Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

0 1446

8.     9ebzja2zfeigaziee8y605aqp        Denver Broncos

Record: 8-5
Last Week: 6

Tough, tough loss this week by the reining Super Bowl champions. The Broncos are sitting at 3rd place in their division and right on the outskirts of that last wild card spot. The AFC has been really competitive this year and the AFC West is no different. Denver fans think about how great their defense is, but with how incapable their offense has been this year, if the defense makes one mistake, it could cost them the game. 

7.     cwuyv0w15ruuk34j9qnfuoif9        Detroit Lions

Record: 9-4
Last Week: 9

Matt Stafford has done wonders this year without the leading receiver he’s had his whole career. A lot of people, including myself, put Stafford’s success on Megatron’s shoulders, but this season, he is proving that he can do it all himself and doesn’t need a Decepticon to do all his work. The Lions have trailed in the 4th quarter 12 out of 13 games this year, but somehow have managed to still go 9-4. If that doesn’t speak to the MVP caliber season he is having, I don’t know what will. 

 

6.     919        New York Giants

Record: 9-4
Last Week: 8

No more JPP for at least the rest of the regular season, but this week showed that the Giants don’t need him to take down the NFL’s best team. New York is looking good heading down the stretch. With only three games left, the Giants are in a perfect position to grab a wild card spot. They still have a chance at taking the division, it all relies on how well Dallas finishes out the season.

5.     970        Pittsburgh Steelers

Record: 8-5
Last Week: 7

Le’Veon Bell is a machine, he set a franchise record for most run yards in a game this week with 236. Bell hasn’t been this successful since Christopher Walken had a fever. 

4.     g9mgk6x3ge26t44cccm9oq1vl        Oakland Raiders

Record: 9-3
Last Week: 2

Tough game for the Raiders on Thursday night. They would’ve gotten away with the W if it weren’t for that meddling ‘alleged’ camera wire. Oakland couldn’t get anything going against division rival, Kansas City Chiefs, who are now on top of the division. Raiders can still take the division with some wins in these last three games, at San Diego, home against the Colts and finish the season on the road in Denver.

3.     y71myf8mlwlk8lbgagh3fd5e0        New England Patriots

Record: 11-2
Last Week: 3

New England is getting their form back after losing to Seattle at home a couple weeks ago. With the GOAT at QB, you can never count out the Patriots. A tough test awaits them this week as they travel to Denver.

2.     406        Dallas Cowboys

Record: 11-2
Last Week: 1

People who are already calling for Dak to be benched probably think Apollo Creed was better than Rocky or that Ron Burgundy wouldn’t become the best darn anchorman in San Diego, it’s been one game and he’s a rookie. Give the kid a break, he’s still done more for your franchise this year than Romo has in the past five.

1.     857        Kansas City Chiefs

Record: 10-3
Last Week: 4

The Chiefs are looking like the best team in the NFL right now, after the Patriots lost Gronk and the Chiefs beat the surging Raiders, it looks like the Chiefs are the team to beat in the AFC. The Chiefs are leading the AFC West right now and could make a deep playoff push with the way their offense is clicking.
