We finally have some consistency in Week 16's Power Rankings with he Panthers, Cardinals, Patriots, Seahawks and Steelers occupying the top five yet again. Can the Chiefs break through this week?
As far as the top 10 teams in our Power Rankings go, this week was rather, well, uneventful. The Panthers had to dodge a Giants upset attempt and the Steelers rallied past the Broncos, but all in all there was very minimal movement among the league’s best teams.
Of course, at least one of those potential AFC contenders will wind up sitting out the playoffs entirely. Only three of Denver, Kansas City, the Jets and Pittsburgh can play beyond Week 17—all of those teams are again ranked between spots five and nine.
There should be drama over the season’s final two weeks. This is how the teams stack up as they turn for home.
