Week 5 of the NFL season is in the bag and you can’t really say that there are too many huge surprises around the league. Have there been upsets? Sure there are. But no teams are severely underperforming or on the other hand, greatly exceeding their general expectations.

The Jaguars and Raiders stay at the bottom of the power rankings for obvious reasons. Rumors have started that former Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren flew to Oakland to interview for their head coaching opening. He admitted to visiting with the team and you can read more about that here.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos stay at the very top with their performances to date. There is a surprise team in our top three this week however. We won’t spoil that here, but you’ll be shocked when you see who it is.
