Just like the WEEI Rankings, the New England Patriots are back in the No. 1 position in the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings, taking over the top spot after thoroughly dismantling the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.
The Patriots take the No. 1 ranking from the Baltimore Ravens, who dropped all the way to No. 7 after a loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
The Patriots walked into Pittsburgh and dismantled the Steelers. That may be the most impressive performance of any team this season. They're your new No. 1.
New England is followed by the Green Bay Packers at No. 2, and then the Atlanta Falcons, the New York Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles. With three teams in the top five, and five of the top ten, Week 12 is by far the best showing for the NFC this season.
The Patriots' Week 11 opponent, the Indianapolis Cots, held steady at No. 6 following a win over the Bengals.
The rest of the AFC East is in the bottom half of the rankings, with the Miami Dolphins at No. 16 and the Buffalo Bills all the way up at No. 28.
