NFL Power Rankings Week 5: Denver Broncos retains No. 1 spot


With another week of NFL action in the books, it is time to see how all of the teams stack up against each other in the big league picture. The Denver Broncos continue their stranglehold on the top spot, while the New Orleans Saints are beginning to close the gap with their impressive Monday night performance.

All of the undefeated teams occupy the top five spots in the Week 5 Power Rankings, but there is one team with a losing record.

Despite a disappointing start to the season, the Atlanta Falcons sit at No. 10 with a 1-3 record. The record is less than ideal, but when you consider the Falcons three losses came from the Saints, Dolphins and Patriots, it is hard to knock them down too far. However, if they stumble against the Jets in Week 5, they will finally drop out of the top ten.

As for the bottom slots in the rankings, two Florida teams hold the honors.

The Jacksonville Jaguars continue their poor start to the season, while things are unraveling at an alarming rate in Tampa Bay.

There is still plenty of action left in the regular season, but with one month in the books everything is starting to take form.
