Following Sunday's loss in Cleveland, the Patriots fell four spots, surrendering the No. 1 position to the Baltimore Ravens.
The Patriots offense is still adjusting to life without Randy Moss. Tom Brady and his offensive unit have struggled over the past few weeks, especially Wes Welker. Over the past three weeks Welker hasn't had more than four catches. Defensively, the Pats have struggled tremendously against the run. They will have a chance to redeem themselves against one of the best running backs in the league, Rashard Mendenhall, Sunday night against the Steelers.
The Steelers are ranked No. 2. The Jets and Giants round out the top-five.
