An average of six major football outlets have the Redskins ranked at 25 out of 32 teams in the National Football League.
These rankings are subject to change from week-to-week, but how does a perennial top-10 pick before the season and favorite to repeat as NFC East champions fall to just seven spots from the bottom after two games?
You could start with Washington's 0-2 record, but the power ranking factor in more than just records, with offensive and defensive performances also weighing in.
So do the Redskins belong in the bottom seven?
The 13 teams found interchangeably at the bottom of just about every power rankings along with the Redskins are the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2), Cleveland Browns (0-2), Oakland Raiders (1-1), Pittsburgh Steelers (0-2), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-2), New York Jets (1-1), Minnesota Vikings (0-2), New York Giants (0-2), Carolina Panthers (0-2), Tennessee Titans (1-1), Buffalo Bills (1-1), Detroit Lions (1-1) and Arizona Cardinals (1-1).
By the numbers, Washington has the league's worst defense and an offense that hasn't done much of anything until the second half of games.
No matter how bad the Redskins have looked, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders are ranked below them and should be because those teams have ceilings that are very limited.
The Steelers, Jets and Titans should be ranked higher than Washington at this point because while they don't have the offensive potential that Washington has, their defenses will give them a chance to win every game at the end.
The Cardinals and Bills are somewhere in the middle of the pack offensively and defensively and with wins already they would get the nod over Washington. Same goes for Detroit, who's offense is actually in the top 10.
The Vikings are a similar team to the Redskins because they don't have a great defense, but they do have one of the league's best running backs.
The Redskins should be ranked higher than Minnesota however, because anybody with functional eyes would take an injured RGIII over Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder.
That leaves the Redskins somewhere in between 26 and 29 with the Buccaneers, Giants and Panthers.
There's a case to be made about why either team should be ranked above the next, but this goes to show that many of the NFL power-rankings are still hinging off of Washington's success from a year ago.
While they have dropped considerably over the past two games, the Redskins are still ranked higher than they should be.
