SB Nation NFL Power Rankings - Post Week 6

SB Nation NFL Power Rankings
Patriots No. 1, Dolphins No. 31

I almost forgot to post the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings.

Get that respect card ready, Patriots fans. The hatred grows deeper. Your New England Patriots remain atop the rankings, but they've fallen a fraction of rating points from 1.24 to 1.27. It's an outrage! It's insanity! (It's probably because one fewer people cast votes, and that's just how the average worked out, but if we're to "fit in" with the rest of the league, we have to express our righteous indignation, right?)

Anyway, the Patriots trounced one of the other two undefeated teams in the league and they drop 0.03. Meanwhile, the Colts sat around and did nothing and climbed from 1.87 to 1.82. (OK, so maybe it's not just a math problem.) It's an outrage, I tells ya!

1 New England Patriots 6-0 1.27 1
31 Miami Dolphins 0-6 30.87 32
Meanwhile, Miami gave up 41 points to Cleveland and lost by 10. That was good enough for our voters to get them out of the basement, which they were beginning to furnish for a long stay. The St. Louis Rams are here, and they have a nice comfy futon with them after they laid down against Baltimore, 22-3 last week. Only two teams have scored fewer points this season than the former Greatest Show on Turf. Of course, those teams (Buffalo and San Francisco) have played only five games, while the Rams have played six.

OK, I've been rambling. I'm sure you can see which teams have fallen and risen in the rankings yourselves.
