1. Broncos (13-3; last week No. 1): At least they don’t have to worry about losing to the Ravens at home again.
2. Seahawks (13-3; No. 2): They suddenly have to worry about losing to the Packers at home.
3. Panthers (12-4; No. 3): Defense — and an offense that can do just enough to score some points — wins championships.
4. Patriots (12-4; No. 4): LeGarrette Blount punched the Bills in the mouth.
5. 49ers (12-4; No. 5): On Sunday, it will be nearly as cold in Green Bay as the average June night in San Francisco.
6. Saints (11-5; No. 6): The team that recently can’t win on the road faces a team that until recently couldn’t win at home.
7. Eagles (10-6; No. 7): Chip Kelly will have to get used to playing in a postseason game without naming rights.
8. Bengals (11-5; No. 10): A playoff losing streak that began with the game in which the Bengals wrecked Bo Jackson’s hip could finally be ending.
9. Chiefs (11-5; No. 9): Steelers fans will forever spell Ryan Succop’s name with a K. And an F.
11. Cardinals (10-6; No. 8): They finished only one game better than the 2008 team that made it to the Super Bowl, but these Cardinals have created a sense that they can sustain their momentum.
12. Chargers (9-7; No. 13): Yes, they made the playoffs. But they barely beat the Kansas City “B” team to get there.
13. Steelers (8-8; No. 14): The Yinzers can finally tear down that Bill Leavy statue.
15. Ravens (8-8; No. 12): These three and 50 blackbirds will be spending the offseason eating some humble pie.
16. Jets (8-8; No. 20): The entire offseason should be devoted to getting better offensive personnel.
17. Cowboys (8-8; No. 15): “Winning exactly as many as we lose, since 1997.”
18. Bears (8-8; No. 17): If Lovie Smith gets fired for 10-6, who gets fired for 8-8?
19. Dolphins (8-8; No. 18): Miami continues to say “meh” when it comes to their local NFL team.
20. Giants (7-9; No. 22): Tom Coughlin is officially on the hot seat for the third time; the last two times, he won the Super Bowl.
21. Rams (7-9; No. 19): Curiously stubborn about Sam Bradford as a franchise quarterback, the Rams should at least consider the possibility of an upgrade with the No. 2 pick.
22. Bills (6-10; No. 21): Some Buffalo fans may want the Bills to do what the Browns recently did.
23. Titans (7-9; No. 24): Three-plus decades of loyal service should get Mike Munchak one more year to turn it around.
24. Lions (7-9; No. 23): This franchise won’t become any better until their franchise quarterback begins to act like one.
25. Vikings (5-10-1; No. 26): They’re reportedly interested in the Broncos offensive coordinator. We didn’t know Peyton Manning wanted to go into coaching.
26. Jaguars (4-12; No. 25): If they can find a good quarterback, the Jags can get back into contention.
27. Buccaneers (4-12; No. 27): Is it really a surprise that a guy who was 0-11 against WVU while at Rutgers couldn’t make it longer than two years as an NFL coach?
28. Browns (4-12; No. 28): The next head coach immediately will be nicknamed Shemp.
29. Falcons (4-12; No. 29): If you told Falcons fans in September that their team wouldn’t lose in the postseason, they would have been pretty darn excited.
30. Raiders (4-12; No. 30): The best reason to keep Dennis Allen? There’s a chance no one else would take the job.
31. Redskins (3-13; No. 31): A year after the Redskins won seven in a row after starting 3-6, they lost seven in a row after starting 3-6.
32. Texans (2-14; No. 32): It’ll be a lot cheaper to sign the first overall pick than it was the last time Houston earned it.
