The Week 5 NFL power rankings have arrived, and while it is too early to hit the panic button, some teams better begin thinking about approaching it. The Los Angeles Rams are the best team in football, that’s pretty obvious. The Kansas City Chiefs are solid too, but they will be tested tonight in Denver. But, how about the New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, and the Tennessee Titans? Don’t sleep on them!

Middle of the road teams are tough

While it is always a piece of cake to talk about the three or four best teams in the league, there are several middle-of-the-road teams that are starting to look pretty good as October approaches.

First of all, how about those Tennessee Titans? The Titans are on a three-game winning streak following their opening day loss to at Miami. And oh-by-way, their last two wins came against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles.

According to a CBS Sports report, Tennessee trailed Philadelphia by 14 points in the third quarter before rallying in the final period to send the game into overtime. Things were even more thrilling in OT as the Titans won the game when QB Marcus Mariota hit Corey Davis with a 10-yard touchdown pass with five seconds remaining in overtime. The win gave the Titans a 3-1 mark, their best start since 2013.

Two other teams that are raising some early eyebrows are the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints.

Saints, Bears improvements

Drew Brees just continues to defy time as he has his Saints off to a 3-1 start, and is looking mighty impressive in doing so. Brees has passed the 1,300-yard mark already and the Saints are averaging nearly 35 points per game. The Saints look like they are on a mission to prove (barring one pass) that they should have been in the NFC title game last January, and not the Minnesota Vikings.

How about those Chicago Bears? The momentum and attitude this team picked up after trading for Khalil Mack has been incredible. Mack has been everywhere on defense for Chicago and smashing anyone who gets in his way. The 3-1 Bears have a 1.5 game lead on the Vikings and Packers, and a two-game lead over the Detroit Lions.

The losers of Week 4?

The NY Jets, Tampa Bay Bucs and Arizona Cardinals. For the Jets and Bucs, the season started with so much promise. Now they have quickly fallen to below the middle of the pack of the teams. As for the Cardinals, it already looks like "wait until next season" as they have lost their fourth game in a row, dropping them to 0-4 on the season.
