NFP Power Rankings

National Football Post

Every week, the National Football Post brings you our NFL Power Rankings: a breakdown of how we stack up the league.

1. (1) Houston Texans (10-1): The Texans beat the Lions on Thanksgiving to win their second OT game in a span of five days.

2. (2) San Francisco 49ers (8-2-1): Isn’t it obvious that the Niners are much more tougher team to game plan for with Colin Kaepernick at QB?

3. (3) Atlanta Falcons (10-1): Hard to knock the Falcons for winning games—even if they find ways to sneak by at the end.

4. (5) Denver Broncos (8-3): Ugly win in K.C., but the Broncos keep rolling.

Ray Rice
US PRESSWIRE4th and 29? That's not a problem for Ray Rice and the Ravens.

5. (7) Baltimore Ravens (9-2): The effort from Ray Rice was awesome on the 4th and 29 play to save the Ravens out in San Diego.

6. (8) New England Patriots (8-3): That was too easy vs. the Jets on Thanksgiving night.

7. (12) New York Giants (7-4): Are the Giants back? Sure looked like it on Sunday night vs. the Packers.

8. (9) Chicago Bears (8-3): The Bears are a different team when they have Jay Cutler under center.

9. (5) Green Bay Packers (7-4): Someone needs to help out Aaron Rodgers, right?

10. (17) Cincinnati Bengals (6-5): The Bengals are playing their best football of the season.

11. (8) Seattle Seahawks (6-5): How can the Seahawks be so tough at home and look so average on the road?

12. (11) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-5): The Bucs saw their four game winning streak come to an end in the loss to the Falcons.

13. (15) Indianapolis Colts (7-4): The story of the Colts season keeps getting better.

14. (10) Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5): If the Steelers don’t get Roethlisberger back soon their season could slip away.

15. (14) New Orleans Saints (5-6): Tough loss at home to the 49ers with a trip to Atlanta on the schedule this Thursday night.

16. (18) Washington Redskins (5-6): RG3 vs. the Giants this Monday night? That’s good TV.

17. (13) Minnesota Vikings (6-5): The Vikings passing attack is really suspect without Percy Harvin in the lineup.

18. (16) Dallas Cowboys (5-6): The Cowboys secondary didn’t have an answer for RG3 and the Redskins.

19. (18) Detroit Lions (4-7): Weren’t the Lions a playoff favorite back in August?

20. (25) Miami Dolphins (5-6): The win at home vs. the Seahawks keeps the Dolphins in the AFC discussion for now.
