NFL Week 12 Power Rankings: Thanksgiving Edition
by Pietro DiSante Jr,posted Nov 21 2012 12:58PM
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! The season is flying by, with Week 12 right around the corner. This week's Power Rankings are going to be a Thanksgiving Edition. For each team I will write what they are thankful for and yes, just like the Halloween Edition, I will use all 32 teams! Yes, even the Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs have something to be thankful for. If they don't, I will make it up! So all is good. Haha. Okay, on to the Power Rankings!
NFL WEEK 12 POWER RANKINGS: THANKSGIVING EDITION
1. Denver Broncos (7-3)
This one is easy: Peyton Manning. Let me throw another name out there: John Elway. Why? Because he signed Peyton Manning and traded Tim Tebow. Winner.
2. Green Bay Packers (7-3)
Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy and the best fans in the NFL.
3. New England Patriots (7-3)
Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and the Bills, Dolphins and Jets.
4. Houston Texans (9-1)
Schaub, Foster, Johnson and that Peyton Manning is not a Colt anymore.
5. Atlanta Falcons (9-1)
Bountygate, Matt Ryan, Michael Turner, and their amazing Wide Recievers.
6. Baltimore Ravens (8-2)
Byron Leftwich, Ray Rice and a great home crowd.
7. San Francisco 49ers (7-2-1)
Another easy one: Jim Harbaugh. He has changed everything over night.
8. New York Giants (6-4)
Eli Manning, Tom Coughlin, and Victor Cruz.
9. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4)
The Steelers showed they are still a tough team, even without Ben Roethlisberger. That impressed me. What are they thankful for though? Tough one. Having Ben, a top defense, and Plax back!
10. Seattle Seahawks (6-4)
Russell Wilson's future, a great defense, and a home crowd that will give you a headache!
11. New Orleans Saints (5-5)
12. Chicago Bears (7-3)
A great defense and hopefully a healthy Jay Cutler soon.
13. Indianapolis Colts (6-4)
Andew Luck of course, and being Chuck-Strong!
14. Dallas Cowboys (5-5)
Rob Ryan, Jason Garrett, Tony Romo and company get some hate, but they are responsible for the 5 wins too folks!
15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-4)
Vincent Jackson and Doug Martin baby! That is what Josh Freeman is saying at least.
