The top 10 teams from last week's Power Points all had their overall ratings lowered. The former No. 1 Colts were on their bye week but saw their most recent two opponents, the previously undefeated Panthers and the defending Super Bowl champion Bucs, lose by healthy margins. It was enough to drop their rating over four points, moving them down to fourth place overall. The Vikings needed an end-of-half trick play by Randy Moss to beat the quarterback-less Broncos in the Metrodome. Their mediocre performance dropped their rating almost two points, but their performance wasn't as poor as the other top teams in the league, and they actually moved into the top spot.
