NFL Power Rankings (Week 12)

1)  Colts (10-0) – LW 1

They haven’t played particularly well of late, but they keep finding ways to win.

2)  Saints (10-0) – LW 2

The Saints high-octane offense might meet its match next week against the Patriots and Tom Brady.

3)  Vikings (9-1) – LW 3

The old gunslinger isn’t playing like a 40-year-old.

4)  Patriots (7-3) – LW 6

The Pats hope to crush the Saints quest for an undefeated season.

5)  Chargers (7-3) – LW 8

The Chargers lead their division and are playing solid, complete football.

6)  Cardinals (7-3) – LW 7

At 7-3 the Cardinals have a healthy 3 game lead in their division.

7)  Bengals (7-3) – LW 4

Bad loss in Oakland last week, but they can get back on track as they face the Browns.

8)  Cowboys (7-3) – LW 10

Ugly win against the Redskins last week, but they are still in first place in the NFC East.

9)  Steelers (6-4) – LW 5

Bad loss at home against KC and Roethlisberger’s status is uncertain.

10)  Eagles (6-4) – LW 11

They won a close game and kept pace in the tight NFC East.

11)  Giants (6-4) – LW 16

They snapped their 4 game losing streak at home against Atlanta last week.

12)  Packers (6-4) – LW 14

The defense has played better of late, but the Packer’s success lies in the hands of the offensive line.

13)  Broncos (6-4) – LW 9

After a 6-0 start the Broncos have lost their last 4 games.

14)  Jaguars (6-4) – LW 17

They’ll get a test next week on the road against the 49ers.

15)  Ravens (5-5) – LW 12

A tough schedule and an inability to win close games has the preseason Super Bowl contenders at a mediocre 5-5.

16)  Falcons (5-5) – LW 15

Another tough loss for the Falcons, this time to the Giants in overtime.

17)  Dolphins (5-5) – LW 18

With Ronnie Brown out for the rest of the season, Ricky Williams has to step up and play like he did in his first 4 years in the NFL.

18)  Texans (5-5) – LW 13

They have to learn how to close out games.

19)  Titans (4-6) – LW 21

The combination of the reemergence of Vince Young and the MVP candidate Chris Johnson have the Titans on a 4 game winning streak.

20)  Panthers (4-6) – LW 19

The ground game has been carrying them this season, but in order to win Delhomme has to show that he can stretch the defense.

21)  49ers (4-6) – LW 20

Alex Smith and Vernon Davis have shown great chemistry, but they have to start scoring sooner rather than later.

22)  Jets (4-6) – LW 22

Too many turnovers have put the defense in a position to fail.

23)  Bears (4-6) – LW 23

The Bears have lost 5 of their last 6 games and look to be spiraling downward.

24)  Chiefs (3-7) – LW 27

They get better and better every week and they showed their progress with a win against Pittsburgh last week.

25)  Seahawks (3-7) – LW 24

They get a great chance at win number 4 against the Rams next week.

26)  Redskins (3-7) – LW 25

With Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts injured it’s hard to picture a late Redskins run at a playoff position.

27)  Bills (3-7) – LW 26

They’re searching for a new head coach and Mike Shanahan is a very appealing option.

28)  Raiders (3-7) – LW 29

Bruce Gradkowski got the Raiders a much-needed win against a very good Bengals team. Is this the end for JaMarcus Russel?

29)  Lions (2-8) – LW 30

Matt Stafford exploited the porous Browns defense to the tune of 400+ passing yards and 5 tds including the game winner with no time left on the clock.

30)  Bucs (1-9) – LW 28

First they fire the offensive coordinator 10 days after hiring him, now they fire the defensive coordinator 10 weeks into the season.

31)  Rams (1-9) – LW 31

With Marc Bulger out at least 3 weeks, Kyle Boller will start for the Rams who will be searching for their next franchise qb.

32)  Browns (1-9) – LW 32

A pass interference call in the end zone gave the Lions a chance to win and they capitalized on the Brown’s mistakes.
