NFL Power Rankings: Week 12 - Top 10
Follow @walterfootball for updates.
  1. Carolina Panthers (10-0) - Previously: #2 - The Panthers just might be the best team in the league. Everyone keeps doubting them - even the sharps, who constantly pick the other team. Yet, all Carolina does is win, all while covering the spread for good measure.

    Having said that, Cam Newton should be ashamed of himself. Not because of the dancing - I don't really care about that - but I think it's horrible how he always gives footballs to kids in the stands. I think he and the Panthers are discriminating against the fat guy football memorabilia collector group that I fall under. Us fat guys who collect memorabilia want footballs as well, yet it's just the kids who get them. This is utter bulls***. What have kids ever accomplished? They suck. Us fat guys who collect memorabilia deserve our footballs, so I am outraged at Newton and the Panthers.

  2. New England Patriots (10-0) - Previously: #1 - I have to move the Patriots down. There are just way too many injuries. Dion Lewis and Julian Edelman were already gone, and now Danny Amendola and Aaron Dobson are hurt as well. Meanwhile, the offensive line is an abomination. I think what we saw Monday night is a sign of things to come against tougher opponents.

    Here's the Week 11 NFL Recap, including Patriots-Bills.

  3. Arizona Cardinals (8-2) - Previously: #3 - Facebook friend Nathan T. on my miserable picks:

    Dear god, man... Putting units on the Cards at -4 and they win by 3 due to a late flurry by Cincy. I wouldn't stand near you in a lightning storm.

    Arizona won by just three, but make no mistake about it - the Cardinals were up two touchdowns and probably would've won by that sort of margin if Patrick Peterson hadn't gotten hurt at the end. The Bengals began moving the ball again once Peterson was knocked out.

  4. Cincinnati Bengals (8-2) - Previously: #5 - The Bengals move up amid a loss because the Vikings fall further down these rankings amid their home blowout defeat to the Packers. Besides, the Texans beating the Jets makes me feel a bit better about that Monday night loss. It all eventually makes sense...

    By the way, major dap to my picks podcast co-host Matvei, who said that Dalton shouldn't be known as the Red Rifle or the Red Ryder B.B. Gun. In the wake of Dalton's whiny response to J.J. Watt, he should be known as the Red Tampon.

  5. Denver Broncos (8-2) - Previously: #8 - The Broncos looked pretty good with a quarterback who didn't need a walker in between plays. They won by just two, but it could've been more if it wasn't for a back-door touchdown. Oh, and Brock Osweiler tripping Ronnie Hillman as he was running in for a touchdown didn't help. At least I think it was Osweiler. It might have been Manning's walker, which was still on the field for some reason.

    Speaking of Manning, Mike Florio of the Internet Football Tabloid said that Manning will be playing elsewhere next year. My sources see it differently. Here's where Manning will be in 2016:

  6. Green Bay Packers (7-3) - Previously: #9 - I guess I began eulogizing the Packers too soon? Aaron Rodgers appeared to be playing with some sort of injury against the Lions, as he misfired on at least half-a-dozen throws, but he bounced back nicely, torching the Vikings in the process. It also helped that Eddie Lacy actually looked like he was in shape. I guess it took Lacy getting benched for him to realize that his diet of eating 12 Oreos right before bed wasn't paying off.

  7. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) - Previously: #6 - The Bengals losing Sunday night prompted Cris Collinsworth to say that the Steelers have a chance to perhaps steal the division with a late surge. How feasible is it? Let's take a look at the schedules:

    PIT: at Seahawks, Colts, at Bengals, Broncos, at Ravens, at Browns
    CIN: Rams, at Browns, Steelers, at 49ers, at Broncos, Ravens

    Ehh... sorry, Cris, I don't see it. Even if the Red Tampon is extra bloody, I don't think the Bengals will blow their divisional lead, given that they have an easier slate.

  8. Minnesota Vikings (7-3) - Previously: #4 - The Vikings have won me a ton of money this year - perhaps I'd be at -$6,000 instead of -$5,000 if it wasn't for them - but I think I got carried away with them a week ago. Putting them at No. 4 was way too premature. The offensive line is a major concern.

    Oh, and then there's this: It appears as though someone in the front office got a bit too drunk after the game and made a horrible trade. Check out this breaking news report from Rotoworld:

    It's official! Peterson has been traded to the Bears. I hope the Vikings at least got some good stuff in return like perhaps a lineman, Matt Forte, or some of Mike Ditka's DNA.

  9. Seattle Seahawks (5-5) - Previously: #7 - The Seahawks drop two spots following a 16-point victory. Makes sense to me! The primary reason is that the Broncos and Packers, who were behind Seattle last week, moved up. However, there's another reason, and it's that the Seattle defense allowed Blaine Gabbert to hang around. Gabbert drove down the field on the Seahawks in the 2-minute drill just prior to halftime and scored a touchdown. That was appalling. The Seahawks of old never would've allowed that.

