2. Indianapolis (2-0; unchanged): Could it be that the Colts have actually become a defensive-oriented team?
3. Tampa Bay (2-0; 7): The Bucs keep riding in style with their Cadillac and a dominant defense.
4. Kansas City (2-0; 5): Winning in Oakland made a huge statement … and the reward is a Monday night in Denver.
5. Philadelphia (1-1; 10): Donovan McNabb is too busy throwing touchdowns to worry about his sore chest or any sore feelings he might have toward his favorite receiver.
6. Cincinnati (2-0; unranked): You can't help but respect what this team can do on both sides of the ball.
7. N.Y. Giants (2-0; 11): It hasn't been pretty, but the Giants have two wins by convincing margins.
8. Washington (2-0; unranked): Maybe Mark Brunell is the instant spark Joe Gibbs thought he would be.
9. Carolina (1-1; unranked): The Panthers showed plenty by bouncing back from a heart-breaking opener and playing strong defense without Kris Jenkins.
10. New England (1-1; 1): After being manhandled in Carolina, the Pats have the daunting task of trying to rebound in Pittsburgh.
11. Atlanta (1-1; 4): With Michael Vick hurting, the Falcons defense is capable of picking up the slack.
12. Dallas (1-1; 8): The Cowboys are still wondering how they blew that game to Washington.
