What a strange weekend of NFL. The Denver Broncos began this wacky weekend with a Thursday loss and from there it ended up being the Top 3 seeded teams in the AFC all losing games.
From what I’ve seen this weekend and this season, the Seattle Seahawks are taking over my No. 1 overall ranking of the 32 NFL teams with their 23-0 win over the New York Giants.
As for the rest of the league, not only did the Broncos lose, but the New Orleans Saints, New England Patriots and the Cincinnati Bengals all lost games, with those teams all being highly ranked in the AFC or NFC Playoff seedings.
Not to forget the Dallas Cowboys blew a 23-point lead to the Matt Flynn-led Green Bay Packers, at home, with the Dallas defense forgetting there was a second half to play and Tony Romo forgetting what team he played for. Good for them the Philadelphia Eagles were defeated by the Minnesota Vikings.
Not to forget the Houston Texans lost their 12th consecutive game of the season, and the AFC No. 3 seeded Cincinnati Bengals failed to take advantage of a New England Patriots loss.
With that said, here are my Week 15 NFL Power Rankings. The numbers in parentheses are their ranking from last week.
