Week 12 of the 2019 NFL regular season schedule is officially in the books. Now it’s time to see how all 32 teams stack up heading into Week 13. For reference purposes, here’s a link back to last week’s NFL Power Rankings.
BLG’S WEEK 13 NFL POWER RANKINGS
1 - Baltimore Ravens (Last Week: 1) - The Ravens are so fun to watch. Lamar Jackson is your 2019 NFL MVP.
2 - New England Patriots (LW: 2) - The Pats’ offense ain’t great but it doesn’t really matter because they can win with their defense and special teams.
3 - Seattle Seahawks (LW: 3) - With a win in Philly, the Seahawks clinched their eight straight finish above .500. Seattle’s never had a losing season in the Russell Wilson era.
4 - San Francisco 49ers (LW: 4) - The 49ers started their challenging three-game stretch with a big win over Green Bay. Now let’s see how they fare against Baltimore and New Orleans.
5 - New Orleans Saints (LW: 6) - The Saints won but they’re not looking incredibly invincible. They were blown out at home a few weeks ago before suffering a close call this past weekend.
6 - Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 7) - The Chiefs return from their week off to host Oakland. We all know how good Andy Reid is coming off the bye.
7 - Green Bay Packers (LW: 5) - The Packers suffered a 29-point loss coming off their bye. They’re good but they’re not elite.
8 - Minnesota Vikings (LW: 8) - Minny returns from their bye to face Seattle on Monday Night Football. It’s a big game for potentially determining the No. 5 seed in the NFC playoff picture. Both teams should covet that spot since the winner could get to play the winner of the NFC Least in the playoffs.
9 - Houston Texans (LW: 13) - Houston has the AFC South lead with five games left to play.
10 - Dallas Cowboys (LW: 9) - The Cowboys still haven’t beat a team with a winning record. And yet they’re in good position to win the division.
11 - Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 13) - The Stillers would be the No. 6 seed in the AFC playoff picture if the season ended today but it’s a competitive field. Pittsburgh has a decision to make at starting quarterback between Mason Rudolph or Devlin Hodges.
12 - Indianapolis Colts (LW: 12) - A loss to Houston hurts but the Colts are still in the hunt. Their schedule is manageable enough to at least make a wild card push.
13 - Buffalo Bills (LW: 17) - The Bills haven’t beaten anybody good but at least they’re winning. Still a prime candidate to be one-and-done in the playoffs.
14 - Tennessee Titans (LW: 18) - The Titans are 4-1 since Marcus Mariota was benched for Ryan Tannehill. He’s posted a 111.4 passer rating in those five games.
15 - Los Angeles Rams (LW: 10) - Sean McVay and Jared Goff continue to be exposed as frauds despite having weapons to work with.
16 - Carolina Panthers (LW: 15) - Big bounce-back game for Kyle Allen almost allowed the Panthers to pull off an upset in New Orleans. The Panthers play hard.
17 - Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 14) - The Eagles have scored 13 points on their last 25 drives, excluding a garbage time touchdown drive. That’s pathetic. Carson Wentz is struggling and he’s getting no help.
18 - Oakland Raiders (LW: 11) - So much for the Raiders’ winning streak. A 31-point loss to NYJ is ... let me check ... pretty bad!
19 - Cleveland Browns (LW: 23) - Not impossible that the Browns could make a playoff push for the No. 6 seed.
20 - Chicago Bears (LW: 25) - Mitchell Trubisky is bad but the G-Men are even worse.
21 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 26) - The Bucs won but human turnover machine Jameis Winston is now up to 24 combined interceptions and fumbles in his last six starts.
22 - Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 21) - The Bolts return from their bye to play in Denver.
23 - Atlanta Falcons (LW: 19) - The Falcons had two nice blowout wins in a row there before losing to Tampa. Back to reality.
24 - New York Jets (LW: 28) - Don’t look now but the once lifeless Jets have won three in a row.
24 - Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 20) - Nick Foles is struggling and some Jaguars fans want to see him replaced with Garnder Minshew. The Jags’ playoff hopes are essentially dead (2% per Football Outsiders).
25 - Denver Broncos (LW: 22) - Who could’ve guessed the Broncos wouldn’t be a good team this year by starting Joe Flacco and “Brandon Allen” at quarterback?
27 - Arizona Cardinals (LW: 27) - The Cards return from their bye to host a struggling LAR team. Maybe Arizona can get their fourth win?
28 - Washington Redskins (LW: 31) - The good news is that Dwanye Haskins is no longer winless as a starter. The bad news is that he has a 55.9 passer rating this season.
29 - Detroit Lions (LW: 24) - Four losses in a row. Detroit should just shut Matthew Stafford down for the season and work on getting a better draft pick.
30 - Miami Dolphins (LW: 29) - The Dolphins were looking competitive for a bit there but they’ve gone back to being downright awful. Can’t ruin the tank job!
31 - New York Giants (LW: 30) - Seven losses in a row for the G-Men. There’s talk the Giants might replace Pat Shurmur with ... Jason Garrett! Long live Dave Gettleman.
32 - Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 32) - The Bengals have a two-game lead for the No. 1 overall pick with five weeks to play.
