After a steady diet of changes throughout the first half of the NFL season, some stability finally hit the TSN.ca NFL Power Rankings, with the top five teams remaining unchanged from last week.

The Houston Texans continue at the top of the board, ahead of the New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers.

Movement starts at the sixth spot, with the Denver Broncos moving up from eight.

A ridiculous day from Tampa Bay's Muscle Hamster, Doug Martin, helped the Bucs climb from 15 to 11 and the Chargers' easy win over Kansas City lifted them from 19 to 15. Indianapolis rose from 21 to 17 after downing Miami and the Carolina Panthers made a move from 29 to 23 after ending a string of close losses with a win at Washington.

As a natural counter, the Redskins were on of the team's falling this week, dropping from 14 to 18, while the Minnesota Vikings' loss at Seattle, coupled with the potential loss of wide receiver Percy Harvin to an ankle injury, resulted in a fall from 11 to 16.

The Oakland Raiders dropped from 17 to 21, in part because of their 42-32 loss at home against Tampa Bay, but the ranking also reflects their backfield injuries, with Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson both suffering ankle injuries against the Buccaneers.
