NFL Week 5 Power Rankings

SB Nation's NFL bloggers have spoken: they like the Mannings. A lot. While it's still much too early in the year to begin speculating on potential Super Bowl match-ups, I'm sure Roger Goodell (and Oreo) are hoping that the Colts and Giants continue their Power Rankings domination all the way through January.  

The surprisingly undefeated Broncos have yet to win over all of our bloggers, with their showdown this weekend against the Patriots looming large. If Josh McDaniel's squad can upend his mentor's team, look for the Broncos to shoot up next week.

And the hapless Rams, who have been shut out in two of their four games so far, bring up the rear - although St. Louis Post-Dispatch writer Bernie Miklasz wonders if they might be headed for a more ignominious fate, asking if they could possibly be the worst team ever

Without further ado, here are SB Nation's Week 5 NFL Power Rankings, as voted by our NFL team bloggers:
