In the Week 16 NFL power rankings, the Detroit Lions continue surging while the Dallas Cowboys suffered a brutal loss in Jacksonville.
Houston almost pulled off a mammoth upset of the Chiefs, but couldn’t hang on.
Justin Fields is awesome. The rest of the Bears are not.
Remember when the Cardinals were talked about as a Super Bowl contender last year? That feels like a century ago.
Denver beat the Cardinals. Not sure we have to add to that.
It’s been a long, hard, ugly year for the Rams. Thankfully, it ends in three weeks.
What in God’s name was that?
The Falcons wanted to see what they have in Desmond Ridder, and the early returns were not ideal.
Somehow, the Saints are one game out of the NFC South lead. If they hadn’t blown an absurd game to the Bucs a few weeks ago, they’d be poised for the playoffs.
Carolina still controls its own destiny, which is a wild thing to say about a 5-9 team.
Pittsburgh doesn’t have much talent, but the Steelers are putting together a respectable campaign under head coach Mike Tomlin.
Somehow, finally, the Raiders came out on the right side of an insane NFL moment.
A failed fake punt and four turnovers. That’s one way to start the second half.

The Packers will try to make Christmas interesting when they visit South Beach for some warm weather.
The Jets had every opportunity to beat the Lions and stay in the playoff mix. Now, they likely need to win out for any hope.
The Jaguars control their own fate. Win out against the Jets, Texans and Titans, and they’ll host a playoff game.
It feels like the Seahawks have been a great story all year, but the ending is going to be disappointing.
Tennessee has fallen apart over the last month, losing four straight. The Titans need to find a way against Houston, or it could be all over.
The Lions are now a good bet to make the playoffs. Two wins might do it. Three wins almost certainly will.
Tough loss at home for the Commanders, who lost the game by playing terribly in both red zones.
The Giants hadn’t won a game in four weeks, but they found themselves at the right time and likely punched their playoff ticket.
Miami had a chance to beat Buffalo, but had to be better situationally.
The Ravens need Lamar Jackson back ASAP, and then must figure out how to score some points.
Los Angeles is rolling. It’s not perfect, and the Chargers aren’t the Bills, Chiefs and Bengals, but they’re dangerous.
The greatest comeback in NFL history. Not bad.
Dallas led 27-10, 34-31, and then had the ball first in overtime. Somehow, the Cowboys lost.
Brock Purdy, Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance. Who cares? NFC West champs.
The Bengals are the AFC’s most consistent team. All they do is win.
Buffalo should be concerned about its front without Von Miller, but Josh Allen looks great.
Kansas City has been living on the edge against Denver and Houston over the past two weeks. Need to clean things up.
The Eagles have essentially wrapped everything up. Now it’s about Jalen Hurts’ injury.
