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?
