Week 16 NFL Power Rankings: Broncos Stumble as Seahawks Roll

NFLTeams
A power ranking of all 32 NFL teams after week 14 play.

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.

Each week, I have one NFC team and one AFC team in the top two to reflect who may end up in the super bowl.

TOP 12:
Manning and the Broncos didn’t look into it as they fell to the Chargers on Thursday night.The Seahawks move back on top at #1 as they rolled over the Giants. I really like the Seahawks chances to represent the NFC in the super bowl.

Taking advantage of the Lions loss on MNF to the Ravens, the Bears move into the top 12 as the Lions drop down 4 spots to 15. The Lions hold a tie breaker advantage over the Bears by defeating them twice this year but for now, the Bears have a better record.
