Week 1 Power Rankings Roundup

Due to the fantastic play of Robert Griffin III and an improbable seven-game winning streak to end the season last year, the Washington Redskins entered 2013 with heightened expectations.

This was reflected in their power ranking across several national outlets, as the team floated somewhere in the 10-12 range during preseason installments and having some predict that they were even deserving of a top three spot.

Unfortunately as expected, the Redskins fell down the charts in the power rankings this week after a tough 33-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite showing some resiliency and fighting off a 26 point deficit, the reality is there are no moral victories in power rankings. At the end of the day all that matters is whether or not you win, and on this particular week the Redskins did not.

Hopefully the Redskins can win their 15th game against the Green Bay Packers this Sunday at legendary Lambeau Field in Wisconsin.

Anyway, here is where the Redskins stand in this week’s various power rankings:

CBSSports’ Pete Prisco, who was most critical of the Redskins having them 16th to start the season, dropped them six spots:


ESPN.com dropped the Redskins down to 19th, nine spots lower than a week ago:


Pro Football Talk:


Yahoo! Sports, who made mention of the fact that the Redskins did score the final 20 points of the game:


Former Super Bowl winning head coach and current Fox Sports analyst Brian Billick:


And finally, NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison:

    RGIII looked good near the end and hopefully that will translate into more comfort in the next game. Remember, he practiced very little in training camp and didn’t play at all in the preseason. Expecting him to come out and light it up like last year was a bit unrealistic. He’ll be fine. And when he gets going good the running game will get back in sync as well and then our defense won’t be on the field so much.

    I feel very disloyal even making a comment about RG3. Just the same, I feel that he is not 100% because of the simple fact that he wears a knee brace. Many said he is100% which means that he is totally healed and back to normal. I truly feel that the brace slows him down and prevents him from being who he is ( if indeed RG3 is 100%). I don’t know what the answer is? I don’t want him to ever get injured again. All I do know is that the brace itself is the only truth I see

    The media and everyone involved should not be alarmed , however, because RG3 is such a professional that he will find a way to continue his greatness.
