The New England Patriots have moved up in the world on many of the most viewed power rankings on the world wide web after winning six straight games and moving to 9-3 on the season. The Pats are ranked second in the minds of the folks at ProFootballTalk and Pro Football Weekly and third with ESPN and NFL.com. The Atlanta Falcons have looked vulnerable lately with the inconsistent play of Matt Ryan and that seems to have pushed them below New England in quite a few people's opinion.
These rankings could be seeing quite a shake-up after this upcoming Monday, however, as the Patriots will face off in colossal AFC clash with the consensus No. 1 ranked Houston Texans. If the Pats can make it seven in a row by defeating the agreed upon top team in the NFL, we could be seeing them headlining most of these lists come next Tuesday.
