Week 14 power rankings

Brady Getty Images

1. Patriots (five first-place votes):  Finally, the rest of the PFT power rankings poll agrees with the boss.  Nice to see you guys finally come around.

2. Broncos:  Before any of you scream that the Broncos shouldn’t be No. 2, tell me who else should be.

3. Texans:  If they win the next three games, the Texans will secure the right to eventually lose in the postseason at home.

4. Falcons:  “The worst 11-2 team in NFL history” is still 11-2.

5. 49ers:  It’s good they’re playing a playoff team on the road this weekend.  The Niners could end up playing a playoff team on the road in the first round of the playoffs.

6. Packers:  They’re getting healthy and they’ve found a running game, just in time for the postseason.

7. Seahawks:  Unlike the 2005 team that made it to the Super Bowl, this team can win big games away from Seattle.

8. Giants:  Tom Coughlin should be in the doghouse for not letting David Wilson out of the doghouse sooner.

9. Ravens:  If Cam Cameron’s offense was better, maybe the Ravens defense wouldn’t have blown an eight-point lead to a rookie backup quarterback.

10. Redskins:  George McFly thinks this could be a team of density.

11. Colts:  Good news?  They need one win in three games to get to playoffs.  Bad news?  They play the Texans twice.  Best news?  They play the Chiefs in the other game.

12. Cowboys:  Like the Chiefs a week ago, the organization has performed admirably under difficult circumstances.

13. Bengals:  Beating one NFC East team at home sparked a great run.  Losing to another could grease the skids.

14. Steelers:  It’s good to see they’ve embarked on another late season effort to “unleash hell.”

15. Bears:  G.M. Phil Emery is making a different kind of list than Santa’s.

16. Vikings:  Some teams run to set up the pass.  Others pass to set up the run.  The Vikings run to screw up the pass.

17. Rams:  This team is going to end up far closer to a postseason berth than anyone ever would have imagined.

18. Saints:  Every team that makes it to the playoffs in the NFC should be very glad that the Saints won’t.

19. Buccaneers:  What could have been a special season is still pretty good.

20. Panthers:  Superman Returns.  Hopefully he’ll stay a little longer this time.

21. Browns:  If they run the table, it’ll be impossible to run Pat Shurmur out of town.

22. Dolphins:  The team is better, but there’s still no sizzle in South Florida.

23. Bills:  C.J. Spiller wants more touches.  Perhaps with another team.

24. Jets:  Immediately after Stephen Hill injured his knee, Rex Ryan acted like Jerry Seinfeld when he was dating the woman who cried when she dropped her frankfurter.

25. Chargers:  After that win over the Steelers, owner Dean Spanos gave coach Norv Turner a game ball.  I think those are called “parting gifts.”

26.  Eagles:  So will the “Keep Andy” signs show up on Thursday night, now that they’ve beaten the Bucs?

27. Titans:  Bud Adams will be signing the pink slips by dipping his middle fingers in ink.

28. Lions:  When all you have left to play for is getting the single-season receiving yardage record for Calvin Johnson, you might be a redneck.  Or at least a crappy team.

29. Cardinals: On my ballot, they were No. 58.

30. Chiefs:  If they had gotten some points when up 7-0 and on the brink of the end zone, the outcome in Cleveland could have been different.

31. Raiders:  Commissioner Roger Goodell says Oakland needs a new stadium.  Oakland says it needs a new team.

32. Jaguars:  Tim Tebow says the last shall be first.  As long as the last avoids the temptation to acquire Tim Tebow, that could possibly happen.

    Colts can beat the Texans, don’t count them out. Especially if the same Texans show up for either of the two upcoming games against the Colts, that showed up last night against the Pats.

  2. logicalvoicesays says: Dec 11, 2012 10:48 AM

    Tremendous error I noticed. You have the Falcons and Redskins mixed up because clearly the Redskins are the hottest and best team in the NFC. God will not be amused when he looks over this.

