NFL Power Rankings Week 4: ESPN Drops Broncos To No. 26

If there's one thing that this week's assortment of NFL power rankings has told us, it's that the Denver Broncos aren't a good team. We've seen the results on the field, so this isn't terribly enlightening on the part of those who put out the rankings. But, hey, at least the Broncos aren't worse than a 0-3 team.

In ESPN's Week 4 NFL power rankings, the Broncos fell two spots from No. 24 to No. 26. The blurb doesn't mention Kyle Orton or Tim Tebow. It doesn't even try to say something about John Fox's call on fourth and goal in the fourth quarter. It's all about returning a player from injury:

A healthy Elvis Dumervil would help any defense in the NFL. Could he be ready for a trip to Lambeau?

Dumervil hurt his shoulder in practice before the first game of the season and barely played against the Raiders. He missed the last two weeks, but the Broncos are hopeful he can play at Lambeau Field this week. Though his return alone won't give the Broncos the victory.
