NFL power rankings, Week 4: Back in the right direction

Following a win on the road, the Detroit Lions saw a small jump in most power rankings this week.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

As is usually the case after a win, the Detroit Lions jumped up a bit in this week's NFL power rankings. Thanks to their first road win ever at Washington, the Lions went up two spots on ESPN and Pro Football Talk and three spots on CBS Sports and FOX Sports. Only SB Nation kept them in the same spot, although that's partly because the Lions didn't drop much in those particular rankings after losing in Week 2. Take a look:

The Chicago Bears, the Lions' opponent this week, are ranked fourth (SB Nation), fourth (ESPN), seventh (CBS Sports), fourth (FOX Sports) and sixth (Pro Football Talk). I'm surprised they aren't consistently higher considering they are 3-0, but I guess a lot of people aren't believers in the Bears just yet. Hopefully the Lions will prove those people right in Week 4.
