NFL POWER RANKINGS WEEK 13: Texans, Falcons, and Ravens Survive Close Games

All 32 NFL teams ranked after week 12.

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.

TOP 12 Teams:

  • Top Five unchanged.
  • The top three teams barely win. The Texans, Falcons and Ravens stay at the top after surviving close games.

Steelers out of top 12 and Bengals in– Without Big Ben, I don’t like the Steelers chances of making the post season. Bengals move up to #10 and Steelers down to #13.

The Bengals have played well their last two games and appear to be putting it together to make a run at the playoffs again this year . Both teams are 6-5 and the Steelers won their only meeting but right now I think the Bengals have the edge. But if Ben returns, game on.

Seahawks– They hang on to #12 even after losing as the Bucs and Vikings failed to take advantage by losing too.
