NFL Power Rankings, Week 9: Big Week For Buffalo Bills

It's been two weeks since the Buffalo Bills lost a football game, and as NFL power rankings go, that's done wonders for Buffalo's proverbial stock in the minds of NFL experts everywhere.

During their bye last weekend, the Bills managed to creep upward on most lists thanks to losses by teams ahead of them. After their 23-0 shutout win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, the Bills are again moving up - and in most places are just outside of the top five teams in the league.

The voting panel at NFL.com, for instance, has them at No. 6. So does Brian Billick at FOXSports.com. SI's Peter King and the voting panel at ESPN.com have them one spot lower at No. 7. Joel Thorman of SBNation.com has the Bills at No. 8, while PFT's Mike Florio has them all the way down at No. 10.

Universally, however, everyone agrees: Week 9 is a huge one for Buffalo with the New York Jets (Nos. 13, 12, 11, 13, 12 and 17, respectively) looming.
