NFL Week 10 Power Rankings: Parity lovers rejoice as six teams in top 10 get knocked off while Titans impress

Six of the teams in the top 10 of my Power Rankings lost this past week. Among those losses:

One coach told me this summer that there might be something to the idea that getting hot down the stretch is more important than perhaps winning the division.
