Week Two power rankings: Bills win barely moves the needle

Here's where the Bills finished in Week Two Power Rankings from around the league. View the Week One roundup here.

ESPN: 27th (last week: 26).

Yes, ESPN moved the Bills down after winning. The Rams and Jaguars started below the Bills and made big gains after Week One, and beating the Jets didn't seem to impress ESPN's rankers.

MMQB: 26th (LW: 27).

USA Today: 27th (LW: 28).

USA Today called it a "nifty start for rookie coach Sean McDermott, who unexpectedly has long-suffering Bills alone in first place."

ProFootballTalk: 20th (LW: N/A).

"It was just the Jets," Mike Florio wrote in italics, but still gave the Bills a favorable ranking.

Yahoo!: 28th (LW: 29).

The Bills moved up one spot, but Shutdown Corner's Frank Schwab wonders whether LeSean McCoy will hold up.

Bills' CB Gaines expected to play vs. Panthers

CBS: 27th (LW: 27).

"They can't play the Jets every week," Pete Prisco wrote, "but that was a solid start to their season."

Associated Press: 25th (LW: 28).

NFL.com: 25th (LW: 26).

"Don't look now, but the Buffalo Bills are in first place in the AFC East. By themselves. It sounds weird," Elliot Harrison wrote.

Sporting News: 22nd (LW: 31).

"The Bills' defense had an easy first day at the office for new coach Sean McDermott," Vinny Iyer wrote. "Now comes the hard part of playing competitive NFL teams."

Washington Post: 26th (LW: 30).

"Of course the Bills are in first place in the AFC East. Did you expect anything else?" Mark Maske wrote. "But does beating the Jets really count?"
