http://www.nfl.com/news/story/8841476 Pats, Colts set early standard for poll By Vic Carucci National Editor, NFL.com (Sept. 13, 2005) -- This is how the NFL's 32 teams stack up after Week 1: IN THE HUNT 1. New England (1-0): For all that has been subtracted, Brady + Belichick still equals greatness. 2. Indianapolis (1-0): If the Colts defense is as strong as it looked vs. the Ravens, this team finally has everything necessary to go the distance. 3. Pittsburgh (1-0): Could we please dispense with the talk that Ben Roethlisberger's rookie success was some sort of fluke or mirage? 4. Atlanta (1-0): The Falcons need to do a better job of capitalizing on scoring opportunities, but they are off to a good start. 5. Kansas City (1-0): Shutting down Randy Moss and the Raiders would be an even stronger statement by the Chiefs' new and improved defense. 6. New Orleans (1-0): The Saints wasted no time showing they can handle being season-long road warriors. 7. Tampa Bay (1-0): Carnell Williams ' lightning-quick legs are something to behold. But how about that vaunted Bucs defense? 8. Dallas (1-0): Drew Bledsoe delivered an emphatic "Take that!" to the many (including yours truly) who thought he had nothing left to offer as a starter. 9. Buffalo (1-0): With an outstanding defense and Willis McGahee, the Bills simply need J.P. Losman to be as poised and efficient as he was vs. Houston and they'll go a long way. 10. Philadelphia (0-1): The Eagles defense is as dominant as ever, but the team needs to find its offensive rhythm -- and fast. 11. N.Y. Giants (1-0): Imagine how explosive the Giants offense will be when Eli Manning plays well. 12. Miami (1-0): Hard to believe the Dolphins could find their way into this category after last season and the dramatic change that followed, but dominating the Broncos was impressive.
