NFL Power Rankings 2013: Week 17, Eagles Rebound With A Big Win

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Ranking all 32 NFL Teams.

Now that Week 16 of the NFL is over, it's that time to see where all 32 teams rank. For reference purposes, here is a link to last week's NFL Power Rankings.

The Eagles rebounded with a big win over the Chicago Bears after suffering a setback loss the week before.

Let's dive right in.

BLG's WEEK 17 POWER RANKINGS

1) Denver Broncos (Last Week: 2) - The Broncos didn't sweat much to earn an easy win over the worst team in the NFL.

2) Seattle Seahawks (LW: 1) - So much for the Seahawks being unbeatable at home.

3) Carolina Panthers (LW: 4) - Key win for the Panthers over their division rival. Now Carolina has a great chance of being locked in as the #2 seed in the NFC.

4) San Francisco 49ers (LW: 3) - The Niners are winners of five straight games in a row but they looked a little vulnerable against a bad team on Monday Night Football. Fortunately for SanFran, they held on and clinched a playoff berth.

5) New England Patriots (LW: 7) - The Patriots went down to Baltimore and put a beating on a team that has a very good home record. New England fought to retain their lead on the #2 playoff seed in the AFC.

6) Arizona Cardinals (LW: 8) - The Cards earned a tough win in Seattle only to be officially eliminated from the playoff race due to a 49ers win on MNF. They could possibly finish the season 11-5 and still not make the post-season.

7) Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 9) - Put a beating on Minnesota and clinched the AFC North.

8) New Orleans Saints (LW: 5) - The Saints had a chance to clinch the NFC South and a first round bye with a win but couldn't get the job done.

9) Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 6) - Andy Reid's Chiefs didn't look so great in a loss at home but KC clinched a playoff berth anyway.

10) Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 11) - The Eagles absolutely decimated the Bears at home. Philly will be the #3 seed in the NFC, given they beat Dallas and make the playoffs. Odd observation: the Eagles are the only 9-6 team in the NFL.

11) Indianapolis Colts (LW: 13) - A quality win on the road for a Colts team that has been largely unimpressive recently.

12) San Diego Chargers (LW: 15) - It's very hard not to like what the Chargers have done recently. A win over the Raiders pushes SD to 4-1 in their last five games including a three game winnings streak. The Bolts have the league's 11th best point differential (+45).

13) Chicago Bears (LW: 10) - A big slip up and a missed opportunity for the Chicago. The Bears could have clinched the NFC North with a win over the Eagles. Instead the division will be decided in the Week 17 season finale.

14) Baltimore Ravens (LW: 12) - Usually a good home team but got stomped by the Pats.

15) St. Louis Rams (LW: 17) - The Rams are the only team with a losing record to have a positive point differential (+2).

16) Miami Dolphins (LW: 14) - Very embarrassing loss to the Bills on the road. Couldn't even muster a single point. The 'phins still have a good chance at making the playoffs.

17) Dallas Cowboys (LW: 18) - Dallas almost found a way to lose to the second worst team in the NFL. Despite the win this week, this team simply hasn't been playing very well.

18) Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 19) - Once again, the Steelers kept their slim playoff odds alive with a win.

19) Green Bay Packers (LW: 16) - The Pack can still clinch the NFC North with a win over the Bears in Week 17.

20) Tennessee Titans (LW: 21) - Picked up a win over the Jags on the road, so I guess that's something?

21) New York Giants (LW: 24) - The Giants took advantage of a Lions team that's just an utter mess. And hurt their own draft positioning in the process.

22) Detroit Lions (LW: 20) - LOLions. This team was once 6-3 and in charge of the NFC North. Now they're officially eliminated from the playoffs. It's probably time for Detroit to fire head coach Jim Schwartz.

23) Buffalo Bills (LW: 25) - A gutsy win from this frisky Bills team. Must feel good to record a shutout.

24) New York Jets (LW: 28) - Guess who still isn't nearly as good as their record suggests they are? At least the Jets have a good home record.

25) Minnesota Vikings (LW: 22) - What happened? The Vikes looked great against the Eagles but horrible against the Bengals.

26) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 23) - 170 yards of total offense was all the Bucs could muster in their loss.

27) Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 26) - The hot streak couldn't last. Jacksonville is on their way back down.

28) Atlanta Falcons (LW: 29) - The Falcons deserve to move up for playing the Niners tough on the road and making the last MNF game of the 2013 season interesting.

29) Cleveland Browns (LW: 27) - This team started out 3-2. But now they've suffered six straight losses in a row.

30) Oakland Raiders (LW: 30) - The Raiders are ranked second to last in Football Outsiders's DVOA metric. Oakland has lost five games in a row.

31) Washington Redskins (LW: 31) - You had one job, LolSkins: beat the Cowboys. And you failed. Thanks for nothing.

32) Houston Texans (LW: 32) - Still the worst team in the NFL.
