Week:

The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons are our experts' unanimous picks for the top two berths in the latest edition of ESPN's NFL Power Rankings.

The Patriots, who mauled the Buffalo Bills in Week 16, remain comfortably atop the ladder for the third consecutive week. Our experts did not downgrade the Falcons for losing a home game to the New Orleans Saints. The Falcons remain No. 2 for a third consecutive week. The Baltimore Ravens, the Saints and the Pittsburgh Steelers round out the top 5.

The powerhouse matchup for the regular season's final week will feature the No. 6 Chicago Bears, the NFC North champs and No. 2 playoff seed, visiting the No. 9 Green Bay Packers. The Packers are still fighting for a playoff berth.

The final regular-season game will be the duel for the NFC West title and resulting playoff slot between the No. 16 St. Louis Rams and No. 26 Seattle Seahawks.
