Week 13 Power Rankings

Getty Images

1. Cowboys (10-1; last week No. 1): The biggest threat to the No. 1 seed resides in their own division.

2. Raiders (9-2; No. 2): Playing down to the level of the competition could make Oakland a one-and-done playoff participant, if they’re not careful.

3. Patriots (9-2; No. 4): Avocado ice cream apparently has magical healing powers. Unless it’s the toppings.

4. Giants (8-3; No. 5): The Giants are possibly doing well enough to get Todd Bowles fired.

5. Chiefs (8-3; No. 8): Tyreek Hill could be Dante Hall, Priest Holmes, and Dwayne Bowe rolled into one player.

6. Seahawks (7-3-1; No. 3): If the road to the Super Bowl doesn’t go through Seattle, the Seahawks likely won’t be playing there.

7. Falcons (7-4; No. 7): With the Buccaneers rising, the Falcons’ margin for error is shrinking.

8. Broncos (7-4; No. 6): If the Broncos can’t trust their defense, can any team trust its defense?

9. Lions (7-4; No. 10): With visits to the Saints, Giants, and Cowboys upcoming, those close games could be ending, soon.

10. Dolphins (7-4; No. 11): Has any six-game winning streak ever been more overlooked nationally?

11. Washington (6-4-1; No. 9): They may be better than they were a year ago. Unfortunately, the rest of the division is, too.

12. Bills (6-5; No. 14): The NFL is better when Rex Ryan is in it, and the Bills may be doing enough to ensure that he will be.

13. Buccaneers (6-5; No. 20): It may not happen this year or next year, but the Buccaneers will win a Super Bowl with Jameis Winston at quarterback.

14. Packers (5-6; No. 15): Two games behind the Lions and one game behind the Vikings, the schedule says that the Packers are still the favorites to win the division.

15. Ravens (6-5; No. 17): When the field goal kicker is the best player on the team, that says a lot about the kicker. Or not a lot about the rest of the team.

16. Steelers (6-5; No. 18): All I want for Christmas is a Steelers-Raiders playoff game.

17. Texans (6-5; No. 12): Good news/bad news — they finally broke the cycle of winning the games they should and losing the games they should.

18. Vikings (6-5; No. 13): “Playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game.”

19. Titans (6-6; No. 21): A late bye week gives them extra time to get ready for what would be a signature win over the Broncos.

20. Eagles (5-6; No. 16): The silver lining in their 2-6 slide could be that Jim Schwartz won’t get hired as a head coach elsewhere.

21. Chargers (5-6; No. 25): The worst team in the AFC West continues to prove that it would be the best team in three or four other divisions.

22. Saints (5-6; No. 26): Bounty penalty for the team, a pair of second-round picks. Lost revenue for Sean Payton, more than $7 million. Ramming it sideways up the rear end of Gregg Williams, priceless.

23. Colts (5-6; No. 19): Jim Irsay prefers championships to Star Wars statistics. He now has neither.

24. Bengals (3-7-1; No. 22): “At least we’re the best team in Ohio, if you leave out the Buckeyes.”

25. Cardinals (4-6-1; No. 23): They were supposed to be better. They’re worse. Much, much worse.

26. Panthers (4-7; No. 24): OK, it’s finally time to insert the fork.

27. Rams (4-7; No. 27): Given the scrap with Eric Dickerson, they’re actually 4-8.

28. Jets (3-8; No. 28): Woody Johnson is five weeks away from pressing the reset button, again.

29. Bears (2-9; No. 29): If no one pays attention to their game against the 49ers, will it make a sound?

30. Jaguars (2-9; No. 30): What was supposed to be a big step up from 5-11 has been a major step back.

31. 49ers (1-10; No. 31): The Titans suddenly look very smart for not reuniting Chip Kelly with Marcus Mariota.

32. Browns (0-12; No. 32): The last, best chance to win a game comes when the Bengals visit after the bye.

  1. Love the rams comment.
    Packers spot seems more realistic.

    Cowboys vs giants
    And
    Seahawks vs falcons

    Seems like a great nfc playoff weekend

  2. I thought the power rankings were based on week-to-week performance, not projecting that the Packers will get better soon because of their schedule. Rather, you’re supposed to reflect where the teams are NOW…..Just saying’ everyone bashes you so I thought I would too

  3. 13. Buccaneers (6-5; No. 20): It may not happen this year or next year, but the Buccaneers will win a Super Bowl with Jameis Winston at quarterback.

