Power Rankings: Bears maul their way to top

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

There's a new No. 1 in ESPN.com's Power Rankings. After dominating the defending NFC champion Seahawks on Sunday night, the Bears picked up enough votes to jump past the Colts. The Bears actually grabbed six of the seven first-place votes with the Colts picking up the final one. Maybe it's premature, but the Bears certainly appear to be the most complete team in the NFL right now, scoring 29 points per game and allowing only 7.3.

The top five saw considerable movement, with no teams in same spot they were last week. The Ravens, the NFL's only other undefeated team, follow the Bears and Colts at No. 2. Meanwhile, the Eagles (No. 10 to No. 4) and Patriots (No. 11 to No. 5) both made big moves into the top five.

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