The Week 5 Power Rankings are here -- and so is some serious movement. Yes, at the quarter pole, we're reshuffling the deck. Hey, but that's what makes this whole deal fun, right? Almost as fun as poring over the fine print in the NFL rulebook ...
Agreed on the first point. The Lions had 55 minutes to do something on offense. And yes, we'll never know what would've happened from the 1-yard line. Oh, and I'm going with mint-chocolate ice cream cake, maybe with a plastic Sylvester Puddy Tat on top -- instead of the SpongeBob piece Baskin-Robbins always puts on there nowadays. No SpongeBob.
Detroit wasn't the only team to experience misfortune in Week 4.
And they are down two more players -- ugh.
Yes, you will find that those Cowboys dropped more than a couple spots, based on more than just losing to one of the NFL's weaker teams. In fact, they were leapfrogged by a division rival in the process, keeping the NFC East's highest-ranked team parked squarely at 15. (At least it's the top half, right?)
Let the dissension commence!
[Ravens](/teams/baltimoreravens/profile?team=BAL) fans hop on Twitter as much, but in their case, it's more *"Hey, we're still kinda good!"* or -- a favorite -- *"Your (sic) an idiot."*
Truth is, New England is a premier team right now -- and surprisingly, the defense is a large reason for that. The unit might not be setting the world on fire, but 17th in points allowed is solid enough for Tom Brady, who, well, is setting the world on fire.
On a day when the Falcons racked up 48 points, how in the world did Julio Jones only catch four passes for 38 yards? If you're a Jones fantasy owner, seeing the final score and then seeing Jones' output must have been like getting excited after finding the four quarters you need to wash your underwear ... only to learn your landlord suddenly changed the price to five quarters. Not to be too specific or anything. Not like I recommended Jones in daily fantasy last week on national TV or anything.
The biggest area to improve going forward? Limiting big plays in the passing game.
**Side note 1:** [Ziggy Ansah](http://www.nfl.com/player/ezekielansah/2539931/profile) is a difference maker.
**Side note 2:** ["Brand New Lover"](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWbj64Rwfvc) was DJ's song of choice. </content:power-ranking>
**Random thought:** [Blake Bortles](/player/blakebortles/2543477/profile) showed signs of being the QB the franchise was hoping for, but I still wish he used his legs even more. </content:power-ranking>
The offense? 3.9 yards per play. No more commentary needed. Or wanted, I bet.
