Week 13 power rankings

AP

1. Ravens (9-2; last week No. 1): When asking whether they’re peaking too soon, it’s also fair to ask whether they haven’t peaked yet.

2. 49ers (10-1; No. 4): Sure, they face a tough schedule. The teams that will be facing them have it even tougher.

3. Seahawks (9-2; No. 2): The No. 1 seed or the No. 5 seed continues to hinge on Week 17 vs. the 49ers.

4. Patriots (10-1; No. 3): A Super Bowl berth hinges eventually on the ability to contain Lamar Jackson.

5. Saints (9-2; No. 5): If they’re going to be screwed by the pass interference replay process, it’s better that it happen now than later.

6. Vikings (8-3; No. 7): A win in Seattle, as unlikely as it would be, would propel the Vikings into the bye-week conversation.

7. Packers (8-3; No. 6): They should never play a game in California again.

8. Chiefs (7-4; No. 8): Andy Reid’s teams thrive after the bye; the real question is whether a win over the Raiders can be followed by a win over the Patriots.

9. Texans (7-4; No. 12): Two weeks after a potential signature win became a blowout loss, the Texans have another shot at a signature win.

10. Bills (8-3; No. 9): They’ll likely get to the playoffs; can they win once the playoffs start?

11. Steelers (6-5; No. 15): If someone from the Browns tries to hit Devlin Hodges over the head with his own helmet, hopefully he will quickly lower his head in an effort to avoid the blow.

12. Titans (6-5; No. 16): The most boring team in football is quickly becoming anything but.

13. Cowboys (6-5; No. 11): If they lose to Buffalo at home on Thanksgiving, Black Friday may have a much different meaning for Jason Garrett.

14. Raiders (6-5; No. 10): Playoffs or not, Derek Carr may not actually be living in that house he’s building in Las Vegas.

15. Colts (6-5; No. 14): They’ll be a dangerous playoff team if they make it; it’s still not clear whether they’ll make it.

16. Browns (5-6; No. 19): Maybe they’ll make it to the playoffs after all.

17. Rams (6-5; No. 13): Maybe they won’t make it to the playoffs after all.

18. Eagles (5-6; No. 17): Maybe they’ll regret signing Carson Wentz.

19. Panthers (5-6; No. 18): Maybe they’ll regret keeping Joey Slye.

20. Bears (5-6; No. 21): Maybe they’ll stop being asked why they didn’t take Patrick Mahomes in 2017 and instead be asked why they didn’t take Lamar Jackson in 2018.

21. Jets (4-7; No. 25): Maybe they’d be a contender if they didn’t have so many tough games in September and October.

22. Buccaneers (4-7; No. 27): Maybe Jameis Winston will do enough to get another year where the constant question will be whether he should get another year.

23. Chargers (4-7; No. 22): By beating Lamar Jackson in the 2018 playoffs, the Chargers finally have something they can hold over the Rams.

24. Jaguars (4-7; No. 20): The Super Bowl window has been slammed shut and boarded up.

25. Falcons (3-8; No. 23): It’ll take more than $2 hot dogs to get people to show up on Thanksgiving night.

26. Broncos (3-8; No. 24): When will they leave the starting job to the guy who looks like the star of Leave It To Beaver?

27. Lions (3-7-1; No. 26): It’s no surprise that a team with six decades of dysfunction wouldn’t realize the benefit of giving an effort to finally change things more than two years to take root.

28. Cardinals (3-7-1; No. 28): Patrick Mahomes in 2018, Lamar Jackson in 2019 . . . Kyler Murray in 2020?

29. Washington (2-9; No. 31): Far more surprising than Dwayne Haskins‘ decision to take a selfie with fans is that fans were actually there to take selfies with.

30. Dolphins (2-9; No. 29): They’re going to regret those two wins in April.

31. Giants (2-9; No. 30): The Giants could be the third NFC East team looking for a new coach in January.

32. Bengals (0-11; No. 32): They definitely wouldn’t be 0-11 if Marvin Lewis was still the coach.

  1. But, but, but…..the Packers have the tie breaker!!!!
    If the Vikings win at Seattle, the Packers are the Wildcard.

    BTW: the Seahawks are 3-2 at home and give up more points than almost any other team with a winning record. Oh, and they have won numerous close games against garbage teams. Seattle is a lot closer to .500 than they are to getting a bye.

  2. My Super Bowl LIV prediction is the Saints and Patriots. It always seems to be the teams that don’t get a whole lot of attention in the months of November and December. It’s all about getting hot at the right time .

    Seahawks have had the toughest schedule in the NFL. Their D has been getting better each week. And they have an MVP calibre QB. But keep underestimating them.

