Please remember to get super mad online and angry over these meaningful rankings!
The shuffling of these bottom three teams continues!
Quietly, out of nowhere, the Ravens and Browns are breathing down the necks of the Steelers. A lot still has to go wrong for them to relinquish the division, but games against the Patriots and Saints is going to make it tough.
The win against the Rams was impressive as hell, cementing their defense as the best in the NFL. Seemingly locked into the 3rd seed in the NFC, the Bears are going to have to go on the road at least once in the playoffs.
The Chargers need to beat the Chiefs this Thursday and then hope they lose to Oakland in Week 17. The latter is unlikely, meaning there is a decent chance the Chargers end up as a 13-3 wild card team.
You’d have to think it is unlikely that Los Angeles has to play a road game in the cold in the playoffs, so I am going to only drop them down a slot after their loss to the Bears. Tough environment, tough weather, I still think the Rams are a Top 3 team.
It took overtime against a mediocre Baltimore team, but Kansas City stays in the driver’s seat in the AFC (even a loss to the Chargers this Thursday leaves them in good shape). It’s clear that no Kareem Hunt is going to be a problem for the Chiefs.
Okay, see ya.
