Power Rankings: No. 6 Indianapolis Colts

A weekly examination of the Colts’ ESPN.com Power Ranking:

Preseason: 10 | Last week: 9 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002

The five remaining undefeated teams are the only things standing between the Indianapolis Colts and a top-five ranking. So an argument can’t be made that the Colts aren’t getting any respect in this week’s rankings. I was a little surprised the Dolphins are ranked a spot behind the Colts since they beat Indianapolis on the road in Week 2. Voters John Clayton and Dan Graziano feel the same way because they had the Dolphins ranked higher than the Colts. The Colts are the fourth-best team in the AFC based off this week's rankings. They should move up even higher if they beat the undefeated Seattle Seahawks at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday. With a win against Seattle, the Colts should move past at least Kansas City because the Chiefs are playing Tennessee, which is without starting quarterback Jake Locker (hip).

Here’s where each voter ranked the Colts this week:

Ashley Fox: 6

Mike Sando: 6

Kevin Seifert: 5

John Clayton: 7

Dan Graziano: 8

Jamison Hensley: 6
