Week 13 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 14. For reference purposes, here’s a link back to last week’s NFL Power Rankings.
BLG’S WEEK 14 NFL POWER RANKINGS
2 - Seattle Seahawks (LW: 3) - They only have two losses this year and one was to the best team in the league. It’s a dangerous group with Russell Wilson leading the way.
4 - New England Patriots (LW: 2) - 42-year-old has Tom Brady has a 81.2 passer rating in his last seven starts. He might finally be washed?
5 - San Francisco 49ers (LW: 4) - There’s no real shame in a three-point road loss to the best team in the NFL. San Fran could lose their grip on the No. 1 seed with a loss to New Orleans this weekend, though.
6 - Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 6) - Surprise, surprise. Andy Reid’s Chiefs followed their bye week with a win. Who could’ve guessed?
7 - Green Bay Packers (LW: 7) - Whether it’s by winning the NFC North or a wild card spot, the Packers will likely be making the playoffs. And Aaron Rodgers is always dangerous in the postseason.
9 - Buffalo Bills (LW: 13) - Maybe the Bills aren’t just the product of the easiest schedule in the NFL? Josh Allen is playing well and the Thanksgiving domination in Dallas was impressive.
10 - Minnesota Vikings (LW: 8) - Kirk Cousins is now 0-8 on Monday Night Football.
11 - Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 11) - Mike Tomlin deserves Coach of the Year consideration. He’s potentially going to lead the Stillers to the playoffs with an undrafted rookie free agent quarterback.
12 - Tennessee Titans (LW: 14) - The Titans are 5-1 since Marcus Mariota was benched for Ryan Tannehill. He’s posted a 113.9 passer rating in those six games. The Titans might be able to make a playoff run.
13 - Los Angeles Rams (LW: 15) - Jared Goff bounced back against a bad defense. The Rams are still on the outside looking in for a wild card spot.
14 - Dallas Cowboys (LW: 10) - The Cowboys are probably going to fire their head coach despite winning the division. No one truly deserves to win the NFC East.
15 - Indianapolis Colts (LW: 12) - Back-to-back losses to Houston and Tennessee have the Colts’ playoff odds down to 11.2%, per Football Outsiders.
16 - Chicago Bears (LW: 20) - The Bears have won two in a row. They beat the G-Men by five points and Detroit by four. Not exactly impressive.
17 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 21) - The Bucs have won three of their last four but they’d be foolish to bring Jameis Winston back. He still has 24 combined interceptions and fumbles in his last seven starts.
18 - Carolina Panthers (LW: 16) - Kyle Allen has throw eight touchdown to 10 interceptions in his last six starts. He’s also fumbled four times, including twice in Sunday’s loss to Washington.
19 - Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 17) - The Eagles were in desperate need of a “get right” win. Instead, they lost to the team ranked dead last in point differential and DVOA. The Eagles are not a good football team.
20 - Oakland Raiders (LW: 18) - The Raiders have the fifth worst point differential in the NFL. They should probably be even lower in my rankings.
21 - Denver Broncos (LW: 25) - Drew Lock wasn’t anything special in his first NFL start but he didn’t look out of place, either. Maybe there’s reason to be hopeful?
22 - Cleveland Browns (LW: 19) - Cleveland had an opportunity to make a run at a wild card spot with a win in Pittsburgh but they blew it. The new Browns are similarly disappointing as the old ones.
23 - Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 22) - The Chargers are perpetually the most heartbreaking team in the NFL.
24 - Atlanta Falcons (LW: 23) - The Falcons came out of the bye with two straight wins before following that with two straight losses. Dan Quinn’s back on the hot seat.
25 - Washington Redskins (LW: 28) - If the season ended today, Washington would pick No. 3 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. And yet they’re actually still alive in the NFC East! What a pathetic division.
26 - Miami Dolphins (LW: 30) - The Dolphins’ previous season-high for points scored was 26 before shredding the Eagles’ defense for 37 in their third win. Brian Flores outcoached Philly’s staff.
27 - New York Jets (LW: 24) - Leave it to Adam Gase to see the Jets’ three-game win streak snapped by a 16-point loss to the only winless team in the NFL.
28 - Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 25) - The Jaguars are 0-4 and have been outscored by a combined 73 points in Nick Foles starts this season. To no surprise, BDN has been benched for Gardner Minshew.
29 - Arizona Cardinals (LW: 27) - Kyler Murray’s worst game of his rookie season contributed to the Cards’ fifth loss in a row.
30 - Detroit Lions (LW: 29) - The Lions only lost by four points despite starting their third string undrafted rookie free agent quarterback. Could be worse but that’s still their fifth consecutive loss.
31 - Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 32) - The Bengals are finally on the board! And more importantly they’re still No. 1 in the 2020 NFL Draft order.
32 - New York Giants (LW: 31) - The Giants are now owners of the league’s longest losing streak with eight straight losses. Hard to win with turnover machine Daniel Jones under center.
