Here are our Week 15 NFL Power Rankings. With the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons losing we have a new 1-2 at the top so be sure to check out who it is.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars
That final interception was the type of thing you see when the team is sitting at 2-11 on the season.
31. Kansas City Chiefs
Jamaal Charles started the game with an 80 yard touchdown run. That was as good as it got for the hapless Chiefs.
30. Arizona Cardinals
How does an NFL team lose 58-0? How are they still able to come in better than 32 in the power rankings?
29. Oakland Raiders
It’s time to get Pryor some playing time in the final three games of the season. He can’t do any worse at the moment.
28. Tennessee Titans
That Locker pick six was just inexcusable. Rookie mistakes like that are why people consider him a bust already.
27. Detroit Lions
Calvin Johnson cannot be the only option on that offense. Joique Bell at least looked like a decent running back last night. Too bad Matthew Stafford doesn’t have much help on defense.
26. Philadelphia Eagles
Great comeback win against the Bucs. It looks like Nick Foles is going to be among the names mentioned in the historic 2012 draft class to have success.
25. Carolina Panthers
Cam Newton was among the leading rushers on Sunday. It’s incredible to think that a 72 yard touchdown by a quarterback is ho-hum these days.
24. New Orleans Saints
There will be no playoffs this year for the Saints. At least they will have a good draft pick to welcome to the team next season.
23. Buffalo Bills
That’s a crushing loss at home to the Rams. You know what would make it better? A new quarterback.
22. Miami Dolphins
They hung with one of the best teams in the league on the road. That is something to build on for next year.
21. St. Louis Rams
The Rams look like a tough team going into next season. Probably not going to make the playoffs this season.
20. San Diego Chargers
The Chargers showed why they were a playoff contender earlier in the season. Maybe Turner won’t be fired if they play well down the stretch?
19. Cleveland Browns
They have won three games in a row for the first time since ’09. Could they make it four in a row against the Redskins?
18. New York Jets
They look like a really bad team right now. Sadly, this really bad team could be in the playoffs.
17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
They are not a playoff team. It’s time to start thinking about the draft in Tampa yet again.
16. Minnesota Vikings
They won a huge game against the Bears. AP is showing why he is the MVP of the league right now even if Manning is going to win the trophy.
15. Washington Redskins
Kirk Cousins made it look easy. Seriously, when have rookie quarterbacks been this good this early?
14. Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys have some momentum going into the home stretch of the season. It should be fun for Dallas fans the next three weeks.
13. Pittsburgh Steelers
Wow, way to blow a chance to improve their playoff position. They are making it way too hard on themselves.
12. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals could have put themselves in a real good spot to make the playoffs.
11. Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks looked like the Oregon Ducks out there yesterday. Scoring 58 points is hard enough let alone winning by 58 points.
10. Chicago Bears
The Bears are looking like a team that has no identity. They don’t throw the ball or run the ball well right now. The defense can’t keep forcing stops forever.
9. Indianapolis Colts
At 9-4, they are going to be a playoff team. Let’s hope that they can win at least one game. However, they will have to beat a winning team.
8. New York Giants
Way to win a game when it counted the most. With all the other teams in the division winning games, it was a statement win on Sunday.
7. Baltimore Ravens
Cam Cameron is no longer offensive coordinator in an effort to keep Joe Flacco happy. Huh?
6. San Francisco 49ers
The Niners didn’t look good against the Dolphins. Should Kaepernick really be the starter down the stretch?
5. Atlanta Falcons
Wow. Way to once again play down to the competition. One and done looks likely this year.
4. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers can run. Too bad he picked a day where running 30 yards for a touchdown was only the third longest of the day.
3. Houston Texans
They still haven’t even won their division yet. A top seed is not guaranteed for them.
2. Denver Broncos
Manning is without a doubt the MVP of the league.
1. New England Patriots
Are they the team to beat yet again?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Jamaal Charles took the handoff on the first play of the game, skipped to his right and found a crease. He slipped through the hole, made a subtle cutback and then raced to the end zone.
On that 80-yard touchdown run against Cleveland, Charles looked as good as ever.
What he's gone through made it even more impressive.
This is a running back coming off...
Battling through a dismal season on and off the field, one of the Kansas City Chiefs' few positives has come in the form of inspirational performances from the player possibly affected the most by the recent tragic events.
Jamaal Charles likely hopes to get more opportunities to shine against the Oakland Raiders this time around.
Riding three consecutive 100-yard games, Charles...

The Chiefs would be in the 31st spot if I felt they would lose to the current #31 team, the Raiders, but I don’t. That would get them their 3rd win, before they most definitely lose out against Indianapolis and Denver.
RB Jamaal Charles: Rushed for 165 yards...
