NFL Week 6 Power Rankings

Josh McDaniels isn't the only one excited about the Broncos' 5-0 start - so are SB Nation's NFL bloggers. After upending the Patriots in thrilling come-from-behind fashion, Denver moves up to fifth in our latest batch of power rankings, trailing only the quartet of other undefeated teams. 

The Mannings continue their iron grip on the top of the power rankings, with Peyton's Colts, Eli's Giants and even Archie's former team the Saints maintaining their hold on the top three spots.

The Falcons and Bengals were two of the biggest risers, with their respective statement wins over the Niners and Ravens catapulting them towards the lead among the second-tier teams.

And take heart Jim Zorn: while John Riggins might not think much of your coaching abilities, SB Nation's NFL bloggers actually moved the Skins up a spot despite another soul-crushing defeat at the hands of a previously winless team (punctuated by this embarrassing "attempt" at bringing down Jake Delhomme). So you've got that going for you, which is nice.

Here are this week's rankings:
