Rank 'Em: NFL Power Rankings

Created: November 2, 2009, 4:26 PM

Will the 5-2 Cowboys rise in your rankings?

Welcome to the halfway point of the NFL regular season. With eight weeks down and eight weeks to go, you can usually tell if your team is headed for playoff contention or NFL draft contention. Yet just when you think you have the NFL all figured out, the Giants lose three straight, the Cowboys win three straight and the Rams win a game (giving them an actual chance in the NFC West).

So which teams are the contenders and which are the pretenders? Did the Colts' scare against the 49ers have you question Peyton Mannings' team? Can the Broncos hold on in the last eight weeks and continue their season of surprise? It's time for you, SportsNation, to rank all 32 NFL teams!

Be sure to tune into "SportsNation" (weekdays on ESPN2 at 4 p.m. and midnight ET) to see which teams make the top five!
