The Packers didn't, but considering they could have put up another 50-burger if they'd wanted to, we're not removing them from the top spot. A week after beating the former No. 1 in our Power Rankings, Aaron Rodgers and Co. did not come out flat against the Falcons in prime time -- they just didn't flatten anyone on defense. In other news ...
Here they come ...
OK, enough shenanigans -- we have a whole league to discuss (and rank). And in addition to the content below, be sure to check out the "Power Rankings Show" on NFL.com and NFL NOW. We go in-depth on the league hierarchy -- and show some video, to boot! Lastly, be sure to share your take: @HarrisonNFL is the place.
Let the dissension commence!
1) Tom Brady
3) Brett Favre
4) Drew Brees
By the way, I faced a guy in my fantasy football playoffs who started Joique Bell on Sunday -- and of course, that tipped Matthew Stafford pass fell right into Bell's hands in front of the goal line. Exactly how you draw it up.
***Power Rankings side note:*** I might be coming around on that " [J.J. Watt](/player/j.j.watt/2495488/profile) for MVP" push. Maybe. </content:power-ranking>

[Paul Soliai](/player/paulsoliai/2507195/profile): Probable (shoulder)
[Julio Jones](/player/juliojones/2495454/profile), Questionable (exhaustion -- toasting Packer DBs too many times)
[Robert Alford](/player/robertalford/2539653/profile), Questionable (wrist)
[Roddy White](/player/roddywhite/2506366/profile), Probable (ankle) </content:power-ranking>
OK. So what's the issue, Saints fans? New Orleans has never played like this in front of the home folk. Sure, Rob Ryan's defense is deservedly coming under fire, but what about the offense?
