Things were pretty static at the top of the Power Rankings, thanks to impressive victories by the Texans, Bears and Giants. There was a shakeup at the bottom, though, as the Browns finally climbed out of the number 32 hole.
1. Atlanta Falcons (6-0) LW: 1
The Dirty Birds were off this week but maintained their grip on the number one spot, thanks to being undefeated.
2. Houston Texans (6-1) LW: 2
Houston absolutely demolished the Ravens, widening the gap between the Texans and everyone else in the AFC.
3. Chicago Bears (5-1) LW: 3
It wasn’t pretty, but the Bears took down the Lions on Monday night, improving to 5-1 and staying at the No. 3 spot.
4. New York Giants (5-2) LW: 4
Another late game gem from Eli Manning avoided a loss to RGIII and the Redskins.
5. San Francisco 49ers (5-2) LW: 6
The Niners beat the Seahawks in a defensive struggle Thursday night in a newly-improved division battle.
6. Minnesota Vikings (5-2) LW: 7
The Vikings keep doing it even though most people are waiting for them to fall apart.
7. Green Bay Packers (4-3) LW: 8
Aaron Rodgers seems to have his swagger back, as all the hip kids say, and the Packers are back to their winning ways.
8. Baltimore Ravens (5-2) LW: 5
The Ravens continued their trend of looking either really great or really horrible Sunday, looking really, really horrible against the Texans.
9. New England Patriots (4-3) LW: 10
The Patriots edged out the Jets in an overtime battle, which probably says more about the Patriots’ struggles than the Jets’ productivity.
10. Arizona Cardinals (4-3) LW: 9
The Cards have lost three straight and are in danger of sliding out of the Top Ten.
11. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) LW: 11
12. Seattle Seahawks (4-3) LW: 12
13. Denver Broncos (3-3) LW: 13

The Panthers have finally, after seven weeks, supplanted the Browns as the worst team, according to the tonyblogs.net Power Rankings. Congrats, Cleveland, at least you’re making progress.

YOU GOT BURNED
Eli Manning and DeAngelo Hall went back and forth over the winning touchdown Manning threw to beat the Redskins in the final minutes of their game.
It seems every time the New York Giants post a big win, there is always someone ready to shoot it down.
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said Green Bay handed the Giants a win in the NFC semifinal last season, and 49ers safety Donte Whitner bemoaned similar feelings after New York won in overtime in the NFC title game.

Early on in his career, Eli Manning struggled to establish himself as a leader of the New York Giants. When you take over as the quarterback of a team that has veterans on offense like Tiki Barber, Plaxico Burress, Jeremy Shockey and Amani Toomer, it’s easy to feel like a little fish in a big pond. That’s why Manning is clearly enjoying life more now that people like the aforementioned...
DeAngelo Hall insists he did not mean any disrespect earlier this week when he said the Washington Redskins gave Eli Manning and the New York Giants a win last Sunday. When discussing New York’s game-winning 77-yard touchdown, Hall basically said anyone could have made the throw and that it was nothing more than a blown coverage. Several Giants players ripped him for the comments...
