2010 NFL Power Rankings: Week 14
The Atlanta Falcons own the top spot in the latest ESPN.com NFL Power Rankings for the fourth straight week -- but just barely.
The New England Patriots' 45-3 romp over the New York Jets on "Monday Night Football" solidified the Pats' hold on the No. 2 spot, but they couldn't quite nudge the Falcons off their perch. New England will face another highly ranked opponent in Week 14, the No. 8 Chicago Bears. Another impressive win might push the Patriots over the top.
The Pittsburgh Steelers leaped to No. 3 in the rankings with a narrow victory over the Baltimore Ravens, who remain in the No. 4 spot. The New Orleans Saints moved into the top five after their fifth consecutive win, and the Jets fell to No. 6.
