Week 15 Power Rankings

  1. New Orleans Saints: The Saints aren’t the powerhouse team everyone thought they were, but if the playoffs run through New Orleans, I don’t see them losing.
  2. Chicago Bears: This defense can go toe to toe with any offense and shut it down, which is made more impressive when you look at how powerful the Rams’ offense is.
  3. Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs’ offense will take a hit without Kareem Hunt, but Ware and Williams are decent replacements to have.
  4. L.A. Rams: The Rams controlled their destiny and had the number one seed in their hands, but they just didn’t play well enough to keep that one seed.
  5. L.A. Chargers: The Chargers handled the beat-up Bengals and walked away with the win, although it wasn’t a very pretty win.
  6. Dallas Cowboys: Dak Prescott is a different player with Amari Cooper and the Cowboys are a different team with this version of Dak.
  7. New England Patriots: The Patriots seem to always lose in Miami, so I’m not worried about this team come playoffs.
  8. Houston Texans: The win streak ends to a good Colts team, but the Texans could still make serious noise in the post season.
  9. Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks defense is so incredibly good, and the offense runs the ball very well. This team is a threat to everyone they encounter.
  10. Baltimore Ravens: If Flacco played against the Chiefs, it would’ve been a blowout, but with Lamar Jackson they actually stood a chance.
  11. Indianapolis Colts: They knocked off the hottest team in football, and with their defense and offense playing at the level it is, I could see them winning some January games.
  12. Pittsburgh Steelers: This team just can’t be consistent, and that’s why they aren’t winning a Super Bowl this year.
  13. Miami Dolphins: It took a miracle to force my hand, but here you go Miami. You are a fringe wild card team.
  14. Cleveland Browns: The Browns have beaten some bad teams recently, and lost big to a good team, so I’m not sure if the team is average or bad. Time will tell.
  15. Tennessee Titans: Wow that run game is dominant.
  16. Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings can’t run the ball, they can’t throw the ball, and they can’t beat good teams.
  17. Green Bay Packers: The Rodgers Revenge Tour starts now, though it will mean nothing.
  18. Carolina Panthers: This team just collapsed over the past two months.
  19. Denver Broncos: Emmanuel Sanders going down ended the Broncos season. He was just too important to Case Keenum.
  20. Detroit Lions: I know they won, but it is out of the question to replace Matt Stafford?
  21. Philadelphia Eagles: Philly talked crap all offseason, writing books and bragging about how much fun they had winning the Super Bowl, and they looked mediocre all season. They have a chance to take control of the division, they talk crap about Dallas, and they lose. Comedy GOLD!
  22. Atlanta Falcons: This team misses Kyle Shanahan.
  23. Cincinnati Bengals: The Bengals were in that game without Andy Dalton, but with him in, I bet they would’ve lost even worse.
  24. Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen has some real playmaking potential, but he can be too loose with the ball. I’m excited to see how his career plays out.
  25. San Francisco 49ers: I was going to lose all my fantasy playoff games this week, but then George Kittel went OFF.
  26. Oakland Raiders:
  27. New York Giants: Don’t let that blowout make you forget how bad Eli Manning looked earlier this year.
  28. Arizona Cardinals: Rosen looks alright I guess.
  29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Buccaneers almost swept the Saints this season, but they let the Saints come back and blew their lead.
  30. Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jags gave up how many yards rushing? Well at least Jalen Ramsey can still call Mariota trash.
  31. New York Jets: The Jets will always be a year or two away.
  32. Washington Redskins: This team stinks without Alex Smith.