    On the bright side, Thomas Rawls. He's awesome, and based on the latest news that Marshawn Lynch has a sports hernia, he appears to be an upgrade. Rawls allowed Russell Wilson to be sharp, so perhaps this is a great sign moving forward. Granted, the Seahawks beat up on a team that only employs players willing to tell Jed York how beautiful of a human being he is, but it was an impressive performance on Wilson's part nonetheless.

  10. New York Giants (5-5) - Previously: #10 - I actually almost slotted the Cowboys here, as they will be a legitimate threat down the stretch, thanks to...

    ...But I just couldn't stomach placing a 3-7 team in the top 10. I guarantee the Cowboys will be up here if they beat Carolina on Thanksgiving, however.

NFL Power Rankings: Week 12 - Bottom 10

32. Baltimore Ravens (3-7) - Previously: #26 - The Ravens are having the same sort of horrible luck I am with my picks, so I can sympathize. They're the no-brainer No. 32 team now, despite their victory, given that they lost both Joe Flacco and Justin Forsett.

At this point, if I'm Ozzie Newsome or John Harbaugh, I seriously consider benching the remainder of my quality players. Not only would it help draft positioning, but it would prevent further injuries. I mean, think about it: What if Marshal Yanda tears his Achilles? How about if C.J. Mosley also shreds his knee? What would happen if Eugene Monroe sustains a broken vag? Horrible karma is real - believe me, I know - and it has already begun leaking over into the 2016 season.

31. San Diego Chargers (2-8) - Previously: #24 - I have several thoughts on the Chargers after they ended up costing me $880:

1. You have no idea how utterly upset I am that I didn't get to place the Chargers at No. 32. I think Matt Schaub quarterbacking any team trumps that, however.

2. Metrics-wise, Melvin Gordon is the second-worst running back taken in the first round this decade. The only player he has been better than? Trent Richardson. Wow. The Chargers have needed to get Gordon off the field for weeks now, but the fact that Mike McCoy doesn't recognize that is one of many reasons he should be fired. Another reason? Since Week 6 of last year, San Diego is just 5-14 against the spread. How is that possible!?

3. Facebook friend Jay B. posted this picture, perhaps explaining my horrible bet on the Chargers:

I think you know what it's time for...

The Adventures of Derek Anderson's Magic Flask!

Derek Anderson: WTF why the hell am I sober for the second week in a row? Last week, Peyton Manning ate my magic flask in his chicken parm sandwich. This week, some fat a**hole who thinks he can pick football games took it. I know this because he bet on Blaine Gabbert!

*** After a flight to Philadelphia... ***

Derek Anderson: Yo, a**hole, why did you take my magic flask!?

Me: I dudnnnnoo I jusuusst loossstredd eieighth unnittss onnn theheh Chahrggersss hic!

Derek Anderson: Eight units on the Chargers? Holy s***, how much did you have to drink?

Me: I draanankkk llikeke hhahallff theh fllasssk hic!

Derek Anderson: Half the flask!? Good lord! You're only supposed to have a couple of sips to get you plastered!

Me: I hahavvee annn ididideaa onnn howoww tooomkaaakke mmyyyy moneneney bbaackckc.

Derek Anderson: How?

Me: Eiigighht mmooree unnittss onnn thrhhe Chhargggerss!

Derek Anderson: Uhh... what?

Me: Seerrssskly theheyey pllalay tehhe Jajagguurds thdisis weekek andndn theyy'lll coovvver fofor susurue thiiss timme hic!

Derek Anderson: That's it! I'm taking my magic flask away from you. You shouldn't drink one more drop of alcohol until you begin making reasonable betting decisions!

30. San Francisco 49ers (3-7) - Previously: #28 - It's time for the Colin Kaepernick Meme of the Week! Despite reports that Kaepernick underwent surgery to repair his broken vag, he was spotted warming up on the field prior to the Seattle game:

I don't know about you, but he looks the same to me - completely healthy! I'm surprised he didn't give it a go.

29. Cleveland Browns (2-8) - Previously: #32 - I'm kind of surprised that the Browns have declared Josh McCown to be their starting quarterback going forward. The NFL Network's Kurt Warner was even more shocked, as Josh McCown was atop his NFL quarterback rankings. No, seriously. This is an actual tweet from the NFL Network:

Looks like I wasn't the only one who drank half of Derek Anderson's magic flask.

28. Tennessee Titans (2-8) - Previously: #25 - To me, the bottom four teams are obvious. I could've put a number of teams here, but ultimately decided on the Titans. They have a positive spread record when Marcus Mariota is healthy, but losing at Jacksonville, albeit in crazy fashion, is bad enough to label any NFL squad as the fifth-worst team in the league. I don't care if there were fluky plays like a long punt return and a Supernaw fumble; you cannot, under any circumstances, both lose and cover to a team that has a pool in its stadium.

