The New England Patriots have fallen in the majority of power polls after Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

The New England Patriots have dropped in the majority of power ranking polls following Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Despite the drop, the Patriots remain in the top-10 in most of the lists as several of the curator's do not believe that the team's 3-3 record is an accurate representation of its talent level.

In SB Nation's power poll compiled by editor Joel Thorman, the Patriots have dropped three spots to No. 9 overall. Thorman believes that some may not agree with his ranking and asks readers to give him their input (you can do so by clicking here).

Fox Sports' poll from Brian Billick also has the Patriots at No. 9 overall, which was a drop of four spots from last week's ranking. According to Billick, he is unable to put a Tom Brady-led team any lower than where he placed them. He believes the team will rebound next week against the New York Jets.

In ESPN.com's poll the Patriots only moved down two spots from last week to the No. 7 overall position.
