To be Los Angeles Rams accomplished? Can Aaron Rodgers play with a broken toe for the rest of the season?
The NFL has many questions among its top teams heading into Week 13, but I’m here to try and give some answers in this week’s NFL Power Rankings.
Each week during this season, you actually rank each NFL team in relation to Super Bowl Odds inWynnBET Sportsbook in the BetSided NFL Power Rankings. If you’re looking at last week’s rankings to see where people moved in, you can find it here.
Let’s analyze how each team looked ahead of Week 13:
Arizona has said goodbye and its odds have not changed. Its ratings here also don’t. Kyler Murray’s return could help Cards take the No. 1 spot in NFC.
The Packers took a huge leap in the latest Super Bowl odds, moving into 2nd place behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Aaron Rodgers may have broken his toe, but he’s thrown six points and 692 yards in his last two games.
The Bucs came in from behind to beat the Indianapolis Colts after four touchdowns from Leonard Fournette. Tampa Bay’s defense is being watched, but offense should be able to bail them out more often than not.
Everything kept falling into perfect condition for the chiefs. The Bills and Patriots have two games left, the Ravens are hanging from a rope and the Titans have lost two games in a row. Kansas City has the path to the #1 seed.
What more can you say about the team of Mac Jones and Bill Belichick? The Pats won six in a row to move to 8-4 and lead the AFC East. They beat the AFC’s top seed in Tennessee in week 12 and are trailing a significant 1st place in the conference. Who needs Tom Brady?
Lamar Jackson looked intimidating on Sunday Night Football, but Raven still beat the Browns to lead 8-3 and claim the No. 1 seed in the AFC at the moment. I won’t read too much into a bad game from Lamar, as he has been really great all season.
In typical Bills fashion, they recovered with a landslide victory on Thanksgiving to make it 7-4. If Buffalo can get some consistency over the period, it’s got a shot at AFC’s No. 1 spot.
I’m still out of the Rams, but they’re struggling with another loss in Week 12. Matthew Stafford has to get fit and better if this team is to go anywhere this season.
Another loss in Dallas could mean disaster in the division, but the Eagles lost to the Giants to maintain Dallas’ two-game cushion. They clearly need Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb back, but the penalties cost the Cowboys in Week 12.
The Titans are dying, and dying fast, if it weren’t for Derrick Henry. They may still win the AFC South, but they’ve taken a big step back in the last two weeks.
Cincinnati eliminated the Steelers in Week 12 after a big on-ground game from Joe Mixon. It would be a dramatic change if Zac Taylor took this team to the knockout stages after picking up the top five picks just one season ago.
This is the 49ers! San Francisco went on to beat Minnesota in Week 12 and is now just one game behind the Rams in NFC West. Kyle Shanahan’s team has been on lockdown for the past few weeks.
I don’t think anyone in this world knows the Los Angeles Charger product. A week after their thrilling win over the Steelers, they laid an egg in Denver to lose 6-5. This team won’t get anywhere until they can figure out how to stop the race.
The Colts led the defending champions in Week 12, failing to pull in the lead against the AFC South. However, with the Titans losing again, Indy’s playoff hopes are far from dead at this point in the season.
The Raiders were able to save their season and upset the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. Now, along with the Chargers and Broncos, they are behind the captains in the AFC West by 6-5. This split will be wild at the end of the season.
The Browns picked Lamar Jackson four times and lost. Yes, that happened. Baker Mayfield has really been hit, and the Browns’ offense has taken a turn for the worse over the past few weeks. Will it be Case Keenum time until Baker is healthy?
Broncos are not going away. Denver relied on two Pat Surtain II interceptions and its running game to beat the Chargers in Denver. Each team in the AFC West has more than 500 points each, but the Broncos will need to win a few more qualifying games to actually secure a spot into the post-season.
The Vikings are trailing last in the playoffs at NFC, but they didn’t get the benefit of losing to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12.
The Steelers just don’t take it seriously if Ben Roethlisberger is the best option in midfield. Pittsburgh has been dominated by the Bengals to drop to the 500, and it’s hard to see it continue this season.
The Eagles still have an easy schedule for the rest of the run, but they really squandered their chance against the Giants in Week 12.
The Saints are making a change to Taysom Hill in midfield, but it’s been a case of too little, too late. New Orleans was blown away by the Bill on Thanksgiving and failed to make an insult with Alvin Kamara out of the lineup.
Take if four consecutive wins for Brian Flores, Tua Tagovailoa and teammates. The Dolphins are finally defending like they did in the 2020 season, and Tua has the second-highest completion rate in the NFL.
Three wins in a row and just like that The Washington Soccer Team is back on the hunt in NFC. Taylor Heinicke did just enough to keep Washington afloat, and another 100-yard game from Antonio Gibson helped seal the Week 12 win over Seattle.
Christian McCaffrey’s season is over (again) and so is Carolina’s. Cam Newton struggled during the team’s loss to the Dolphins, and we all know how bad the Panthers would have looked without CMC earlier this year.
It doesn’t make any sense, but the Falcons are on the playoff hunt with a score of 5-6. Atlanta has played badly in recent weeks, but it has won games against bad teams, just as it did with the Jaguars in Week 12.
What happened to Seattle’s offense? The Seahawks have only scored 28 points in three games since Russell Wilson’s return and definitely beat it in the NFC. This team may need to blow things up this season.
The Giants took the win in Week 12, beating the Eagles 13-7, but they still look unsettled in the post-Jason Garrett era. At this point, every win has only made it harder for New York to deliver a quarterback in the 2022 draft.
Yes, the Bears won on Thanksgiving Day. Yes, they needed a last-second goal to beat the Lions. No, Matt Nagy hasn’t been fired yet. Does that include everything?
The Jets beat the Texans in Zach Wilson’s return to the roster, but the rookie still has a lot to be desired in this year’s opening game. Hopefully that will clear up in the final few weeks of the season.
Jacksonville soon fell behind against the Atlanta Falcons and its reckless offense was unlikely to return. Trevor Lawrence needs some help there.
Houston had a chance for a third win of the season, but ended up losing to the lowly Jets. There’s a positive twist: Houston has now met with New York for a better draft pick.
In typical Lions style, they lost again on Thanksgiving Day, this time allowing Andy Dalton to orchestrate a win game to complete the objective. 0-16-1 sounds about right.
