Week 14 Rankings

Posted on: December 14, 2010 6:01 pm
1 Patriots 11-2 Pats fans should start to book flights to Dallas. This appears to be a Super Bowl team. 
2 Falcons 11-2 Falcons' second-ranked third-down offense has converted at least 50 percent in six of past seven games. 
3 Steelers 10-3 Pittsburgh's D is allowing an average of only nine points per game in its past four. 
4 Saints 10-3 Yes, Drew Brees has too many picks, but Saints lead NFL in third-down conversion rate. 
5 Ravens 9-4 Baltimore beat Houston in overtime. But the Ravens' lack of killer instinct is concerning. 
6 Eagles 9-4 Andy Reid could seal the deal for the NFC East if his Eagles can beat the Giants
7 Giants 9-4 The short week from the unexpected Monday night game and the injury list could make playing the Eagles even tougher.  
8 Bears 9-4 Does Brian Urlacher still think the Bears are better than the Patriots? 
9 Jets 9-4 The Jets still might make the playoffs, but opponents have figured out the Jets' defense and QB Mark Sanchez.  
10 Packers 8-5 With no running game, the Packers proved they cannot thrive without QB Aaron Rodgers (concussion). 
11 Jaguars 8-5 Now the Jags travel to Indianapolis for the AFC South game of the year. How many saw that coming?  
12 Chargers 7-6 The way the Chargers played against the Chiefs, no one would want to face them in the playoffs. 
13 Buccaneers 8-5 The Bucs are running out of players when they need them the most.  
14 Chiefs 8-5 Would things have been different against San Diego with Matt Cassel?  
15 Colts 7-6 Titans were good medicine for Peyton Manning. Now can the Colts stop Maurice Jones-Drew in huge game?  
16 Dolphins 7-6 Tony Sparano's conservative style has the Dolphins hanging around at a respectable 7-6.  
17 Raiders 6-7 Raiders wasted a great day by Darren McFadden by failing to stop the Jaguars' running game.  
18 Rams 6-7 Winning twice during three-game road trip put Rams in NFC West driver's seat. 
19 Texans 5-8 The Texans made the Ravens look like an offensive juggernaut, which they are not. 
20 Cowboys 4-9 Jason Garrett could be in good shape to be the full-time coach until Jeff Fisher is freed from Tennessee. 
21 Browns 5-8 Watching this team play offense can be bad for your health.
22 Titans 5-8 A big finish could still help Jeff Fisher's cause, but even 8-8 might not be good enough.
23 49ers 5-8 Division games against Rams and Cardinals trump Thursday night matchup with San Diego. 
24 Seahawks 6-7 All seven of the Seahawks' defeats have come by double-digit margins. 
25 Redskins 5-8 Mike Shanahan isn't on the coaching hot seat, but a lot of his players are on their own hot seats.  
26 Vikings 5-8 The Brett Favre streak is over, but will he play another game? 
27 Cardinals 4-9 Kicker Jay Feely's 25 points Sunday were more than Cardinals have scored in 10 of their games.  
28 Bills 3-10 The only bad luck for the Bills is that their third win could cost them a chance at Andrew Luck.                                         29 Lions 3-10 The Lions finally got over the hump and got a big win over Green Bay.                                                                         30 Broncos 3-10 Life in Studesville didn't appear any different than "McDanielsville." They're getting worse by the week. 
31 Bengals 2-11 QB Carson Palmer has six multi-interception games this season. 
32 Panthers 1-12 Opponents have outscored Carolina 100-32 in the fourth quarter this season.
