NFL power rankings Week 13: Seahawks take over No. 1 spot


Following the latest wild week of NFL action, we have another shake up in the updated power rankings. The Denver Broncos dropped a close overtime game to the New England Patriots, which knocked them out of the top spot, and opened the door for the Seattle Seahawks to take over the No. 1 spot.

The NFC holds the top two spots entering Week 3, while the top two contenders in the AFC — Denver and New England — occupy the No. 3 and No. 4 spots.

On the opposite end of the rankings, the Atlanta Falcons finally completed their drop to the bottom, as they hold up the rear at No. 32.

Where does your team stand in the latest rankings?

    I do have a problem ranking Carolina below NE. Other than that I think these are about as accurate as any pr. Geaux Saints. Dec 2. Cant wait!

    Interesting: 16 beat 6,8,11 &13;

    lost to 4, 20, 22, 26, 29 & 30

      And 10 just absolutely kicked the stuffing out of #8.
      Unfortunately at this point in the season it is literally impossible to rank according to head-to-head match ups,

      I’d quibble that #3 just got nearly the absolute minimal victory over #4 (I guess safety in OT with less than 2 minutes would be the absolute minimal victory), and all that with home field and a very lucky bounce on special teams, but who am I to quibble so.

    Interesting, the Jags beat Houston and have the same record but yet they are one behind Houston. How can that be? How can you beat someone, have the same record and be behind them? What is this the BCS?

      But it’s the Jags..:)
