Pats fall five spots to number 11!
The Pats are #10 at ESPN also. Love the disrepect!
Is it really disrespect or earned through the softness of the secondary?
cbs sportsline has them at #2 behind of course the colts.

Didn't you hear? The Patriots struggled to beat a bad Jets team, even though the only chance the Jets had to tie the game was a hail mary thrown to the 20. They obviously aren't very good.
Ranked 11 in NFL.com
Pitt struggles against a horrid Miami team and then looses to Jville (not socring a point) and they are rated ahead of us..../boggle.
The Patriots 2-0 Go down 5 spots after lack-luster win over Jets - not playing 60 minutes of FootBall.
The NY Giants (1-1) GAIN 3 spots for playing 15 minutes of football ????
I think the ranking is about right for where we are as a team. Face it, we beat the Bills by a safety, and we let Jets get back into the game after a 24-0 lead. #11 is about right, hope it will motivate the D to do better against Denver (not that they read this post anyway!)
I think #11 isn't far off either. In my heart of homer hearts I think we're superbowl bound but looking at these guys from the outside, so far we have no passing game and a defense that has looked soft for one half of both games we've played against mediocre at best teams.
#11 is what it is, I suspect it will go up after this weeks win.
What I find interesting is:
#19 Bills +8 spots
#23 Jets -3 spots
#24 Miami -9 spots
I only disagree with Pitt and NYG being ranked higher. Besides that I would say they got it about right.
All power rankings are bunk!
The only rank that counts is the one at the end of the season. Honestly though, I've never understood the fascination with "power rankings" - a team's record is their rank. Debating a team's placement after two games (or 8) is fruitless. Sorry, just don't get it.