  3. atwatercrushesokoye says: Dec 11, 2012 10:48 AM

    The Falcons aren’t the worst 10-2 in history, mainly cause they were never 10-2 this year, they were 11-1 and now 11-2.

    Go Broncos!

  4. bosfaninva says: Dec 11, 2012 10:49 AM

    Hilarious #3. The same can also be said for the Falcons.

    Those teams just can’t pass the Eye Test.

  10. shogunassasin30 says: Dec 11, 2012 11:02 AM

    Why would anyone trip over Denver being ranked second. It’s become fairly clear that them and New England are the best teams in a league full of mediocrity. Non Coincidentally, they have the best quarterbacks…

  13. 8to80texansblog says: Dec 11, 2012 11:06 AM

    Well since the Texans beat the Broncos… not sure how they are ranked ahead of the Texans… with a worse record…

    Florio has been a Texan hater all year. Picked the Titans to win the AFC South, rarely picked the Texans #1 even though the rest of his staff did. I agree 100% that the Pats are #1 right now… Texans don’t even have to be #2, but to put the Broncos over the Texans… just stupid.

  14. klunge says: Dec 11, 2012 11:07 AM

    I don’t get all this crazy overreaction that “the Packers have found a running game!” They ran well at home, in 25-degree snowing/sleeting weather, against the floundering Lions. Ryan Lindley threw for 312yds a couple weeks ago, does anyone think the Cards have finally found their passing game? Maybe hold off on the snap judgments.

  15. wludford says: Dec 11, 2012 11:09 AM

    Actually the Vikings (or Ponder anyway) screw-up when they pass.

  16. baxman89 says: Dec 11, 2012 11:12 AM

    I know its fun to hate on the Jets but they are in better poaii than at least five teams ranked ahead of them…

  17. fredsingleton says: Dec 11, 2012 11:12 AM

    Besides the top 3 teams (Texans, Broncos, Patriots) there really isn’t another contender in the AFC. NFC looks strong though.

    I expect Patriots and Broncos in AFC Championship with Giants and 49ers in the NFC.

    Patriots vs 49ers in Superbowl

    Patriots win Superbowl. No, I’m not a fan of any of these teams.

    The Seahawks at #7 is about right. They’ll surprise a lot of people, I think.

  21. fargovikesfan says: Dec 11, 2012 11:20 AM

    The Vikings don’t run to screw up the pass, they run to keep the pass from screwing up.

    Roger Goodall was spotted at Robert Krafts house this morning rotating the tires on all his cars and asking if there’s any evidence he can destroy for him.

  23. EJ says: Dec 11, 2012 11:31 AM

    It will be a surprising AFC Championship game:

    Patriots vs Colts

    A not so surprising NFC Championship game:

    49ers vs Packers

    A lopsided Superbowl:

    Patriots 35-49ers 14

    Fortunately, It shows that the AFC East is still the toughest Division in the NFL. Unfortunately, Tom Brady will get another ring.

  24. bigbrad184 says: Dec 11, 2012 11:33 AM

    7. Seahawks: Unlike the 2005 team that made it to the Super Bowl, this team can win big games away from Seattle.

    Alright one last one just to really prove how stupid this comment is. The 2012 Seahawks are 2-5 on the road and likely to move to 3-5 if they beat the Bills this weekend. Th3 2005 Seahawks were 5-3 on the road. Again, an absolutely ridiculous statement that is either careless, stupid, or both (I vote for the last one).

  25. Nevis says: Dec 11, 2012 11:34 AM

    Actually the Seahawks CAN’T win big games away from Seattle. They need the #2 seed more than anyone else in the NFC.

    Too bad they can’t have replacement refs on hand to make sure they get more free Ws.

