Week 14 power rankings

Getty Images

1. Rams (11-1; last week No. 2): There’s a good chance they’ll keep this spot through the balance of the season.

2. Chiefs (10-2; No. 3): Kareem Hunt or no Kareem Hunt, the Chiefs will keep rolling as long as they have Patrick Mahomes.

3 Saints (10-2; No. 1): With games against the Bucs, Panthers, Steelers, and Panthers on deck, we’ll find out quickly whether last Thursday was an aberration.

4. Patriots (9-3; No. 4): After making it to 1,000 career rushing yards, Tom Brady will be sending his ski boots to Canton.

5. Chargers (9-3; No. 6): Fingers crossed for a playoff game in a 30,000-seat stadium.

6. Texans (9-3; No. 7): They’re starting to feel like a potential Team of Density.

7. Cowboys (7-5; No. 9): An all-Texas Super Bowl would have to be moved to Texas, right?

8. Bears (8-4; No. 5): And now we know why Chase Daniel had only two career starts in nine prior seasons.

9. Seahawks (7-5; No. 11): This is the team that should be keeping Sean McVay up at night.

10. Ravens (7-5; No. 13): This is the team that should be keeping Bill Belichick up at night.

11. Steelers (7-4-1; No. 8): This is the team that keeps Steelers fans up at night.

12. Vikings (6-5-1; No. 10): This is the team that allows Vikings fans to sleep peacefully. Because they know it’s over.

13. Broncos (6-6; No. 17): Vance Joseph has earned a third year in Denver.

14. Eagles (6-6; No. 18): They won’t beat the Cowboys, Rams, and/or Texans if they play like they did on Monday night.

15. Titans (6-6; No. 16): They’ve gone from making the Jekyll and Hyde transformation from week to week to doing it within the same game.

16. Colts (6-6; No. 12): Even with five wins in a row, one loss can change everything.

17. Dolphins (6-6; No. 22): Somehow, they’re still alive for the playoffs.

18. Panthers (6-6; No. 14): Somehow, they’re on the brink of blowing a once-certain playoff spot.

19. Washington (6-6; No. 15): Somehow, they have Mark Sanchez as their starting quarterback.

20. Buccaneers (5-7; No. 24): Somehow, free tickets didn’t fix anything.

21. Browns (4-7-1; No. 19): At least John Dorsey won’t have to worry about the fans clamoring for Gregggggg.

22. Packers (4-7-1; No. 20): This is not how the 100th season was supposed to go.

23. Giants (4-8; No. 27): They never quit, except when trying to field an onside kick.

24. Lions (4-8; No. 21): A late-season push to .500 isn’t out of the question.

25. Bills (4-8; No. 23): A late-season push to .500 isn’t out of the question.

26. Bengals (5-7; No. 25): A late-season push to .500 is probably out of the question.

27. Jaguars (4-8; No. 29): Nothing improves a defense like benching the quarterback.

28. Falcons (4-8; No. 26): Jobs may not be on the line this year, but they definitely will be next year.

29. Cardinals (3-9; No. 32): Steve Wilks, coach killer.

30. Jets (3-9; No. 28): 50 years after a Western Pennsylvania kid led the team to a Super Bowl win, could Pittsburgh native Mike McCarthy be the answer at head coach?

31. 49ers (2-10; No. 30): Bay.

32. Raiders (2-10; No. 31): Of pigs.

  1. The Eagles will beat the Cowboys, Rams, Texans and Skins again. Don’t forget the Eagles won in L.A. last season and the Rams are going down in December!

  2. Nice job putting Denver at the top of the 6-6 teams seeing close losses to LAR and KC with wins against LAC and PIT. Not yet a “good” team but certainly not “bad”.

    You think the Eagles will win out?

    No chance!

    The only game they will win, will be the Skins game.

    I like your confidence but this isn’t 2017.

