NFL Power Rankings, Week 5: 49ers vault back into top five, send Rams tumbling out of top 10

NFL Power Rankings, Week 5: 49ers vault back into top five, send Rams tumbling out of top 10

Parity remains a calling card of the NFL as we hit the quarter point of the regular season.

The league currently has one unbeaten team (Eagles), one winless squad (Texans), seven teams at 3-1, seven more at 1-3 and a whopping 15 squads at 2-2 -- a long list of .500 outfits that includes both Super Bowl participants of a season ago.

This makes for a dense fog in the land of the NFL Power Rankings.

Time to throw up the high beams and see our way through this.

Wait, we're supposed to turn the headlights off? You're messing with me. Forget it.

Let's buckle up and get to work.
