LVSC Rankings - Broncos surge

Las Vegas Sports Consultants has released it latest NFL power rankings, as the surprising teams are making a move up, while several of the disappointing teams are languishing near the bottom. Two of the top three teams in the rankings hook up on Sunday in the Big Easy.

The Giants remain in the top spot once again, after dismantling the Raiders. New York improved to 5-0 with the victory, but the Giants have cruised along after beating Tampa Bay, Kansas City, and Oakland the last three weeks, who have a combined one win. Regardless, the Giants are 18-3 SU their last 21 games on the road, heading to New Orleans on Sunday.

The 4-0 Saints slipped one spot from 3rd to 2nd coming off the bye week. New Orleans still has not played a division game, playing their first division opponent in Week 8, taking on Atlanta. The task at hand though this week is a tough one, hosting the top-ranked Giants.

The Colts jumped two spots from 4th to 2nd following the Sunday night pasting of the winless Titans. Indianapolis is now up to 5-0 for the fifth time in the last seven seasons. The Colts hit the bye week this Sunday, but there is no reason to think that will slow them down. Indianapolis plays St. Louis, San Francisco, and Houston the next three games before hosting New England in Week 10.

The Patriots fell one position from 3rd to 4th after their overtime loss at Denver. New England gave away a ten-point halftime lead in its second loss of the season, but Bill Belichick's team returns home to host 0-5 Tennessee.

The Steelers are tied for 4th with the Patriots following a 28-20 win at Detroit. Pittsburgh has rebounded with back-to-back victories after consecutive losses to Chicago and Cincinnati. Mike Tomlin's team comes back to Heinz Field to battle the 1-4 Browns this week.

The Broncos are still turning heads around the league with their 5-0 start, as Denver sits in the 12th spot this week. Josh McDaniels' club has rallied in each of its last two home wins, beating the Cowboys and Patriots. Denver will be showcased in the Monday Night spotlight this week at San Diego, meeting the Chargers for the first time since last season's December meltdown.

The Bengals are one miracle play away from being in Denver's shoes, but Cincinnati should still be happy with a 4-1 mark. Marvin Lewis' team jumped three spots from 19th to 16th after winning at Baltimore, as Cincinnati takes on Houston this week at home.

The Titans had the biggest drop this week, falling from 17th to 21st following the embarrassing home loss to the Colts. Jeff Fisher's team is still looking for answers at 0-5, while allowing at least 31 points in three of their losses. It doesn't get easier for Tennessee, heading to Foxboro to battle the Patriots.