  26. EJ says: Dec 11, 2012 11:35 AM

    CJ Spiller loves the team he is playing for. What he doesn’t care for is Chan Gailey and his non belief that Spiller can carry the rock 25+ times a game. CJ knows that as soon as Gailey is out of the picture, that he will start carrying the team on his back. No worries.

  27. rjg427 says: Dec 11, 2012 11:43 AM

    Funny how both the packers and 49ers are above the giants..giants beat both teams, and the 49ers could beat the Rams or the Vikings this year at all…Just saying

  28. rjg427 says: Dec 11, 2012 11:43 AM

    I meant to say COULDNT beat the Rams or Vikings this year at all

  29. jetropolitans says: Dec 11, 2012 11:45 AM

    how are the cardinals not automatically in last place??

  30. 1nationraidernation says: Dec 11, 2012 11:48 AM

    maybe it’s just me, but it seems that this years teams are not as good of years past….I mean could this Patriots team, beat any of the other Patriots teams the past 10 years. (excluding the year Brady got hurt) . This year Packers team would have gotten blown off the field by last years Packers team etc….what has happened?

  31. baxman89 says: Dec 11, 2012 11:49 AM

    Meant positioned* by the way. Anyhow, while I’m a fan of the Texan’s style, I feel theyre ranked a tad too high. They’ve played into overtime against the likes of the Lions and Jaguara and then got whomped by the Patriots. Housten is built for January but they have got to get it together.

  32. jtylert says: Dec 11, 2012 11:52 AM

    With this most recent loss, the Cardinals’ dreams of bowl eligibility are looking very slim.

  33. usher716 says: Dec 11, 2012 11:56 AM

    FYI the Seahawks have only won a single road game this year. I think the Bills should be #21 ahead of the teams they’ve already defeated even more so after they beat Miami again (probably their only win left on the season).

  34. rhodeislandpatriotsfan says: Dec 11, 2012 12:02 PM

    Regardless of their regular season records, the Giants are top five, and the Falcons are NOT. I think the Giants, unlike the Falcons, can go toe to toe with and beat anyone, including the Patriots.

  35. rjguerra says: Dec 11, 2012 12:02 PM

    Pretty sure there’s going to be a lot of upset Texans fans. 84 points allowed in two prime time games. Just sayin.

    ———-
    They played in what week 3 and the Broncos had a new off. System and Def. system and new QB. They have gotten better as the year has gone on. The Texans have been blown out by the Pack and the Pats and almost lost to the Jags and got a gift from the Lions dumbass head coach. There is no doubt the Broncos are a better team NOW than the texans. Unless your a blind Texan.

  37. richwizl says: Dec 11, 2012 12:04 PM

    If the NFC is supposedly so much superior, then why are the top 3 ranked teams from the AFC? Also, the worst team in the league is in the NFC (Arizona). It’s all perception, people.

  38. contraisloosebuthole says: Dec 11, 2012 12:06 PM

    Everyone is delusional if they think the AFC can stand up to the NFC. There is no way anyone from the AFC should be in the top three. This is old news but did everyone get to see Florio blow it on national television (Sunday obviously) when he could not remember the name of the cowboy that passed away (Jerry Reese).

  39. mikea311 says: Dec 11, 2012 12:09 PM

    I am so sick of the David Wilson doghouse comments. He was never in the doghouse. He’s been the KR the entire year and was buried on the depth chart at RB behind Bradshaw and Brown who were both playing great.

  40. Grulks says: Dec 11, 2012 12:13 PM

    Dallas and Skins placement are both wrong.

    Dallas is entirely too inconsistent. And depleted on defense.

    Skins are getting a lot of bounces go their way, which happens. RG3 is pretty good, but they are currently using him primarily in a triple read option type offense. There is NOTHING wrong with that, but I personally can’t consider that type of QB to be elite (a top 10 team). Eventually, defenses figure out a way to contain you. It happened with Cam, it happened with Tebow, it will happen with RGIII. I have no issues with Skins winning that way, you have to take advantage of your strengths. But at the same time, a gimmick offense doesn’t win super bowls. That isn’t hate, it’s just a fact. Eventually, RGIII will become a pocket passer, and I think he will be a pretty good one. But To say he has made the Skins into a top 10 team right now, is probably a little too high.

