TOJ Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

0

Your NFL Power Rankings, three quarters of the way through the season. Please feel free to discuss my idiocy in great detail in the comment section or on theTwitter and Facebook page -

1. Green Bay Packers (12-0) - It is fair to say that they should go 16-0 at this point. It was unbelievable how quick they went down the field for that winning field goal on Sunday.

2. Baltimore Ravens (9-3) - If they could handle subpar competition, they’d be 12-0. Their three losses have come to Jacksonville, Seattle, and Tennessee.

3. New Orleans Saints (9-3) - I am vaulting them over San Francisco because of how dominant they looked the past two weeks against potential playoff teams in the NFC.

4. San Francisco 49ers (10-2) - They should roll to the number two seed.

5. Pittsburgh Steelers (9-3) - Looking like the number five seed unless the Ravens slip-up.

6. New England Patriots (9-3) - Don’t be surprised if they finish 13-3.

7. Houston Texans (9-3) - Their defense and running game is good enough to carry them to a AFC South title with T.J. Yates under center.

8. Denver Broncos (7-5) - I keep thinking the next week will be the one when Denver finally gets burnt in a close game but it hasn’t happened yet.

9. New York Jets (7-5) - Too high? Look at the 7-5 teams below them.

10. Oakland Raiders (7-5) - Was getting obliterated by the Dolphins an aberration or the sign of a late season meltdown?

11. Dallas Cowboys (7-5) - An absolutely brutal loss to Arizona, means the NFC East is going to be a dogfight.

12. New York Giants (6-6) - There is some pride in losing to Green Bay only by 3, but a loss to Dallas this weekend would be their fifth straight and could be a nail in the coffin to their season, then again a win puts them in the driver’s seat for the NFC East.

13. Atlanta Falcons (7-5) - It has been a disappointing season for Atlanta but if they beat the teams they should, they will end up in the playoffs.

14. Chicago Bears (7-5) - I put them below Atlanta out of anger for Brett Favre rumors starting again.

15. Cincinnati Bengals (7-5) - A humbling loss in Pittsburgh shows the injuries may be too much for this young team to overcome.

16. Tennessee Titans (7-5) - If Chris Johnson is really back, they could be very dangerous down the stretch.

17. Detroit Lions (7-5) - Undisciplined and dirty.

18. Miami Dolphins (4-8) - Imagine if they had won some of those close games early in the year.

19. Seattle Seahawks (5-7) - Sneakily not really that bad of a team.

20. Arizona Cardinals (5-7) - See above.

21. San Diego Chargers (5-7) - Philip Rivers looked like himself for the first time this season last night.

22. Kansas City Chiefs (5-7) - A good defense keeps them competitive, despite Tyler Palko.

23. Buffalo Bills (5-7) - It feels like a hundred years ago that they were the feel good story of the NFL.

24. Philadelphia Eagles (4-8) - A very different 4-8 than the Miami team they are facing this week.

25. Carolina Panthers (4-8) - They are going to give Atlanta everything they can handle this week.

26. Washington Redskins (4-8) - I guess you can’t win with Rex Grossman under center.

27. Cleveland Browns (4-8) - The most boring team in football?

28. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-9) - They shouldn’t be allowed on prime-time for another few years.

29. Tampa Bay Bucs (4-8) - What a disappointing year for the “youngry” Bucs.

30. Minnesota (2-10) - Well Percy Harvin is pretty good…

31. St. Louis Rams (2-10) - Maybe they are the most boring team in football.

32. Indianapolis Colts (0-12) - It is fair to say that they should go 0-16 at this point.
