After what happened in week 15 of the 2021 NFL Season, we have new NFL Power Rankings, now for week 16.
1. Green Bay Packers
Previous position: 2 (+1)
I’ll take a page from what I’ve done in previous weeks with the Cardinals: I’m not entirely convinced, but they have the best record in the league, so that’s enough.
2. Kansas City Chiefs
Previous position: 4 (+2)
That 3-4 start is a mere anecdote: Right now they have the best record in the AFC and the playoffs would go through Arrowhead. In short, things have not changed at the AFC.
3. New England Patriots
Previous position: 1 (-2)
The loss to the Colts serves as a reminder that this team is still in the process of rebuilding. Mind you, they are still a serious Super Bowl contender.
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Previous position: 3 (-1)
Last year, the road to the Super Bowl began with a loss to the Saints. If they are going to try to go back, this might be the right time.
5. Los Angeles Rams
Previous position: 6 (+1)
They are still not the machine they were supposed to be, however, they are in contention for their division and could aspire to a good spot in the postseason.
6. Indianapolis Colts
Previous position: 10 (+4)
Is it very unreasonable to think that they should be favorites for the game against the Cardinals? Because, at times, I think it should be that way.
7. Arizona Cardinals
Previous position: 5 (-2)
In the past two weeks, the Cardinals went from being the best team in the NFC to one with postseason aspirations. Their duel against Indianapolis will say a lot about them.
8. Dallas Cowboys
Previous position: 7 (-1)
Officially. we are concerned about the Dallas offense and the problems it will bring to a defense that is doing a great job.
Top teams in the NFL Power Rankings from 9th to 16th place:
9. San Francisco 49ers
Previous position: 12 (+3)
As incredible as it may sound, this team is not only in playoff position, they still have a slim chance of winning their division.
10. Tennessee Titans
Previous position: 8 (-2)
Remember when we assumed the Titans had won AFC South? Right now they have a game ahead of the Colts, with three left to play.
11. Baltimore Ravens
Previous position: 9 (-2)
Many things can be argued for and against John Harbaugh’s decisions, but the reality is that he has twice gone wrong with being so risky. And that is costing them the division.
12. Buffalo Bills
Previous position: 13 (+1)
The win over the Panthers was great for them because it gave them oxygen, but they could lose it quickly when they face the Patriots next week.
13. Los Angeles Chargers
Previous position: 11 (=)
His brand is a perfect example of what his season has been: some good games and some bad. The good guys are winning, albeit narrowly.
14. Cincinnati Bengals
Previous position: 14 (=)
What’s interesting about the Bengals right now is that they weren’t budgeted to be that good, so the future is even brighter.
15. Miami Dolphins
Previous position: 16 (+1)
Brian Flores is doing a great job on this six-win streak, and it looks like we need to get ready to see them fight for a postseason berth.
16. Minnesota Vikings
Previous position: 17 (+1)
Considering they make all of their games tight, it would make totally logical for their playoff move to be decided at the end of week 18.
Our NFL Power Rankings with teams 17-24:
17. Philadelphia Eagles
Previous position: 19 (+2)
The Eagles seem to have found their style of play with an attack based on the running offense. That might be enough to get them into the postseason, which would be a great achievement considering the expectations for the start of the year.
18. Cleveland Browns
Previous position: 15 (-3)
In theory they can make the playoffs, but between the injuries and COVID-19, things are looking very bad. It will be a very interesting three weeks for Kevin Stefanski and company.
19. Pittsburgh Steelers
Previous position: 21 (+2)
The further the regular season progresses, the heavier that draw becomes against the Lions, and it’s likely to end up being the thing that knocks them out of the postseason.
20. Denver Broncos
Previous position: 18 (-2)
The drama between Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock makes clear how important it is to find an efficient quarterback for the upcoming season.
21. Las Vegas Raiders
Previous position: 22 (+1)
Despite their complaints about the postponement of the game, they managed to get the victory, although it was much more suffered when considering the state of the rival.
22. New Orleans Saints
Previous position: 23 (+1)
As incredible as it may sound, the Saints’ 2021 NFL Season would be much more successful if they could face the Buccaneers more often.
23. Washington Football Team
Previous position: 20 (-3)
Between COVID-19 and injuries, this team’s momentum died, and it looks like it will be a tough season finale with no postseason.
24. Atlanta Falcons
Previous position: 25 (+1)
It’s honestly a bit unbelievable that the Falcons are 6-8 looking at how they play in some games. This equipment needs a considerable renovation.
The worst teams in our NFL Power Rankings:
25. Seattle Seahawks
Previous position: 24 (-1)
For the first time in the Carroll-Wilson era, he will record a losing season in Seattle. And for the first time in this era, it is valid to ask if a change is not needed in this franchise.
26. Carolina Panthers
Previous position: 26 (=)
Remember all the excitement that was in Carolina after the first season of Matt Rhule? It seems that it is over and now there is only the question of how much they can improve in the future.
27. Chicago Bears
Previous position: 27 (=)
They made the game difficult for the Vikings, but that’s not interesting because all teams do it. It is urgent that the season is over now.
28. New York Giants
Previous position: 28 (=)
At the moment the only real question in this team is how long will pass between the last game and the start of the clean-up that they are sorely missing.
29. Detroit Lions
Previous position: 30 (+1)
Dan Campbell said after the game that this group is very feisty, and he’s right. The Lions are perhaps the best of the worst teams in our NFL Power Rankings.
30. Houston Texans
Previous position: 31 (+1)
David Culley can, at the very least, boast that he beat a few Jaguars twice who made a much bigger investment in the head coaching department.
31. New York Jets
Previous position: 29 (-2)
This team fights and stays in the games, but they are missing that punch which Robert Saleh was supposed to instill in them. We will see if they can close in a better way.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars
Previous position: 32 (=)
OK, the Urban Meyer theme is long gone. Now it only remains to finish the 2021 NFL Season, which looks like something quite stormy at the moment.
These are our NFL Power Rankings for Week 16 of the 2021 NFL Season. What changes would you make? We await your comments under this article and on our social networks, in addition to seeing you this Wednesday at 6:00 pm to talk about this list in our twitch channel.
