2010 NFL Power Rankings: Week 5

Updated: October 5, 2010, 3:48 PM ET

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost a Week 4 slugfest with the Baltimore Ravens but still reign atop the latest ESPN.com NFL Power Rankings.

The Ravens won a 17-14 thriller in Pittsburgh to tie the Steelers atop the AFC North. Still, Joe Flacco's heroics only netted the Ravens No. 6 overall in the weekly poll of our experts.

The Steelers slightly edged the New Orleans Saints for the top ranking, followed by the Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons to round out the top five.

Week 5 promises more intrigue as the Jets entertain their former QB Brett Favre and the No. 16 Minnesota Vikings on ESPN's "Monday Night Football."

The No. 9 Indianapolis Colts, whose last-second loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars cost them six rungs, play host to the No. 10 Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs, coming off a bye, are the last unbeaten team.
