NFL Power Rankings, Week 2
espn.com

The New Orleans Saints and the New York Jets are riding the escalator in the latest edition of the ESPN.com NFL Power Rankings.

The Jets have vaulted from a No. 23 ranking in Week 1 to No. 16, according to a poll of our experts. Rookie Mark Sanchez's crew might be able to flirt with the penthouse should it upend the seemingly vulnerable New England Patriots when the AFC East rivals meet in Week 2.

The Saints, who have moved up six places to No. 12, could make a bid for the upper echelon if they can upset the host Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Eagles are part of the upper crust that has remained unchanged in the 2009 rankings -- the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Patriots, the New York Giants and the Eagles rank Nos. 1 through 4, respectively, once again.

The biggest tumbler this week: The Carolina Panthers have fallen from No. 14 to No. 22. One notable change: The Detroit Lions (No. 31) have leapfrogged the St. Louis Rams (No. 32) to escape the rankings' lowest rung.

--------------------------------------

For what it's worth... I think the Cowboys are underrated and will leap to the top 5 after beating the N.Y. Giants this Sunday.

1. Let me edge out on the limb a little bit
The Saints beating the Eagles won't be an upset.

besides the odds are even, although it is in Philly.
