As we inch toward the playoff race, there are two new teams in the top five of our NFL power rankings.

A new juggernaut has emerged in Green Bay, and a team that everyone thought would regress is starting to hit its stride in Kansas City.

Elsewhere, the Browns, Redskins, and all of the NFC South tumbled.

1. New England Patriots (previously: 1st)

Record: 8-2

Week 11 result: 42-20 win over Indianapolis

One thing to know: Signing an ex-comedian and having him run for four touchdowns is peak Bill Belichick.
