Looks like we're going to pick up right where we left off following ESPN's post-draft rankings -- the New England Patriots are No. 1 and the Atlanta Falcons are No. 2 in ESPN's preseason Power Rankings. Now, to find out where teams fall in at which position after the Super Bowl LI teams go 1-2, it's best to keep reading.Here's how ESPN's power panel (a group of more than 80 writers, Bart Starr Jerseyseditors and TV personalities) voted in the preseason version of the Power Rankings. ESPN Stats & Information research contributed the following information.

Also, ESPN's NFL Insiders answer the big questions: Which team is most overrated, and which is most underrated?

Look back at our post-draft Power Rankings here and our post-free agency Power Rankings here.

The defending champions may have only gotten better this offseason with the additions of Brandin Cooks, Stephon Gilmore and Kony Ealy. The team is poised to make Tom Brady the second 40-year-old quarterback to start a playoff game, Aaron Rodgers Jerseysjoining Brett Favre in 2009.

The Falcons' offense is still as potent as it was last season, Clay Matthews Jerseysand a defense that relied heavily on rookies and finished 27th in points allowed in 2016 could see big improvements. A return to the Super Bowl isn't out of the question, Randall Cobb Jerseysand ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI) trends that way as well, giving Atlanta the sixth-best odds of making the big game.

Things are quiet in Seattle right now. Eddie Lacy JerseysMaybe a little too quiet? This could be bad news for the rest of the NFL, as a healthy "Legion of Boom" could stop a trend of three straight seasons for the Seahawks' defense allowing more points than the year before.

Research

alt

Approximately 1 in 100 babies born in the United States each year will have a congenital heart defect (CHD) which makes it the most common birth defect.  Little is known about what causes CHD's and little is known on how to prevent them.  Our families have a strong passion for supporting CHD research through money raised by Lasting Imprint.  It is through this research that we will be able to better understand CHD's and how to prevent and treat them.

Lasting Imprint is proud to work directly with The Children's Heart Foundation to ensure that all donations made to research are put towards the most promising and effective studies being done in the United States.  We invite you to learn more about this great organization!
