Week 17 power rankings by me for Patriots Gab, thanks for stopping by!

Let’s get straight to it.

1. Cardinals:

I’ve been wanting to put them right here for a long time now because they are and have been the best team in football for the past few weeks.

2. Panthers:

They lost, finally, but they are still a great team, but I still believe that offense will hold them back in the postseason.

3. Chiefs:

Time to say, they look good and hot and dangerous.

4. Patriots:

Barely do I have them here. They have to play so much better, but they get a pass for holding their own without key players.

5. Broncos:

That defense is really good, but that offense………..Not so much, but when a healthy Manning gets back, they could be really scary.

6. Jets:

I don’t like putting them here but they earned it.

7. Redskins:

Am I crazy for putting them here? Maybe, but there is no denying they are hot right now. Plus, Kirk Cousin is a joy at QB, he’s too funny.

8. Seahawks:

I still don’t think they are the 2013 or 2014 Seahawks, but they are still dangerous. The Rams just have their number.

9. Steelers:

They might have lost their way out of the postseason, there is still a chance, but no doubt they are a solid team.

10. Bengals:

I have never one time believed in them because they are a deer in headlights in the big game team regardless whose at QB.

11. Packers: 

Aaron Rodgers makes them dangerous, a terrible OL and defense cancels him out.

12. Vikings:

Good team, but not great, they don’t fare well against elite teams.

13. Raiders:

You can tell they are young with a bright future ahead.

14. Bills:

Up and down and a circus like any true Rex Ryan coached team. Right now, they are currently up and I’m pulling for them to ruin the Jets season.

15. Texans:

Weeden did good for them in the last game, but that offense, holds them back from being a top ten team.

16. Falcons:

In the last two games, they are back to being a decent team. They defeated the only undefeated team in a big way with a big chip on their shoulder.

17. Rams:

A game manager at QB, a great RB, and solid defense has the Rams cooking wins.

18. Lions: 

The Lions are a hard team to figure out. Up and down, they kind of remind me of Atlanta.

19. Saints:

Drew Brees threw all over that Jags defense, he and Sean Payton are not the problem.

20. Bears:

I like them for next year if they can get better defenders.

21. Giants:

They have given up on this season with nothing to play for.

22. Colts:

They beat the Titans, and that counts.

23. Buccaneers:

They are young and this year is the only excuse they get.

24. Eagles:

They are a bad team now without their head coach.

25. Jaguars:

Better defense, smarter QB play, a bit better running game, or something I’m not sure what they are missing that keeps making them this bad.

26. Ravens:

They played their hearts out against the Steelers. Good for them.

27. Dolphins:

Awful team.

28. Browns: 

They are still the Browns.

29. Chargers:

They need a new coach and defense.

30. Cowboys:

They get a pass this year because they lost Romo, but go get Derrick Henry and everything will be set for a postseason push.

31. 49ers:

They need a new GM then a new head coach and QB. Or, go get Chip and keep Colin.

32. Titans:

They will go hard for Chip and why not? They stink.
