If it's Tuesday, it must be time for the newest Times NFL power rankings, and there is a big shakeup this week.

Houston and Atlanta are no longer first and second, being replaced by Denver and New England.

There are three new teams in the top 10, the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins. That means, of course, that three teams fell out of the top 10: the Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers.
