NFL Power Rankings: Week 13

Where do the battered Ravens stack up?

Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports

Nothing more fun than hashing out some power rankings. Who's the best? Who is the worst? Well from looking around I actually found my personal favorite list this week from reddit.com/r/nfl. The list seems to be most reasonable.

  1. Panthers
  2. Cardinals
  3. Bengals
  4. Broncos
  5. Patriots
  6. Seahawks
  7. Packers
  8. Steelers
  9. Vikings
  10. Chiefs
  11. Jets
  12. Bills
  13. Colts
  14. Texans
  15. Buccaneers
  16. Bears
  17. Giants
  18. Raiders
  19. Eagles
  20. Redskins
  21. Falcons
  22. Lions
  23. Dolphins
  24. Cowboys
  25. 49ers
  26. Saints
  27. Rams
  28. Jaguars
  29. RAVENS
  30. Titans
  31. Chargers
  32. Browns

First and foremost, wow. These Ravens are not doing well. I mean, we all knew that, but the Ravens are ranked the 4th worst team in the nation. How the mighty have fallen. Less than 4 years ago, the #25 49ers and the #29 Ravens were squaring off in a Super Bowl against one another. What injuries, coaching changes, and bad luck can give to you.

Still mind blowing to know the Panthers are undefeated. A comeback victory against the #26 Sants in most people's minds make others think they should drop, but two reasons for me argue the opposite.

One, the Panthers showed they find ways to win. Pure determination to not give in. The heart of a winner.

Two, the Saints still have Drew Brees, and he's a dominate quarterback. As a divisional rival they are a much closer challenge than some assume.

Really happy about the Cardinals being second. The powerhouse defense of the Rams destroyed the Ravens quarterback, and runningback. The Cardinals took it to them, scored points, and then abused the St. Louis offense.

The Patriots straight handed the game to the Eagles, and maybe the loss of key ingredients are finally stacking up to unmanagable. We as Ravens fans know exactly how that feels.

The reports of Seattle's demise have been greatly exaggerated, as they are now in the wildcard spot. The last thing teams are wanting is this pissed off defense finding some momentum into the 2015-16 playoffs. It also doesn't help that the Baltimore Ravens will be facing off against the Seahawks this weekend.

What do you folks think? Too high, too low, which teams?
