After Week 5's action is complete, experts across the Internet have once again ranked all 32 NFL teams, and the Saint Louis Rams are around the middle of the league with all rankings considered.

The experts at CBSSports.com moved the Rams up four spots to No. 14 after their 17-3 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. After sacking Kevin Kolb nine times, CBS gives the Rams its highest ranking of the group by saying, "Jeff Fisher has that defense playing some good football."

SB Nation's own Joel Thorman has the Rams at No. 20. While this is the lowest ranking of the group, Thorman exults in the Rams win with the repeated exclamation "The Rams are over .500!"

ESPN.com's rankings moved Saint Louis up a spot No. 18, while Yahoo!'s Shutdown Corner moved the Rams up four spots for a No. 17 rank, which is also the average rank between the four lists.

The Houston Texans are on top of the rankings with the Atlanta Falcons sharing the spotlight. Thorman has the Texans at no. 1, saying, "This team looks straight dominant." Yahoo!'s Shutdown Corner 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."
