NFL Power Rankings: Week 13

A win that should have been a loss is still a win, right Broncos Country? Thank God Brandon McManus made a field goal on Sunday or who knows what would have happened in overtime!

This Denver Broncos fan was laid up bedridden with some awful disease that afflicted my ability to open my eyes without a migraine, breathe without coughing or stay warm no matter how many blankets I pulled over me. Which meant I slipped in and out of consciousness as I listened to KOA 850 on my iHeart Radio app during the big Broncos-Dolphins game.

The reason that little story is relevant today is that I barely watched a quarter of football this weekend, which means I've got none of my usual "analysis" prepared for today's power rankings. Just picture in your minds the snottiest sarcastic comment or meme for each team and that is exactly what I intended to write or share for that team. Ha, just kidding! No really. Do it.

The one quarter I did watch was the exciting Dez Bryant awesome sauce from the third quarter and into late in the fourth quarter to lift the Dallas Cowboys to an impressive road win on Prime Time.

Anyway, here are last week's power rankings and here is my quick and dirty rankings based on reading recaps on Monday. I know. Lame, but I can't help being too sick to watch football. I don't even remember the last time that has happened...
