So Mark Maske released his top 10 on Tuesday. As we present them to you in photo-gallery form, there’d be a surprise at No. 10 if I hadn’t spoiled it with the headline.
The sight of the Seahawks at No. 2, where they were last week, made it seem like Mark avoided overreacting to Week 1. Eight of the 10 teams are the same, with the Colts and Cowboys taking the places of the Bengals and Ravens. The Saints moved up from No. 10 to No. 6, and the Texans to No. 5 from No. 8.
After Sunday and Monday nights, do the Cowboys seem like a peculiar choice for No. 10? Who would you put as your top 10? Here’s the gallery:
Redskins vs. Packers
This is a tough matchup coming off a season-opening loss. Both teams are probably saying that, but by conventional wisdom, Green Bay has the edge because it lost to last year’s NFC champ and plays Sunday at home.
Here’s the Post Sports Live gang previewing the game:

From around the Web:
● This is the most awesome NFL visual you’ll see this week. Grantland graphs where every pass thrown in the NFL last year went, and draws some conclusions.
● Pro Football Focus went back and watched Redskins vs. Eagles and pulled out some interesting insights, including that Washington missed more tackles (14) than any team in the NFL in Week 1.
● If you’re into advanced football analytics, check out where the Redskins ranked in Football Outsiders’ Week 1 DVOA, and DAVE. The ratings compare Washington’s performance to league average, and then adjust it to take preseason rating into account, presumably so the one-week sample size doesn’t too strongly influence the numbers.
● The Redskins practice at 1 p.m on Wednesday. Robert Griffin III, London Fletcher and Mike Shanahan speak with reporters afterward.
● Blog posts on uncharacteristic Alfred Morris and the possibility of going 0-2.
