Power rankings. You hate them. They’re so arbitrary and pointless, especially when they include all 32 NFL teams. All you want to know after a good week of NFL action is who the bestest team in the NFL right now, and which one is the absolute barrel-scraping worst. The one so terrible, it could be served on a Romano's Macaroni Grill menu. That’s why we have TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE NFL, where we go to great lengths to tell you who’s the top dog in football right now, this very minute. LET’S GO!
THE TOP: Green Bay Packers
I was in Milwaukee last week (LAND OF CHEESE), and I took the opportunity to ask many Packers fans I came across (shockingly not that fat!) whether or not they thought the team would try and go undefeated and if they wanted them to go for it. The answer was pretty much unanimous. Every Packers fan thought the team was gonna go for 16-0, and none of them had a problem with it.

Gronk walks off with what he thought was a record-breaking football. Photo by APThe game didn’t have the luster it usually has with Peyton Manning on the sidelines, but that doesn’t make the win any less meaningful. The Patriots improve to 9-3, keeping pace with the Steelers and the Texans in the battle for the #1 seed in the playoffs, and the Colts remain winless on the season...
Archie Manning figures Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck can co-exist in Indianapolis after all.
I had some fun last month when Adam Schefter mentioned “Peyton Manning” and “Redskins” in the same paragraph, leading to a Yahoo! video segment that suggested the Redskins might try to trade for Manning.
Seemed to me that people were saying Schefter had reported something he hadn’t.
But there was no parsing needed when NFL Network analyst Michael Lombardi was asked this...
Colts owner Jim Irsay has maintained all along that he hoped Peyton Manning would return to the field this season, but with his star QB still unable to practice, he's beginning to change his tune.
