Power Rankings

Here are my power rankings after week 14:

1. Indianapolis Colts (13-0) - On the road to perfection, but will the starters play the entire game this Thursday night @ Jacksonville.

2. New Orleans Saints (13-0) - I am still convinced the Sean Payton will continue to play his #1's.

3. San Diego Chargers (10-3) - The Chargers keep winning games and their defense continues to get better each week. This team is a playoff contender.

4. Minnesota Vikings (11-2) - The Vikings bounced back and beat up on the Bengals. Brett Farve looked sharp and AP looked like he's coming out again.

5. Philadelphia Eagles (9-4) - The Eagles will be tested this week against the G-Men, a win would make this team a legitamate contender in the NFC.

6. Arizona Cardinals (8-5) - This team is dangerous, but the lack of focus and preparation for a nationally televised Monday night road game to lock up the division scares me a bit.

7. Cincinnati Bengals (9-4) - Huge test last week against Minnesota, and their inability to stretch the field with Carson Palmer cost them the game.

8. Green Bay Packers (9-4) - They haven't been truly tested, but this team is playing very good football.

9. Denver Broncos (8-5) - The Broncos played a good football game against Indy last week, picking Peyton off 3 times. But their inability to capitalize on the turnovers left them on the short side.

10. New England Patriots (8-5) - The Patriots have been exposed, Randy Moss is being a baby, and the Patriots are not convincingly beating teams.

11. Baltimore Ravens (7-6) - This team didn't just win on Sunday, the destroyed the Lions. That is what you do to bad teams. I think the Ravens are on the way back to old form.

12. New York Giants (7-6) - Played hard against Philly. I like their final three games to get them in the playoffs.

13. Dallas Cowboys (8-5) - @ New Orleans this week, then @ Washington, then against Philly. Tough road for the Boys.

14. Miami Dolphins (7-6) - The Phins are still breathing. But one loss just about does it.

15. New York Jets (7-6) - With a win this week against Atlanta, the Jets would be 8-6 heading into the final two weeks where they play @ Indy and home against Cincinnati. Both Indy and Cincy will have clinched by then, could the Jets sneak in the back door to the wildcard?

16. Jacksonville Jaguars (7-6) - Their schedule has Mia, and Cle left on it, but also Indy and NE...9-7 won't do it in the AFC, they need to get to 10 wins.

----cannot lose in order to keep playoff hopes alive-----

17. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-7) - Experience must step up for this team. Without Polamalu, the Steelers are 2-6, this defense is better than how they have been performing.

-------will not make playoff's------
Atlanta 6-7
San Francisco 6-7
Tennessee 6-7
Houston 6-7
Buffalo 5-8
Carolina 5-8
Chicago 5-8
Seattle 5-8
Washington 4-9
Kansas City 3-10
Oakland 4-9
Detroit 2-11
St. Louis 1-12
Cleveland 2-11
Tampa Bay 1-12
