Week 4 power rankings: Packers back on top

1.) Packers — In a season in which no team has totally distinguished itself, someone must be ranked first. I’ll go with my preseason pick.

2.) Saints — Will be getting Reggie Bush and Darren Sharper back in coming weeks. Winning with D this year.

3.) RavensJoe Flacco may have just posted a seminal win Sunday in Pittsburgh.

4.) SteelersBig Ben returns and everything else is pretty much in place.

5.) Colts — Could be worst Colts team in more than five years, but no one else dominating in this season, either.

6.) Patriots — Big, big win for them, hadn’t looked good against divisional teams.

7.) Jets — They have been a different team the past three weeks … and now Santonio Holmes comes back.

8.) Texans — A win is a win … and now Brian Cushing comes back.

9.) FalconsMatt Ryan got a reprieve when Nate Clements was stripped, and made the most of it.

10.) Titans — Can’t seem to get out of their own way at times, but I still expect them to contend.

11.) Chargers — Let’s see all three phases of the game show up two straight weeks.

12.) Bengals — What happened to the running game? Can’t get any balance on offense.

13.) Dolphins — Need to regroup.

14.) Chiefs — Will the early bye week sap some of their momentum?

15.) Cowboys — Have a feeling they get things going a little bit here.

16.) Broncos — Showing a lot of gumption and spirit; need to get a run game going.

17.) Giants — Will 9-7 win the NFC East? Epic defensive performance.

18.) Eagles — The injuries are getting a little surreal.

19.) Vikings — Not sure an early bye is gonna help Brett Favre and that offense much.

20.) Bears — That was humiliating to watch. Confirmed every fear I have about their OL/protection.

21.) RamsSam Bradford might be enough to win the NFC Least.

22.) Redskins — Huge win for team and Donovan McNabb; much-needed defensive adjustments.

23.) Jaguars — Emotional win and big upset. Want to see that sustained.

24.) Seahawks — Startling difference between their home and road play.

25.) Bucs — Promising start will be tough to maintain.

26.) 49ers — I still believe they can win that division.

27.) Raiders — I actually thought they’d finish .500 or better. Someone hit me with a brick.

28.) Browns — Becoming a power running team is only thing that makes sense.

29.) Panthers — Showed some spunk.

30.) Lions — Can’t imagine them winning a game til Matthew Stafford comes back.

31.) CardinalsMax Hall, come on down.

32.) Bills — So whatever spark there was from the QB change is obviously gone. Now what? Trade Marshawn Lynch.
