Week 14 NFL Power Rankings: Eagles Regain Top Spot, Bengals & Cowboys Continue To Surge!
Week 13 is officially in the books, and we see a ton of changes in the NFL Power Rankings. Let’s take a look at how things shook out and where everybody ranks heading into Week 14.
Week 14 NFL Power Rankings
32 Houston Texans (1-10-1)
Saying anything else about the Texans just feels like piling on at this point.
31 Chicago Bears (3-10)
It’s the same story every week with the Bears. Justin Fields is electric to watch, but he struggles to throw the ball and the team never wins.
30 Las Angeles Rams (3-9)
This has to be the worst defending Super Champion team ever. What a disaster.
29 Denver Broncos (3-9)
We would love to drop the Broncos further because this offense may be the worst in the league. Their defense is the only thing that’s keeping them in the top 30. They lost another 10-9 game to the Ravens last week.
28 Carolina Panthers (4-8)
Mercifully we all got a break from watching the Panthers last week during their bye. They still managed to drop a spot.
27 New Orleans Saints (4-9)
Their fourth-quarter collapse against the Bucs on Monday night was a massive swing for the Saints. Had they won they’d probably be ranked about 21 and have a shot to be on top of the division next week when the rankings come out. Nonetheless, they lost and their season is essentially over.
26 Indianapolis Colts (4-8-1)
That Jeff Saturday success story was fun for that one week. This team is a mess and they won’t be turning things around this week against the Vikings.
25 Jacksonville Jaguars (4-8)
Despite this year being a step in the right direction for the Jags, a beatdown from the Lions last week served as a reminder of just how far away they still are.
24 Arizona Cardinals (4-8)
The Cardinals stayed put during their bye week.
23 Green Bay Packers (5-8)
The Packers are still terrible. They just aren’t as terrible as the Bears.
22 Las Vegas Raiders (5-7)
Even since falling out of the top 30 in the Power Rankings, the Raiders have gone on a winning streak. They are still bad. Just not as bad as they were a month ago.
21 Cleveland Browns (5-7)
The Browns managed to beat the Texans last week despite DeShaun Watson looking awful in his NFL return. If they were playing anyone but the Texans the Browns probably lose that game.
20 Atlanta Falcons (5-8)
The Falcons fall to 20 in the rankings and their loss to the Steelers last week is a major blow to their playoff hopes.
19 Pittsburgh Steelers (5-7)
We’ve been saying this for weeks now. The Steelers aren’t great but they are going to be a tough team to beat. All of a sudden it doesn’t look impossible that Mike Tomlin keeps his streak of not finishing below .500 alive.
18 Detroit Lions (5-7)
The Lions have taken a big step this year separating themselves from the bad teams in the league. They are playing good teams tough and beating the bad teams. They crushed the Jags last week.
17 Las Angeles Chargers (6-6)
The Chargers stink, the AFC West outside of the Chiefs stink, and no matter how much we want him to be Justin Herbert proves week in and week out he’s not the next great quarterback we thought he was. He’s got all the physical gifts in the world but when it comes down to the wire, he’s just not a winner. This high-priced defense isn’t helping matters either.
16 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-6)
The Bucs staved off disaster on Monday Night Football by completing an improbable comeback at the end of the fourth quarter. They went from potentially losing control of the division to having what looks like a commanding lead in the unfortunate NFC South.
15 Seattle Seahawks (7-5)
The Seahawks knocked off the lowly Rams last week but didn’t do anything to inspire any confidence in their playoff prospects.
14 New York Giants (7-4-1)
The Giants tied last week. That shouldn’t be a thing and the NFL needs to fix it. Still, it was pretty big for them as far as ties go.
13 New York Jets (7-5)
The Jets lost to the Vikings last week but stay put in the rankings because they played them down to the wire. Regardless, this defense is showing cracks and they don’t have a starting quarterback on their roster.
12 New England Patriots (6-6)
The Patriots continue to show they don’t belong in the conversation with the better teams in the league. They will beat bad teams and lose to good teams because that’s who they are.
11 Washington Commanders (7-5-1)
The Commanders jumped up a spot this week despite their winning streak ending due to a tie.
10 Tennessee Titans (7-5)
The Titans got destroyed by the Eagles last week. They are always a tough team but continue to run into the same issue they always do. Tennessee always looks like a contender until they inevitably don’t in a game like this. It will be the same old story in the playoffs.
9 Baltimore Ravens (8-4)
The Ravens continue to beat bad teams despite looking awful doing it week after week. It would be a surprise if the Bengals didn’t win the AFC North at this point. Another injury to Lamar Jackson probably doesn’t help matter either. Or even worse, maybe it does.
8 San Francisco 49ers (8-4)
We don’t want to drop a team after a big win against a tough team. However, losing their starting quarterback for the remainder of the season really puts a damper on this win and removes them from serious contention for a championship.
7 Miami Dolphins (8-4)
The Dolphins looked bad on Sunday without both of their starting offensive tackles. Tua suffered his first real loss of the season and Miami will have to bounce back against the Chargers this week. This was a big fall.
6 Cincinnati Bengals (8-4)
The Bengals make a jump after knocking off Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. When you beat the MVP favorite and topped ranked team you’re going to start climbing.
5 Dallas Cowboys (9-3)
Dallas beat the brakes off the Colts on Sunday Night Football to climb to the five spot. This team once again looks like the real deal in early December.
4 Buffalo Bills (9-3)
The Bills finally started to look like the Bills we saw in September on Thursday Night Football for the first time in a long time. Currently, they sit as the top seed in the AFC.
3 Kansas City Chiefs (9-3)
The Chiefs suffered another loss to the Bengals last week, but they still have the MVP and best quarterback in the league. We can’t drop them out of the top three.
2 Minnesota Vikings (10-2)
The Vikings don’t feel like they should be No. 2 but looking at their resume it’s hard to make a case against it. They have a real shot to get the one seed in the NFC.
1 Philadelphia Eagles (11-1)
A Chiefs loss and a blowout of an always-tough Titans team propel the Eagles back into the top spot.
