Apparently a record setting performance by New England's offense wasn't enough to give them the top spot in this week's power rankings.

For now that belongs to the Green Bay Packers, who grabbed the top spot through the first week of the NFL season.

New England came in ranked 2nd following their big win over Miami monday night, with a big match-up against the San Diego Chargers up next.  The Chargers are currently ranked 9th.

As for the rest of the AFC East, the Jets are ranked 5th, while the Dolphins and Bill are ranked 26th and 27th respectively.
