NFL Power Rankings

I meant to do a power rankings article after Week 9 when all teams had played at least 8 games, but that the week that Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East Coast and my power was out for a week. So now at the end of the season, with 12 teams headed to the playoffs, 20 of them sitting at home crying, and 7 coaches waiting for an unemployment check (I'm sorry Norv, I'll miss you), I will rank every team in the league, from 1-32. Let me know what you agree or disagree with. First look at my overall season predictions. In some cases, I was just about correct on a team, while other times (yes, I'm looking at you Chiefs and Vikings) I was dead wrong. I got 7 out of 12 playoff teams correct, but I would love to give myself credit for the Giants and Bears who lost out on the playoffs on the final day of the season and bungled away great chances at the postseason. Let's get on with the rankings:

  1. Denver Broncos (13-3)
  2. Seattle Seahawks (11-5)
  3. Atlanta Falcons (13-3)
  4. San Francisco 49ers (11-4-1)
  5. New England Patriots (12-4)
  6. Green Bay Packers (11-5)
  7. Cincinnati Bengals (10-6)
  8. Houston Texans (12-4)
  9. Chicago Bears (10-6)
  10. Washington Redskins (10-6)
  11. Baltimore Ravens (10-6)
  12. Minnesota Vikings (10-6)
  13. New York Giants (9-7)
  14. Dallas Cowboys (8-8)
  15. Indianapolis Colts (11-5)
  16. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-8)
  17. Carolina Panthers (7-9)
  18. Miami Dolphins (7-9)
  19. New Orleans Saints (7-9)
  20. St. Louis Rams (7-8-1)
  21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-9)
  22. San Diego Chargers (7-9)
  23. Detroit Lions (4-12)
  24. Cleveland Browns (5-11)
  25. Tennessee Titans (6-10)
  26. Buffalo Bills (6-10)
  27. Arizona Cardinals (5-11)
  28. New York Jets (6-10)
  29. Philadelphia Eagles (4-12)
