NFL POWER RANKINGS: Where Every Team Stands Going Into Week 6

With almost one-third of the NFL season in the books, there are three clear-cut favourites at the top of the power rankings.

Below that, though, is a crapshoot.

Teams No. 4 through No. 14 are more or less interchangeable.

Elsewhere in the rankings, the Falcons continued to tumble and the Browns climbed.

1. Seattle Seahawks (previously: 1st)

Record: 3-1

Week 5 result: 27-17 win over Washington

One thing to know: On a team with no obvious weaknesses, the offensive line might be something to watch. They had two key penalties that negated touchdowns in Week 5.

2. Denver Broncos (previously: 2nd)

Record: 3-1

Week 5 result: 41-20 win over Arizona

One thing to know: What do we make of the sluggish rushing offence? Denver hasn't broken 100 yards rushing since Week 1.

3. San Diego Chargers (previously: 4th)

Record: 4-1

Week 5 result: 31-0 win over New York Jets

One thing to know: Phillip Rivers is down to the fourth-string center, and he's still putting up MVP-type numbers.

4. Cincinnati Bengals (previously: 3rd)

Record: 3-1

Week 5 result: 43-17 loss to New England

One thing to know: They have one of the best pass defenses in the league (3rd in yards per attempt) but one of the worst rush defenses in the league (29th in yards per rush). If they get down early, it's a problem.

5. San Francisco 49ers (previously: 6th)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 22-17 win over Kansas City

One thing to know: Colin Kaepernick is running it a ton. He already has two games of 10 or more rushing attempts this year. He only had that many carries in one regular season game coming into 2014.

6. Green Bay Packers (previously: 11th)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 42-10 win over Minnesota

One thing to know: The offence has put up 80 points in its last eight quarters.

7. Dallas Cowboys (previously: 12th)

Record: 4-1

Week 5 result: 20-17 OT win over Houston

One thing to know: There's concern that DeMarco Murray -- who has been Dallas' entire offence this year -- might break down with all these carries.

8. Philadelphia Eagles (previously: 8th)

Record: 4-1

Week 5 result: 34-28 win over St. Louis

One thing to know: Philly has two offensive touchdowns in its last two games.

9. Indianapolis Colts (previously: 10th)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 20-13 win over Baltimore

One thing to know: The next five games are going to tell us everything we need to know about this team. They get Houston, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, the Giants, and New England.

10. New England Patriots (previously: 13th)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 43-17 win over Cincinnati

11. Baltimore Ravens (previously: 5th)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 20-13 loss to Indianapolis

One thing to know: The offence only converted 9% of their third downs in Week 5.

12. Arizona Cardinals (previously: 7th)

Record: 3-1

Week 5 result: 41-20 loss to Denver

13. Detroit Lions (previously: 9th)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 17-14 loss to Buffalo

One thing to know: They'd be 4-1 if it wasn't for Alex Henery, who missed all his kicks in Week 5.

14. New York Giants (previously: 21st)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 30-20 win over Atlanta

One thing to know: The NFC East suddenly might be really good? The Giants can pull even in the division race with a win over Philly on Sunday night.

15. Buffalo Bills (previously: 22nd)

Record: 3-2

Week 5 result: 17-14 win over Detroit

One thing to know: Everyone is raving about Kyle Orton, which tells you how they really thought about E.J. Manuel.

25. Minnesota Vikings (previously: 23rd)

27. Washington Redskins (previously: 25th)

Record: 1-4

Week 5 result: 27-17 loss to Seattle

28. New York Jets (previously: 26th)

Record: 1-4

Week 5 result: 31-0 loss to San Diego
