    People need to understand that this isn't necessarily predicting how the teams will finish at the end of the year. These are power rankings, which basically are ranking the teams based on what we know right now. Of course someone like Baltimore, Miami, Washington, etc. could end up winning the Super Bowl, but based on last year and what we know right now it would be silly to rank them that high.

    They're preseason power rankings, not end of year predictions.

      What we know right now is that around 8 new teams will make the playoffs, it happens every year. Basing power rankings on last year performance never works because the NFL uses schedules to make sure that 8 new teams will make the playoffs.
      For instance, the NFC North, the worst division in pro football, played the AFC North and the NFC South last year, and both of those conferences produced a lot of playoff teams as a result. The NFC North doesn't play those 2 conferences this year, and as a result there could be fewer playoff teams coming from those 2 conferences. The NFC North instead plays the AFC East and the NFC West, so you might expect to see these 2 conferences produce more playoff teams. On the other hand, the AFC North play the AFC West and the NFC South, so the conference may only produce 1 playoff team. The NFC South may also only see 1 playoff team as they now play the AFC North and the NFC East. That's how the system works.
      And proud of it!!!

          Of course, but like I said, we're ranking these teams based off what we know right now. I don't think anyone expects all of the top 12 teams in our power ranking to make the playoffs, but at this point they certainly have more of an argument than teams like Cleveland, Tennessee, and Houston. Any of those teams could make the playoffs, but right now it would be silly to rank them over more proven teams. This is a power ranking, not a prediction.

            Actually if you examine their schedules, a lot of teams that made the playoffs are very unlikely to repeat. Their power rankings were based on playing Divisions like the NFC North, teams they won't face this coming year. They have little prospect of returning to the playoffs, otherwise you might as well just post last year's standings as your power rankings if your not making any predictions. Since 8 of the 12 playoff teams won't make the playoffs as reality has shown, there are very few arguments that would support these power rankings.

              I'm not sure how many times it has to be said, but these are POWER RANKINGS, NOT PREDICTIONS. They are not mutually exclusive. These are the rankings heading into the season, not predictions of who will be in the playoffs at the end of the season.

              Everyone knows about the parity in the NFL, so it wouldn't be shocking for a team like Cleveland, Oakland, or Buffalo to end up making the playoffs this year. However, those teams have no business in the top 12 of the preseason power rankings ahead of more proven teams.

                    They sure look like predictions to me otherwise you'd have to go by last year's records. If it smells like a prediction and looks like a prediction, then I'd have to say it is a prediction and it isn't going to be close to being right. JMO.

                      before the season alot of analysts had them getting to the Superbowl or at least AFC Championship... everyone predicted that Chad would be fine, and no one could predict that 2 offensive lineman, 2 quarterbacks, 1 HOF runningback, 1 starting LB, and some other players would get hurt...

                      I think it shouls be interesting after the season to see how wrong we were :D ...

                          Tampa is definitely in the lower 10 of the league.
