As usual, here's our glance at NFL power rankings from around the nation. Steelers fans will probably have to hold their noses a bit here, as the Patriots' win over Pittsburgh vaults them to the top. The Packers, Jets and Falcons do well in a lot of these as well, as the Steelers drop a few spots. Also topping the Steelers in the SB Nation rankings are the Eagles, Colts and Ravens. Two games against the Raiders (No. 13) and the Bills (No. 28) could help the Steelers, although the matchup against Oakland isn't a gimme - the Raiders lead an admittedly weak AFC West division and have scored 47 more points than they've allowed.
SB Nation: 8 (last week: 4).
The Steelers bombed against the Patriots in what was supposed to be one of the best games of the year. They've got themselves a battle in the AFC North.
ESPN: 5 (last week: 2).
Steelers are just 1-2 in their last three games.
FanHouse: 8 (last week: 5).
Sunday night, the Steelers couldn't block, couldn't generate a pass rush, couldn't cover anyone and couldn't make a kick. That is, obviously, not a great combination. A visit from Oakland Sunday either will help the Steelers turn things back around or push their season to the brink of falling apart.