  4. The Chiefs at 8. I wouldn’t be surprised if they are the team that is quietly sliding by just to get healthy and explode at the right time. As confident as Baltimore is about a rematch with New England, they must be equally concerned about a rematch with KC.

  5. A 9-2 team ahead of two 10- teams???

    They crushed the Rams for Pete’s sakes, not like they beat a REAL team!

  6. I don’t see how you can leap-frog Hawks over the Pats for any reason. After Pats #3 it should be Saints #4 and Hawks #5 anyway – as Saints already beat Hawks and Brees is back again.

    After beating Seattle, looks like Vikings make top 3 then.

    =====

    Doesn’t matter where the Vikings are ranked, they are complete frauds with Kirk Cousins. Stop Dalvin Cook, pressure the 2nd string QB Cousins and the Vikings are done. The Vikings losing streak begins Sunday.

  8. The Cowboys aren’t going anywhere this season…all that talent and consistent underachievers. #1 offense in yards per game, #6 in points per game. Defensively, #6 in yards allowed, #7 in points allowed per game. Yet stuck there at 6-5, and IF they make the playoffs (not a given with the cupcake schedule the Eagles have the rest of the way) they will quickly be bounced from the tournament. What is the one constant with their inability to become one of the elite teams in the league? Hmmm…I hear some clapping in the distance…

  9. You’re right. The Bengals would probably be at a mediocre 4-7 and on their way to middle of the pack draft pick. The Bengal’s spin would be the lack of AJ Green and other injuries are the reason for the seven losses and we should just stay the course.

    Marvin would also resign Dalton in the offseason and he’d magically take up all the cap space and preclude us from being active in free agency. The Bengals mantra is always and will always be planning for the future and never win now.

    —–

    The toughest schedule!? Bengals, Cardinals, Steelers, Eagles, Bucs, Rams, Browns, Falcons, 49ers, Saints and Ravens. 3 of those were tough games. They lost 2. What about those opponents look tough? Don’t let the fact that they struggled with all of those bad teams fool you.

  11. “Dolphins (2-9; No. 29): They’re going to regret those two wins in April.”

    Not really. Didn’t both Mahomes and Jackson fall below the top 5 picks in their drafts? Pre draft analysis of players is and always has been a far from exact science. They could hit just as easily on a #3 or #5 pick as at #1 or #10.

  12. Ravens look great, better hope they win the SB this before teams have the time to figure them out. It usually takes a season, happened to Vick, happened to KC and it will happen to Jackson. I can’t stand the Ravens but it’s fun to watch this kid play.

  13. It’s cute seeing Viking fans still focused on the Packers when it’s clear that any NFC team going to the Super Bowl is going to have to beat the 49ers.

    But Viking fans have never been known to have high expectations, so it’s understandable.

  14. These look fair — I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the Vikings beat Russell Wilson, and can’t exactly say I’m expecting it to change this weekend. Hopefully they put on a better prime-time show than the pathetic regurgitated messes thrown out there by the Packers and Rams on prime-time last week.

  15. Man, do I ever not care about power rankings, but I do find it interesting that the perception of the Bills is still that they’re a pretender.

    I think that team can beat anybody in the AFC. The D has always been legit, and the offense is starting to click as Allen develops & the team gets more chemistry (practically the whole O was new this year).

    They’re still within a stone’s throw of the division. It’s unlikely, but all it takes is one Pats loss for that game at Gillette in December to be very interesting.

    I guess CRUSHING the Pats 37-20 escaped your memory.

  17. 18. Eagles (5-6; No. 17): Maybe they’ll regret signing Carson Wentz.

    _________________________________________________

    Even if people think they should have kept Nick Foles, I’ll never understand what people saw in Wentz in 2017. He had a great offensive line, a good receiving corps, John DeFilippo as his quarterback’s coach, a good pass rush, and Frank Reich as the offensive coordinator. The team was loaded. Wentz was drafted out of North Dakota State. It’s not like he was taken out of LSU or Alabama. This should raise some red flags.

  18. But, but, but…..the Packers have the tie breaker!!!!

    Umm, these are rankings not standings, and if you were to check the standings you’d see we are still at the top of the division. Your last statement is also incorrect. If Vikes win in Seattle they’re still the WC as long as the Pack wins as well. Nice try though.

  19. The Seahawks have won 24 of their last 26 night games at home. That’s a .923 winning percentage. Kirk Cousins is 0-7 on Monday nights in his career. I don’t care how good either team may or may not be right now, it is very unlikely that the Vikings will come out of there with a win. If they do, it will be a gigantic upset and should change perceptions in a big way.

  20. How did the Saints get screwed by the PI replay process this time??
    Looked like blatant PI to me….and to the expert on TV. And the rest of America outside of Louisiana.

