The St. Louis Rams dropped in this week's SB Nation power rankings, falling to No. 24 and onto the precipice being among the dreaded bottom five.

The St. Louis Rams dropped to No. 25 in the Week 7 SB Nation power rankings after a 17-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

SB Nation NFL editor Joel Thorman was brief in his Rams' debriefing in this week's power rankings:

25. St. Louis Rams (LW: 20. 3-3): Back to .500. The over .500 party can only last so long.

The Rams had emerged, brief though it was, one game over. 500 after alternating losses and wins the first four weeks of the season. St. Louis beat the Arizona Cardinals 17-3 in Week 6 to elevate its record to 3-2, and its SB Nation power ranking to No. 20, but the loss to Miami brought them back to the pack.

The folks at CBSsports.com ranked the Rams No. 16 in their Week 7 power rankings, one spot below the surging Dolphins that beat them Sunday.

Almost perfectly in the middle is ESPN.com, which has put the Rams No. 20 in its power rankings for Week 7.

The Rams will have a chance to prove which outlet has them pegged the best over the next three weeks. They play at home against the Green Bay Packers, travel to London to play the New England Patriots, and on the road against the San Francisco 49ers.
