Now for our weekly look at the various power rankings.

We start with the ESPN Power Rankings.

They moved the Titans up to #23 from #25.  Their top 5:

1.  Indy
2.  San Diego
3.  Baltimore
4.  New England
5.  Chicago

Interesting that the Colts moved back to #1 after beating a lifeless Eagles team.  Good thing we know Peyton will choke in the playoffs so this doesn't really matter.

Next we move to CBS Sportsline.  They have the Titans at #24 up from #25 last week.  Here is their top 5:

1.  Indy
2.  Baltimore
3.  Chargers
4.  New England
5.  Chicago

Interesting they moved Baltimore over San Diego here.  I still think San Diego is the best team in the league even though they barely squeaked one out against the Raiders.

Fox Sports has the Titans at #22 up from #25 last week.

Here is their top 5:

1.  San Diego
2.  Indy
3.  Baltimore
4.  New England
5.  Chicago

I think they actually have it correct.  I might even flip Indy and Baltimore simply because Indy hasn't faced a defense of Baltimore's caliber yet.  If those two meet in the playoffs it will be a defensive battle and I think that would be advantage Baltimore.

I was going to add the computer rankings that zackmann mentioned last week but they have not been update at this time.  Check the comments later for that ranking.  The same goes for Dr. Z as well.
