Week:'s Power Poll
The rankings are determined by a poll of's NFL staff -- senior writers John Clayton, Len Pasquarelli and Chris Mortensen (click here for Mort's rankings) and NFL editors Peter Lawrence-Riddell and James C. Black. Click here to let us know what you think.
Editor's note: The Power Rankings are updated every Tuesday.

After a 49-31 shootout victory over the Bills, the Raiders retained their spot on top of our rankings. Impressive wins by the Dolphins and Broncos jumped them up to the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, once again establishing the AFC as the stronger conference.

In Tampa, the offense still isn't clicking on all cylinders, but with a defense like that, who cares?

Chargers' fans, already upset by last week's rankings, probably won't like this week's version any better. We said last week we were sold on the Chargers at least for one week. Well, after one week and a loss to the Broncos we're not quite as sold on San Diego, who falls from No. 4 to No. 10.

Anyway, on to the rankings. If you want to see last week's rankings, click here.
