49ers hold the top spot while a very familiar face has his team at #2.
Sorry I'm a bit late with the Power Rankings, as real life has gotten me running a bit behind schedule this week. There was a bit of a shake-up at the top, as the Winning Stats don't care as much about whether you win or lose, but how you play that weekend. That means that when you don't play well, at home, against bad teams, even though you win you drop in our Power Rankings, and that's what happened to both the Bears and Packers, who fall from 2nd and 3rd to 5th and 8th respectively. Who jumped up to take their spots, falling just behind the 49ers?
Remember that Peyton Manning guy? His Broncos claim the #2 spot, and the Texans move up to #3. The biggest surprise still is the 9th ranked Cowboys, who can't seem to get out of their own way, but could win a few more games than their record may suggest down the stretch. Just something to watch for.
The Colts move down one spot to 26th despite their 4-3 record and back-to-back wins. Only the Bills and Saints are playing worse defensively. Ugh.

I wasn't expecting to see the Vikings the 2nd worst team in the NFC, but that's where they are. It's still amazing to see all those AFC teams playing so bad.
