FINAL 2014 NFL POWER RANKINGS: Ravens and Panthers in the Tournament

NFLTeams

The 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.

This week the top 8 teams consist of the four NFC and four AFC teams that I expect to still be standing after the first round of playoffs next week. Teams 9-12 are the teams that I think will lose in the wildcard round.

Eight of the teams that I had in the top 12 for week one this season, made it into the post season. Biggest surprises for me were how far the Saints fell and I must admit the Steelers and Cowboys were better than I expected.
