2013 NFL Power Rankings: Week 3

Updated: September 18, 2013, 2:17 PM ET

Maybe San Francisco isn't the class of the NFL after all.

On the heels of an impressive season opener, the 49ers supplanted Seattle as the No. 1 team here a week ago. Well, now the roles are reversed. After manhandling Colin Kaepernick & Co. on Sunday night, the Seahawks were a nearly unanimous choice among our voters (John Clayton, Ashley Fox, Dan Graziano, Jamison Hensley, Mike Sando and Kevin Seifert) for the top spot.

The 49ers dropped to No. 3, while the Broncos moved to No. 2. Houston and Green Bay round out the top five.

In addition to Seattle's ascension, Week 2 was notable because of who's trending downward. The significant fallers include the Eagles (minus-5), Redskins (minus-5) and Giants (minus-4). Yes, the NFC East has seen better days.

Will these teams continue to slide? Will a No. 1 hold serve for the first time in 2013? The intrigue builds as we head into Week 3.
