Week 12 NFL Power Rankings: Finally Some Moves

The first three teams in the post’s weekly NFL power rankings recorded impressive wins in the 11th week, but half of the top 10 teams lost, so there was a big move in the rankings thereafter.

The Colts, Seahawks, and Titans all took advantage of the defeats of Dolphins, Ravens, and Cardinals to return to the high-rent districts during Thanksgiving Week.

1. Kansas City Chiefs, 9-1 (Last week: 1)

Patrick Mahomes and the defending Super Bowl Champion opened a three-game cushion in the AFC West and left Las Vegas on Sunday night to win their fifth straight title after winning their final and final victory.Next: Sunday at Tampa Bay

2. Pittsburgh Steelers, 10-0 (2)

The Steelers are the first perfect 10-0 in franchise history after cruising the Spiral Jackson Building. Their defense leads the league with the fewest points allowed (17.4 ppg) and most takeouts (21), while receiver Chase Claypool leads all rookies with 10 touchdowns.Next: Thursday vs Baltimore

3. New Orleans Saints, 8-2 (3)

At the first NFL start, Tasam Hill threw 233 yards and made two touchdowns, but Sunday’s eight sack (by 3 Cameron Jordan) and two interceptions against Matt Ryan and the Falcons.Next: Sunday in Denver

4. Buffalo Bills, 7-3 (6)

With Miami’s defeat to Denver, Bills was able to stay number one in Byweek’s AFC East. They will meet the dolphins in the final round of the regular season to see which team will probably end the match at New England’s 11-year division top.Next: Sunday vs. LA Chargers

5. Indianapolis Colts, 7-3 (12)

Colts’ second-placed defense was forced to make four turnovers on Sunday, keeping Rogers and Packers down to three points after half-time. This includes a significant fumble recovery for the first minute of overtime. An impressive victory will set the number one showdown in the AFC South this week.Next: Sunday vs. Tennessee

6. Green Bay Packers, 7-3 (4)

Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s overtime failure was a killer, but Packers’ defense gave Philip Rivers and Colts 420 yards and 34 points. Puck will again be able to defeat flawed divisional enemies this week to take the lead in three games in NFC North.Next: Sunday Night vs Chicago

7. Seattle Seahawks, 7-3 (11)

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks made a statement in the NFC West area last Thursday, outpacing Arizona’s rise, responding to a rough stretch of three losses in four games. They can help shape the crazy NFC East rankings with this week’s prime-time win.Next: Monday in Philadelphia

8. Tennessee Titans, 7-3 (13)

The Titans refused to leave in pursuit of the AFC playoffs, giving Lamar Jackson and the declining Ravens a significant win on Sunday. NFL rush leaders Derrick Henry and Dalvin Cook, Minnesota have already exceeded 1,000 yards this season.Next: Sunday in Indianapolis

9. Los Angeles Rams, 7-3 (10)

Aaron Donald and the Rams’ top-class defense kept Tom Brady down to 216 yards and picked him up twice on Monday night. Jared Goff hooked up with Cooper Kup and Robert Woods, winning a total of 23 catches and 275 yards out of a 376-yard pass. Next: Sunday vs. San Francisco.

10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 7-4 (5)

Brady and Bucks have alternated wins and losses in the last four weeks and need to deal with Mahomes and the league’s highest-scoring attacks before they finally say goodbye in the thirteenth week.Next: Sunday vs. Kansas City

11. Arizona Cardinals, 6-4 (8)

12. Cleveland Browns, 7-3 (15)

13. Miami Dolphins, 6-4 (7)

14. Baltimore Ravens, 6-4 (9)

15. Las Vegas Raiders, 6-4 (14)

16. Chicago Bears, 5-5 (17)

17. Minnesota Vikings, 4-6 (16)

18. New England Patriots, 4-6 (18)

19. San Francisco 49ers, 4-6 (20)

20. Denver Broncos, 4-6 (22)

21. Detroit Lions, 4-6 (19)

22. Carolina Panthers, 4-7 (24)

23. Philadelphia Eagles, 3-6-1 (21)

24. Atlanta Falcons, 3-7 (23)

25. Giants, 3-7 (25)

If Philadelphia loses to Seattle, that’s probably all happening for the Giants, who could hold the number one share in the NFC East by this time next week. With Joe Burrow’s terrible injury at the end of the season, there’s no reason the Giants won’t win their fourth win in six games this week.Next: Sunday in Cincinnati

26. Houston Texans, 3-7 (27)

27. Dallas Cowboys, 3-7 (29)

28. Los Angeles Chargers, 3-7 (28)

29. Washington Football Team, 3-7 (30)

30. Cincinnati Bengals, 2-7-1 (26)

31. Jacksonville Jaguars, 1-9 (31)

32. Jet, 0-10 (32)

Adam Gace’s team’s 0-16 season focuses on five consecutive games against teams with winning records for the Dolphins, Raiders, Seahawks, Rams and Browns.Next: Sunday vs. Miami
