NFL Power Rankings Week 10: New team takes No. 1 spot

The San Francisco 49ers are the new No. 1 team on our NFL power rankings heading into Week 10.

We are officially to the midway point of the 2019 NFL season, where every team has played at least eight games. Some fan bases, like the Atlanta Falcons, wish the season was already complete.

The bye week did some good for the Falcons, though, as they moved up two spots in our Week 10 NFL power rankings. The Miami Dolphins beat the New York Jets on Sunday, which threw a wrench in the bottom five of our list and allowed the Falcons to move up to No. 28.

Atlanta is positioned on our list right where the team would be drafting if the season ended today -- fifth from the bottom or the top, depending on one perspective.

On the other end of the spectrum, the San Francisco 49ers usurped the New England Patriots at No. 1 after the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Patriots on Sunday Night Football, handing New England its first loss. The 49ers are the only undefeated team left in the NFL, making them the obvious choice for No. 1. They leapfrogged the New Orleans Saints, who were off and stayed at two on our list.

The Patriots didn't fall far, though, to No. 3 while the Ravens made one of the biggest jumps this week into the Top 5 to No. 4.

The Packers, Vikings and Colts joined the Patriots as Top 10 teams that lost in Week 9, but all of them remained in our Top 10 heading into Week 10.