    ____________

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this statement.

  4. I don’t know that I would say the Raiders played “down” to the competition, unless you are willing to say the same of the Chiefs and Broncos, who also beat the Panthers by 3 points or less.

    Of their 7 losses, 5 have been within a field-goal. The NFL is a funny league, but the Panthers are closer to good than their record indicates (really they are only a healthy center and a pair of tackles away).

  5. Ok….Packers favorites?! to win the division? They finally stopped losing, congratulations. Now they play two straight games and 3 of their remaining 5 against current playoff teams. They would need to finish 4-1 while the Lions finish 1-4. And/or beat the Lions in week 17. The unbridled Packer love by these writers is maddening.

  6. titans look smart for not reuniting chip kelly with mariota? lol offensive coaching isn’t the problem with the 49er team, it’s the defense and lack of WR’s.

    look at the numbers chip got out of kapernick with jeremy kerley as their best wide reciever.

  7. I don’t think the Giants are very good and will probably lose first playoff game and be out. Kansas City and Seattle are better teams and should be above them in the rankings. My Vikes will be out of the top 20 by next week..oh well another season down the drain. No purple and gold confetti..

  8. …” The Titans suddenly look very smart for not reuniting Chip Kelly with Marcus Mariota.”…

    I remember the good old days, long ago, when Chip Kelly was a PFT genius.

  9. The pack are still the superbowl favorites according to pack fans, PFT and other media packer lovers.

    ANYTHING short of a superbowl win, is an epic failure for the packers.

    Don’t forget that.

  10. I’m a Giants fan and even I don’t believe they belong ahead of the Hawks. Seattle dropped too far for being beat up and losing to a Bucs team that also beat KC.

  11. I think Justin Houston trumps Arnold Schwartzenegger when he says; “I’ll be back…”

    And he did it without Ford, Poe, and Howard. Imagine when he gets those 3 starters back on that d-line.

  12. 14. Packers (5-6; No. 15): Two games behind the Lions and one game behind the Vikings, the schedule says that the Packers are still the favorites to win the division.

    What? Have you looked at the schedule? Houston, Seattle, Minnesota and Detroit all have a good chance to beat GB. If they lose just one of those, they’re out.

  13. 16. Steelers (6-5; No. 18): All I want for Christmas is a Steelers-Raiders playoff game.
    ———-
    HERE HERE!!

  14. The idiots over at ESPN have the Steelers (who were crushed by the Phins and have a worse record) 3 spots ahead of the Dolphins. Laughable!

  15. The Pats and Giants are a tasty 3 and 4 respectively. The only thing I want to see more than a Pitt-Oak playoff game is #thetrilogy

    Pats’ fans don’t. We are their kryptonite. The Stratego spy to their general. Tyree, Manningham, this year…a little known fellow by the name of Roger Lewis. Mark this all down.

  16. sure, they could win the division… if they get to play an overrated rookie quarterback every week!

  17. I will make a bold prediction here no one will probably like hearing in Texas but the Cowboys will be one and done in the playoffs…bank on it.

  18. Hilarious how pessimistic Giants fans are (of which I am one). I don’t think any Giants fan who knows the team, and sees how poorly their offense is playing thinks they’ll survive the buzz saw that is their looming schedule. Steelers, Dallas, Lions, Eagles (at philly) and Skins? Ugh.

    And the humor that is the unconditional love for the Packers on PFT is kinda no longer funny. Maybe they can win their division (if a meteor takes out the lions perhaps), but that does not represent their quality TODAY. And today, they are not a very good team.

  19. The Raiders “playing down to the level of the competition?” Don’t act like they’re some juggernaut dynasty all of a sudden. This will be their first season with a winning record since 2002! You shouldn’t be able to just brush off all these close games against mediocre teams so easily until they actually do something in January.

  20. The Packers are not favorites to win the divison.

    2 games back with 5 to play.

    At 60% chance to win each game on average the chance of the Packers running the table is only 7.7%.

    It’s not likely.

    The Lions have a much better chance to win 3 of 5.

    Not so bold. No rookie QB has ever made the Super Bowl, let alone won it.

