NFL Power Rankings, Week 5: Patriots New No. 1

Four weeks of the NFL season are in the books (the 2010 regular season is already 25% complete sadface), and in the Week 5 NFL Power Rankings over at SB Nation, the New England Patriots have taken over the top spot, jumping up from No. 4 a week ago.

Are the Patriots the best team in the NFL? It's hard to argue with their 41-14 stomping of the Dolphins on Monday Night Football. The Patriots enter the bye week comfortably sitting on top of the SB Nation power rankings.

AFC East rival New York is also on the move, climbing from No. 6 to No. 3 on the strength of their dismantling of the Bills over the weekend. Meanwhile, the Dolphins dropped from No. 17 to No. 20.

The Saints are No. 2, and the Packers and Ravens round at the top five at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.
