The Washington Redskins are 1-0, but they are ranked as just the 22nd best team in the week 2 NFL Power Rankings at SBNation.com.

The Redskins had a very impressive showing against the Giants over the weekend, and the guys over at SB Nation who compile the weekly NFL Power Rankings seem to have taken notice. The Redskins were ranked as the 30th best team in the NFL before the season began, which is to say, second worst. But after that win over the Giants, they are now up to No. 22. Here is what they have to say about the 'Skins.

I make a crack about the Redskins starting QB Rex Grossman last week and he looks solid against the Giants. The NFC East gets a lot more interesting if the Redskins can repeat that performance.

I was satisfied just to see the Redskins up at No. 22, but then he has to go and make that comment about the NFC East getting more interesting because of Rex Grossman's play? Does he actually believe that or is he just trying to give us those outrageous expectations that are usually associated with this fanbase?
