Patriots are now clearly on top and have although the Cowboys are not too too far behind. Minnesota continues to sink. Baltimore enjoys its highest rank of the year (6th spot). There is not too much separation between that rank and 15th spot in terms of overall rating, so a lot of parity in the tier just below the best teams.
Indianapolis takes top spot, with their humiliation of the Vikings in Minneapolis. Carolina was also impressive on the road against Washington, and they earn the second most impressive victory of the week.
