It's Tuesday which means various media outlets are coming out with their 2011 NFL power rankings for Week 4 and once again the Buffalo Bills
(and the Detroit Lions
) are the talk of the town. The Bills topped the New England Patriots
after being down by 21 points -- a week after beating the Oakland Raiders
after being down 18 points -- and firmly entrenched themselves as a top 10 team in the NFL.
The Bills sitting at No. 3 in some power rankings after three weeks is why the NFL is so great. There's parity in the NFL, to the point where (almost) every NFL team can legitimately claim they're contenders before the season starts.
Buffalo is a perfect example of that.
