NFL Power Rankings Week 16: Patriots Back on Top with Two Games Left

NFLTeamsThe Twist: Each week the 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 therefore indicating the top 12 teams most likely to currently make the playoffs. One NFC team and one AFC team occupy the top two spots to reflect who may end up in the super bowl. At least one team from each division is represented in the top 12.

TOP 12:
The Packers offense was grounded in Buffalo and it drops the Packers out of the top spot. If the Packers can play at home throughout the post season, they will be fine but if they go on the road, it may not go well.

By winning in Philadelphia, the Dallas Cowboys move into the top 12 teams and in first place in the NFC East. The game with the Colts this week is a must win for them to win the East. The Eagles lurk at #13 ready to pounce if the Cowboys should stumble.

A win by the Ravens combined with a loss by the Chargers, moves the Ravens into the top 12 teams and bumps the Chargers out.
