After Week 5's action is complete, experts across the Internet have once again ranked all 32 NFL teams, and the 1-4 Kansas City Chiefs have fallen further down the rung with their 9-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Chiefs average a ranking of No. 29 across the four rankings, and quarterback Matt Cassel gets especially beat up by the experts. CBS's ranking says "It's official: Matt Cassel isn't good," while ESPN's says "It appears the Brady Quinn era is upon us."

SB Nation's Joel Thorman gives Kansas City some love, saying "the way the Chiefs ran on the Ravens was impressive" after rushing for 214 yards.

At the top, the Houston Texans are sharing the spotlight with the Atlanta Falcons.

Thorman has the Texans at No. 1, saying, "This team looks straight dominant." Rankings from ESPN.com and CBSSports.com agree with Thorman, both looking forward to the Texans being tested against the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens.

Yahoo!'s Shutdown Corner blog has the Falcons on top, however, saying, "When you can go on the road and not play your best in the wind and rain, and you still come away with a win, you're probably pretty good."
