2015 WEEK FOUR NFL RANKINGS: Colts Show Some Life

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

TOP 12 Teams:
The Colts show life by beating the Titans and move back into the top 12 teams. It’s not that they are playing great or anything but they play in such a weak division, they are likely to win it yet again.

Peterson exploded for 126 yards making me believe the Vikings are a contender for a playoff spot. At 2-1, they land at number 12 this week.

In Miami, the Bills destroyed the Dolphins and move up to number 10 as a possible playoff team. I’m not completely sold on the Bills yet, but games like this do get my attention.

2015 WEEK THREE NFL POWER RANKINGS: Jets soar into top 12.

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 Teams:
AFC- This week the Ravens fall to 0-2 and out of the top 12 teams. They are replaced by the Steelers who scored often against the 49ers.
The Jets soar into the top 12 with a 2-0 record and believe it or not, the Jaguars move up to number 11 after defeating the Dolphins. With the Colts struggling at 0-2, I like the chances of the Jags winning that division.

In the NFC, the Seahawks fall to 0-2 so they are barely in the top 12 teams at number 12. It’s not that I think they deserve to be in the top 12 currently, but when I look at the other NFC teams not in the top 12, none stand out as deserving either.

2015 WEEK TWO NFL POWER RANKINGS: Pats and Brady back in top spot

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.

TOP 12 Teams:

Thanks to a judge’s ruling, Brady is back and the Patriots take the top spot after taking care of the Steelers. In the AFC, the Steelers drop put of the top 12 teams and the Chiefs move into the top 12 after a convincing win over the Texans. After defeating the Eagles, the Falcons move into the top 12 and knock the Eagles out of the top 12.

Biggest Mover UP:

The Rams ,who I had ranked at the bottom, beat the Seahawks in OT and move up 12 spots to 20. While I knew they looked good on defense on paper at least, I wasn’t sure their offense would make the most of it but they were able to have success against the NFC defending champs.

Biggest Mover DOWN:

The Texans look like they should have a good defense but they are awful on offense with shaky QB play and their starting RB Foster still out with injury. They fall 9 spots down to 27, after getting man handled by the Chiefs at home. It was never even close.