    Lions have 1 playoff win in the super bowl era. Not Staffords fault

  24. Since Rodgers refused to go to a hurry up in the 2nd half and instead insisted on holding the ball too long its become clear who has won the question of who is calling the plays in Green Bay. It looks like they are at the top of their slide even with their easy schedule. (unless they get more home cooking)

    For as much talk around how weak the league is overall, the top half dozen teams are totally legit.

    ______________________________________________________

    Don’t be a prisoner of the moment. The only two super bowl contenders in the AFC are the Patriots and Ravens. Teams like the Colts, Texans, and Chiefs have not proven much of anything. Kansas City’s offensive line is injury-ridden. In the NFC, it could very well be the Saints or 49ers in the super bowl. It is certainly the much more interesting conference. The Packers just proved to everyone that they are just slightly above average. No one should be sold on the Vikings as well. I remember how bad this team played like it was yesterday. If the Seahawks can continue to play better defensively, they belong in the same conversation as the Saints and 49ers.

  26. Pats at 4? I’m fine with that. It’s just a power ranking, and there are a few tweaks needed to the offense right now. Things should start looking better soon with Wynn back and when Sanu returns. Ravens at 1, sure, they’re playing the best. Hat’s off to the mid-season wonders. SF at 2 makes sense as well, I think they’re just behind the Ravens atm. 3 is irrelevant. Again, just a power ranking, doesn’t affect the games.

  27. bunkmcnulty says:
    November 26, 2019 at 12:11 pm
    Ravens…is there anything higher than #1?

    ————————-+
    #4 is higher. Its yours if you want to swap.

  28. Bills are a pretender I would bet they won’t win another game. They beat no one good softest 8 and 3 I’ve seen in a while. Josh Allen can’t beat a good team with his in accuracy

  29. As a Ravens fan, it’s nice that for once in the franchise’s history, they’re the national sexy team. However, being that we won our 2 Super Bowls as a Wild Card, I’m concerned because it’s not often that the sexy team wins or even makes it to the Super Bowl. Just look at the last 5 years.

    2018-2019 Chiefs, lost to Patriots in AFCC
    2017-2018 Steelers, lost to Patriots in AFCC
    2016-2017 Patriots, beat Atlanta in SB (But it’s the Patriots, a proven dynasty, and ATL put up the greatest choke job in history)
    2015-2016 Panthers, lost to Denver in SB
    2014-2015 Packers, lost to Cardinals in Div Rnd

    Even in 2012 when the Ravens won the Super Bowl, the Broncos and Peyton Manning were the sexy team and the Ravens went into Mile High and snatched it. As a Ravens fan, I’m definitely not celebrating yet. Although, I’m enjoying the ride as we Ravens’ fans haven’t been here before. Definitely the most fun I’ve ever had watching the Ravens. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  30. Last year the Patriots had to contain Mahomes, how’d that go? Next year it’ll be Tua or some other spring chicken.

    The Pats do just enough to win cause they’re saving their best for when they really need it.

  31. Pay no attention to the Bills..none at all….see you in the Playoffs when we come in to your house and walk out with a W. The next two weeks are telling for Buffalo, but we’re quietly getting better and IF you actually watch the games you see performance outta the skill positions thats better than we started the season with….Allens throws are on point and he’s making much more difficult throws week in and week out…but nevermind us….. we’re just chugging to 11-5 or better

    The Dolphins, Titans, Steelers, Jaguars, and Lions beat the Patriots last season as well. Let’s see them beat New England in Foxborough. Please excuse the intelligent people who are not sold on picking a college offense being led by the second coming of Cam Newton playing quarterback to make it to the super bowl. The Ravens still lost to the Browns and Chiefs. I remember watching Lamar throw three interceptions against the Steelers in their overtime win and two picks against the Browns.

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

    A couple weeks back a Niners’ fan made essentially the same point.

  36. November power rankings mean virtually nothing. I can’t stand the Patriots but would be reticent to pick against them in the playoffs.

  37. Patriots give a spanking to rankings. Lets see how far ratings get you in January. Patriots ignore the noise and play hard for 60 minutes or more every game. You have to beat the Dynasty and defending champions on the field after New Years or it does not matter one little bit. You do not become a champion listening to idiot analysts like Kellerman Parker and Wright or idiot former GM’s like Polian. Ignore the noise. Devise a brilliant game plan. Practice hard. Play hard. WIN.

    On to a seventh title.

  38. Love my niners and don’t want to discredit what they just did to a legit team, but I can’t help but feel Seattle and New Orleans are better. Hopefully we get that #1 seed and can avoid having to play both in the post season.

  39. Lions have 1 playoff win in the super bowl era. Not Staffords fault

    ______________________________________________

    Let’s re-evaluate your complete and total deflection of the reality of the Lions and Stafford.

