    Having Denver #1 is just ridiculous. Let's see:

    • same record
    • Denver on a 7-game winning streak; NE on a 6-game streak
    • NE scoring 7 points more/game; Denver giving up only 1.4 less points/game
    • NE won the head-to-head convincingly
    It's just silly.

    The AP Pro32 (same format as College ranking) has Pats tied with Falcons for #2 behind Texans

    Denver has beat 2-10 Kansas City, 3-9 Oakland, 3-9 Carolina, and 4-8 San Diego twice. 5 of their 9 wins have come against teams with 4 wins or less. The other 3 have come against teams with records of 5-7, 6-6, 7-5 and 7-5. No wins over really strong teams. The Pats have been criticized for their schedule, but Denver's schedule has been much, much weaker, not to mention the head-to-head loss to the Pats.

    I'm not buying into the Denver hype.

    I still think we take them even if we have to go there for the playoffs.

    Peyton is still throwing a lot of picks, and lets face it. while the Jets, dolphins and bills have been bad, the chiefs, chargers and raiders have been darn awful.

    To pile onto Denver - I posted it in another thread, but they've been outscored 89-32 in the first three quarters of their only three difficult games. (Texans, Falcons, Patriots).

    I'm guessing the Ravens, who are depleted, banged-up and not playing their best, still manage to beat them next week.

    Though I will say they show up as #2 in DVOA behind us in FootballOutsiders, which always does pretty well at measuring real efficiency. They have the #5 defense and #2 offense. We have the #1 offense by a hefty margin. We have the #18 defense.

    None of the NFL teams seem dominant on both O and D right now, we can say our team is the best if our D can play well against QBs like Eli,Rodgers ppl who can throw the ball deep.

    Believe me the moment you see a down field throw like the one Russell wilson had against us no one here will say we are the best. Its just that our D hasnt really been test in a while

    The Pats have a dynamic offense (pick your poison) and an opportunistic defense, but haven't fielded their best team(personnel-wise) yet. i just hope they get healthy and stay healthy for the post season...power ranking be darned

    I find the Falcons over the Pats more ridiculous than the Broncos at #1. Easiest schedule in the league this year by quite a bit. Do the Falcons scare anyone?

    Sagarin has the Pats #1 ahead of Houston, San Fran and Denver.
