NFL Power Rankings
Thanks to their 41-34 loss to the Niners on Sunday night, the Patriots dropped out of the top spot down to fourth in the latest edition of the ESPN.com NFL Power Rankings. Predictably, the Niners jumped to No. 1.

The Broncos stayed at No. 2 after beating the Ravens and the Texans remained third after topping the Colts.
