Here are SB Nation's Week 4 NFL Power Rankings. After pulling off their second consecutive victory, the Steelers move up to No. 4.

It was a little more difficult than we expected, but they got by the Colts.

Topping the Steelers are the Packers, Ravens and Saints. The Steelers leapfrogged the Patriots (who lost to the Bills this week) and the Jets. The Bills, by the way, are up at No. 7 after getting off to a 3-0 start.

In the rest of the AFC North, the 2-1 Browns are at No. 19 ("The Bills, Lions and Browns have combined for an 8-1 record this season. The year of the underdog may be upon us") and the 1-2 Bengals are at No. 25. The Steelers' next opponent, the 2-1 Texans, are at No. 10 after barely losing to the Saints in a shootout on Sunday. The Texans crushed the Colts in Week 1 and handled the Dolphins in Week 2.