    The Lions have one playoff win in 62 years, since 1957. That playoff win was with Barry Sanders in 1991. Ooooof very long time ago.

    Stafford has been on the Lions since 2009 and the Lions still can’t win a playoff game with the likes of Calvin Johnson and Ndamukong Suh both in their prime.

    Stafford is not a good QB, he fumbles and or throw INTs in critical games. He has flashes of good passing reads and ability at best.

    1/6 of the time the Lions have been bad which is a very very very long time, Stafford is 100% percent responsible for, three playoff losses under his belt due to turnovers.

    Stafford has ZERO playoff wins and the Lions have one in 62 years.

    You’re VERY wrong, but nice try.

    This team has everything still in front of it. They are ready to start the march to a division title and a high seed in the playoffs this Sunday in New York.

  48. Aaron Rodgers has never been able to win consistently on the road over his career.

    Rodgers is just 42-46 in his 88 all-time career road games. For reference, Tom Brady is 97-44 on the road, and Peyton Manning was 85-48.

    In fact, following last night’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers, Rodgers has now fallen to 0-7 when on the road against a team that is at least six games over .500.

    Judging by Rodgers further decline this year things are not looking good for the Packers

    Which quarter are you speaking of? Yes, Seattle’s home/road record is an anomaly this year; given their historical record over the last 8-10 years or so. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter how well you play as long as you have more points than your opponent when the game is over. We’re fix’n to find out though. Hopefully Seattle wins.

    I knew someone would get confused on my explanation of a football game. Seahawks fans obviously have the same intellect and football knowledge as Packer fans.

  53. Dallas hasn’t beaten a team with a winning record this season. And the Cowboys lost to the lowly Jets!

    Buffalo comes in at 8-3 for a Thanksgiving feast. Dallas at 6-5 really needs to step up. The Bills have a very good defense and an inspired offense.

    By the way, the only reason why Jason Garrett was hired as offensive coordinator, then promoted to head coach, was because he came off the third-string bench and threw five touchdowns to beat Green Bay on Thanksgiving Day in 1995. It was his singular accomplishment in the NFL. The asterisk on that victory though is that Brett Favre NEVER won a game at Texas Stadium. He couldn’t get over the hump on the field, lost every game he played there.

    Except this game will be played at AT&T Stadium, also known a Autonomic Trauma and Terror Stadium, or Jerry World, where the Cowboys have no home field advantage. Aaron Rodgers has never lost a game there. In fact, he came in against a 13-3 Cowboys team, with a division title, first-round bye and home field advantage, made up a play in the huddle and beat them. That’s what winning quarterbacks do.

    Now we have Jerry Jones finally or ultimately questioning his coaching staff. After last week’s loss to New England. Garrett was totally out couched by Belichick, whom Jones could have hired years ago. But didn’t, in his idiocy. He also could have promoted Sean Payton, but didn’t. Instead Payton went to New Orleans and built a championship team, won a Super Bowl, and are in contention for another. Something that Jones hasn’t been able to do since 1995, no matter who he hires as coaches.

    It is so tiresome, life as a Cowboys fan. It has gotten worse since Jerry became large and in charge. Dallas hasn’t won anything since.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, blah blah blah, three Super Bowls in four years don’t mean squat for a team that has not advanced past the divisional round of the playoffs since 1995.

    These Cowboys cannot beat a team with a winning record. Even if they improbably win the NFC East, who do you expect them to face in the playoffs? Teams with winning records. Against which they will lose.

    Jerry Jones is right; it all comes down to coaching. But he’s the one who hired all the coaches on the Cowboys staff to begin with. And they’re losers, much to his chagrin.

    It’s going to be an interesting game on Thursday.

  54. The only conversation about the Vikes post Seattle game will be that they still have some breathing room to make the post season. Given they usually are dead flat after a bye week, combined with how West Coast teams are beating up the NFC North this season, not to mention they still have three NFC North games….well, lets just say it’s a long way from a playoff lock at this junction.

    Can someone explain to me how exactly Minnesota will beat Seattle?
    ////////////////
    When the Seahawks line-up for a fieldgoal the Vikings are going to jump over the center and block it.
    Oh, wait, that’s against the rules.

  56. I think the Vikings are better than the Packers, maybe better than the Seahawks. But Russell Wilson at home on MNF? I would be really surprised if the Vikings get the win.

  57. Figure the Ravens out? Nothing to figure, stop the run and then stop the pass. No magic potion. Ask Wase Phillips and BB.

  58. Mitch Trubisky has thrown 3 TDs and close to 350 yards against the Lions in Detroit on Thanksgiving Day. How much worse does that make Duane Haskins look after going 13 of 29 for 156 against the Lions at home?
