Sorry I had to step away from the desk for a week of vacation, but I'm back to discuss your favorite thing on ESPN.com other than Bill Simmons: Power Rankings. Most of you have universally embraced my rankings, but I fear that some of you will be disappointed this time around.

The most passionate (delusional) fan base I've come across supports the Denver Broncos. In order to ward off death threats and other praise, I try to always rank the Broncos about five spots higher than they deserve. That said, I spend a great deal of time analyzing the other teams. Before I explain my rationale, here's a look at how I voted:

1.
 Patriots
2. Cowboys
3.
 Colts
4. Giants
5.
 Jaguars
6.
 Chargers
7.
 Vikings
8.
 Browns
9.
 Steelers
10.
 Eagles
11.
 Seahawks
12.
 Packers
13.
 Redskins
14.
 Titans
15.
 Texans
16.
 Saints
17.
 Buccaneers
18.
 Cardinals
19.
 Bills
20.
 Broncos
21.
 Panthers
22.
 Ravens
23.
 Bengals
24.
 Jets
25.
 Chiefs
26.
 Bears
27.
 Lions
28.
 49ers
29.
 Rams
30.
 Falcons
31.
 Dolphins
32.
 Raiders