27. Detroit Lions (3-7) - Previously: #30 - I'm surprised that the Lions weren't flat following their victory at Green Bay. They somehow mustered enough energy to beat the Raiders, which was impressive. The team even hung a banner to commemorate the historic win...

...Yet, the Lions were still able to notch another win. Amazing.

26. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-6) - Previously: #31 - I was shocked this week when I got some hate mail from Jaguar fans. Yes, it's true! It's probably just the same Jaguar fan who somehow just acquired the Internet in his trailer-park home in Jacksonville, but it was surprising nonetheless.

This Jaguar fan bashed me for ranking his team 31st, citing all of the victories his team has accumulated recently. Hmm... let's see... the Jaguars beat the Bills despite E.J. Manuel gift-wrapping 14 points for them. They took down the Ravens, thanks to a call the NFL admitted was incorrect. They then beat the Titans, thanks to a punt return.

Great. I'll admit that the Jaguars have been better - Blake Bortles has taken the next step, thanks to some great coaching - but this team still sucks overall.

Oh, and I still expect hate mail from that one Jaguar fan despite this improved ranking. That is, of course, if Mary Louanne from the trailer next door doesn't steal his bandwidth so she can buy cigarettes online.

25. Houston Texans (5-5) - Previously: #29 - First of all, a great tweet I saw on Sunday (can't remember who wrote it): "Hopkins must be responsible for global warming because Revis Island is under water."

Second, this is an example of what's pissing me off about handicapping the NFL. I bet the Texans for four units against the Dolphins, thinking they were better than their record indicated, and they lost by like 40 points. Now, the Texans are beating teams better than the Dolphins. WTF!?!?! Seriously, this makes no damn sense. I'm about to lose it.

24. New Orleans Saints (4-6) - Previously: #23 - The Saints had off this week. They might play better in the final six games now that they don't have a professional wrestler coaching their defense. They might even catch the Falcons for second place in the division.

Speaking of Atlanta, here were some memorable tweets from Jim Irsay during the Colts-Falcons game:

23. Miami Dolphins (4-6) - Previously: #22 - I'm very disappointed in PC Coach. Forget not going for it on fourth down late in the game. That's irrelevant. PC Head Coach managed to beat Chip Kelly, who's known for being racist against all minorities. He checked Kelly's privilege, but for some reason didn't do so to the Cowboys, who employ DE Woman Beater. Do the PC Bros not care about domestic violence? PC Bros are clearly anti-racism, but they haven't shown any sympathy toward women. I think that's absolutely horrible.

    @jckevo As an Eagles fan, I think the Eagles should ranked #33, behind the Edmonton Eskimos.

    Stop making excuses, Walt. The Bengals were up by a touchdown at halftime and lost several players in the secondary during the game. Injuries went both ways, and you picked the wrong side. Cincinnati is now 8-1-1 ATS in 2015, but you feel the need to stick with your idiotic "...beginning of the end for the Bengals" overreaction from last week.

    I am not defending Gordon, but how many RBs have been taken in the first round this decade?  Not many.  Not as damning an insult as you think it is.

    So the bucs are ranked behind the Cowboys even though the bucs have a better record, beat the Cowboys recently, and have won two in a row (blowout win sunday as well)...makes complete sense..

    @Will (bucs) The Bucs barely beat the cowboys without Tony Romo. This isn't ranking of teams records, it is ranking of which is the better team in the given moment and I think most would say Tony Romo makes the Cowboys better than the Bucs

    So you don't think Tony Romo is an upgrade over Matt Cassel at all? Interesting

    "I think what we saw Monday night is a sign of things to come against tougher opponents. "

    You mean the Pats and the league's best scoring defense shutting down opposing offenses and winning low scoring games?

    L.A. is full of fake people who don't care about anything except stupid celebrities and crappy movies. 

    We also like food, finding alternate routes, and windy days. I took my wife and kid on a hike today in Culver City. Took us 10 minutes from our front door to get to where we could see the entire city and it was beautiful. LA is the guy you think doesn't like you in high school and ends up being the best man at your wedding. It's a beautiful city full of real people.

    Gotta hand it to you, Walt.  Per usual, you don't really say anything of substance relating to football.  But damnnn, you brought jokes this time!

    Well done.

    Seahawks at 7 after only beating loser teams and the fact that they should be 3-6 right now (Lions game)? Either you live in Washington, hopped on their bandwagon and really don't want to jump off, or you really are an idiot.

