NFL POWER RANKINGS: WEEK 17: Still a Couple Spots in the Post Season Available.

NFLTeams

All 32 NFL teams ranked.

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:
My top 12 teams remain the same this week with just the Redskins and Vikings holding on to spots that are not locked yet. The Redskins will need to defeat the Cowboys to win the East and the Vikings are being challenged by the Bears along with other teams as well. The Vikings play a Packers team next week that has little at stake in the game since they have clinched their division.

At this point I have a Falcons/Broncos super bowl but let’s see what happens next week. The last ranking will reflect the way I see it all ending in the post season.

The Texans are cooling off at the wrong time and I wouldn’t read too much into the beat down the Seahawks put on the 49ers. I don’t think the game had much meaning for the 49ers who will still win the division and lock up the 2nd spot in the NFC with a win over the pathetic Cardinals.
