Ranking all 32 NFL Teams.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

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.
