32. Houston Texans (1-11-1) (Previously: 32)

It was a hell of an effort against the Cowboys, but Houston’s first-overall pick in 2023 remains safe.

31. Chicago Bears (3-10) (Previously: 31)


30. Denver Broncos (3-10) (Previously: 30)

Covering against the Chiefs was maybe the most impressive thing the Broncos have done all season.

29. New Orleans Saints (4-9) (Previously: 28)


28. Arizona Cardinals (4-9) (Previously: 24)

Kyler Murray’s expected ACL tear officially ends what has been the ultimate nightmare season for the Cardinals.

27. Los Angeles Rams (4-9) (Previously: 29)

Baker Mayfield’s storybook touchdown drive came at the expense of every Lions fan hoping the Rams wouldn’t win another game this season. Detroit owns Los Angeles’ 2023 first-round pick.

26. Indianapolis Colts (4-8-1) (Previously: 26)


25. Atlanta Falcons (5-8) Previously: 23)

It’s Desmond Ridder szn.

24. Pittsburgh Steelers (5-8) (Previously: 21)

Any interest in watching the Steelers went out the window when Kenny Pickett got hurt.

23. Las Vegas Raiders (5-8) (Previously: 20)

The Raiders have blown four double digit halftime leads. Last Thursday’s loss to the Rams was as ugly as it gets.

22. Cleveland Browns (5-8) (Previously: 17)

Deshaun Watson has looked downright awful in his two games back from suspension. Things won’t get any easier for him in Week 15 against the Ravens.

21. Carolina Panthers (5-8) (Previously: 27)

All of a sudden, the Panthers look like a football team that is just a quarterback away from being the best team in the NFC South. Heck, they might already be the best team in the NFC South.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars (5-8) (Previously: 25)

You can already hear the 2023 Jaguars hype train leaving the station.

19. Green Bay Packers (5-8) (Previously: 19)


18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7) (Previously: 14)

Bad football team.

17. New York Giants (7-5-1) (Previously: 16)

The Lions, not the Seahawks might be New York’s biggest competition to secure a playoff spot. It will take a win over the Colts in Week 17 and one more victory against either the Commanders, Vikings or Eagles.

16. Los Angeles Chargers (7-6) (Previously: 22)

The Chargers control their own destiny when it comes to making the playoffs. With Mike Williams and Keenan Allen finally healthy, maybe it is possible they go on a run to close the season. Justin Herbert was masterful on Sunday against the Dolphins.

15. Seattle Seahawks (7-6) (Previously: 13)

The Seahawks can’t run the football, nor can they stop the run. Seattle seems destined to get blown out by the 49ers on Thursday and see their playoff hopes dwindle even further.

14. Detroit Lions (6-7) (Previously: 18)

Dan Campbell’s job should be secured in 2023 with the Lions surging as winners five of their last six games. It may be too little too late, but Detroit sticking around in the NFC’s playoff picture is impressive nonetheless.

13. New England Patriots (7-6) (Previously: 15)

The Patriots are going to find themselves in the playoffs for a second straight season, only to get blown out in the first round… for a second straight season.

12. Tennessee Titans (7-6) (Previously: 10)

The Titans are in a freefall having lost three-straight games, two of which in blowout fashion.

11. New York Jets (7-6) (Previously: 12)

The Jets are currently the AFC’s No. 8 seed and will need a win against Detroit in Week 15 while pulling for the Bills to take care of business against Miami.

10. Washington Commanders (7-5-1) (Previously: 11)

A win over the Giants in Week 15 will all but assure the Commanders of a playoff spot.

9. Miami Dolphins (8-5) (Previously: 8)

Back-to-back stinkers for Tua Tagovailoa is killing vibes in South Beach.

8. Minnesota Vikings (10-3) (Previously: 7)

It was a beautiful Sunday for the “Vikings are frauds” crowd.

7. Baltimore Ravens (9-4) (Previously: 9)

That Ravens defense is good enough to weather the storm until Lamar Jackson gets back, but the offense is limited enough to give me pause about a potential run in the playoffs.

6. San Francisco 49ers (9-4) (Previously: 6)

Brock Purdy appears to be a more than serviceable replacement for Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers Super Bowl hopes remain sky high.

5. Cincinnati Bengals (9-4) (Previously: 5)

Injuries to Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins add some concern to an otherwise scorching run for Cincinnati.

4. Kansas City Chiefs (10-3) (Previously: 4)

Patrick Mahomes picked the perfect game to throw three interceptions.

3. Dallas Cowboys (10-3) (Previously: 3)

Dallas has a perfect bounce back opportunity on the road against the Jaguars in Week 15 to help us forget about Sunday’s monstrosity of a performance against Houston.

2. Buffalo Bills (10-3) (Previously: 2)

The Bills are 7.5-point favorites against the reeling Dolphins with the opportunity to avenge one of their three losses on the season.

1. Philadelphia Eagles (12-1) (Previously: 1)

The Eagles are the team to beat in the NFC, but securing home-field advantage will be paramount with the Cowboys and 49ers surging.