  5. No team keeps bill belichick up at night mikey. Bill belichick busts his butt putting the hay in the barn with his staff, has the homelife he wants with babydoll, and always sleeps well. That maddening thought is what keeps his opponents up at night

  6. Chiefs (10-2; No. 3): Kareem Hunt or no Kareem Hunt, the Chiefs will keep rolling as long as they have Patrick Mahomes.

    ———–

    Not doubting this completely, but they did play Oakland. If KC play great and win the next 3 against Balt, LAC and @Sea (or even go 2-1) then they are certainly fine without Hunt.

  7. I was impressed with the Cowboys win over the saints but I wouldnt put them at 7. We still only managed 13 points in a game we dominated on defense. Offense still cant score. Dak is still our quarterback. I would move them to 11 and move those teams in between up on one. Outside of that it’s probably one of the more accurate rankings they’ve had on here.

    There’s always a Team of Destiny until they lose in the playoffs.

  10. What seems longer ago?

    – Kyle Shanahan is an offensive genius

    – The Jaguars have the best roster in football

    – Derek Carr is the next great quarterback

  11. Feels like just yesterday we all enjoyed a long offseason filled with boasts about the Raiders, Bills, Falcons, and so on. And I’m sure we’ll get another one in a few months. So for now let’s just appreciate the peace and quiet.

  12. 10. Ravens (7-5; No. 13): This is the team that should be keeping Bill Belichick up at night.
    ——————————-
    Why should a team that hasn’t beaten the Patriots in almost 6 years (0-3 and were blown out once) be keeping Belichick up at night?

    Make it 0-4 and a second blowout if they meet in January. Book it.

  13. The Eagles won’t be able to beat the Cowboys, Rams, and/or Texans if they only allow 235 yards on offense, where 90 of those yards came on only one play? They can’t win when they do that while putting up 436 yards of offense with a near 50-50 run/pass ratio and possess the ball for twice as much time as the opponent? That’s how they played on Monday night, right?

    Are you new? That’s not how this works for the Vikings. The Vikings don’t simply get quietly eliminated. That would be too anti-climatic. I think the Vikings will win on Sunday in Seattle. They will win the next 2 games as well. They’ll have a week 17 matchup with the Bears for the Division Title. Win and your in. When the Vikings lose in some spectacular fashion, then AND ONLY then will we know its over. So please, PFT, don’t rob us of our let-down by implying that its over already.

  16. The Vikings most likely won’t win a super bowl this year, but their season is far from over. They will almost certainly make the playoffs with a 9-6-1 record. I ain’t nearly throwing in the towel yet. 3 out of their next 4 with two games at home and a trip to Detroit, leaves a lot of room to make the playoffs.

    A lot of this talk no doubt is coming from the Ravens beating the Patriots a few times earlier this decade and that’s silly cause it has absolutely nothing to do with 2018. Completely different team now.

    Jackson (if it’s him in a matchup) is also not Mahomes, Mariota, Watson, Wilson or Cam. Not yet. Patriots under Belichick have also not lost to a rookie QB at home. This won’t be the first time.

    They have also beaten one team with a winning record. They are winning close games against teams that are mediocre at best. The remaining schedule looks to be mediocre at best also.

    It would not surprise me to see them go into the playoff at 12-4 and get smoked by a team like the Chargers.

  19. 24. Lions (4-8; No. 21): A late-season push to .500 isn’t out of the question.

    And neither is a nosedive off a cliff to 4 – 12.

  20. Trubisky won’t be enough for the Bears. They will lose to the Rams. The Bears have been the beneficiaries of an incredibly weak schedule, including pathetic NFC North opponents. And any team worthy of a #8 ranking shouldn’t lose to the Giants, who did everything in their power to try to give that game to the Bears. Bears Down!

    Then how did his team already beat Watson and the Texans this season?

    In truth, this is a 6-6 team after bringing in the hottest OC of the off-season and paying (too much) for a quarterback.
    Spielmann has gotten props for building a solid roster, but considering they flip flop year to year from dominant to disappointing, they are one down year from blowing the whole thing up.

