2010 NFL Week 2 Ratings and Rankings; Green Bay #1, Houston #2, Pittsburgh #3

As is often the case in week 2, there are more surprises and a few perhaps unexpected results in the new rankings.

While New Orleans won it was a lot closer than expected and against a team that had lost to a team that lost big this week.  This allowed Green Bay to take over #1 and a surprising Houston team is up to #2.  And perhaps Pittsburgh doesn't miss Big Ben at all as they move to #3 this week.

Baltimore and New England drop after losses but stay in the top-10 but Dallas has the largest drop of the week down 11 spots to #24.

Given how much teams change from last year and how varied performances can be early in the year, the predictions were not very good going 6-10 against the spread and 8-8 picking winners vs Vegas going 9-7.
