NFL Power Rankings 2016 Week 15

 


1
 

Patriots

As long as Tom Brady is chucking it around, they are the team to beat. Period.111-2-0
2
 

Cowboys

They have to be encouraged by the improved play of the defense. The pass rush will be key going forward.111-2-0
3
 

Chiefs

Are you a believer? It might be time for that. They are playing well.110-3-0
4
 

Lions

Matthew Stafford’s injured finger can be an issue the rest of the way. It starts with a tough one at New York against the Giants.39-4-0
5
 

Raiders

They lost at Kansas City, which likely means they will travel the wild-card route. Derek Carr was bad that night, but he will rebound.210-3-0
6
 

Seahawks

That was just one of those days at Green Bay. They will win their last three and be a dangerous playoff team again.–8-4-1
7
 

Falcons

They impressed against the Rams without Julio Jones. The defense is improving.38-5-0
8
 

Giants

The defense has made big strides since early in the season. The secondary is really playing well.–9-4-0
9
 

Broncos

The Super Bowl champions are in big trouble now. They can’t afford another loss.48-5-0
10
 

Steelers

They are getting on a roll. You can just feel it. This is a team nobody wants in the playoffs.18-5-0
11
 

Buccaneers

They’ve won five straight heading to a big game at Dallas this week against the Cowboys. Win that, and they will be a playoff team.18-5-0
12
 

Ravens

What happened to the defense in New England? The loss of Jimmy Smith could be big to the defense.37-6-0
13
 

Dolphins

They must play without Ryan Tannehill the rest of the regular season after his knee injury. It’s all Matt Moore now.–8-5-0
14
 

Redskins

They won at Philadelphia to stay alive in the playoff chase. That was a must-have victory.–7-5-1
15
 

Texans

By winning at Indianapolis, they are the division leaders. I think they can stay there.17-6-0
16
 

Vikings

They won at Jacksonville to keep their playoff hopes alive. They face the Colts this week.17-6-0
17
 

Titans

They face a brutal game at Kansas City this week against the Chiefs. If they win, they might win the division.27-6-0
18
 

Packers

They have won three straight and they are pushing for the division lead. They will be tough to beat if they get into the postseason.37-6-0
19
 

Panthers

Where has that showing against the Chargers been all season? They looked good on Sunday.75-8-0
20
 

Colts

That loss to the Texans could be the damning blow to their season. The schedule is tough the next two weeks.26-7-0
21
 

Bengals

The Bengals have won two straight games as Andy Dalton continues to have a good season. It’s too late though.35-7-1
22
 

Chargers

The Chargers will likely be looking for a new coach after the season. I can’t imagine Mike McCoy coming back now.75-8-0
23
 

Bills

Is Rex Ryan on his way out? It’s only a matter of time now it appears.36-7-0
24
 

Saints

Drew Brees has struggled the past two games, and they’ve lost both. Can he get it turned around?25-8-0
25
 

Cardinals

This season has been a special-teams disaster, and it will keep them home come playoff time.–5-7-1
26
 

Eagles

That 3-0 start was a big tease. This team has a long way to go to be a playoff contender.35-8-0
27
 

Jets

They won at San Francisco, which might help save Todd Bowles’ job. It didn’t look good early.–4-9-0
28
 

Rams

This team gets worse by the week. The defense isn’t even good anymore. And now Jeff Fisher is gone.–4-9-0
29
 

Bears

They’ve had a ton of injuries, but they’re still playing hard, which is a good sign. There might be some staff changes after the season.–3-10-0
30
 

Jaguars

And the beat goes on. Play close. Lose again. There’s a new coach coming in a month.–2-11-0
31
 

49ers

They competed against the Jets, only to lose in overtime. It sounds like big changes might be coming to this franchise.–1-12-0
32
 

Browns

Are they winning this season? No. Robert Griffin III isn’t changing that.
