NFL Week 16 Power Rankings
by Pietro DiSante Jr,posted Dec 19 2012 3:41PM
Only 2 weeks left in the NFL season, so we are down to the wire! The top teams are finally starting to take shape and the bad teams are starting to fade away. The 49ers showed they can compete with anyone, by defeating the Patriots in New England. Peyton Manning and the Broncos continued their winning ways in Baltimore and will remain in the #1 spot for a 6th straight week. Who will compete with them in the AFC? The Patriots and Texans looks to be in the mix, with Baltimore, Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh also having something to say.
1. Denver Broncos (11-3)
The Broncos are the best in the league and have been for quite sometime. The mix of a great defense and a great offense is tough to beat. I am not sure they will be beat again.....
2. San Francisco 49ers (10-3-1)
Big win in New England made me see how good San Francisco can be. Having said that, I really think the Seahawks have a great chance at beating them at home this Sunday Night.
3. Green Bay Packers (10-4)
Green Bay won their division for a 2nd straight year. Let's see if they can win some playoff games and maybe even a 2nd Super Bowl in 3 years.
4. New England Patriots (10-4)
The Patriots are still a top team, despite the loss to the 49ers. They are also a team who can be beaten though. Their defense needs to step up it's game for Brady and the offense.
5. Atlanta Falcons (12-2)
The Falcons showed they can hang with the big boys by shutting out the world champions Giants at home on Sunday. I think Atlanta has a great chance of representing the NFC in the Super Bowl. Heck, they might be my favorites to now.
6. Houston Texans (12-2)
The Texans are a great team, but I worry about them going up against Peyton Manning or Tom Brady come playoff time. That will prove how good they really are.
7. Washington Redskins (8-6)
Wow, Kirk Cousins did a pretty good RGIII impression against the Browns. The Redskins have a great chance of winning the NFC East now and if they do: They could be the NFC's dark horse to make a Super Bowl run.
8. Seattle Seahawks (9-5)
I am loving this team right now. They are on fire and are a serious playoff contender. The problem they have is they will likely have to play on the road. Still, I am very impressed with the Seahawks.
9. Dallas Cowboys (8-6)
I am liking how Dallas won these close games against the Bengals and Steelers the last couple weeks. They still have something to say in this whole playoff mix. Can't wait for the Redskins showdown next week!
10. New York Giants (8-6)
I think this is the time of the year where the Giants start playing great. The last two weeks will prove if they can pull off another late season run.
No Thursday games, but we do have the Falcons at the Lions this Saturday Night. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!
