Last one of the regular season, so enjoy!

1. Cardinals:

I think the Cardinals are the best team in the NFL right now and that lost to Seattle changes nothing. I don’t think Arizona gave it their best college try just because they already had a bye week and I don’t think they cared too much for the first overall seed. They are the most complete team in the playoffs.

2. Seahawks: 

They are good and they are scary. They’ve been to the Super Bowl the past two years and are a hard out. They are hot right now.

3. Redskins:

I love this team. They might be hotter than the Seahawks right now. I didn’t care who the Redskins drew in the wildcard, I believed they would win, and now we know it’s the Packers, I still believe that.

4. Panthers:

Only one loss, that is impressive, but I’m not sure they are playoff ready. They will be a very tough team for anybody to beat.

5. Broncos:

Good defense and a healthy Manning make them oh so dangerous and scary. I hope they get put out in the first round so the Patriots will not travel to them.

6. Patriots:

Right now, they look like the second best AFC team, just being honest. They aren’t healthy and unless that changes, we are looking at a short playoff stint.

7. Chiefs:

A veteran group of players, solid QB, solid running backs, okay wide outs, good tight end, and a good defense and oh yeah they are the hottest team in the AFC. That’s a recipe for a Super Bowl.

8. Steelers: 

Big Ben and Brown, what a team. They are solid but not sold on great just yet.

9. Vikings: 

They looked good beating the crap out of the Packers and winning the division, but I doubt they will go very far in the postseason. They aren’t there yet, or at least that’s what I think.

10. Packers:

They are having the same problem as the Patriots. Unhealthy wide out core, and no protection for Aaron Rodgers.

11. Bengals:

The Bengals are a solid team with and without Dalton, but I doubt they end their winless playoff streak this year.

12. Texans:

I think they are good enough to be in the postseason, but without an actual QB, I just don’t buy them as a scary team.

13. Jets:

They choked away the playoffs with a loss to the Bills and I was pretty happy about that, but they won 10 games, defeated the Pats one time, and looked pretty good overall this season.

14. Bills:

You just knew Rex Ryan would get his guys ready to play the regular season “Super Bowl” for his team and keep his old team out of the postseason. It was awesome and epic and all of that. Ryan keeps the Jets from the postseason, one more time.

15. Raiders:

They are growing up so fast. They had an up and down season, but showed a ton of promise. They have wide outs and a QB. They are getting better.

16. Lions:

They started off badly, but ended on a great note. They started the season 1-7 and ended it 6-2. Wow.

17. Saints:

Drew Brees isn’t the problem, Tim Hightower, and Ben Watson aren’t either, it’s the defense.

18. Colts: 

Finished with an 8-8 record, but for a team that was suppose to make the Super Bowl that is disappointing. They lost Andrew Luck during the season, but even when he played they were terrible. They kept their head coach, Pats fans should be happy about that.

19. Bears:

Jay Cutler, Langford, Jeffery, and Zach Miller are all players you can build around and oh yeah, the offense isn’t the problem. It’s the defense, fix it and the OL and you have a good team.

20. Falcons:

I don’t know what to say anymore. They need defense, but why can’t they score more than what they do. I don’t understand this team.

21. Giants:

They haven’t made the postseason since 2011, the year they won the Super Bowl, which makes Tom Coughlin leaving New York make sense, but they haven’t been the worst team either. They should be so much better than they have been.

22. Rams:

Truly a QB away.

23. Eagles:

So many things to clean up. Find a QB, change the offense, and build a better defense.

24. Dolphins:

They stunk this year, no doubt about it, but they ended it on a high note.

25. Jaguars:

Their QB needs to get better, but he’s already pretty good if he stops throwing interceptions. The defense really needs to be better, but they are promising better days with five games of good play.

26. Ravens:

They need Joe and Smith back and just I don’t know a better overall performance next season. I didn’t see what happened this year coming.

27. Chargers:

They must get better around Rivers. They need a running game, but the thing they need most is a DEFENSE.

28. Cowboys:

This is their ranking, final ranking for 2015, but not for the season ahead. They will obviously be better with Romo back and a high draft pick. Cough Derrick Henry, Cough.

29. Buccaneers:

They are young, so this season they get a pass. It didn’t end in a good way.

30. 49ers:

I love the idea of Chip Kelly for the 49ers just to see how he and Colin works out, but this is a bad team. That’s that.

31. Browns:

What an awful mess to end the season. The way they played, the defense, offense, and Johnny Football. One big mess.

32. Titans:

Gotta put the team with the number one overall pick here. A really bad season.
