NFL POWER RANKINGS WEEK 10: Seahawks and Colts power their way into top 12.

All 32 NFL teams ranked after week 9. Previous week.

The Twist: Each week my top 12 ranked teams will consist of 6 NFC teams and 6 AFC teams since 6 from each conference will qualify for the post season. I reflect the top 12 teams most likely to make the playoffs each week.

SEAHAWKS: The Seahawks defeated the Vikings to power their way into the top 12 at #11. That second wildcard spot in the NFC is very much up for grabs and the spot could change weekly from now until week 16. But for now the Seahawks appear to be the team worthy of the spot.

COLTS: Led by rookie QB Andrew Luck, the Colts defeated the Dolphins to move up to the #12 spot. Right now the Colts are actually in a position to claim an AFC wildcard spot. Of course a lot of football remains to be played.

GIANTS: The Giants lost at home to the Steelers and moved down 2 spots. The Giants still look like the best team in the NFC East.
