The 12th week of the 2018 NFL schedule is in the books. Now is the time to see where all 32 teams are ranked. For reference, here's a link to last week's NFL Power Rankings.
BLG'S WEEK 14 NFL POWER RANKINGS
1 – Los Angeles Rams (Last Week: 2) – The Rams have been back up from losing to New Orleans since the first time. It only took 13 weeks to formally win the NFC West.
2 – Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 3) – The loss of Kareem Hunt undoubtedly hurt the upper limit of this team. However, with Pat Mahomes, the Chiefs are still in pretty good shape.
4 – New England Patriots (LW: 5) – Must play well every year at AFC East.
5 – Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 6) – The Bolts have just won a game they NEVER win. Maybe this is your year ?!
6 – Houston Texans (LW: 7) – Nine consecutive victories for the Texans. Looking at their remaining schedule (IND, @NYJ, @PHI, JAX), it is not impossible for them to win.
7 – Seattle Seahawks (LW: 9) – Seattle is a safe bet for the # 5 NFC playoff image. They are more vulnerable from home, but for number 4 like Dallas or Philadelphia they are still a serious problem.
8 – Chicago Bears (LW: 4) – in 1: 1: 1 Chase Daniel is about what you would expect.
9 – Baltimore Ravens (LW: 11) – The Ravens are in good position for an AFC placeholder. You might even be able to steal the AFC North from Pittsburgh.
10 – Dallas Cowboys (LW: 13) – It's a pretty impressive feat to keep the Saints at just 10 points. The defense of Dallas is legitimate. So much so that it can negate Dak Prescott, who wants to give the game away. Probably not good enough if they win with 13 points in the playoffs.
11 – Denver Broncos (LW: 14) – Do you remember when the Broncos were "sellers" to the NFL Dealing Deadline? Well, now they are back in the mix for a placeholder. Denver came in sixth this week at DVOA. With a loss from Chicago they could jump to fifth place.
12 – Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 10) – Two consecutive defeats have weakened access to AFC North. The Steelers get Oakland this week, but then they have to play in consecutive games New England and New Orleans.
13 – Indianapolis Colts (LW: 8) – It was an overall good season for Frank Reich, but it was closed. In a key match this is not a good sight.
14 – Minnesota Vikings (LW: 12) – John DeFilippo draws the wrath of Mike Zimmer, and Kirk Cousins is now 32-35-1, starring 4-22 teams that finish the season with 9+ victories , and 8-25 against teams finishing the season with 8+ wins.
15 – Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 17) – The Eagles' season is still alive for at least another week. Philadelphia can take over the leadership of the division with a win in Dallas.
16 – Tennessee Titans (LW: 20) – Who the hell knows what to make of this Titans team. You deserve a rank that is not even a real number.
17 – Miami Dolphins (LW: 22) – In the hunt for an AFC placeholder as seventh starting position for this conference.
18 – Cleveland Browns (LW: 15) – The Browns' chance to reach the playoffs hit Houston with a decisive loss.
19 – Carolina Panthers (LW: 16) – Cheats team that has lost four in a row. Good thing Philly did not blow a 17-0 lead for this team.
20 – Washington Redskins (LW: 19) – It does not look too good when Mark Sanchez is their starter for the rest of 2018.  21 – Detroit Lions (LW: 21) – It seems painful that the Lions need a new offensive coordinator.
22 – Green Bay Packers (LW: 18) – The Packers have finally done the right thing and fired Mike McCarthy. All it took was a miserable home defeat against Arizona.
23 – Atlanta Falcons (LW: 23) – On the way to the season, some thought the Falcons had one of the League's most talented squads. There are 4-8 to 12 games.
24 – New York Giants (LW: 26) – The Giants collect meaningless winnings that only serve to ruin their design. Be grateful for Pat Shurmur.
25 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 27) – If Jameis Winston plays better, could Dirk Koetter's job be spared? Although the offensive success is more attributable to Todd Monken.
26 – Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 28) – Impressive victory for the Jags to rule out a Colts offense that looked really good lately. Hard to reach if Cody Kessler is your starting quarterback.
27 – Buffalo Bills (LW: 24) – The Bills did not look incompetent since November 4th. This is a compliment.
28 – Arizona Cardinals (LW: 31) – Well, you can not say that the players gave up on Steve Wilks completely.
29 – Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 25) – The Marvin Lewis era could be FINALLY over. Really for this time.
30 – New York Jets (LW: 29) – The Jets have the longest defeat in the league with six games. The end of the Todd Bowles era is certainly near.
31 – Oakland Raiders (LW: 31) – Officially eliminated from the playoffs.
32 – San Francisco 49ers (LW: 32) – Same business as Oakland. Bay Area Football? More like Bad Area Football. Done.
