Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

Posted: October 3, 2016 in NFL

Four weeks in, yes we are already a quarter of the way from the season, and some teams have already asserted themselves as some of the best in the NFL. There are three undefeated teams left, the Broncos (4-0), Vikings, (4-0), Eagles (3-0) and all rank in the top five. The other two teams in the top five are the Packers and Eagles. The Patriots dropped from their #1 ranking last week to six after a very poor performance against the Bills. The Cardinals, who had high expectations entering the season, started 1-3 and have fallen all the way to 12. The Panthers fell out of the top five this week as well. Other noteworthy moves are the Saints moving up 7 spots (still rank in the bottom 10), Rams moved into the top 20 after a 3-1 start and the Jets moved up five spots despite a loss this week.
