Week 15 Power Rankings
1. Indianapolis Colts (14-0) – The only question they have left to answer is if they should rest their starters.
2. San Diego Chargers (11-3) – Philip Rivers is unstoppable in December.
3. New Orleans Saints (13-1) – Injuries finally caught up with them and they dropped one to the desperate Dallas Cowboys.
4. Philadelphia Eagles (10-4) – Five straight victories and are within reach of stealing home field away from the Vikings.
5. Minnesota Vikings (11-3) – Losers of two out of their last three and now the head coach and starting QB have started to sour.
6. Green Bay Packers (9-5) – That was a heart-breaking loss in Heinz Field but they have two games left to bounce back.
7. Arizona Cardinals (9-5) – That was not an impressive performance against the undermanned Lions.
8. Cincinnati Bengals (9-5) – An emotional time in Cincy but they have two winnable games remaining.
9. Dallas Cowboys (9-5) – A statement win Sunday against the previously unbeaten Saints might have saved the Cowboys season.
10. New England Patriots (9-5) – Their winning but not impressively.
11. New York Giants (8-6) – The G-Men were dominant in all aspects of the game against Washington.
12. Baltimore Ravens (8-6) – A crucial match-up against the Steelers at Heinz Field looms.
13. Tennessee Titans (7-7) – After that disastrous start, their season has been salvaged but now they are without Keith Bulluck and David Thornton for their final games.
14. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-7) – A miraculous last second play has put the Steelers back in the playoff hunt.
15. Denver Broncos (8-6) – Just a disastrous loss to Oakland and now they have to travel and face the red hot Eagles.
16. Jacksonville Jaguars (7-7) – The Jags offense was amazing against the Colts but their defense failed to step up. If they can get both sides of the ball to play great at the same time they would be tough to beat.
17. Miami Dolphins (7-7) – They forced overtime against Tennessee but Chad Henne is still young and tried to force a ball where it didn't belong.
18. Atlanta Falcons (7-7) – A win is a win no matter how ugly it is.
19. New York Jets (7-7) – What happened to the offense? Only 7 points against the suspect Atlanta defense?
20. Carolina Panthers (6-8) – A dominant performance against the Vikings showed what this team is capable of when they put it all together.
21. Houston Texans (7-7) – They got into a shootout with the lowly St. Louis Rams and now have to face the physical Dolphins.
22. San Francisco 49ers (6-8) – The bright spot is that Alex Smith is showing some really good signs of developing.
23. Oakland Raiders (5-9) - Tom Cable probably saved his job by beating the hated Broncos and bringing that team back into the wild card pack.
24. Buffalo Bills (5-9) – A close game against the Pats but neither Fitzpatrick or Edwards is the answer at QB in Buffalo.
25. Seattle Seahawks (5-9) – What does that say about the franchise when the former coach and GM refuses to rejoin the team?
26. Chicago Bears (5-9) – Their performance against the Ravens summed up what this season has been for the Bears.
27. Cleveland Browns (3-11) – Jerome Harrison has emerged as Cleveland's second most explosive player.
28. Washington Redskins (4-10) – An absolute comedic performance Monday Night. Major changes should be coming for the 'Skins, possibly even before the season ends.
29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-12) – No one saw that win coming, which may knock them out of the running for Ndamukong Suh.
30. Kansas City Chiefs (3-11) – Hard to believe this team beat Pittsburgh a month ago.
31. Detroit Lions (2-12) – Their growing as a team but must learn to protect a QB.
32. St. Louis Rams (1-13) – A commendable effort against Houston but again they came out on the losing end.