    There’s always a first time, and there’s always the chance Romo plays, but odds are against Dak.

  22. 13. Buccaneers (6-5; No. 20): It may not happen this year or next year, but the Buccaneers will win a Super Bowl with Jameis Winston at quarterback.

    And to think, some Bucs “fans” wanted them to bench Winston and start Glennon. smh.

    Go Bucs

  23. justintuck

    Pats’ fans don’t. We are their kryptonite.

    could be, but now that Coughlin is gone, could be a different outcome.

    If they (both) can make it to the SB…

  24. NYG ranked #4, and Pit ranked #16. Vegas set the line at Pitt -6.

    What do you know that Vegas doesn’t know? If you believe in these rankings, you should put the house on NY.

  25. Not sure why you don’t think the Seahawks can win on the road in the playoffs. They beat the Pats on the road. The Dallas palace is not exactly the most daunting place to play.

  26. Has any 6 game winning streak gone on unnoticed nationally?

    Forget that… has any Browns ranked at #32 5 year streak gone on unnoticed nationally?! Now thats EVEN MORE impressive.

  27. Why Schwartz not getting hired away from the Eagles is a “silver lining” is beyond me.

    His defenses have looked unprepared in three losses, and that’s on him.

  28. How are the packers 9 spots ahead of the Saints when they are essentially in exactly the same position in record and standing in their respective divisions? Dumb. I don’t have a problem with the Saints being that low, but the packers deserve to be down there too.

    =====================

    Outside of a Hawks rematch there is nothing Pats fans would rather see than a SB matchup with the Giants. Just like with the Hawks, matchups with the Giants are always great games and may the team that plays best on that day win. Fear none, respect all, just play the damn game and no whining.

  30. One day Tom Brady will come to terms with himself that he has been living a lie this whole time. The many forms of cheating (spygate, deflategate, PEDs) that he has performed over his career and he will spill the beans in a tell all book. Then the Pats homers heads will explode. Back to the good ol days, before 9/11.

  31. So much hate for the Packers here. NEWS FLASH PEOPLE – there aren’t but 2-3 great(ish) teams in league this year. After the Boys, Raiders and Pats you could rank everyone but the Bears, Vikes, Jags, Browns and Niners however you’d like and I’d be fine with it.

  32. Lions literally need to win 2 games to win division. Hell, if we beat the Pack in week 17 8-8 would probably take it. Win v Bears and v anyone else and it’s a virtual certainty that 9-7 wins the division and week 17 is meaningless.

  33. Giants fan, so no dog in the fight, but Browns and Jags and Jets need to study the Raiders on how to turn a franchise around. Patient drafting, patient talent development, and some more patience.

    Packers would lose to #15-28 on this list….

    ===============================

    Considering they just dominated #20 in their own stadium I call your statement BS.

    They also have the Texans at home this week which will show us if they will make a run or not.

    Might want to save half that house money for the Bucs getting 5.5 @ SD, oops too late it’s already dropped to 4 glad I took it off the open. Split the $8k of my YTD winnings between the Giants & Bucs, expecting a nice bounce for the Santa fund at the expense of the Steelers and Chargers.

    The Patriots have been to 4 more AFC championship games and won a Super Bowl since we last heard of the Giants, who’ve apparently been on the back of a milk carton since then. Those games have nothing to do with 2016–I would personally welcome the rematch but I just don’t think the Giants will make it all the way to February, and the Patriots most likely will for a 7th time in Brady’s career..

    As it turns out, the Giants kryptonite in the last 5 years has been…the playoffs. Smack dab in the prime of Eli’s career too.

  37. Superpatsfan( who is actually a JEST fan), if TB 12 were to write a book about his life as a 4 time super bowl champ, the only thing it would contain are recipes for healthy food, such as avocado ice cream & his work out routine. That’s it , nothing else!

    ——–
    You’re only looking at the last 3 years. The Raiders have been awful for the 14 before this going through GMs, coaches and QBs left and right.

  39. Everyone can keep sleeping on the Chiefs and they will quietly get healthier. Division games against Denver and oakland, both in KC, and one more on the road in SD. Chiefs can win out and sweep the toughest division in the NFL. The game that worries me the most is at San Diego. Rivers is a stud and that team is dangerous. They can take one away right at the end.

    Tyreek also apparently has some Larry Johnson in him.

