I can't really justify the Donks being ranked ahead of the Texans, despite their loss to NE. They have wins over Denver, Balt, and Chicago.
The power rankings aren't meant to be season-encompassing. They're rankings of how each team is playing right now. The people coming up with them don't really care what happened 11 weeks ago, they care what happened this week. And this week, the Texans and Falcons both fell on their faces.
