Week 5 power rankings: AFC East



Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham


ESPN.com's Week 5 power rankings are out, and I don't know if I understand how they work anymore.

The New York Jets somehow climbed a spot despite losing to the New Orleans Saints, and the Buffalo Bills dropped only two spots for getting vaporized by a team that was three spots beneath them in last week's rankings.

Here is how the AFC East breaks down in the latest rankings, drawn up by ESPN senior writers John Clayton and Jeffri Chadiha, AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky and NFC West blogger Mike Sando.

No. 5 New York Jets
No. 6 New England Patriots
No. 21 Miami Dolphins
No. 23 Buffalo Bills
