Week 13 NFL Power Rankings

0 1594

8.     919        New York Giants

Record: 8-4
Last Week: 4

Tough week for New York, the Steelers took it to them this week and nothing seemed to be working on either side of the ball for this team. The Giants play Dallas this week in a rematch of the only game that Dallas has lost this year. New York owns an 8-4 record and the 1st wild card spot, right now we’re looking at a Sherman v Julio or a Sherman v OBJ divisional round, either way, color me excited. 

7.     970        Pittsburgh Steelers

Record: 7-5
Last Week: 9

The Steelers took it to New York this week and showed that Eli isn’t the best in clutch situations like most assumed he was. The Steeler defense held Eli to just 195 yards on 40 attempts and Odell managed 100 yards on 10 receptions. Pittsburgh has been on and off all year, but when they’re on, They’re on. If the Steelers make the playoffs, teams should be worried. All it takes is a breakout by Antonio here, a long run by Le’Veon there and you’re down 24.

6.     9ebzja2zfeigaziee8y605aqp        Denver Broncos

Record: 8-4
Last Week: 6

Paxton Lynch secured his first win as a starter in the NFL and what a game he played. He threw for 104 yards in a game where quick routes and runs were used the most. Denver will face New England, Kansas City and Oakland in their next 4 weeks.

5.     pfiobtreaq7j0pzvadktsc6jv        Seattle Seahawks

Record: 8-3-1
Last Week: 7

Football is a weird sport. One week Seattle is embarrassed in Tampa Bay by the 22nd ranked defense and the next week they make Carolina look like they don’t even belong in the league. Seattle’s playoff picture opened up a bit more with this win, but the loss of Earl Thomas is a devastating one to this defense. On a team of loudmouths, Earl is the silent defender, he let his play do the talking and shows nothing but respect afterwards.

4.     857        Kansas City Chiefs

Record: 9-3
Last Week: 5

Eric Berry accounted for 8 points this week, including the game winning pick-two when he intercepted Matt Ryan and returned it to the house to give the Chiefs the lead and ultimately the win. The pick-two was the first in the league since the rule was established before the season last year. Berry said in a post game interview that he “shed tears before and after the game” in his first homecoming in Atlanta since he beat Hodgkin lymphoma at Emory University in Atlanta two years ago.

3.     y71myf8mlwlk8lbgagh3fd5e0        New England Patriots

Record: 10-2
Last Week: 3

Tom Brady is the best QB in NFL history. He’s had the pieces around him for most of his career, but Brady has made the best of a poor situation these past few years, even winning a Super Bowl. He is now the winningest QB in NFL history to go along with all the other accolades he has garnered during his illustrious career.

2.     g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl        Oakland Raiders

Record: 9-2
Last Week: 2

Derek Carr is making a strong case for MVP this year. He has turned this Raiders team around and is the only QB in NFL history to throw a game winning touchdown pass in the 4th quarter or overtime in five games this year. Just when you think the Raiders are down and out, Carr can breathe life into even the worst of drives.

1.     406        Dallas Cowboys

Record: 11-1
Last Week: 1

Dallas is still the best team in the NFL. They have experienced the least amount of significant injuries and their team is coming together at the right time. This is Dak’s team and he has the talent to lead them into a deep playoff run, so far it seems like he has yet to be affected by the Cowboys’ playoff curse which is a good thing.
