Every week during the NFL season, the Augusta Chronicle's Raymond Beasock will break down the rankings of all 32 NFL teams and why they're ranked where they are.
Big test against Miami tonight
Going for first 3-0 start since 1996
3./Kansas City Chiefs/10
No. 1 rushing defense in the league
Injuries didn't slow them last week
Stephen Davis suits them perfectly
6./Tampa Bay Buccaneers/1
Are they the No. 2 defense in the league now?
Daunte Culpepper has been revitalized
Giving Ricky Williams the ball does wonders
Spurrier always finds a good quarterback
Have to find their running game
11./St. Louis Rams/13
One win made a bleak situation hopeful
12./San Francisco 49ers/12
Can't afford injuries to Jeff Garcia, Terrell Owens
Defense is +10 in turnover differential
Horrible loss on Monday night to Dallas
What has happened to Eddie George?
16./New England Patriots/17
0-2 start would've been disastrous
What happened to that promising defense?
18./Green Bay Packers/18
They beat a bad Detroit team, now they get an even worse Arizona squad
They barely beat the Bengals
20./New Orleans Saints/21
Is beating Houston considered a good win?
What has happened to Donovan McNabb?
Jamal Lewis gets the worst run defense in the league today
Secret weapon: Billy Cundiff
24./San Diego Chargers/24
Think they miss Junior Seau?
Byron Leftwich is warming up
They feel like the chicken who didn't quite make it across the road
Told you not to get too excited
You know it's bad when they lose to Miami in New York
0-2 following opening day
Almost got Marvin Lewis his first win
Played valiantly against Minnesota
One word for Dave McGinnis: HELP!
