After one week spent in the No. 5 position, the New England Patriots are once again the No. 1 team in the WEEI NFL Power Rankings, taking over the top spot following a dominating win over the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
The Patriots put up 39 points on the league's best defense, downing last week's No. 2 team, 39-26. The loss dropped Pittsburgh to No. 6. It was quite a statement game for New England.
Every NFL team has a bad game. It's how they respond the following week that shows how good they really are. The Pats once again bounced back from a loss, learned from their mistakes, and put a W in the column. Under the leadership of Bill Belichick, the Patriots are now 23-2 following a loss since 2003. The win in Pittsburgh is by-far their most impressive this year. They played physical, mistake-free football and made a statement across the league.
The Patriots' Week 11 opponents, the Indianapolis Colts, check in at No. 9, up one spot from last week.