    Yeah, the Eagles played against that TREMENDOUS Washington offense – a team with a patchwork O-line, no clear WR1, a 2nd AND 3rd string QB who’s only been with the team 2 weeks that barely has knowledge of the offense.

    **************************************
    No way the Vikings win MONDAY in Seattle. That will be a 17+ point loss. Once they lose that game, they likely will lose 2 of their last 3. Probably in ridiculous, embarrassing fashion. THAT’S how it works for the Vikings.

  25. One game at a time! There are imposters in the playoff spots right now. Some teams are playing much better then their records. I expect that by season’s end that as many as 4 maybe 5 teams in the playoff spots (division or wild card) will be eliminated.
    It is December and teams are fading you can see it. Injuries are mounting and they are going exposed.
    Far too early to even think about the playoffs.

  26. think Deshaun Watson has proved to be a winner on every level he’s played…expect the Texans to be a handful in the postseason…great defense, very good offense

  27. I’m still calling a Patriots vs. Rams super bowl. The Chiefs aren’t going anywhere with their 28th ranked scoring defense. If the Saints end up playing the Rams in LA, I could see them losing that game as well. It’s my conspiracy theory that Brady will win his 6th ring against the same team that he won his first championship against in Super Bowl XXXVI. Then, he’ll either play just for stats and breaking records, or he’ll choose to retire.

    He does. Hanging upside down in the film room.

    (That’s meant as a compliment to his preparedness)

  29. I’m a Texans ST holder and don’t think we should be in the top 10. We’ve beaten poorly coached teams and just poor teams. (Un)fortunately we don’t play another team that doesn’t have huge question marks, so we probably won’t know how good/average we are, until it’s too late.

  30. Broncos have played 9 of their 12 games against one of the current top 11 teams (Rams-1, Chiefs-x2, LAC-1, TX-1, Bears-1, Seahawks-1, Ravens-1, Steelers-1). Denver is a 6-6 team with 4 losses by 7 points or less that may not make the playoffs. Not complaining, just proud.

    If the Saints somehow win out they deserve the top spot just based on SOS

    Sorry Skippy, that’s not how it works. If them and the Rams both win out then the Rams get the #1 because…you know… they would have 1 less loss.

  32. Can you just Imagine if the Patriots make it to another super bowl.

    30 Other teams will try and put more rules in place to ensure the Pats don’t go back again.

    If the Patriots win.

    You can add 31 other teams to the list

  33. “Fingers crossed for a playoff game in a 30,000-seat stadium.”

    Where it will only sell out through sales to opposing fans.

    “An all-Texas Super Bowl would have to be moved to Texas, right?”

    Why so Jerry can sell more non-existent seats again?

  34. For the second week in row, the Packers are ranked below the Browns.

    Sounds about right…

    The Cardinals move up 3 spots from last week’s #32 ranking with the victory.

  35. 14. Eagles (6-6; No. 18): They won’t beat the Cowboys, Rams, and/or Texans if they play like they did on Monday night
    ———————-

    I watched the game start to finish, and I have to say I don’t get why everyone in the media (including the Philly media) is bagging on the team’s performance. Did they make mistakes? Sure. Carson’s pick didn’t help, and he missed a few other throws. He also threw 2 TDs and for 306 yards. Ertz went off, Adams was quite good, and even Sproles got involved. They moved the ball just about at will. Penalties were minimal. Special teams were great. Defense? Other than the AP run, they held WSH to a grand total of SIX yards rushing. WSH couldn’t do anything in the passing game. If the point is they need to eliminate mistakes to beat better teams, that’s fine. Beyond that, I don’t get the negativity.

  36. Wowie! Still not sure why we are so worried about ware other teams are ranked, it just must be the fact that we are drowning in our own insecuritys
    What place do the Vikings have to rank again to make it to the play offs?

  38. As a huge Vikings fan, we’re way too high. Put us one spot above the Packers. That’s where we belong. This season is going nowhere. Cousins is who we thought he was – maybe he’ll be better if we can get a better offensive line. Hope so, anyway. What a disappointment this year has been.

