These have got to be the most pathetic power rankings I've ever seen. Dallas at number 4 ahead of the Colts? Jets at number 6 after back to back losses?
This is how the NFL's 32 teams stack up after 14 weeks.
* New York Giants
11-2 (Previous: 1) Maybe the Plaxico Burress distraction was larger than some of us thought it would be.
* Pittsburgh Steelers
10-3 (2)It's defensive history in the making, although it won't matter if they fail to take care of business in Baltimore.
* Tennessee Titans
12-1 (3)Division championship: check. Home-field advantage: check.
* Dallas Cowboys
8-5 (4)The road to the postseason only gets more treacherous.
* Indianapolis Colts
9-4 (7)They continue to take advantage of a soft schedule, but they still would be a very dangerous wild-card team.
* New York Jets
8-5 (6)A once-promising season is beginning to quickly fizzle.
* Carolina Panthers
10-3 (11)A dominant rushing attack, like the one they displayed on Monday Night Football, is the key to December success.
* Arizona Cardinals
8-5 (8)Congrats on winning one of the NFL's sorriest divisions. Now let's see what you can do in the postseason.
* Baltimore Ravens
9-4 (9)The Ravens' second-ranked defense gets to show off its muscles against the Steelers' top-ranked defense.
* Tampa Bay Buccaneers
9-4 (5)Since when does a Monte Kiffin defense forget how to tackle?
* Atlanta Falcons
8-5 (10)The Falcons couldn't have picked a worse time for their run defense to disappear. They'd better find it, and fast!
* New England Patriots
8-5 (12)That was a huge comeback win at Seattle, but how does this team overcome yet another lost player on defense?
