NFL Power Rankings - Week 16

The Raiders and Chiefs are currently swapping back and forth in positioning, but for majority the top 10 hasn't changed much. The top two are obvious and as of right now the best chance to be in the Superbowl. The 3 worst teams are still vying for the number 1 pick in the draft. The playoffs are still in play for a lot of the teams so this week is important week for the playoff race.

Power Rankings

  1. New England Patriots
  2. Dallas Cowboys
  3. Oakland Raiders
  4. Seattle Seahawks
  5. New York Giants
  6. Kansas City Chiefs
  7. Atlanta Falcons
  8. Pittsburgh Steelers
  9. Detroit Lions
  10. Green Bay Packers
  11. Tennesse Titans
  12. Miami Dolphins
  13. Denver Broncos
  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  15. Houston Texans
  16. Miami Dolphins
  17. Washington Redskins
  18. Indianapolis Colts
  19. Minnesota Vikings
  20. New Orleans Saints
  21. Buffalo Bills
  22. Carolina Panthers
  23. Arizona Cardinals
  24. Cincinnati Bengals
  25. San Diego Chargers
  26. Philadelphia Eagles
  27. New York Jets
  28. LA Rams
  29. Chicago Bears
  30. Jacksonville Jaguars
  31. San Francisco 49ers
  32. Cleveland Browns

MVP Race


  1. RB Ezekiel Elliott - Cowboys; 
  2. QB Derek Carr - Raiders; 
  3. QB Tom Brady - Patriots; 
  4. QB Matt Ryan - Falcons; 
  5. QB Dak Prescott - Cowboys; 

The MVP race is always full of quarterbacks, but running back Ezekiel Elliott is ahead of the pack right now. With two weeks left in the season, Elliott puts up over 100 yards both games and the Cowboys win it should be his. If he stumbles or they lose one of the games, Derek Carr is an easy choice to win it. Tom Brady has solid numbers but when games are missed it hurts the MVP case that can be made for him. The race is tight this year and it will come down to final two weeks.  Even some guys not in the top 5 could potentially sneak in for MVP or steal some votes away.
