We have a new, but predictable number one at the top of the Power Rankings. See how the rest of the rankings fall going into the final three games.
The Patriots are back on top of the Power Rankings. Surprise surprise. With their week 15 game against the Denver Broncos, can they hold on? Will Dallas bounce back? With only three weeks remaining, only one team has clinched a playoff spot. Lots of questions will be answered in week 15.
1. New England Patriots (2)
In a year in which there just simply isn’t a dominant team, the Patriots have done their best to be the most consistent contender. No Gronk—no problem, so far.
2. Kansas City Chiefs (4)
The Chiefs have found a lot of ways to win this season, and have had some good fortune in doing so. However, there is little doubt that they flat-out dominate the Raiders. In 2 games, the Chiefs have stifled the high-scoring Oakland attack, and have now taken full control of the AFC West.
3. Dallas Cowboys (1)
Dak Prescott has been incredible in his rookie season for the Cowboys. However, it can’t be easy seeing Tony Romo on the sideline, ready to go if you stumble. The past two games haven’t been as seamless for the rookie. This is a team that is built to go to the Super Bowl this year. If the struggles continue, at what point do they look to the veteran who is yearning for one more shot. Worked out alright for the Broncos a season ago. Could Jason Garrett reach for that spark?
4. Pittsburgh Steelers (7)
Big Ben hasn’t been quite the same quarterback since returning from his knee injury. However, he doesn’t have to be when LeVeon Bell is turning in 298 yard, three TD days. There are so many weapons for this Steelers team. If they can get a good defensive effort, they can win a Super Bowl.
