Philadelphia is No. 1 after two weeks. The last 13 teams to rank No. 1 after Week 2 averaged 12.5 wins... but all of them were better than the Eagles. Plus: the Texans, Pats, and Giants may be 2-0, but they're surprisingly low in DVOA.
How bad was Ryan Fitzpatrick's day against Kansas City? Worse than any game David Klingler, Brandon Weeden, Donald Hollas, Ryan Leaf, or any other horrible quarterback has ever had in the past 25 years.
Denver, Philadelphia, and Minnesota roll on; Seattle and Green Bay get back on track; Washington wins a shootout with the Giants; and the Cardinals lose again on the east coast.
An upset-fueled Week 4 led to new expectations for surprising teams like Wisconsin, Tennessee, and Texas A&M, but poor performances at LSU and Notre Dame led to early-season firings.
Bryan and Andrew pick which of the NFL's eight 0-2 teams will shout Hallelujah and be Victorious. You don't need to like emo music to appreciate this column, But It's Better If You Do.

At ESPN Insider, we looked at the very real 14-game slump Aaron Rodgers has had dating back to last season. History shows for a great quarterback in his prime, this type of slump is most unusual, and it usually takes a change of health, scenery or a new head coach to snap out of it. For Rodgers, a new coach may be the only realistic option, and that just so happens to be the same change Brett Favre needed in Green Bay to get back to playing at a high level.
