Because doing a full, 32-team list of power rankings is too much work for a Monday afternoon, I will rank the top 11 teams in the NFL after each exciting football Sunday (that's where the "first and 10" comes in).
Here are my rankings heading into the "MNF" game between NFC West powerhouses Seattle and St. Louis:
4. Patriots: They have won five straight games, but their porous pass defense looks like it could be a fatal flaw.
6. Texans: The resilient Texans, who have won seven straight games, are playoff-bound for the first time ever.
8. 49ers: They clinched their division, but they have lost two of three and could miss out on the No. 2 seed.
11. Lions: Can Detroit hang on down the stretch and make the postseason for the first time since 1999?
Biggest riser (not on this list): The Cardinals stretched their win streak to three by knocking off the 49ers.
Biggest fall (not on this list): I guess the Colts should have this spot on lockdown until they finally win a game.