  41. blu4l1fe says: Dec 11, 2012 12:31 PM

    When was the last time the top two ranked teams in this ranking actually won the Super Bowl? I am asking because I seriously don’t know the answer and I would like to give some perspective to some of the folks in here who are bickering back and forth as to their teams ranking.

    And as a fan, I think the Giants are ranked too high. GO BIG BLUE!!!

  42. orakpocalypse says: Dec 11, 2012 12:37 PM

    That’s hilarious. The Ravens are a lot better than the Seahawks and clearly the Redskins are better than the Ravens. Dallas at 12 is probably the most hilarious. You should try watching some football between writing bad articles.

  43. h1ndrix says: Dec 11, 2012 12:43 PM

    Redskins above the Colts? Somebody’s blowing RG3

    Well when the Skins have the no 1 rated passer in the game and the Colts have no 31, it’s hard not to favor the Skins.

  44. garonm says: Dec 11, 2012 12:53 PM

    “Fortunately, It shows that the AFC East is still the toughest Division in the NFL. Unfortunately, Tom Brady will get another ring.”

    Funny because the 49ers are 3 -0 against AFC East teams this year… Not to mention that Seattle beat Brady. I guess we’ll all see on Sunday night how Brady will fare. I will admit that the Niners are in a little disarray right now though and if the Patriots can get them on their heels, it will be a bad game for them.

  45. jicjak says: Dec 11, 2012 12:55 PM

    Little on the dumb side are we? Texans got wiped by both the Pats and Packers. Number one and two receptively. Denver a solid third. The Giants will do what it is necessary to make it interesting at the end. Number four. The rest don’t count.

  46. 16x8equal49ers says: Dec 11, 2012 1:08 PM

    “Seahawks: Unlike the 2005 team that made it to the Super Bowl, this team can win big games away from Seattle.”
    Um smh head they only quality team away from home was the reeling Bears squad in OT. The Seachickens are maybe a one win playoff team if at home.

    ————————————————-
    Not quite right. Brown fielded the 1st kick off by the Browns and got zinged; Wilson took the following kick offs. Bradshaw carried the ball 30 times that game; Wilson had just 2 (the same number as Eli).

    I like Coughlin a lot but I think he has erred in how he has handled his RBs this season. Brown is gone for the season and Bradshaw is in rough shape from being way over used. You have to hope that Bradshaw can do 10 – 15 carries a game with an equal amount for Wilson, as Wilson is not a +20 carry per game back.

    If the Texans and Broncos played again in Houston right now, it might go the other way… but the fact is Denver lost heads up to the Texans, they have a worse record, and have no wins over top 10 teams.. not sure how they’re deserving…

  54. weepingjebus says: Dec 11, 2012 1:32 PM

    “18. Saints: Every team that makes it to the playoffs in the NFC should be very glad that the Saints won’t.”

    I’m a Saints fan, and I find this laughable. Obviously, you haven’t watched them the last three weeks. It’s a flawed team with a rudderless coaching staff and a QB who is playing like a rookie instead of the highest-paid player in the league. Stick to analyzing the NFL’s legal scenarios.

    ———————————————-

    Teams change a lot from week 6 to week 14, some for the better and others for the worse.
    The big failure then was the Pats’ D not holding the lead – a too familiar story.

    Playing now at this point in the season and with the Pats’ D is starting to play at it’s best level in years; if Seattle were to allow the Pats to run 85 plays on offense (30 more than the hawks) with almost 500 total yards like they did back in early October the result would be a bit different.

    Seattle’s D has 1 key player on a 4 game suspension for ped violation and will be losing another shortly. Perhaps there should be some more testing done?

