All but one NFL week 5 game is complete which means it is time for everyone to reveal their week 6 power rankings. Yesterday there were a ton of great games and also a ton of dominating efforts from various teams around the NFL. There aren't too many changes at the top of the standings, but there are certainly a few. The Arizona Cardinals have dropped out of the top 5 following their loss on Thursday Night Football. And have the Baltimore Ravens dropped out completely following their lackluster performance against the Kansas City Chiefs? Keep reading!

1: Atlanta Falcons

If the season ended today, Matt Ryan would most likely be the NFL's unanimous NFL MVP. He has led the Falcons to an undefeated, 5-0, record and he has already thrown for over 1500 yards and 13 touchdowns. Ryan also has the best wide receiver corps in the entire league with Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez.

2: Houston Texans

The Texans will play tonight against the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. Obviously, we predict they'll win the game fairly easily. Houston has one of the most complete offenses in the National Football League with Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson in the passing game and Arian Foster on the ground.

3: San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers are coming off two straight wins with a combined score of 79-3. They have arguably the best defense in the league and their offense has put up nearly 30 points in every single one of their games. They will definitely be a contender come playoff time.

4: Chicago Bears

Some people may think this is too high for the Bears, but they have only lost one game this season. Since losing to the Green Bay Packers in week 2, the Bears have been dominating their opponents. On Sunday they beat the Jacksonville Jaguars, 41-3.

5: Baltimore Ravens

We didn't drop out the Ravens from our rankings completely, but we did move them down quite a few spots. The Kansas City Chiefs are close to being the worst team in the entire National Football League and Baltimore only beat them, 9-6. For now we will give them the benefit of the doubt and hope it was just a bad day for a team that was coming off of their bye week.
