These weekly NFL Power rankings are more fun after a Denver Broncos win. They have clawed themselves out of the 20s and into the teens with an impressive 20-13 win over the Miami Dolphins. A win next week and they corner will truly be turned with this team.
As for the rest of the league, it is clear that the Pittsburgh Steelers and Kansas City Chiefs are the two teams that are dominating at this point. The New Orleans Saints appear to be pretty good too, but with Drew Brees out a long time there is some doubt there. After those two AFC juggernauts, there is a a large pool of playoff contenders. Seven other AFC teams are in the mix there, but in the NFC there are six good teams before a bit of a drop off into sub-.500 teams there.
The NFC East in particular is as embarrassing as divisions get. The Philadelphia Eagles are clinging to a half game lead in the division thanks to a 3-6-1 record, while all three other teams are at 3-7. Due to the competitiveness of that division at being bad, I ranked them all in order from 24-27.
Here are my NFL power rankings for Week 12.