    ========================================

    He’s got some Ray Rice in him too, don’t forget that!

  41. As a Broncos fan, it is very sobering to be 3rd place in our division especially when the Raiders are leading the division. However, there is still a lot of ball left to be played and nothing at this point is guaranteed for any team in the AFC West.

  42. Saints and Chargers are both 5-6. Saints beat the Chargers in San Diego and of their 6 losses, five are to your #2, #4, #5, #7 and #8 teams — four of those by razor thin margins. They also beat Seattle (#6) so how are the Chargers ranked above them?

  43. The Cowboys may not get to the Super Bowl, but they certainly have a chance, rookie QB and all. It’s hard to point to an NFC team that would be favored against them in AT&T Stadium. They might lose a SB matchup with the Patriots, with Tom Brady chewing up their secondary, but that would be one heck of an entertaining game.

    ———–

    Next weekend you will need to come to terms with the fact that Brady has won more games than any QB to ever play the game…..and he’s not even close to being done yet…..

  45. Chargers, like they do every year, will win out in the final stretch of games and possibly get them to 10-6 and a wild-card showing.

    That measly 10-6 will get Mike McCoy a 4 year extension and another 4 years of 9-7 and 10-6.

  46. We’ve lost 5 of our last 6 and are STILL ahead of the Packers in the standings. I’ve no doubt we will finish ahead of them at the end of the season.

    And Reggie has been here 4 years, the man took over a complete dumpster fire and turned it into a competitive team. In his first couple of years we had almost as much dead money paying out as we were paying to those on the roster. He was trained the right way to do things with his time in Green Bay, the Raider Nation thanks the Packers!

    ————————————––——————————————-

    They’ll never say it. Donkey love & Reid worship is pretty evident when Oakland is in the mix.

  50. Until Jack Del Rio stops getting severely outcoached by Andy Reid and the Chiefs, you gotta like the chiefs to win the AFC West..pure honesty from a Raiders fan.

    With that said, Raiders should make the playoffs no problem either way,

  51. The Super Bowl isn’t a place, so the blurb about the Seahawks seems to imply they won’t be playing in Seattle. “Won’t be playing IN IT” makes a lot more sense.

    Your rankings (and all power rankings) continue to be worthless. Oh, and the Jaguars are awesome. Good call PFT!

  52. PS: Bowles is safe. Woody is relatively patient with his head coaches. Still, if the Jets catch nWo style beatdowns from here on out on the way to 3-13 that might change.

  53. Giants fan, so no dog in the fight, but Browns and Jags and Jets need to study the Raiders on how to turn a franchise around. Patient drafting, patient talent development, and some more patience.

    ….riiiiiiight. It only took 14 years. The Jets have been to championship games in the meantime. Maybe they studied us? The Giants are a sham and will be bounced from the playoffs first round or not make it all.

  54. “the Buccaneers will win a Super Bowl with Jameis Winston at quarterback.”

    Hopefully they will continue believing this delusion so that they keep him and remain irrelavant in the nfc south for years!

  55. I am a Die hard long time Bills fan! Season ticket holder for 15 plus seasons. They are ranked wayyyy to high. They barely beat the Jags and they will finish 9-7 at best.

  56. Reggie has done a nice job in Oakland. But let’s be honest – 90% of it hinges on hitting on a QB. The bottom feeder teams can do everything right and not get lucky on a QB and they will still be bottom feeders.

    The only franchise pathetic enough to fall into a franchise QB and still be awful is the Indianapolis Colts. I’ll say it again – one of the worst run franchises in ALL OF PROFESSIONAL SPORTS. And have been, even throughout the Peyton years when their fans were dreaming like they were a top notch organization. They were handed Peyton and got one ring after 15 years of HOF QB play. They are again handed a QB and look what they do with it. Honestly, I think the Browns might be a better organization. Seriously. I have no doubt that the Jets and Jags are ran better…

    One day you will come to terms with yourself as well and acknowledge the lie that you have been living with this whole time and finally accept being a Jets fan.

    I’m a Jets fan. You definitely, as a fan, don’t want to see the Giants. You were a far better team overall both times and lost anyway. I’m not superstitious but I’d still be worried.

    Patriots and Giants both suck.

