UPDATE (10:49 AM)-
They’re here. The first ESPN Power Rankings of the 2019 season. Not content to follow the trends and put a hot “new” team at the top, ESPN has placed last year’s Super Bowl champs and recent recipients of a non-suspended Josh Gordon, the New England Patriots at #1.
The Steelers roll in at a respectable number 11, one spot behind the Cleveland Browns and 6th in the AFC behind New England, Kansas City, LA Chargers, Indianapolis(!) and Cleveland.
Filling out the rest of the AFC North, Baltimore is in at 17 and Cincinnati at a moribund 28.

UPDATE (10:27 AM)-
An amazing recovery by former Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Emmanuel Sanders is amazing!
• He tore his Achilles Dec 5 2018
• Avg return from Achilles rupture: 11 months
• Career ending injury for 28% of players
Just 8.5 months later later, Sanders is playing well at full speed in live game action. Just incredible!
