NFL Week 4 Power Rankings

There's a new No. 1 in the NFL power rankings and it's not who you would have expected it to be a few weeks ago.

1. Pittsburgh (9) – Who knew Charlie Batch would bring life to the Steelers' passing game? He'll get a much bigger test this week versus Baltimore.

2. Indianapolis (4) - Peyton Manning just keeps getting better with age. It's going to be a bad week to be a Jaguars fan.

3. New Orleans (1) – If Garrett Hartley could split the uprights the Saints might still be No. 1. [ Beware the Panthers this week, they are 9-0 ATS past 9 at New Orleans and the Saints are 0-9 ATS in their past 9 regular season games overall - best underdog odds on Carolina, visit Bovada ]

4. Green Bay (2) – Had the No. 1 spot in their sights before Monday's penalty-filled loss to Chicago.

5. Baltimore (5) – Joe Flacco to Anquan Boldin looks like a lethal tandem. Keep an eye on Ray Rice's knee, though, because that could be trouble. [ Plenty of trends point to an OVER bet here - best line for OVER bettors is 34, -110 at [custom:sb-sportsinteraction-textlink] ]

6. NY Jets (7) – Mark Sanchez has six touchdowns in his last two games. Who saw that coming after his awful start in Week 1? Speaking of awful, the Jets are 1-10 ATS their past 11 road games in October. Is this a good Bills bet at +5? Huge bonuses still available at Bovada.

7. New England (8) – Still need to get their defense in order to beat the league's elite.

8. Houston (3) – The Texans' offense was derailed against Dallas. Look for a rebound versus Oakland this week.

9. Cincinnati (10) – The Bengals have quietly won their last two games. Ochocino and Owens quiet? Really? Bengals have been dreadful ATS in October.

10. Atlanta (12) – The Falcons proved they're for real by taking down the Saints at home.

11. Chicago (16) – With the Giants, Panthers, and Seahawks coming up 6-0 is definitely possible in the Windy City.

12. Dallas (14) – The Cowboys finally delivered last week. Can they keep it going after their bye week?

13. Minnesota (11) – The ship hasn't been righted yet in Minnesota; they only beat a mistake-prone Detroit squad.

14. Kansas City (18) – The surprise of the season so far, as the Chiefs are headed for the bye undefeated.

15. San Diego (6) – The Chargers' annual early-season choke is on. They better hope their annual late-season revival also arrives on cue.

16. Philadelphia (17) – Michael Vick makes the Eagles dangerous again in the NFC East. McNabb comess home, where the Eagles have been reliable UNDER plays in October (8-2 past 10) - save money making that wager at {URL=http://affiliates.5dimes.com/tracking/Affiliate.asp?AffID=AF0002320&medi...}5DIMES.com{/URL}.

17. Miami (15) – If Chad Henne and Brandon Marshall are starting to click the Dolphins' offense should take a step forward.

18. Washington (13) – After a horrible loss to St. Louis, Donovan McNabb leads the Redskins back to Philadelphia.

19. Tennessee (21) – Chris Johnson gets all the headlines, but the Titans' defense is the one making waves right now.

20. Seattle (27) – If the Seahawks would show some consistency they might actually be a real threat. They have beaten the Rams 10 in a row, but many bettors are fading them.

21. Arizona (25) – A healthy Beanie Wells makes a pretty big difference. Cards have covered 7 straight October spreads.

22. San Francisco (19) – It will take more than changing offensive coordinators to fix the problems in San Francisco.

23. Detroit (22) – The toe injury to Jahvid Best couldn't have come at a worse time.

24. NY Giants (20) – Eli Manning has thrown nearly half as many interceptions as he did all last season in the first three games. Ouch.

25. St. Louis (29) – The Rams won a game? That Sam Bradford kid might be pretty good after all.

26. Oakland (24) – How many losses before Al Davis starts looking for Tom Cable's replacement?

27. Tampa Bay (23) – Received a real wake-up call last week against Pittsburgh. Things don't get much easier with Cincinnati and New Orleans coming up after their bye week.

28. Denver (27) – Will the possible return of Knowshon Moreno lead to something that at least resembles a balanced offense in Denver?

29. Jacksonville (28) – Maurice Jones-Drew has yet to rush for 100 yards this season. They call that losing in Jacksonville.

30. Cleveland (30) – At least the Peyton Hillis for Brady Quinn trade is looking pretty good.

31. Carolina (31) – The Panthers have the worst scoring offense in the NFL. But they are 9-0 ATS in 9 trips to New Orleans, a team that hasn't covered a regular season point spread since last Nov. 30. [ Panthers best odds could be at Bovada ]

32. Buffalo (32) – Releasing Trent Edwards is the first step back to the top for Buffalo, right?
