Power Rankings: AFC grabs top three spots

ESPN.com's Power Rankings
The rankings were determined by a poll of ESPN.com's NFL staff -- writers John Clayton, Len Pasquarelli and Michael Smith; Scouts Inc. insiders Jeremy Green and Keith Kidd; and ESPN.com NFL editors Peter Lawrence-Riddell and Joe Wojciechowski.

The Chargers maintain their unanimous hold on the top spot in the rankings. Moving back into the top five this week are the Colts, who jumped from No. 6 back up to No. 3. The Bears maintained the spot at No. 4, the highest ranking for any NFC team.

The Eagles continued their flight up the rankings, moving into the top 10 (No. 9). Three weeks ago the Eagles were 22nd after losing to the Colts. A week before that we wrote that the Eagles were "cooked" without Donovan McNabb. Guess we were wrong about that.

Anyway, on to the rankings. You can rank the teams yourself with SportsNation's NFL Power Rankings.
