Week:

The Baltimore Ravens have collected impressive pelts this season, but they remain in the executive suite's waiting room in the latest ESPN.com NFL Power Rankings.

Entering Week 6, the Ravens are 4-1 but rank second behind their AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in the weekly poll of our experts. The Steelers, coming off a Week 5 bye, retain the No. 1 spot for a third week. The New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts round out the top five.

The Ravens already own victories over the Steelers and Jets this season. Perhaps they need a Week 6 road win over the No. 6 New England Patriots to unseat the Steelers? Pittsburgh welcomes Ben Roethlisberger back from suspension with a home date against the No. 29 Cleveland Browns.

The New Orleans Saints, who had occupied the No. 1 or No. 2 spot through the first five weeks, rank No. 9 this week. They'll visit the No. 16 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are in our top 20 for the first time since 2008.

Another interesting matchup in Week 6 will feature the No. 5 Colts visiting the No. 11 Washington Redskins, the NFC East's highest-ranked team.
