Week #12 Power Rankings


After barely beating the Rams last week the 49ers destroyed the Bears on MNF that must have left former Bear Jim Harbaugh giddy all night.  The 49ers possess a great defense with a very good running attack that once they get a lead is hard to retake. After slipping in the rankings for a few weeks they return to the top spot after the other teams struggled with inferior opponnents.

1. SF 49ers (7-2-1) That is how you come up with a game plan with a backup QB!

2. Houston Texans (9-1) That is how you make a backup QB look all-pro, but they survived Hurricane Henne

3. Atlanta Falcons (9-1) That is how you survive your QB throwing 5 interceptions without a touchdown pass since the 50′s!

4. Green Bay Packers (7-3) That is how you make a comeback after one of the worst calls ever by winning five straight games.

5. Baltimore Ravens (8-2) That is the most inconstistent offense is the NFL picking up a win against their rival!

6. Denver Broncos (7-3) Super Bowl or Bust for the Manning Broncos.

7. New England Patriots (7-3) Talib will make or break their defense.  Losing Gronkowski while running the score up will not feel good for a while.

8. Chicago Bears (7-3) Same record as a year ago except the fact that Cutler isn’t out for the rest of the season.

9. Tampa Bay Bucs (6-4) Their offense keeps putting points up and they picked up a huge confidence win in OT this past weekend.

10. Seattle Seahawks (6-4) Nobody talks about them, but they have a good defense and Wilson does just enough to win.

11. New Orleans Saints (5-5) I told you weeks ago when they had it figured out that nobody will want to play them!

12. NY Giants (6-4) Huge home game against the Packers, which team will show up Sunday???

13. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4) The injury bug is killing them. Charlie Batch this week at quarterback so it must be throw back jersey week.

14. Indy Colts (6-4) Luck got a lesson from the master in New England this week.

15. Cincinnati Bengals (5-5) They have turned it around on both sides of the ball.

16. Minnesota Vikings (6-4) The next former Bears player turned head coach will get his crack at Lovie and the Bears this week.

17. Dallas Cowboys (5-5) They almost and should have lost to the Browns in Dallas! They stink.

18. NY Jets (4-6) TEBOW, TEBOW, TEBOW

19. Buffalo Bills (4-6) Thank you for at least scoring points each week to help my fantasy team.

20. Miami Dolphins (4-6) What happened to the Tannehill magic?

21. Detroit Lions (4-6) Another Thanksgiving day game and they are under .500! Where is Wayne Fontes??

22. San Diego Chargers (4-6) Where is the Norv Turner pink slip?

23. Tennesse Titans (4-6) Chris Johnson is going to make or break a ton of peoples fantasy playoff aspirations.  Which one shows up the next four weeks.

24. Washington Redskins (4-6) RG3 vs Dallas on Thanksgiving… Should be fun!

25. Philly Eagles (3-7) Which team won a game last? Phillies or Eagles… you know the answer!!

26. Arizona Cardinals (4-6) Defense good… offense not so terribly awful if was a BCS school.

27. St Louis Rams (3-6-1) Way to make the JETS look like a NFL team again.

28. Oakland Raiders (3-7) Do you think Carson Palmer regrets demanding a trade?

29. Cleveland Browns (2-8) They have lost 6 games by less than a touchdown and are the youngest team in the NFL.

30. Carolina Panthers (2-8) Ron Rivera to the chopping block please.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9) Henne for Mayor! Dump Gabbert!

32. KC Chiefs (1-9) Picked up a SI season preview in Dr office and Peter King had them winning the division! WHIFF!!

    So what happens to the Niners ranking after they lose to the Saints?

  • John Alport

    I’m a 49er’s fan, but how you rank them at #1 is beyond me. We all know about their strengths. But they have obvious weaknesses. Last night aside, they don’t have a known consistent quarterback like Brees or Rodgers. Also, they seem to break down every third or fourth week. But yes, like several other teams, if their weaknesses don’t kill them, they COULD……..GO…….ALL…..THE…….WAY.
