This week, it wasn't just another win for the Buffalo Bills. All week, NFL experts of every degree wanted the Bills to prove more, and noted that the New England Patriots gave them that opportunity. Buffalo erased a 21-point deficit and beat the Patriots 34-31, ending a 15-game losing streak to the Pats in the process.

The pundits got what they asked for, and as such, the Bills are once again climbing quickly in NFL power rankings - which we'll remind everyone, again, are meaningless, save for capturing the current mood of the NFL. The Bills, as you might expect, are a Top 10 mainstay.

The highest we've seen them rated is No. 3 overall, where CBS' Pete Prisco has them. Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk.com and the panel at NFL.com have them at No. 5. ESPN.com has put them at No. 6, just two weeks after having them No. 27. SI's Peter King and SB Nation have them at No. 7. FOXSports.com's Brian Billick has them at No. 8.

In short: the mood around the Bills right now is pretty excellent.