    ………
    That’s what I’ve been saying the past few days to the vikings fans that dumped keenum for a mediocre qb that has one of the easiest schedules and has the same record as the broncos and keenum. Vikings screwed up bigtime overpaying for a mediocre cousins that never did anything in Washington, never won a playoff game. On the other hand, keenum took the vikings to the nfc championship game and a 13-3 record. Keenum is doing more with alot less and against the toughest schedule full of playoff teams and good teams in the hunt. Vikings screwed up bigtime letting go of keenum for mediocre cousins who has accomplished a whole lot of nothing.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No more .500 hell for the Lions! I almost want them to lose out to get the best draft pick possible!!! Sorry, but you either need to be really good or really bad to get somewhere in this league.

  44. The outcome of this Chargers vs. Chiefs match-up coming up here soon will tell us more about these two teams moving forward. I know the Chiefs won the first game 38 to 28 in LA, but that was back in week 1. Statistically, the Chargers have the 7th ranked scoring defense and the 7th ranked scoring offense. It should be a good game.

  45. I agree with the other Cowboy fan who said the Boys are too high at #7. I wouldn’t rank them there, around 10 or 11 sounds about right at this point. The Dallas D is the thing that gets the Boys that high.

    Also think the Panthers are too low. I know they’re on a losing streak, but they’re definitely better than the Titans, Colts and Dolphins. Going to be a heckuva finish for the 2 wild card spots in the NFC.

    Some are. Not many I know, though. I think winning the division is a 50-50 thing right now. We can probably lose the Rams game and still take it. Dallas is basically a must win for us. Lose that, and it’s very unlikely Dallas drops enough games for us to get in. Predictions are pointless in this league. It’s as much about the feel of how a team is playing as it is stats. My feeling about our team is the are going to right direction, both in terms of execution and getting players back from injury. What I don’t know if the pace is fast enough to overcome the six losses we have. I’d much rather us have gotten it together in October or early November. We’ll see.

  47. As the Brass and media in Minnesota keep blaming John DeFilippo for a lack of offense, remember a couple of things:

    1) O-line block=Protecting QB ans lets a team estabish the running game.
    2) Running game sets a solid passing game.
    3)Passing game sets up the Play Action which =TOUCHDOWN (Or substanial gains).

    NONE of these things happen in Minnesota because there is NO O-LINE and John DeFilippo continues to get blamed.

    Minnesota has used TWO #1 first round picks on O-line:

    Bryant McKinnie in 2002

    Matt Kalil in 2012

    Lastly BTW, John Defilippo was able to do his part in Philly because the Eagles had a TOP 3 Run game last season and the NUMBER 1 Offenisve line in Football.

    DeniaL is never a good thing.

  50. Belichick should use Develin, the fullback, more often every here and there for quick catches and for running 3rd and 1 plays. Based on my own recollection, he didn’t use him at all in those super bowl games. He’s had 15 rushing yards for NE since 2012 up until this season. The guy is 6’3” at 250 lbs. He is the most underutilized player on that Patriots’ roster hands down.

    This is where the delusion comes in from. The Cowboys are red hot right now and beat the Saints which just had a historic beatdown of the Eagles. The Eagles had to have a last second field goal to beat the team that’s last in the NFC East and beat a Washington team that has a makeshift o-line and had a QB that has been on the team for two weeks and hasn’t started a game in how many years? And now Eagles fans think they’re going to take the division?

    We’ll see how good that defense really is vs KC.

    If the Ravens do come to Gillette in January they won’t be keeping Belichick up at night any more than any other playoff team would.

  53. Sorry Skippy, that’s not how it works. If them and the Rams both win out then the Rams get the #1 because…you know… they would have 1 less loss.

    No Duh. I wasn’t talking about seeds nimrod

  54. “As the Brass and media in Minnesota keep blaming John DeFilippo for a lack of offense, remember a couple of things…NONE of these things happen in Minnesota because there is NO O-LINE and John DeFilippo continues to get blamed.”

