Now that Week 4 of the 2015 NFL regular season is over, it's time to see where all 32 teams rank. For reference purposes, here is a link to last week's NFL Power Rankings.

The Philadelphia Eagles lost a must-win game.

BLG's WEEK 5 POWER RANKINGS

1) New England Patriots (Last Week: 1) - The Patriots had an early bye week this year. They're rested up and ready to continue dominating, probably. Up next for them is Tom Brady versus Brandon Weeden.

2) Green Bay Packers (LW: 2) - Aaron Rodgers career red zone stats: 61.8% completion, 169 touchdowns, six interceptions. Having an awesome quarterback is always nice.

3) Denver Broncos (LW: 3) - Denver's defense continues to look really good. Meanwhile, Peyton Manning ranks 28th overall in passer rating.

4) Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 4) - This Bengals team certainly looks capable of winning a playoff game. Maybe Marv Lewis will finally get over the hump?

5) Atlanta Falcons (LW: 7) - Atlanta's offense is certainly putting up a lot of points. The Falcons own the NFL's third best point differential.

6) Arizona Cardinals (LW: 5) - Arizona still owns the best point differential in the NFL despite losing. The next closest team is 26 points away.

7) Seattle Seahawks (LW: 6) - The Seahawks seriously need to pay Kam Chancellor. He's pretty good. They also need to pay that referee who didn't rule illegal batting in the end zone, which could have cost them their win on Monday Night Football.

8) Carolina Panthers (LW: 11) - I am not a huge believer in this Panthers team. They've had a really easy path to 4-0 with wins over the Jaguars, Texans, Saints (without Drew Brees), and now Buccaneers. But they keep winning, so I have to keep moving them up.

9) New York Jets (LW: 13) - The Jets beat Miami so badly in London that it caused Miami to fire their coach.

10) Buffalo Bills (LW: 8) - First time all season where the Bills haven't looked so impressive. It was surprising to see Buffalo lose at home like that.

11) Minnesota Vikings (LW: 10) - You could do worse than losing a close game in Denver against the Broncos' tough defense.

12) Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 9) - The Steelers actually gave up a sixth round pick for Josh Scobee, who cost them a win against the Ravens. Pittsburgh has a new kicker now, but they really need Ben Roethlisberger to get back.

13) San Diego Chargers (LW: 16) - The Bolts can thank the Browns for being the Browns for their win over the Browns.

14) St. Louis Rams (LW: 21) - Todd Gurley is a beast. He ran for more than 100 yards ... in the fourth quarter alone!

15) New York Giants (LW: 24) - The Giants have won two games in a row. Going into Buffalo and coming out with a convincing win was unexpected.

16) Baltimore Ravens (LW: 19) - Justin Tucker is a stud. Baltimore's kicker kept their season alive.

17) Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 12) - Andy Reid's Chiefs are on a three game losing streak. Alex Smith somehow managed to pass for 386 yards with no touchdowns.

18) Indianapolis Colts (LW: 18) - It sure wasn't pretty, but the Colts managed to get by the Jaguars without Andrew Luck.

19) Dallas Cowboys (LW: 14) - Brandon Weeden is 0-3 as a starter with the Cowboys and the losses could continue to pile up. The Cowboys play the Patriots next.

20) Oakland Raiders (LW: 15) - Just when it looked like the Raiders might be good, they lost to a pretty bad Bears team.

21) Washington Redskins (LW: 27) - Washington reached .500 with a close win over a division rival.

22) New Orleans Saints (LW: 25) - New Orleans desperately needed a win to stay alive and they got one at home in overtime.

23) Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 17) - Surprise: Philadelphia's offense is still pretty bad. Sam Bradford did show some positive signs (for once) in the Eagles' close road loss, but this team is just bad overall.

24) Houston Texans (LW: 20) - Having J.J. Watt doesn't really matter when you don't have a quarterback.

25) Detroit Lions (LW: 23) - The Lions are the NFL's only winless team at 0-4. Despite this, they are only seventh worst in point differential. They also probably should have beaten Seattle if the referee makes the right call and throws a flag for illegal batting. Rough break for Detroit.

26) Cleveland Browns (LW: 26) - Just when it looked like the Browns were going to win, they found a way to lose in the most Browns way possible.

27) Miami Dolphins (LW: 22) - Joe Philbin is the first NFL head coach to be fired this season. Here's a pretty crazy story that makes you wonder why he wasn't fired sooner.

28) Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 29) - The Gus Bus almost managed to sneak out of Indianapolis with a win but they couldn't beat 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck.

29) Tennessee Titans (LW: 30) - Former Eagles quarterback Marcus Mariota won the NFL Rookie of the Month award for September. The Titans had an early bye.

30) Chicago Bears (LW: 32) - Jay Cutler and the Bears are on the board with a win.

31) San Francisco 49ers (LW: 28) - The Niners managed to put up only three points at home. They're averaging a mere 12 points scored per game and own the NFL's worst point differential.

32) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 31) - Jameis Winston threw four interceptions in Tampa Bay's loss. The Buccaneers are going nowhere fast.
