Power Rankings for Week 14


Each week after Monday Night game(s) has concluded, I’ll  publish my list of NFL power rankings.  Here is the pecking order for Week 14.

1) Green Bay Packers  – Does it even matter whom they play now?

2) New Orleans Saints –  Not much offense by their standards, but still got it done against the Titans.

3) Baltimore Ravens  – Terrell Suggs swallowed Dan Orlovsky whole.

4)  Pittsburgh Steelers  –  Gritty Big Ben leads Steelers to victory.

5)  Houston Texans  – Texans took a squeaker in Cincy.

6)  San Francisco 49ers  – Some sort of cosmic symmetry in former Stanford coach being beaten by, you know, the Cardinal(s).

7) New England Patriots  – Held off the Redskins in Washington.

8) New York Jets  – Sanchez continues string of strong performances.

9) Detroit Lions  –  Lions outlasted Vikes at home.

10)  New York Giants  –  G-Men leapfrog Dallas.
