NFL Power Rankings – Week 17

It’s over. The regular season over. This will be the final power rankings of the 2015 NFL season. No use ranking the teams after the champion is crowned.

  1. Arizona Cardinals (12-4)    

  2. Carolina Panthers (15-1)   

  3. New England Patriots (12-4)      

  4. Seattle Seahawks (10-6)

  5. Kansas City Chiefs (11-5)

  6. Denver Broncos (12-4)

  7. Minnesota Vikings (11-5)  

  8. Green Bay Packers (10-6)

  9. Pittsburgh Steelers (10-6)

  10. New York Jets (10-6)

  11. Cincinnati Bengals (12-4)

  12. Houston Texans (9-7)JJ_WATT_TEXANS

    The Texans are back in the playoffs, and with a winning record too. They’ve won at least nine games in four of the past five years, yet no one really thinks of them as a good team. J.J. Watt is good. DeAndre Hopkins is good. That was enough to win a weak AFC South.

  13. Buffalo Bills (8-8)  

  14. Washington Redskins (9-7)     

  15. Oakland Raiders (7-9)

  16. Indianapolis Colts (8-8)

  17. Detroit Lions (7-9)    

  18. Philadelphia Eagles (7-9)

  19. New Orleans Saints (7-9) DREW_BREES_SAINTS   

    The Saints won their last two which made their season not look as bad as it was. Drew Brees led the league in passing yards but he’s just not the player he used to be. This was not a team that ever really was in playoff contention.

  20. Atlanta Falcons (8-8)

  21. St. Louis Rams (7-9)

  22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-10)       

  23. Chicago Bears (6-10)

  24. New York Giants (6-10)         

  25. Miami Dolphins (6-10)      NDAMUKONG_SUH_DOLPHINS

    The Dolphins did beat the Patriots this week and it wasn’t a meaningless game for New England. That was just about the only highlight of the season though. They fired their coach midseason and then the new coach fired his coordinators a few weeks later. A very disappointing season in Miami.

  26. San Diego Chargers (4-12)

  27. Baltimore Ravens (5-11)       

  28. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-11)         BLAKE_BORTLES_JAGUARS   

    The Bortles to Allen (Robinson and Hurns) connection looks like the beginning of a bright future for the Jacksonville offense. The team as a whole was still no good. Gus Bradley needs to get the defense to play better or else he should be out of a job. 

  29. San Francisco 49ers (5-11)

  30. Dallas Cowboys (4-12)

  31. Cleveland Browns (3-13)            

  32. Tennessee Titans (3-13)
