Nothing has changed for the Houston Texans in terms of their power rankings position this week, staying in the 32nd position in the Pete Prisco Weekly Power Rankings on CBS Sports.
The Texans this past week lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-20, leading to the firing of head coach Gary Kubiak. That loss was the 11th consecutive loss for the Texans, as they are 2-11 overall this season.
Prisco said about the Texans:
“They fired Gary Kubiak after their 11th consecutive loss last week to the Jaguars. Who could have imagined this season for the Texans?”
Indianapolis is the highest ranking AFC South team at No. 11, followed by the Tennessee Titans at No. 18 and the Jaguars at No. 25.
The AFC had three of the Top 5 teams in the rankings with the Denver Broncos at the No. 1 spot, followed by the New England Patriots at No. 2 and the Cincinnati Bengals in the fifth spot.
Seattle was third and the New Orleans Saints were ranked fourth.
I have no problems with any of these rankings really, because none of the Top 5 teams have really stepped out and ran away where I can say they are the “best” team in the NFL this season.
If I were to pick a team in the NFC to go to the Super Bowl, it would be the Seahawks. I pick them because if they gain homefield advantage, there is no team in the NFC that can or will beat them in Seattle.
As for the AFC, I think the Patriots rank just ahead of the Broncos, for the simple fact the Patriots already defeated Denver this season.
The Texans are the Texans and deserve to be 32nd overall. Enough said.
