Week 16 NFL Power Rankings

Posted: December 20, 2016 in NFL

The playoff picture is starting to become clearer with just 2 weeks left to the regular seasons. 10 teams have been eliminated, and 4 teams have clinched thus far.

The Patriots took over the top spot after an impressive win in Denver and the former #1 Cowboys dropped to 3. The Falcons remained at 2 after taking care of business at home against the 49ers. The Steelers remained at 4 and the Raiders jumped the Chiefs to move into the top 5. The Colts moved up 7 spots, Giants and Panthers each moved up 4. The Lions and Vikings dropped 9 and 7 spots, respectively. As mentioned last week, there really are no great teams this year so home-field advantage in the playoffs becomes even more important. The Week 16 Preview will feature odds for all clinching scnearios as it has in the past.
