After defeating the Denver Broncos on Sunday for their sixth straight victory, the New England Patriots improved one spot to No. 4 in SB Nation's Week 16 NFL Power Rankings

The Pats have now won six straight and they finish off the season against the Dolphins and Bills, which means they should enter the postseason on an eight-game winning streak. As usual, they're getting hot at the right time. 

New England's 41-23 win against Denver clinched the AFC East division title, the ninth time New England has earned the divisional crown in the 11 seasons since Tom Brady became the team's starting quarterback. The Patriots have not lost since Week 9, a 24-20 defeat against the New York Giants on Nov. 6.

New England returns to the field on Saturday afternoon at home against the Miami Dolphins.
