Here are Pro Football Weekly's power rankings after the third week of preseason games:
1. Green Bay Packers: McCarthy on third preseason win: "We came here to win games."
2. New England Patriots: Getting knocked down peg or two likely OK with Belichick.
3. Philadelphia Eagles: Get ready for the blitzes Week One, Howard Mudd.
4. Pittsburgh Steelers: Passing game stands to be even better this season.
5. Atlanta Falcons: What were they proving, having Matt Ryan throw 42 passes vs. Pitt.
6. Baltimore Ravens: Tyrod Taylor is certainly opening some eyes for good and bad reasons.
7. New York Jets: Taking bets on how many in-season practices Plaxico participates in.
8. San Diego Chargers: Outplayed by Cardinals' starters in third preseason game.
9. New Orleans Saints: Tough to have seen Stinchcomb release coming.
10. New York Giants: Hoping Prince can come back sooner than expected

13. Houston Texans: Defensive improvements are like night and day.
14. Chicago Bears: Is Cutler already at odds with Roy? Didn't seem like great match.
15. Dallas Cowboys: Tony Romo looks great, but offensive line is key to success.
16. Detroit Lions: If they stay healthy, they should do some damage.
17. Kansas City Chiefs: No sugar-coating here: offensive performance hasn't been good.
