In ESPN.com's final Power Rankings of the regular season, the Patriots moved up a spot to No. 4 after beating the Dolphins 28-0 to cap a 12-4 season. Ranked ahead of them are the Broncos (No. 1), Falcons (No. 2) and Niners (No. 3).

Among the Patriots' potential divisional-round opponents, the Colts moved up a spot to No. 8, the free-falling Texans dropped all the way to No. 9 and the Ravens stuck at No. 10.

If the AFC East, the next-best team was the Dolphins at No. 20. The lowly Bills (No. 23) and Jets (No. 25) were among the bottom 10 in the NFL.

Your turn: What's your take on the Patriots finishing the regular season at No. 4 in the Power Rankings. Is that about right, or did they deserve to be higher (or lower)? Vote in the poll above and sound off in the comments section.
