TST Power Rankings: Week 15

The difference: She didn't do "Seahawk Rules"
The difference: She didn't do "Seahawk Rules"


The home stretch! There weren't many shifts this week, but is it just me or is the middle of the league stacked with teams that just REFUSE to clinch a playoff spot? It's going to be a wild second half of December has teams fight to the death over the 5th and 6th seeds. All this and I'll be without RedZone, which is probably the best invention since sliced bread.

Rankings after the jump.

Team Doug Eric Avg (+/-) Say What?
Packers 1 1

Hard to believe we might be looking at a second team to go undefeated in less than five years. Do they have what it takes to finish the sweep? -Eric
Saints 2 2

As injuries mount for G.B, the Saints remain surprisingly healthy down the stretch. A re-match with G.B is a safe bet, but how will Louisiana boys do in January at Green Bay? - Doug
Ravens 3 3

+3

The problem with this team is that they are not consistent. What happens if they throw out a clunker game during January? - Eric
Steelers 5 4

It's all on Big Ben. He's so banged up, one of these days he's not going to get back up to rescue this team - Doug
Texans 4 6

Congrats to the Texans on their first playoff appearance. All it took was no Peyton Manning and they finally did it! - Eric
49ers 7 5

Their game this week against the Steelers is crucial to having a winning tempo to ride into the post season after they were dismantled by AZ last week. - Doug
Patriots 6 7

Ahh, the life of Gronk. *Note to self- draft Gronk next year in fantasy football… - Eric
Giants 8 8

The "Boys in Blue" are beginning their dark horse rumble. Remember what happened last time? - Doug
Broncos 10 9

You just can't stop Tebow. He is a force of nature. How did they kick a 59 yard field goal? Tebow willed it through the goalposts, that's how. -Eric
Falcons 9 12

10

+3

A spiffy and talented team that runs like a badly tuned car. Will their Julio Jones draft move backfire? - Doug
Cowboys 12 10

11

-3

They just don't want to win the division, do they? - Eric
Lions 13 11

-3

Barely beating bad teams says their season is all but over. If they do make the post season, they'll be one and out - Doug
Jets 11 14

13

+2

I'm hoping that they'll get knocked out of the playoffs before the season ends, because they have some serious problems. -Eric
Bengals 15

14

-3

The worst owner in the NFL has two OROY candidates, a great defense and no one in the stands watching... Is L.A. going to come calling with check book in hand? - Doug
Titans 14 16

15

Jake Locker came in and…didn't do horrible. These recent "reach" QB picks sure have worked out so far. Thanks, Mel. -Eric
Raiders 16 15

This is a massively talented team that just couldn't win to save its life - Doug
Bears 18 17

Like the Bears season, Lovie Smith's job security is fading fast. Not even the Martz could save the offense (of course, you should probably have expected him to kill the offense, literally). -Eric
Chargers 17 19

18

0

Ranked this high because this is the time of year their players realize they might not have jobs next year - Doug
Seahawks 19 18

Are Skittles the 13th man now? Perhaps it's the 14th, since Marshawn Lynch has the power of more than one man. -Eric
Cardinals 20 21

This team has nothing to be ashamed of this season. They will be a Top 8 team next season - Doug
Dolphins 21 20

So where do they go from here? The team now has a dead season while they wait for a new coach. -Eric
Chiefs 22 23

22

-2

I've come to think that Pioli should have been shown the door, not Haley. The Lex Luthor look alike will be a burden on any new coach - Doug
Eagles 24 22

23

+1

Maybe DeSean Jackson doesn't look that impressive after all…- Eric
Bills 23 24

24

-3

Like a Super Nova, they flashed in the NFL sky. Their new reality is they are no where near good enough to repeat their winning ways next season - Doug
Panthers 25 25

Cam Newton looks like the best number one pick in recent memory. Can they get a repeat performance from next year's first rounder?- Eric
Bucs 27 26

0

Josh Freeman needs a new QB coach, Morris needs to grow a pair, and a certain CB needs to know jail time isn't far off if he doesn't grow up - Doug
Browns 26 28

Does Peyton Hillis have a future in Cleveland? Survey says no. -Eric
Redskins 28 27

Look for Dan Snyder to make a play for Luck or a trade for Sam Bradford - Doug
Vikings 29 29

This team has more talent than their record shows. Can they put it together for next year with a nice, juicy, draft pick? - Eric
Jaguars 30 30

Up a notch from last week because the Rams out-dismal-ed them - Doug
Rams 31 32

Still holding on my thesis that the Colts could stomp the Rams. - Eric

Maybe they should move to Toronto? Irsay is going to clean house and wonder why Peyton Manning retires just before the start of the 2012 season - Doug
