The Washington Redskins have cracked the top half of the league in the latest edition of ESPN's NFL Power Rankings. A 2-0 start to the season has vaulted the Redskins up four spots to No. 15 in the Week 3 edition of the rankings. Here's what the ESPN staff has to say about the Redskins.

The Redskins are the fifth of the 2-0 teams to be in the rankings. Only the Buffalo Bills, at No. 16, are lower. There are nine 1-1 teams listed ahead of the Redskins on the list. Here are the teams ranked above Washington.

  1. Green Bay Packers (2-0)
