Danny O'Neil's NFL power rankings
Team (last week) Comment
1. Denver (3) Mile High is a description of both this city and Peyton Manning's hairline.
2. San Francisco (4) Niners have yet to win more than two in a row this year, also have yet to lose two in a row.
3. New England (5) Patty cakes? Three of New England's last four wins have been by 28 points or more.
4. Atlanta (1) Falcons already in playoff form with last week's loss to Carolina.
5. Houston (2) Everything's bigger for Texans. Especially Monday night losses to New England.
6. Green Bay (7) Closing time: Packers have not allowed a fourth-quarter TD in six games.
7. Baltimore (6) Ravens have suffered back-to-back losses for the first time since October 2009.
8. Seattle (8) Golden Tate Warriors sounds like the perfect name for a WR's fan club.
9. Indianapolis (9) Six of Colts' nine victories have been by four points or fewer.
10. Washington (10) Washington's biggest concern about RGIII is now RG's knee.
11. N.Y. Giants (11) Prepare for the gauntlet: Giants play Falcons this week, Ravens next week.
12. Dallas (16) Cowboys season hanging by a finger; Dez Bryant's finger, to be more precise.
13. Cincinnati (12) Bengals have outscored opponents 106-35 in first quarter, biggest margin in the league.
14. Chicago (14) Bears averaged 29.5 points during 7-1 start, and 14.4 points during current 1-4 skid.
15. Pittsburgh (13) Steelers have lost three of four games for the first time since 2009.
16. Tampa Bay (15) Bucs have lost three consecutive games by a combined total of 11 points.
17. New Orleans (17) Saints have lost three consecutive games by a combined total of 43 points.
18. Cleveland (20) Browns aren't a model franchise, Cleveland just happy it's no longer a Modell franchise.
19. Miami (19) Dolphins have the distinction of being Miami's second-worst fish, behind the Marlins.
20. St. Louis (22) St. Louis Blues? Not this year. NHL is locked out and Rams are actually decent.
21. Minnesota (18) You can call it a comeback, but Adrian Peterson has been here all year.
22. Buffalo (21) Bills are undefeated in Canada this year, a perfect 0-0 heading into Sunday's game.
23. N.Y. Jets (25) Know what's funny? Listening to talk of Jets' playoff possibilities with a straight face.
24. San Diego (24) A Norv Turner-coached team ends up a disappointment? Shocking. Simply shocking.
25. Carolina (27) Newton described the laws of physics; Cam tends to defy them.
26. Detroit (23) This team is a lot like April — the Lions are going out like lambs.
27. Tennessee (26) Remember the Titans? Not during this forgettable season.
28. Philadelphia (29) For a bird that's supposed to soar, these Eagles are sure a bore.
29. Kansas City (31) Only an NFL season this putrid could make a city look forward to Royals baseball.
30. Jacksonville (30) You can count Maurice Jones-Drew's TD runs on one hand. Or one finger.
31. Oakland (32) Raiders have lost six in a row by a combined score of 215-109.
32. Arizona (28) The dead horse that is Arizona's 2012 season called to request the beatings stop.
