December 3rd, 2013 - 6:39 pm

Here’s a look at my NFL power rankings for Week 14 of the 2013 season.

RANK. TEAM NAME (PREVIOUS RANK)(RECORD)

  1. Denver Broncos (1)(10-2) β€” Defeated division rival Chiefs again and maintain top spot.
  2. Seattle Seahawks (2)(11-1) β€” Have NFL’s best record but I still question them on the road.
  3. New England Patriots (4)(9-3) β€” Went toe to toe with one of the league’s worst teams and just barely beat the Texans.
  4. Carolina Panthers (5)(9-3) β€” Move up a spot after taking down the Bucs.
  5. New Orleans Saints (3)(9-3) β€” Got pounded on the road by the Seahawks.
  6. Kansas City Chiefs (6)(9-3) β€” That’s three straight losses for the once 9-0 Chiefs, for those of you keeping track at home.
  7. San Francisco 49ers (7)(8-4) β€” Took down a feisty Rams team.
  8. Philadelphia Eagles (8)(7-5) β€” Continue to role with Nick Foles at the helm.
  9. Cincinnati Bengals (9)(8-4) β€” Slipped past the Chargers on the road.
  10. Dallas Cowboys (10)(7-5) β€” Outlasted the Raiders on Thanksgiving.
  11. Indianapolis Colts (13)(8-4) β€” Snuck past the Titans in a close one.
  12. Detroit Lions (14)(7-5) β€” Obliterated the rival Packers on Thanksgiving.
  13. Arizona Cardinals (11)(7-5) β€” Good team, lost to a better Eagles club.
  14. St. Louis Rams (12)(5-7) β€” A tough team with an edge but not enough talent to beat the Niners.
  15. Baltimore Ravens (16)(6-6) β€” Just barely knocked off the Steelers on Thanksgiving night.
  16. Miami Dolphins (18)(6-6) β€” Pounded a hapless Jets team.
  17. Chicago Bears (15)(6-6) β€” Clinging to the middle of the pack due to wealth on offense and a load of garbage teams below them.
  18. San Diego Chargers (17)(5-7) β€” Not enough offense to take down the Bengals.
  19. New York Giants (21)(5-7) β€” Still trying to keep the fight alive for the postseason after an 0-6 start to the season.
  20. Tennessee Titans (19)(5-7) β€” They show some talent from time to time, but just not enough against the better teams. Lost to Colts.
  21. Pittsburgh Steelers (20)(5-7) β€” Mike Tomlin’s guys are β€œtripping” over themselves.
  22. Green Bay Packers (22)(5-6-1) β€” Without a quarterback, this team’s weaknesses are horribly exposed.
  23. Minnesota Vikings (29)(3-8-1) β€” Never stopped fighting against a lazy Bears team. Still a bad football team, though.
  24. New York Jets (23)(5-7) β€” They have very little offense as of late. Hard to win without a quarterback.
  25. Washington Redskins (24)(3-9) β€” Couldn’t keep up with division rival Giants.
  26. Cleveland Browns (25)(4-8) β€” Latest victim of the surging Jaguars.
  27. Atlanta Falcons (31)(3-9) β€” Just managed to edge the Bills on the road in overtime.
  28. Buffalo Bills (26)(4-8) β€” Dropped by the Falcons in overtime.
  29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (27)(3-9) β€” Couldn’t keep their streak going in a loss to the Panthers.
  30. Oakland Raiders (28)(4-8) β€” The Cowboys were just a bit too much for them on Thanksgiving.
  31. Jacksonville Jaguars (32)(3-9) β€” They’ve moved up a spot after two victories in a row and three of their last four.
  32. Houston Texans (30)(2-10) β€” We have a new cellar dweller.
