NFL Power Rankings: Week 5

The Texans, Falcons and Cardinals hold steady at the top, while the Dolphins and Browns are still stuck in the basement in this week's NFL Power Rankings.

1. Houston Texans (4-0) LW: 1
The Texans dominated another game, defeating the Titans, and remaining at the top of the heap.

2. Atlanta Falcons (4-0) LW: 2
It was a scare for the Falcons, but a 99-yard drive won the game for the birds.

3. Arizona Cardinals (4-0) LW: 3
The Cardinals barely got by the Dolphins but remaining undefeated allows them to stay at number three.

4. San Francisco 49ers (3-1) LW: 5
The 49ers grounded the Jets (watch out, New York Post!) and slide back up one position.

5. Baltimore Ravens (3-1) LW: 6
A Thursday night win against the Browns moves the Ravens up one spot.

6. Green Bay Packers (2-2) LW: 7
The Packers almost got jobbed by the real referees this time, but managed a shootout victory against the Saints.

7. Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) LW: 8
The Eagles scratched out a win Sunday night against the Giants. Michael Vick was not the turnover prone QB we saw for the first three weeks, which is always good news for the Iggles.

8. New England Patriots (2-2) LW: 9
It looked like the Patriots were about to fall to 1-3 against the Bills, until Tom Brady and the Pats went into overdrive and demolished Buffalo in the second half.

9. New York Giants (2-2) LW: 4
A tough Sunday night loss to the Eagles drops the G-Men five spots.

10. San Diego Chargers (3-1) LW: 11
In a rarity, the Chargers are starting out on fire instead of climbing out of a hole.

11. Chicago Bears (3-1) LW: 12
The Bears took it to the Cowboys Monday night, capitalizing on Tony Romo's plethora of turnovers.



12. Cincinnati Bengals (3-1) LW: 14

13. Denver Broncos (2-2) LW: 16

14. Minnesota Vikings (3-1) LW: 19

15. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2) LW: 10
