Week one of the NFL season is already in the books, and it looks to be another great season of football. The talent level is ridiculously great in today’s NFL, and it is going to be nearly unpredictable to pick a clear Super Bowl favorite in 2012.

Anyways, here are the Goat’s Week 1 NFL Power Rankings!

32. Cleveland Browns (0-1)

Week 1: Loss vs. PHI (17-16)

The defense looked great in Cleveland, but the offense is too young, inexperienced, and is simply not ready for the biggest stage in football

31. Tennesee Titans (0-1)

Week 1: Loss vs. NE (34-13)

Jake Locker held his own in the pocket, but the Titans won’t win many games if Locker leads the team in rushing yardage

30. Miami Dolphins (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ HOU (30-10)

Ryan Tannehill’s rookie debut was rough, as Tannehill is the poster boy of numerous problems on the Dolphins

29. Indianapolis Colts (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ CHI (41-21)

Indy started hot, but this team will lean too heavily this season on rookie quarterback Andrew Luck

28. Buffalo Bills (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ NYJ (48-28)

Buffalo still needs to develop some kind of pass rush…frustrating to say after the Bills signed prized free agent Mario Williams to help fortify the defensive line

27. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ MIN (26-23, OT)

The Jaguars nearly stole it in Minneapolis, but Blaine Gabbert grew as an NFL quarterback on Sunday

26. Oakland Raiders (0-1)

Week 1: Loss vs. SD (22-14)

The Raiders have more problems than a bad long snapper, as the offense was manhandled and the defense lacked discipline

25. St. Louis Rams (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ DET (27-23)

The Rams may be 0-1, but Jeff Fisher’s new squad looked much improved from a season ago

24. Kansas City Chiefs (0-1)

Week 1: Loss vs. ATL (40-24)

Even with the return of safety Eric Berry, the Chiefs defense couldn’t stop one of the league’s best offenses

23. Seattle Seahawks (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ ARI (20-16)

Just because Russell Wilson had a great preseason doesn’t mean it will translate into the regular season

22. Carolina Panthers (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ TB (16-10)

With a sloppy start and sloppy weather, the Panthers couldn’t find any kind of groove at Raymond James Stadium

21. Cincinnati Bengals (0-1)

Week 1: Loss @ BAL (44-13)

Andy Dalton’s early season shoulder problems and the injuries in the defensive secondary weren’t any help on Monday Night

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0)

Week 1: Win vs. CAR (16-10)

Greg Schiano’s Buccaneer debut may not have been pretty, but the former Rutgers’ head coach has to be happy with his team’s discipline and patience

19. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)

Week 1: Win @ CLE (17-16)

Michael Vick won’t get away with throwing 4 INT again this season…head coach Andy Reid won’t get away with calling 56 passing plays as well

18. Arizona Cardinals (1-0)

Week 1: Win vs. SEA (20-16)

The quarterback issue won’t be resolved in 2012, but the defense looked sharp in Glendale

17. Minnesota Vikings (1-0)

Week 1: Win vs. JAX (26-23, OT)

Christian Ponder looked well improved, Adrian Peterson is back, and rookie kicker Blair Walsh earned his horns on Sunday
