NFL AP Poll: Week 5

Not much change in the poll, as four of the top 5 teams in the NFL had a bye last weekend.

1.  Seattle Seahawks:  2-1
2.  Cincinnati Bengals:  3-0
3.  Denver Broncos:  2-1
4.  St. Louis Football Cardinals:  3-0
5.  San Diego Chargers:  3-1
6.  Baltimore Ravens:  3-1
7.  Detroit Lions:  3-1
8.  Philadelphia Eagles:  3-1
9.  San Francisco 49ers:  2-2
10.  Indianapolis Colts:  2-2

The Dolphins (2-2) move up from 26th to 22d; the Redskins (1-3) fall from 23d to 28th.

The Game of the Week is probably the Sunday Night game, with the high-flying Bengals trying to show that, yes, the long reign of the # 13 Patriots is finally over.  If the Pats can't defend their home turf -- after being blown out by Kansas City on Monday night -- we may finally be into a new era.  But on paper, the game of the week is in Denver, where the # 3 Peytons will host the # 4 Football Cardinals.  There's also a game of both current and historical interest in Hoosier-land, where the # 10 Colts host # 6 Baltimore.
