Power Rankings: No. 23 Buffalo Bills

A weekly examination of the Bills' ESPN.com Power Ranking:

Preseason: 30 | Last Week: 25 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002

After their first back-to-back wins of the season, the Buffalo Bills moved up two spots in our weekly ESPN.com Power Rankings.

The Bills are now ranked No. 23, which is just shy of their high-water mark of the season (No. 20). Still, it's a good late-season run for a team that was No. 26 and at risk of sinking lower two weeks ago.

Already eliminated from the playoffs, the Bills' final task this season will be to potentially deal a blow to the New England Patriots' playoff position on Sunday. The Patriots are vying for the No. 2 seed in the AFC, but a loss could potentially drop New England's seed and force it to host a wild-card playoff game.

The Patriots come in at No. 5 in this week's rankings.
