Teams ranked from 32-1 as the NFL season gets ready to take off.

So I guess they are really going to do it. After months of lockdown, American zeitgeist cornerstone cancellations, delays, restarts, re-shufflings, and conference calls, those crazy bastards are really going to play football this year. Although it’s absurd, I’m hopeful and optimistic that it will actually work out pretty well.

Before the gun goes off Thursday night between the Texans and Chiefs, here’s how I rank every NFL team ranked 32-1, with a summary off their offseason acquisitions and departures. Print it out. Pin it to your wall. We’ll be back to reevaluate after Week Five once every team has played four games.
