Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings; a changing of the guard at the top after Week 4 (Shutdown Corner)

Seattle's Week 4 win was impressive. To pitch a second-half shutout, come back from a 20-3 halftime deficit and beat a very good team like Houston shows the Seahawks can thrive in adverse conditions. It's hard to win a Super Bowl without winning some of those games. The Broncos are avoiding that situation by blowing everyone out. It's rare to see a NFL team steamroll through most of its schedule. The 2007 Patriots were the most dominant team of the past 20 years or so, and the Broncos have that same look through the first month. It's not easy to blow out a NFL team, and Denver has done it four times in a row. That's the reason the Broncos move up one spot to the top of the power rankings this week. The Broncos' schedule hasn't been too rough so far, but that will be a theme for them this season. Looking at the Broncos schedule , it's very easy to see them going into a game at New England on Nov. 24 still undefeated. Seattle isn't far behind Denver. If someone can get the Broncos into a competitive game, we'll see if they handle adversity as well as the Seahawks have this season. However, that moment might not happen for a while. Here are the rest of the power rankings:
