An eventful opening weekend of the NFL season comes to an end. The Green Bay Packers kicked off the Jordan Love era with a blowout victory over the Chicago Bears, Aaron Rodgers' season ended after only four snaps, and the Detroit Lions stunned the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead.

The ups and downs of the NFL season are back. We learned a lot from Week 1, but in some cases, there are even more questions than answers after opening weekend.

With the first round of games in the books, it's time to update the NFL power rankings for Week 2. The Packers are moving up.

NFL power rankings Week 2: Packers soaring after crushing Bears

32. New York Giants

The Giants fall all the way to the bottom of the power rankings. Losing 40-0 at home will do that. The Giants were embarrassed by the division-rival Dallas Cowboys, proving there is a lot of work to do. Where do the Giants go from here? They get a chance to bounce back against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.

31. Arizona Cardinals

Arizona fell short in its season opener but was surprisingly competitive. Perhaps the Cardinals aren't a lock for the No. 1 pick, after all.

30. Houston Texans

Second-overall pick C.J. Stroud threw for 242 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in his Texans debut. It's clear a lot of work is still required for the Texans to become competitive in the AFC South.

29. Indianapolis Colts

Rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson showed potential in his NFL debut, but the Colts' rushing attack without Jonathan Taylor is a concern. Deon Jackson averaged an awful 1.1 yards per carry.
