Our weekly look around the web for how the Broncos rank in NFL Power Rankings.

This should be fun. Peyton's Broncos, fresh off a 35-point performance against the Chargers, head to Foxborough, where Brady's Pats just dropped 51 points on the Bears. Tackling optional.

Thoughts: This will be a common theme amongst all the Power Rankings. The Broncos are number one, and deserve to on top after defeating the San Francisco 49ers and San Diego Chargers in a four day span. ESPN ranks Arizona 2nd, New England 3rd, Dallas, 4th and Philly 5th.

Record 6-1. Yet another in a growing stream of complete games by the Denver Broncos has be hoping against hope that the streak continues at least for one more game. Tom Brady is playing like a possessed madman, but then again, so is Peyton Manning. A win on the road in New England will go a long way in convincing me this team is miles ahead of the one that nearly ran the table in 2013. Next Sunday, I want to witness ...

Thoughts: I want perfection too Timmy! 1

Judging by last Thursday night's effort, that run defense sure looks like it's playoff-ready.

Side note: Watched "Sound FX" footage of Peyton Manning breaking Brett Favre's touchdown record. Good stuff. What stuck with me the most, though, was seeing Manning take the time to sit with and calm down right tackle Paul Cornick, who was making his first career start. That sort of thing is a big reason this team's playing so well.

The Broncos were dominant once again with an impressive blowout win over the Chargers, and right now Denver looks like a runaway train in the AFC. Denver's offensive attack is as effective as ever. Peyton Manning has integrated Emmanuel Sanders into his already loaded arsenal of weapons. At this point, it's possible that Sanders, who caught three touchdown passes on Thursday night, was the best free agent acquisition in the NFL this past offseason, at least on the offensive side of the ball -- and that's paying dividends for Denver.

Of course, the Broncos' defense is no slouch either, and it's proving to be one of the toughest groups in the NFL this year. Denver is strikingly balanced in all three phases. It's widening the gap from every other team on our power rankings.

Thoughts: The Raiders are ranked 32nd...again. LOL

And the beat goes on. The offense is clicking, but it's the improved defense that is opening eyes.

Thoughts: The defense is pretty awesome. The Raiders are 32nd...still

Not only are the Broncos the most complete team in the NFL, they are simply a better team than they were in 2013. John Elway’s aggressive free agency approach is paying off as DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib have played up to their contracts.

Thoughts: Elway won the offseason again this year, and it's paying off in a big way!
