NFL Power Rankings--Week 4

Here are this week's NFL power rankings and after you are finished, please listen to the Eagles podcast at Philly.com.

1. Colts (2005 record: 3-0, Last week: No. 1): Another strong performance by the defense and the offense is playing on the conservative side.

2. Patriots (2-1, No. 5): Strong game going on the road to beat Pittsburgh. Tom Brady goes 12-for-12 in the fourth quarter. Loss of Rodney Harrison could be critical.

3. Eagles (2-1, No. 3): Playing with pain games by Donovan McNabb and David Akers lift Philly over the Raiders. Injuries could be very costly as the season progresses.

4. Steelers (2-1, No. 2): Patriots showed again who is the best team in the AFC. The Steelers are a close second. Bye week.

5. Falcons (2-1, No. 7): Warrick Dunn, T.J. Duckett and Michael Vick rush for 236 yards and beat Buffalo on the road. Get the Vikings at home next.

6. Bengals (3-0, No. 9): Cincinnati looks like they are in hunt to stay. Watch out, Pittsburgh. Should go to 4-0 with Houston next.

7. Buccaneers (3-0, No. 10): Tampa Bay goes into Green Bay and wins for the first time since ... it' too long to remember.

8. Seahawks (2-1, No. 14): The Seahawks made a statement against the Cardinals. They will be the team to beat in the NFC West.

9. Chargers (1-2, No. 13): They are only 1-2, but would you be convinced if they beat the Patriots this week?

10. Jaguars (2-1, No. 16): Another team relying on its defense to win. Should handle Denver at home.

11. Broncos (2-1, No. 18): A convincing home win over the Chiefs on Monday night. The Jags will be a tough test in short week.

12. Chiefs (2-1, No. 6): Reality check. Kansas City has to follow a 30-10 loss to Denver by playing the Eagles.

13. Giants (2-1, No. 8): A second-half collapse in San Diego is nothing to be ashamed of.

14. Panthers (1-2, No. 4): A Monday night home win against Green Bay should help the Carolina forget its loss to the Dolphins.

15. Cowboys (2-1, No. 17): Dallas needed a big second half to come from behind against the 49ers. A trap game at Oakland awaits.

16. Rams (2-1, No. 19): The Rams struggled at home against the Titans, but they did get the win. Face the Giants on road in a game that could help determine the makeup of the NFC.

17. Vikings (1-2, No. 24): Minnesota wins the must-win game against the Saints, and Daunte Culpepper (21-29-300) looks great doing it. The Vikings can make a statement this week in Atlanta.

18. Redskins (2-0, No. 22): Washington moves up four spots with a bye and this week plays a good Seattle team at home.

19. Dolphins (2-1. No. 29): With wins over Denver and Carolina and a loss to the Jets, Miami is proving it is for real. Ricky Williams is one week away.

20. Bills (1-2, No. 11): They lose to the Falcons and know now that they have to worry about the Dolphins in the division.

21. Jets (1-2, No. 12): Chad Pennington and Jay Fieldler are out and Brooks Bollinger is in. If that isn't bad enough, the Ravens defense awaits.

22. Ravens: (0-2, No. 26): Coming off a bye week, the Ravens are licking their chops at the thought of Bollinger quarterbacking the Jets.

23. Saints (1-2, No. 15): New Orleans plays its first game at its home away from home in San Antonio. Tickets still available.

24. Bears (1-2, No. 20): Found out first hand how good the Bengals are this season. Will get healthy during the bye week.

25. Titans (1-2, No. 25): Played the Rams tough on the road last week and now have to take on the undefeated Colts.

26. Browns (1-2, No. 23): Cleveland gives the Colts a game and Colts give the Browns a loss. Bye week.

27. Cardinals (0-3, No. 21): They have to beat the 49ers in Mexico City or the season might as well be a complete loss.

28. Lions (1-1, No. 27): Coming off the bye week, the Lions are in first place in the NFC North. Go figure. On the road at Tampa Bay figures to be a loss.

29. Raiders: (0-3, No. 28): Had the Eagles on the ropes and let it get away. Have to beat Dallas at home.

30. Texans (0-2. No. 31): Coming off the bye week they have to face the undefeated Bengals. Ugh!

31. San Francisco (1-2, No. 32): Had the Cowboys beat and let them get away with a win. In Mexico City to play the Cardinals.

32. Packers (0-3, No. 30): Too much is put on Brett Favre. This team is terrible right now.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

Hi: I was looking for information on cosmetic surgery and can upon your site. I'm working on a site about San Diego plastic surgery and looking for any good facts that I might be able to incorporate into my site to really provide an in-depth information source. After reading your Blog, I found it interesting, but, it wasn't what I was looking for. With that said, I must say I've enjoyed reading it. I bookmarked your blog for the future. Well I'm off again in search for plastic surgery information.
