Predominantly Orange Week 16 NFL Power Rankings
9. Green Bay Packers (11)
Gimpy calf=no problem. After a little scare against the Bears, a famous Rodgers hail mary set up the game winning score, and perhaps a shot at the playoffs. If the Packers can beat the Vikings, and the Cowboys beat the Lions, the Packers will be playing in Detroit for the division title. You have to like their chances.
10. Detroit Lions (8)
From two-seed to out of the playoffs in three weeks time. This is the ultimate nightmare for Lions fans, and it is looking like a legitimate possibility at this point. A win against the Cowboys would go a long way.
11. Seattle Seahawks (12)
This is go-time for the current NFC two-seed Seahawks. Since 2011, the Seahawks and the Patriots are tied for the best record in December. They have already clinched the division, but now they have a first round bye on their mind.
12. Tennessee Titans (14)
The Titans have now won two straight games that they likely should have lost. There is something to be said about finding a way to win. It is typically the mark of a good time. Marcus Mariota and Co. have to be considered the favorites to win the AFC South at this point.
