There's another new number one team in the NFL Power Rankings, as the Chicago Bears have pulled past the idle Atlanta Falcons at the top of the board.

Chicago has allowed a league-low 13.0 points and 71.0 rushing yards per game, so even though Monday night's win against Detroit wasn't necessarily a thing of beauty, it was enough for the Bears to take over the top ranking.

Atlanta was also passed by the Houston Texans, coming off their blowout win against the Baltimore Ravens.

The New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers round out the top seven, after which there is a bit of a gap before the Baltimore Ravens at eight.

Starting to get on track after an 0-4 start, the New Orleans Saints led the climbers this week, going from 23 to 18.
