The Cowboys are 17th in the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings

Following an embarrassing home loss Monday night to the Chicago Bears, the Dallas Cowboys (2-2) dropped three spots to No. 17 in the SB Nation NFL Power Rankings for Week 5.

NFL editor Joel Thorman didn't have much to say about America's Team this week, only that the ever-GIF-able Rob Ryan probably wouldn't be pleased.

CBS Sports also has the Cowboys at No. 17 this week. Pete Prisco writes about Tony Romo following his five-interception performance Monday night:

"It's time to start the Tomy Romo bashing again. Thing is, he didn't get much help against the Bears."

Dallas got slightly more love in ESPN's Power Rankings, coming in at No. 15, a three-spot drop from last week. Dan Graziano writes:

"No fun sitting on that Monday night loss through a bye week. The Cowboys' offense is loaded with issues right now."

The Cowboys have a bye week in Week 5, time enough to either stew on a bad loss or turn the ship around, depending on your point of view.
