LISTEN TO 710 ESPN Seattle: Mariners vs. Marlins (live stream available only in Seattle-Tacoma area) »
Danny O'Neil's NFL Power Rankings | Week 17
Rank Team Comment
1 (1)Seattle SeahawksSeattle is still hoping its February menu will include a big apple.
2 (2)San Francisco 49ersFortunately for the 49ers, they were only half bad on Monday night against Atlanta.
3 (4)Denver BroncosTough to tell which is higher: Peyton Manning's record-setting touchdown total or his hairline.
4 (3)Carolina PanthersOne Panthers Star is literal: Rookie DT Star Lotulelei. The other is metaphorical: QB Cam Newton.
5 (6)New England PatriotsGo fourth and conquer: The Patriots have outscored opponents 160-86 in the fourth quarter.
6 (5)New Orleans SaintsNew _rleans is missing its O the past four weeks, failing to score more than 16 points in three of those games.
7 (7)Kansas City ChiefsWithout Justin Houston, the Chiefs have a problem. Fortunately for KC, the pass-rushing linebacker is expected back.
8 (13)Cincinnati BengalsConnect 40? Cincinnati has scored more than 40 points in three of its past five games.
9 (8)Philadelphia EaglesChip Kelly's success this season is more than a little Shady given that's the nickname for league-leading rusher LeSean McCoy.
10 (10)Arizona CardinalsNot sure about Arians' coaching supremacy? He's won 10 or more games with two different teams in the span of two years.
11 (11)Indianapolis ColtsLuck may not be enough in the playoffs. Not with the way these Colts are playing.
12 (9)Chicago BearsIf Jay Cutler played baseball, he would never be awarded a stolen base. It would always be ruled indifference.
13 (14)Green Bay PackersAaron Rodgers is finally back, which is good because it means Brett Favre will keep his pants on. And by pants, of course, we mean Wranglers.
14 (12)Baltimore RavensThe Ravens are actually playing better this December than they were last year en route to the Super Bowl.
15 (16)Dallas CowboysUnfortunately for Tony Romo, there is now surgical proof that he has a problem with his backbone.
16 (18)Miami DolphinsSacks and the city: The Ryan Tannehill Story. He has been sacked a league-high 58 times.
17 (17)San Diego ChargersThe Chargers' playoff possibilities are largely theoretical at this point.
18 (15)Detroit LionsJim Schwartz coughs up a lead so often he can sound like former U.S. General Norman Schwarzkopf.
19 (21)St. Louis RamsThe Rams are one win away from their first non-losing season since 2006, which gives you an idea of how little they've actually won.
20 (27)Tennessee TitansPoint of contention: The Titans are 5-0 when they allow fewer than 20 points, and 1-9 when the opponent scores 20 or more.
21 (20)Pittsburgh SteelersWinning may never get old, but the Steelers roster certainly has.
22 (24)Buffalo BillsBuffalo is just like every other NFL franchise. Only less relevant.
23 (23)New York GiantsSeems like everyone has been picking on Eli Manning this year given his league-leading 26 interceptions.
24 (22)New York JetsThe Jets have more wins than they did last year, but still the same number of questions at coach and quarterback.
25 (29)Atlanta FalconsWell, say this for Matty Ice: He's going to be chillin' during the playoffs.
26 (28)Jacksonville JaguarsGus Bradley's team has as many games without a legitimate starting quarterback as the Falcons have with Matt Ryan. Impressive.
27 (19)Tampa Bay BuccaneersLavontae David is an absolute Goliath of a linebacker.
28 (26)Minnesota VikingsTen L's and counting for the Vikings and coach L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-L-eslie Frazier.
29 (25)Cleveland BrownsWant to sound like a golfer? Just recite the Browns' rushing TD total this season: Four!
30 (30)Oakland RaidersSorry, Matt McGloin, but it appears the Raiders have a Pryor commitment. Terrelle Pryor.
31 (31)Washington RedskinsToo bad Daniel Snyder is going to fire Mike Shanahan. Those two deserve each other.
32 (32)Houston TexansThe Texans will be Schaubless next year, and the quarterback could very well find himself jobless.
