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.
