NFL Power Rankings, Week 4: Patriots Slip To No. 5 After Loss To Bills

Tom Brady had another electrifying performance against the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, throwing for nearly 400 yards and four touchdowns. Unfortunately, Brady also threw four interceptions and the New England Patriots were edged by their division rivals, 34-31, dropping the Pats to No. 5 in the latest NFL Power Rankings from SB Nation.

5. New England Patriots (2-1, LW: 2): Tom Brady was 14 yards shy of setting an NFL record with three consecutive 400-plus yard passing games. The problem? It came in a loss.

Without surprise, the reigning Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers remained on top of the rankings after posting their third straight win of the season. The Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers round out the top four in the Week 4 rankings.

Immediately after the Pats are the New York Jets at No. 6 after being upset by the Oakland Raiders. Buffalo came in at No. 7 after beating New England and the Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans round out the top ten. St. Louis, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Miami and Minnesota - all of which are 0-3 - round out the bottom five in the rankings this week, respectively.
