Tampa Bay played well in Carolina, but as usual, it lost.

Miami has talent, but its been a miserable year for Adam Gase and Co.

24

Last rank: 25th

Conversely, John Fox does not.

23

Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals should take TNT to this roster and coaching staff come Sunday night.

22

Oakland Raiders

Firing Jack Del Rio is apparently on the table, and something that speaks to how awful this season has been.

Only one more game until Brett Hundley can be forced into retirement.

Buffalo is still alive, but it needs to beat Miami and get some help on Sunday.

Last rank: 20th

Arizona could be looking at some major changes this offseason.

17

Detroit Lions

8-7

Last rank: 13th

Losing to the Bengals is the most Lions thing I can imagine.

16

Dallas Cowboys

8-7

Last week: L, 21-12 vs. SEA

A lousy loss at home in Ezekiel Elliott’s return spells doom for Doomsday.

15

San Francisco 49ers

5-10

Last week: W, 44-33 vs. JAX
Last rank: 23rd

Has there ever been more hope surrounding a 5-10 team?

14

Washington Redskins

7-8

Last week: W, 27-11 vs. DEN
Last rank: 18th

The Redskins could finish 8-8, giving them three consecutive non-losing seasons for the first time in the Dan Snyder era.

13

Seattle Seahawks

9-6

Last week: W, 21-12 at DAL
Last rank: 16th

The Seahawks won, but Earl Thomas is campaigning for a deal with the Cowboys. What a clown show.

12

Los Angeles Chargers

8-7

Last week: W, 14-7 at NYJ
Last rank: 14th

If the Chargers beat the Raiders, they need a loss from the Titans and a win from Baltimore. Very possible.

11

Baltimore Ravens

9-6

Last week: W, 23-16 vs. IND
Last rank: 11th

The Ravens don’t look particularly threatening, but they are finding ways to get the job done.

10

Atlanta Falcons

9-6

Last week: L, 23-13 at NO
Last rank: 9th

Just when you think the Falcons have it figured out, they lay an egg in a huge spot.

9

Kansas City Chiefs

9-6

Last week: W, 29-13 vs. MIA
Last rank: 10th

With three straight wins, the Chiefs are in the playoffs and suddenly looking dangerous in the AFC.

8

Jacksonville Jaguars

10-5

Last week: L, 44-33 at SF
Last rank: 4th

Does Jacksonville lay down in Week 17, or does it try to knock the rival Titans out of the playoff picture?

7

Philadelphia Eagles

13-2

Last week: W, 13-10 vs. OAK
Last rank: 8th

The Eagles might be without Carson Wentz, but they will have the NFC playoffs run through Philadelphia.

6

Los Angeles Rams

11-4

Last week: W, 27-23 at TEN
Last rank: 7th

Los Angeles won its division for the first time in a decade. Congrats are deserved all around.

5

Carolina Panthers

11-4

Last week: W, 22-19 vs. TB
Last rank: 6th

Carolina is back in the playoffs and if Cam Newton plays well, it’s extremely viable.

4

New Orleans Saints

11-4

Last week: W, 23-13 vs. ATL
Last rank: 5th

New Orleans only needs to beat the lowly Buccaneers to win the NFC South.

3

Pittsburgh Steelers

12-3

Last week: W, 34-6 at HOU
Last rank: 3rd

The Steelers are a terrific team, but they are dealing with major injuries at the wrong time. Does that matter come January?

2

Minnesota Vikings

12-3

Last week: W, 16-0 at GB
Last rank: 2nd

Minnesota should be taken seriously by everyone, and yet somehow they continue to fly under the radar.

1

New England Patriots

12-3

Last week: W, 37-13 vs. BUF
Last rank: 1st

Are the Patriots vulnerable? Yes, but they remain the favorite to win it all.
