NFL Power Rankings: Broncos move up

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Broncos had a good Monday night, and the Week 7 power rankings reflect it accordingly.

The Denver Broncos scored 35 straight points Monday night to come back against the San Diego Chargers, and this week's NFL power rankings across the Web took note. The Broncos jumped up eight spots to No. 11 in the Week 7 power rankings here at SB Nation.

SB Nation NFL editor Joel Thorman didn't say much on the Broncos:

11. Denver Broncos (LW: 19, 3-3): 35 unanswered points is impressive. Really impressive.

CBSsports.com too got a kick out of the Broncos' big night, shooting them from No. 17 last week to No. 10. From CBSsports.com's Pete Prisco in their Week 7 power rankings:

That 24-point comeback was special Monday night. The season was going bad if that didn't happen. P.S.: Peyton Manning can still play.

ESPN.com treated Peyton Manning and the Broncos with a bit more reserve, boosting Denver in its power rankings up to No. 12.

The Broncos get a pass this Sunday against the fledgeling New Orleans Saints before back-to-back road games against the Cincinnati Bengals and the Carolina Panthers.
