Welcome to my final power rankings of the 2020 season. I feel like the cast is set for almost all the teams left and we pretty much know who are contenders and who are the pretenders.
One fraud that I see now is the previously 11-0 Pittsburgh Steelers who ran through a schedule of cup cakes all season long. Then they met a little resistances against playoff teams and the whole house of cards came tumbling down after their loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night.
I am sure you all remember when the Las Vegas Raiders were 6-3 and riding a wave of glory after beating the Kansas City Chiefs. Even then I was calling them a fraud and here we are with the Raiders 7-7 and the Chiefs 13-1.
Then, of course, our beloved Broncos. The rollercoaster continues. One week after Drew Lock had his best career game the Broncos can only muster 13 points (ignoring the late garbage time touchdown) while the defense final succumbed to injuries in a 48-19 route. I’m putting them where they likely are at this juncture. However, I am looking forward to seeing this team rebound in 2021. I think the pieces are there, they just need to put them all together.
Here are you Week 16 NFL Power Rankings.
