason, and upgraded one team seven spots.

Below you’ll find my complete 1-32 NFL betting power ratings.

1. New England Patriots

Preseason rank: No. 1

Monitor offensive line inexperience/injuries — Marcus Cannon, Isaiah Wynn (Marshall Newhouse moves to LT), Korey Cunningham. Miami was not up for the challenge, but the Pats could be susceptible to strong pass rush.

2. Kansas City Chiefs

Preseason rank: No. 3

Possible decrease in defensive rating. Oakland’s offensive mistakes kept game out of reach, but the Raiders moved the ball well enough.
