One Winning Drive: Week 13 Power Rankings

Recommended Posts

Just a quick peek at the rankings right now, the rest will follow tomorrow…

The Giants hold onto to the top spot in the rankings for the second straight week, but the Titans loss to the Jets cost them the number two position. The Jets, on a five-game winning streak, have taken that spot from the Titans, along with their hopes of staying undefeated.

Moving through the Top 10, you will not find too many changes. The Panthers loss to their division-rival Falcons cost them a few spots, but most of the other leaders won this week.

The biggest change in our Top 10 this week: The Redskins, despite a close win over the Seahawks, have fallen from the number nine position. Replacing them in the rankings are the Ravens, who beat up on the Eagles on Sunday. The AFC is slowly but surely asserting its dominance in the rankings, it appears…

Ups and Downs

1

Giants

1

10-1

They can beat up good defenses. They can out-gun good offenses. What more do they need?

2

Jets

4

8-3

Brett Favre is getting all the glory, but it was Thomas Jones that did all the dirty work.

3

Titans

2

10-1

The Jets were the first true offensive threat they faced all season, and they Titans stumbled. Bad news ahead: they still have to faced a reenergized Colts team in the coming weeks.

4

Buccaneers

5

8-3

Slow and steady wins the race. Is there a more apt description of Jeff Garcia and this offense?

5

Steelers

7

8-3

Talk about a tough final run: New England, Baltimore and Tennessee… all on the road.

6

Colts

8

7-4

Riding a four game winning streak already and their next three opponents have a combined five wins. 10-4, here they come.

7

Panthers

3

8-3

Not only did the loss cost them control of the division, it made them a target. The Falcons are now just a game behind and the Saints just two.

8

Patriots

10

7-4

I continue to stand by my assertion: this team has a problem on defense. What happens when Cassel and the offense get shut down? Can the Pats stop anyone from scoring?

9

Cardinals

6

7-4

No shame in falling to the Giants. Everyone’s doing it, you know. It would have been nice to see them clinch the division though. Maybe, Thursday.

10

Ravens

11

7-4

Over their last four games, including the Giants loss, the Ravens have a plus-11 turnover differential. Their defense + and offense that holds onto the ball = serious success.
