The second week of the NFL season is in the books, and what an eventful two weeks it has been. Some teams thought to be Super Bowl contenders, like the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens, find themselves winless after a pair of games, searching for answers to right the ship before they sink too far. Other teams, like the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots, are right where they’re supposed to be, at 2-0 and atop their respective divisions.

Injuries hit hard in week two, especially for a pair of franchise cornerstone quarterbacks. Tony Romo joins his number-one receiver Dez Bryant on the shelf, as a broken clavicle will keep him out for a while. Drew Brees has a rotator cuff injury, and he will likely miss a chunk of time. Injuries like that can change a season for a team, even as early as it is.

Luckily for the four teams in the NFC West, they experienced no such big injuries. In a division that was hyper-competitive in 2014, and figures to be the same way, maybe even more so in 2015, teams will need to stay healthy to keep the pressure on each other.

As teams prepare for the third game of the season, take a look at how the four NFC West teams stack up in the second edition of Golden Gate Sports’ Power Rankings.
