ESPN.com's Power Rankings
The rankings were determined by a poll of ESPN.com's NFL staff -- writers John Clayton, Len Pasquarelli and Michael Smith; Scouts Inc. insiders Jeremy Green and Keith Kidd; and ESPN.com NFL editors Peter Lawrence-Riddell and Joe Wojciechowski.

No surprise at the top, where the Colts are the unanimous No. 1 team after beating the Patriots to remain undefeated. The Bears, who had been No. 1 for five straight weeks, dropped two spots to No. 3 after losing to the Dolphins. It was Chicago's second sub-par performance in three games and was enough to keep them out of the No. 2 spot. That lofty perch went to the Broncos, who jumped from No. 6 all the way to No. 2 after going on the road to beat the Steelers.

The rankings are definitely becoming top-heavy, with a pretty clear top eight developing. There's also a big logjam of 4-4 teams from No. 13 to No. 19.

At the bottom, the Cardinals maintained their hold on the No. 32 spot, but the Raiders made a strong bid with their offense's ugly performance on "Monday Night Football."

Anyway, on to the rankings. You can rank the teams yourself with SportsNation's NFL Power Rankings.
