NFL Power Rankings: Ranking the remaining playoff contenders


With a crazy Wild Card weekend of NFL action in the books, the NFL Playoff field is down to just eight teams. This weekend, the divisional round of the postseason will kick off as each team fights to secure a spot in the conference championship games.

The top two teams in the playoff field continue to be the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos, who had bye weeks to prepare for their upcoming games, while the San Francisco 49ers proved this weekend that they are among the most dangerous of the remaining Wild Card teams.

    Better then than some other report I just read, but why put the 49ers ahead of the Panthers just because they won a game in the cold tundra against Green Bay ?
    NO won as well, and if you ask me they will beat the SeaHawks this Saturday, and the Panthers will bet the 49er on Sunday, the Bronks will beat SD, and Tom Brady will beat Luck. then we will all get a chance to reside who wins the next games.

    GO Panthers and pound those 49ers one more time and if you get a chance hit Ric Flair as well. Maybe Mr R should invite Ric to watch the game with him and really put him on the spot. Ric being a Charlotte native, a hero in the state of NC, and a 49er fan. Hmmmmm.
