The Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers moved into the top seeds in their conferences on Sunday, and they’re not likely to fall backwards.
New York Jets 0-13
Last rank: 32nd
Not even pretending to care at this point.
Jacksonville Jaguars 1-12
Last rank: 31st
Jacksonville isn’t going to win another game. The schedule is brutal, and so are the Jags.
Cincinnati Bengals 2-10-1
Last rank: 30th
Again, no Joe Burrow, no chance for the Bengals.
Carolina Panthers 4-9
Last rank: 24th
The Panthers looked awful, against the Broncos, at home, off a bye week. Bad news.
Atlanta Falcons 4-8
Last rank: 23rd
We finally got the Disaster Bowl between the Falcons and Chargers, and Atlanta didn’t disappoint.
Houston Texans 4-8
Last rank: 25th
Houston was blasted by Mitchell Trubisky. That about sums about 2020 for the Texans.
Dallas Cowboys 4-9
Last rank: 28th
Andy Dalton’s revenge game is a success, and somehow the Cowboys are still alive.
Los Angeles Chargers 4-9
Last rank: 27th
In spite of their time management, the Chargers won on Sunday afternoon.
Philadelphia Eagles 4-8-1
Last rank: 29th
Jalen Hurts has given Philadelphia a spark. Is it enough to somehow win the division?
Denver Broncos 5-8
Last rank: 26th
Nice win by the Broncos, who have continued to play hard for Vic Fangio.
San Francisco 49ers 5-8
Last rank: 21st
The injuries finally sunk the 49ers.
Detroit Lions 5-8
Last rank: 20th
The Lions fought against the Packers, but it wasn’t enough. Same old song.
New York Giants 5-8
Last rank: 17th
New York had a golden opportunity, and the Giants looked lost against the Cardinals.
Chicago Bears 6-7
Last rank: 22nd
A win over Houston keeps things alive, but the Bears are still in need of a miracle.
Minnesota Vikings 6-7
Last rank: 16th
Minnesota might be working out some kickers this week.
Washington Football Team 6-7
Last rank: 19th
The defense is legit, and Ron Rivera is one hell of a football coach.
Las Vegas Raiders 7-6
Last rank: 15th
Just a brutal job by the Raiders down the stretch. Coming in 6-3 and then losing three of four.
New England Patriots 6-7
Last rank: 14th
Cam Newton is on borrowed time in New England.
Arizona Cardinals 7-6
Last rank: 18th
Huge, gutsy win by a Cardinals team that was reeling. Win two more and it’s playoff time.
Miami Dolphins 8-5
Last rank: 13th
Not going to ding Miami for losing to the Chiefs. The Dolphins fought hard and Tua Tagovailoa was much better in the second half.
Baltimore Ravens 8-5
Last rank: 12th
Baltimore doesn’t move up because almost everyone ahead of it won, but the Ravens are ready to go on a major roll with a soft schedule ahead.
Tennessee Titans 9-4
Last rank: 11th
The Titans thrashed Jacksonville and now they get the Lions in Nashville. Nice stretch.
Cleveland Browns 9-4
Last rank: 8th
Cleveland lost, but the Browns aren’t the same team we’ve known for 20 years. That said, they need to beat the Giants or face a potential disaster.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 8-5
Last rank: 10th
The Buccaneers were helped plenty by Dan Bailey, but they moved a big step forward towards the playoffs.
Seattle Seahawks 9-4
Last rank: 9th
Big game on deck with Washington. After that, a showdown with the Rams for the NFC West.
Los Angeles Rams 9-4
Last rank: 7th
The Rams continue to play great defensively and do enough offensively. It’s all about Week 16 against the Seahawks for the NFC West.
Indianapolis Colts 9-4
Last rank: 6th
Indianapolis has a very good defense, a capable offense and a hell of a coaching staff. The Colts are going to be a tough out.
Pittsburgh Steelers 11-2
Last rank: 4th
The offense is anemic. There’s just no punch, and it’s catching up with Pittsburgh.
New Orleans Saints 10-3
Last rank: 2nd
Tough break for the Saints. Without their Hall of Fame quarterback, they’ve gone 3-1. Overall, nine straight wins, and yet they’re likely going without a bye.
Green Bay Packers 10-3
Last rank: 5th
Green Bay now has the inside track to home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs. Huge.
Buffalo Bills 10-3
Last rank: 3rd
If there was any doubt, there’s not anymore. The Bills are a Super Bowl contender, and Josh Allen is a star.
Kansas City Chiefs 12-1
Last rank: 1st
The Chiefs committed four turnovers, against a previously 8-4 team, on the road, and won fairly easily.
