Power Rankings, Week 16: the Picture is still Unclear

Hi.  Wanna see something neat?

 

RANKTEAMHAWT TAEK
1New England PatriotsThe schedule has been friendly, but winning in Denver puts a nice stamp on a very good season.
2Dallas CowboysA good win at home, but this team seems more and more beatable as the playoffs approach.
3New York GiantsWinners of 8 of the last 9, including over the Cowboys, Lions, and Ravens. The NFC East has the two best teams in the NFC.
4Oakland RaidersThe unimpressive wins continue.
5Atlanta FalconsCrush the weaklings when you can. Time to prove the ranking against division foes.
6Kansas City ChiefsTennessee is much improved as the year progresses, and it was cold as hell, but that was a bad performance by a team that had climbed to no. 2.
7Seattle SeahawksBack on track after a whooping.
8Green Bay PackersThey should prolly just run the table then.
9Detroit LionsI bet they already know, deep down, how this ends.
10Miami DolphinsAlso winners of 8 of their last 9, and yet the playoff picture is complicated. Must win in Buffalo and kill Rex Ryan's head coaching career.
11Pittsburgh SteelersThe AFC North is still up for grabs, but order has been restored as it appears the battle is between Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
12Tennessee TitansThe worst division in football is also shaping up to be one of the more fun divisions, and Tennessee has a bright future.
13Houston TexansBack to beating in-division opponents, but that was too close for comfort. The QB situation will kill them, the question is when.
14Tampa Bay BuccaneersSure, they lost their big est. But the future is still bright as long as the Bucs can put a little polish on their offense.
15Baltimore RavensGood to bounce back after losing to the Patriots, but none too impressive in doing so.
16Denver BroncosIts looking pretty over for the Champs.
17Washington RedskinsBeaten badly by Carolina, at home, and losing the lead for the final spot in the NFC playoffs. Bad week meng.
18Indianapolis ColtsWhatever else can be said of the Vikings, it took the Colts to finally make the defense quit.
19Buffalo BillsSexy Rexy and his mediocre feet-havers are still officially in the mix.
20Minnesota VikingsThough not officially out, they are relegated to trying to spoil Green Bay's late run.
21Carolina PanthersWhere was that effort all year?
22New Orleans SaintsAt least Brees can keep bulk-stating his way up the record book.
23Arizona CardinalsMember when they had a top defense?
24Philadelphia Eagles Member when they had a top defense?
25Cincinnati BengalsAll they had left was beating the Steelers for a sense of pride, and they blew it.
26San Diego ChargersRivers sucks now. Maybe he's hurt.
27Los Angeles RamsDoes anyone really care how I rank these pre-Bears bad teams.
28New York JetsSeriously, let me know, I am not even trying.
29Chicago BearsHey, frisky effort guys! But here's the thing about letting receivers get deep with very little time left in a tie game: its dumb.
30Jacksonville JaguarsMove the franchise already. I'm thinking Anchorage for better attendance.
31San Fransisco 49ersMaybe Chip can learn from this, and create a better offense.
32Cleveland Browns0-16! 0-16! 0-16!
