Week:

Did you see the Seahawks starting 2-3? How about the Cowboys? Or Eagles?

Sure, injuries have played a role, but after five weeks, there's no shortage of big-name teams struggling to meet preseason expectations. Seattle, Dallas and Philadelphia were all in our Top 10 at the start of the season. So far, none has looked like a Super Bowl contender.

Overall, 10 teams are 2-3. Do we see potential in anyone in this mediocre tier? ESPN's Power Panel still has the most faith in the Seahawks, who remain in the top 10 (No. 8). The Eagles are No. 15 (a seven-spot rise), one spot below the Chargers and three spots ahead of the reeling Cowboys. The Rams, who rose to No. 11 last week, fell to No. 17 after losing in Green Bay.

As for the situation up top, the Patriots and Packers remain first and second. The unbeaten Falcons jumped three spots to No. 3, their first top-5 ranking of the season.