    Not a really a Seattle fan or hater but hard to ignore Florio touting this teams ability to win on the road… 2-5 road record doesn’t really strike me as a team that can win big games on the road… they are 1 game away from being only able to win A game on the road…

    To all the haters, the falcons and texans beat the broncos very early this season. All three are different teams now and I would expect the broncos to win easily against either of those two teams at this point. The texans and falcons have peaked while the broncos are still on the rise and have yet to play a complete game, which should be a scary thought for the rest of the league. I think the broncos and patriots are really in a league of their own in the afc at this point.

    Pack gets 150 yards as a team AP gets 210 in 3 quarters also out rushed your whole team this past week 154 to 120

    One team is 9-4 and has a strangle hold on the 5th seed and WILL be playing in the postseason.

    The other is 7-6 and on the outside looking in.

    You can keep a QB who’s passer rating is inflated by throwing dinks and dunks. I’ll take the QB who has ice water in his veins and throws downfield. RGIII can take that top passer rating to the couch with him come the playoffs. Luck and the Colts will still be playing.

    “Seahawks: Unlike the 2005 team that made it to the Super Bowl, this team can win big games away from Seattle.”

    A 2-5 road record assured you of that??

  81. jprcox says: Dec 11, 2012 4:15 PM

    I think the problem with the ranking is you have teams with a good offense ranked too high. Sure, they can beat up on teams without a D, but like NE was beat by Seattle, and lets see how they do against 49ers.

    Denver is in same boat – lets see how they do against a good D.

    #7 may be a little too generous for the ‘Hawks until they prove they can consistently win on the road, but it’s pretty obvious now that the #22 preseason ranking you gave them was ridiculous.

    Broncos are NUMBER 2… Hate it if you want… But either way… IIWII (it is what it is)…lol oh.. and GO BRONCOS!

  84. philrat says: Dec 11, 2012 4:59 PM

    Texans should be number 2 because they whipped the broncos in denver. Game was not as close as score.

    10. Redskins: George McFly thinks this could be a team of density.

    The Raiders have climbed over one 2-10 team. If they lose to the Chiefs this Sunday, they damned well better get that coveted 32 spot.

  87. jerrygray721 says: Dec 11, 2012 7:25 PM

    the pat’s at the #1 spot. i suppose they should be because they always seem to get b.s. calls to keep drives alive and almost never seem to get called on the stuff they do especially the holding they get away with on the o-line and here of late i’ve seen alot of push off’s from thier wr’s that ofcourse dont get called.maybe it’s just me maybe my eye’s are bad maybe my t.v. is bad maybe i am seeing things when i watch the replays over and over or maybe the long history between goodells family and the kraft family has something to do with it. i’m just stuned everytime i watch a pats game and see the stuff they get by with and the bad calls that go aginst alot of the other teams they are playing.imo the bulk of the pats games need to be reviewed by an independent party frame by frame and some hard questions need to be anwsered btw did i mention they already have a history of cheating- oop’s i shouldn’t say that because i know how in denial pats nation is.

    Falcons, the worst 11-2 team in NFL history? That’s like saying “the worst looking Swedish swimsuit model” of all time. Doesn’t make a whole bunch of sense.

  89. joeyd524 says: Dec 12, 2012 2:32 AM

    Adrian Peterson should be #1 on this list….what he’s doing this year after the knee problems from last December,I think he’s a terminator! I don’t care about the Vikings but on Sundays I find a bar with the nfl package just so I can watch this guy play,who cares about teams that can throw it allover the place(boring) do yourself a favor next Sunday find somewhere to watch the vikes play,you’ll thanks me Monday morning..

  90. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Dec 12, 2012 9:12 PM

    The Broncos shouldn’t be ahead of the Texans or Falcons because they lost to both of them this year head to head.

    Cowboys ranked ahead of the Bears? Seriously? Did you see that Monday night game?