  59. Patriots should be #1. We win despite our fossil QB with a deteriorating arm. No other team can say the same.

    Like they do every year? The Chargers haven’t “won out” since 2009. And that was the last time they posted a 10 win season.
    Sounds like wishful thinking on your part.

  62. I know no one wants to hear this, but at least I stand by my team in times of trouble…..

    There’s no way in hell the Panthers should be behind the Bengals and Cards. The Panthers have been within 5 minutes of winning all their games except Minnesota. Yes, blowing all those leads earns the low ranking. But Cincinnati is terrible. And the Cards? If memory serves me right, WE BEAT THEM.

    No. His system works great as long as he has 100 blue chippers standing on the sideline with him while playing vastly inferior teams every Saturday.

    When you have those ingredients then all those “sports milkshakes” and running a million offensive plays a game at a super fast pace smacks of pure genius!!

  65. Saints #22… 4 totally inexplicable plays from being 9-2. Mostly you just lined up the teams by record… and you did have a world class bell-ringer of a comment to go with it. I’ll let it slide.

    _________________

    As a Bills fan a 7 point win over Jacksonville doesn’t feel great, but Jacksonville plays everyone close. They’ve lost to Detroit, Houston, KC, Baltimore, and Green Bay all by 7 or less. They play tough, they just don’t know how to win. The Bills will likely be favorites in their last 4 games. I don’t think they’ll get to the playoffs, but acting like they stink isn’t an accurate portrayal either

  69. being a life long bengal fan never thought i’d say this – go browns bet bengals! that’s how disappointing bengals have been, said but true coach giggles will be back next year too

  70. you do realize that every time you declare a team out of the playoffs, you declare them front runners the next week…

    and vice versa.

    and l.o.l. at the vikings ranking description. what a real knee slapper.

  71. Hey chargers fan, 4 years of 10-6 or 9-7 would be better than the last 14 years of the pathetic raiders. Trust them, it could be worse.

    Thanks for the weekly laughs! Raiders better than the Patriots? Suuuuuurrree.
    _________________________

    The same Patriots that just squeaked by the Jets? The same Patriots that also have lost 2 games this year (same as the Raiders) proving they’re beatable? I’m sure you thought the Titanic was unsinkable too. Why don’t you just settle down a bit.

  73. Seahawks drop significantly after losing to a pretty good team. May as well have them at 10th, as they hold only the 1/2 game over those between them and 10. And Miami and Atlanta “should” have beat them.

    It took weeks of ugly losses before the Packers or Panthers got dropped significantly.

    I want some combination of ESPN’s group approach (relying more on ex-players and coaches than writers and talking heads), SI’s approach of limiting it to the top 15 teams, and curated by someone who a) watches all the games and b) doesn’t let their own fandom intercede.

    At the very least, state the methodology. Even if it is just, as it appears to me, “watch two games and some highlights, listen to other people to learn what they think, look at the standings, base Packers ranking on 2010.”

  74. “I will make a bold prediction here no one will probably like hearing in Texas but the Cowboys will be one and done in the playoffs…bank on it.”

    ———————————–

    I don’t think so, but hey they might go one and done. Anything can happen in the NFL!

    But if we get a defensive draft this year anything close to the offensive draft we had last year…………….watch out next season. Bank on it.

  75. Love my Raiders! But it’s too high. They have the fire power to play with anyone, but still think in the end Pat’s and Pitt will be too much if Pitt makes the playoffs. Both AFC wild cards are coming out of the West.
    Someone mentioned some matchups in the NFC
    Atlanta vrs Seattle
    Dallas vrs Giants

    That would be good!

  76. If my Browns ever move up from the 32nd slot, I suggest PFT retire the number 32 from this list. Future worst teams can be tied at 31, or designated as 31A and 31B.

  77. 13. Buccaneers (6-5; No. 20): It may not happen this year or next year, but the Buccaneers will win a Super Bowl with Jameis Winston at quarterback.
    ~Maybe so

    2. Raiders (9-2; No. 2): Playing down to the level of the competition could make Oakland a one-and-done playoff participant, if they’re not careful.

    You got this backwards
    It should read:

    2.Raiders (9-2; No. 2) : It may not happen this year or next year, but the Raiders will win a Super Bowl with Derek Carr at quarterback.
    That’s more like it.

  78. Saints ranked too low. Drew Brees has been playing lights out. Keep underestimating him. It motivates him.