    Born and raised in Dallas so naturally I liked to see the Cowboys at #12, but I think people are now expecting Dallas to be a powerhouse with Romo back. Mathematically, they're not out of it especially with our top 5 quarterback under center. My guess is they finish up 7-9 or 8-8 if things really come together, but people are expecting this team to win out and take a wild card spot with Romo back. I'd love to see it happen, but my expectations are at bay at least until I see how they play this week. There is a lot of extra @#$@ going on with Hardy being a cancer and Dez not looking 100% healthy to name a few, so while Tony Romo will help dramatically, I don't know if he can cure it all.

    @Ryan W

    You're dead on, I don't see this dysfunctional team winning out just because Romo is back - when did he ever win out with that many games to play anyway? This team is probably picking in the top 10-15 come May of '16.

    "Only the Browns could injure a quarterback to allow Ben Roethlisberger enter the game" - a lot of anonymous posters on this site say you're not funny but that was hilarious. The Browns injure Landry Jones to face Roethlisberger who acted like Cleveland kidnapped his children. Awesome.

    As a 49ers fan I understand the fact that we suck and deserve to be 28th. But deear god did you just quote Tim Kawakami, Walt?Dude is like TMZ for the Bay area. Most of what he says is laughable and shouldn't be believed. The fact you just quoted him blows my mind.

    While a large part of the league is in the same 5-4 - 4-5 average, gross, boring range, I don't think it's that fair to say that the league is as bad as you make it out to be. I think that CAR, NE, AZ, and even CIN are as good as any team in recent years. If anyone outside of them (we'll see if GB fixes their mess) wins then I'll be disappointed unless someone significantly improves, but I think this is just a transitional period especially with the Quarterback play of the league being all over the place. CAR's team reminds me of a little like Seattle's, back when they were dominant and ran the ball behind an O-Line rather than disregard their identity and throw the ball to a 6'7 @#$@..

    People think the hit on Bridgewater was dirty? Are we talking about the same one? Where Joyner is trying to adjust mid-air to avoid a sliding Bridgewater? Or was it a different hit?&nbspSorry it happened to your babies in Minnesota, Walter.

    @Nick Do you mean he adjusted in mid-air to make sure he could drive his elbow into his head?  I've watched that play enough to know that Joyner had plenty of time to not launch himself into Teddy.  If Joyner was trying to just tackle Teddy, he would have flown right over him instead.  Sounds like sour grapes from bad fan base.

    Walter, I know there are a lot of bad teams in the NFL this year, but sooner or later you're going to have to drop San Diego into the bottom ten.  Maybe, for example, if they were to lose to another 2-6 team (at home) and fall to 2-7.

    Falcons out of the top 10 is @#$@ing crazy. They have had stupid fumble luck. Their offense is top 5, their defense is #11 and almost statistically identical to the Panthers.

    Meanwhile the Panthers haven't won but one game by more than a TD. Every game they've scraped by. 

    Not sure what narrative you're trying to follow, but i will lol so hard if you pick against the Falcons next week because you cannot into fumble luck. The Falcons have quietly dominated theit opponents everywhere except the scoreboard. Something is going to give.

    @Anon the Falcons have also done that while playing against one of the easiest schedules in the NFL. Losing to the Bucs=pretender. Can't wait to see them play a competent team and get blown the @#$@ out

    @Smarter Anon 

    Falcons outgained the Bucs 500 to 300. They had two redzone fumbles off snaps/handoffs. The odds are in their favor to recover those types of fumbles (55% per FootballOutsiders). They didn't punt the ball once. 

    It was another flukey game, like the Titans game that had a questionable TD called back and equally bad fumble luck. 

    Are they an 'elite' team? No. But definitely playoff contenders and worthy of the top 12 at least. This is a knee jerk reaction over a fluke game.

    Sup walt you faglord. 

    Over the past 4 weeks they're -8 in turnover margin. They have recovered exactly 0/7 of their fumbles during that span. 5 of them were unforced. There's only a 5% chance that they lose all of those fumbles.

    They're moving the ball at will, they have just had bad luck. With just mediocre fumble luck, they're probably still undefeated. 

    The public, you included, are going to fade the Falcons hard over fumble luck. It should be interesting.

    @smarterest anon 

    Umm maybe you should reconsider your argument that the Falcons are good because of their -8 turnover margin. Good teams don't have -8 turnover margins. And the pubic is pounding the Falcons again this week so not sure what you're getting at.

    Btw would it kill you to register? Don't be scared to do so.

    I have to disagree with you here a little.  I agree the Falcons have played @#$@ty last four games but they are relatively healthy and have tons of talent (you could make argument that Jones and Freeman are the best WR/RB in the league).

    As you stated their ridiculous turnover margin has been absolutely killing them...but i have a hard time believing they will be fumbling the ball every other play the rest of the year.

    If the Falcons dont cover vs SF this week (-4) against a dude named Blaine, ill be absolutely shocked.