    Minny’s Oline certainly helped the Pats D look pretty good last weekend. Hopefully that gives the Pats defenders an additional dose of confidence as they face tougher teams in the playoffs.

  55. So the Vikings beat the terrible Packers at home and everything was fine, but now that they lost at New England, where Tom Brady was 32-4 in December, the sky is falling? This is an above average team that couldn’t beat the Rams, Saints, Patriots, and Bears. I think they have a pretty good chance to win at Seattle. Win the next three and you’re probably playing for the division title at home against the Bears in Week 17. Fivethirtyeight.com gives the Vikings a 60% chance of making the playoffs. It’s far from over.

  56. It’s one thing to fail due to unexpected and significant across-the-board injuries, combined with newbys trying to fill this roles, your starting quarterback hobbled for half the season, and yawn-inspiring and predictable play-calling………like the Packers.

    It’s quite another to have your guaranteed SuperBowl appearance trashed after entering the season with a vaunted defense, a new offense improved (stratospherically) beyond imagination, and a fanbase gleefully excited to show off their recently “mastered” two-handed, overhead, self-given, high-five……..like the Vikings.

It’s far from over.

    You are right. If Vikings can beat the seahawks and win out, they can be playing for the division against the bears if they lose another game. That would be a great game and would enter the playoffs on fire just like the Giants against the Patriots. It’s definitely possible IF they beat Seattle and cousins elevates his game. Imagine if Denver gets in the playoffs and they get to the Super Bowl with keenum to play against cousins and the vikings. That would be an awesome storyline and a great game.

    So the Vikings beat the terrible Packers at home and everything was fine, but now that they lost at New England, where Tom Brady was 32-4 in December, the sky is falling?

    If the Vikings can beat the Seahawks and win out? You guys are insane.

  59. “It’s definitely possible IF they beat Seattle and cousins elevates his game.”

    That’s hilarious. Especially the Cousins part. Isn’t he 5-16 against winning teams in his career or something along those lines? He’s not going to “elevate” anything at this point, he’ about as good as he’s ever going to be.

    Because players that change teams always have the exact same results and record with their new team? I wonder why they even bother to play the games anymore.

    It’s one thing to fail due to unexpected and significant across-the-board injuries, combined with newbys trying to fill this roles, your starting quarterback hobbled for half the season, and yawn-inspiring and predictable play-calling………like the Packers.

    I guess you got just about every excuse in there except blaming the refs for your $33 mil QB winning 4 games in 12 starts. Shouldn’t you already be talking about glory days gone by? Buy another sheet of company “stock” for $250. That’ll get you through the dead cold winter.

  62. Pack would lose to 24 -32 on this list. They proved that last week…

    And the vikings DID get blown out at home by #25 on this list.

    Nobody cares what you think. If the Packers had an undefeated 19-0 season you’d still be copy and pasting this garbage every week. Of course you’re not deterred by the fact that they already beat #25 and #31.

  64. 13. Broncos (6-6; No. 17): Vance Joseph has earned a third year in Denver.

    LOL as much as I hate to see this team win against anyone, I realize its best for them to end with a 7-9/8-8 type record. smellway cant draft his way out of a paperbag, and its tough to miss with a top 5 pick- although chubb is not that impressive.
    so yeah. keep joseph another year, or 5, and keep that mediocre qb you are overpaying – and I will keep enjoying your average to below average records!

  65. 23. Giants (4-8; No. 27): They never quit, except when trying to field an onside kick.
    ======================================================================================
    Too funny.

  66. 10. Ravens (7-5; No. 13): This is the team that should be keeping Bill Belichick up at night.

    I think you are confusing the Suggs/Weddle Ravens D with the Lewis/Reed Ravens D. No way are the Goat and BB losing sleep over this Ravens team

    As a Broncos fan living in Minneapolis that is my dream every year!
