Week 5 SB Nation NFL Power Rankings

Another NFL week is in the books (OK, yeah, it's been in the books for over two full days, but hey - bloggers can be busy too), and with that closure comes another round of the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings. These rankings are compiled weekly by contributing members of the 31 NFL bloggers here at SB Nation (including yours truly) - we simply rank teams from 1 through 32 as our submissions. Then Fooch, the fantastic blogger over at Niners Nation, takes our ballots, averages the rank of each team from the ballots, and ranks them according to those averages. Thus, the bloggers reach a consensus - and the best power rankings available are put forth.

After nearly pulling off the biggest Monday Night upset in a long time, the Bills have jumped up a bit in the rankings, falling in at #27 after spending a couple of weeks at 29. Of the nine NFL teams with one win or less, the Bills rank third amongst them (behind the Eagles and Bengals).

The full rankings are available after the jump for the sake of front page space; click "Read More" to see the entire list.
