At the quarter pole of the NFL season, one team is simply better than rest. The Los Angeles Rams are the class of the league on both offense and defense, but it's the group just behind them that creates an interesting argument. 


With the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles falling out of the Top 5 following a 26-23 OT loss at the Tennessee Titans, they're the only casualty at the top this week.


Here are TheDuel.com's top 5 NFL teams heading into Week 5.

5. Baltimore Ravens (3-1) >> Last Week: NA

The Baltimore Ravens are the newest addition to this list. Coming off a dominant win in Pittsburgh over the Steelers, the Ravens look to be one of the few complete teams in the division. Averaging more than 30 points per game while giving up just over 16, the Ravens have all the pieces to make a run in the AFC.

4. New Orleans Saints (3-1) >> Last Week: 5

After coming in at No. 5 last week, the Saints slide up one spot after their dominant win on the road at MetLife Stadium over the New York Giants. The Saints are third in the league in scoring and get Mark Ingram back to compliment fantasy football's top running back, Alvin Kamara. Sean Payton's offense should keep adding wrinkles in the coming weeks, giving them a good shot at a 4-1 record heading into their Week 6 bye.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-1) >> Last Week: 4

With or without Leonard Fournette, it doesn't seem to matter for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Their defense carries their offense, and it's been proven that defense wins championships. Even with Fournette likely to miss at least another two games, backup running backs T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant proved to be serviceable during his previous absence. This week's showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs should say a lot about both teams.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (4-0) >> Last Week: 2

After a come-from-behind win over the Denver Broncos on Monday night, the aforementioned Chiefs remain at No. 2. Truth is, even with a close loss, they'd likely still be ranked second this week. The Chiefs offense is so powerful that it continues to hide the warts of their defense, and, until they lose, they'll remain a threat to the No. 1 spot.

1. Los Angeles Rams (4-0) >> Last Week:1

At the quarter pole of the NFL season, the Los Angeles Rams are head and shoulders above the rest. With four dominant wins, the Rams have outscored their opponents, 140-67. Now comes three straight road games -- at Seattle, Denver and San Fransisco. That should be a good litmus test for the top team in football right now.
