Dr. J's NFL Rankings for Week 14

Nine of the twelve playoff teams from last season, including both Super Bowl teams, have losing records! How things change so quickly...except in San Diego that is...

1) New England Patriots (10-2)
Last Week: 2nd, Defeated Indianapolis 38-34
Patriots eight game winning streak has included wins over Tennessee, Miami, Denver, Dallas, and Indianapolis.

2) Kansas City Chiefs (11-1)
Last Week: 1st, Defeated San Diego 28-24
Chiefs still have trouble closing teams out.

3) Philadelphia Eagles (9-3)
Last Week: 4th, Defeated Carolina 25-16
Eagles defense bends but doesn't break.

4) Tennessee Titans (9-3)
Last Week: 3rd, Lost to NY Jets 24-17
Titans can't do it on the ground against league's worst run defense.

5) St. Louis Rams (9-3)
Last Week: 7th, Defeated Minnesota 48-17
The Rams have the look of champions once again, at least on offense they do...

6) Indianapolis Colts (9-3)
Last Week: 5th, Lost to New England 38-34
The Comeback Colts come up just short.

7) Miami Dolphins (8-4)
Last Week: 11th, Defeated Dallas 40-21
Jay Fielder rightfully making Brian Griese a spectator.

8) Dallas Cowboys (8-4)
Last Week: 6th, Lost to Miami 40-21
Cowboys need to "cowboy up" for game in Philly.

9) Carolina Panthers (8-4)
Last Week: 8th, Lost to Philadelphia 25-16
Damn kickers!

10) Cincinnati Bengals (7-5)
Last Week: 10th, Defeated Pittsburgh 24-20
Bengals playing with great confidence, and well they should be.

11) Baltimore Ravens (7-5)
Last Week: 14th, Defeated San Francisco 44-6
Two games, 88 points. Why wasn't Anthony Wright in there earlier?

Seahawks rack up a season-high 463 yards of offense.

13) Minnesota Vikings (7-5)

Vikings get 25 1st downs and 465 yards of offense, yet only 17 points.

14) Green Bay Packers (6-6)
Last Week: 9th, Lost to Detroit 22-14
Brett Favre says not to blame his thumb, but that's got to be it, right?

15) Denver Broncos (7-5)

Clinton Portis' season-high 170 yards and two touchdowns keep Broncos alive in postseason race.

16) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-7)

Looks like it's a one and done title defense for the Bucs.

17) New Orleans Saints (6-6)

That's 9 straight 100-yd rushing games for Deuce McAllister.

18) New York Jets (5-7)

Herm Edwards tells his team that they will be 5-7 at end of night and there they are.

19) San Francisco 49ers (5-7)

Jeff Garcia may have played his last game for the 49ers.

Drew Bledsoe plays through a concussion and a hard hit to the head to throw his first 2 TD passes in 16 quarters.

21) Houston Texans (5-7)
Last Week: 20th, Defeated Atlanta 17-13
A game here and a game there could have put the Texans in the playoff hunt right now.

22) Chicago Bears (5-7)
Last Week: 26th, Defeated Arizona 28-3
Looks like Dick Jauron's not going to give up his job quite so easily.

23) Detroit Lions (4-8)
Last Week: 30th, Defeated Green Bay 22-14
Dre Bly makes his large (too large) contract pay off for the Lions.

24) Pittsburgh Steelers (4-8)

Steelers are 1-6 in games outside their division.

25) Washington Redskins (4-8)
Last Week: 19th, Lost to New Orleans 24-20
Redskins have lost seven of eight. Coaches blaming players, players blaming coaches, even though no one is saying anything.

26) New York Giants (4-8)
Last Week: 23rd, Lost to Buffalo 24-7
Say goodbye to good guy head coach Jim Fassel.

27) Cleveland Browns (4-8)
Last Week: 21st, Lost to Seattle 34-7
Biggest loss in Butch Davis' coaching career with Browns.

28) Jacksonville Jaguars (3-9)

Jags defense only giving up an average of 14 points in last 4 games.

29) Atlanta Falcons (2-10)
Last Week: 31st, Lost to Houston 17-13
At last some good news, Michael Vick behind center in Atlanta. Too bad it's way too late for the Falcons.

30) Arizona Cardinals (3-9)
Last Week: 27th, Lost to Chicago 28-3
Cards drop passes, interceptions, and missed blocks in most embarrassing loss of season.

31) San Diego Chargers (2-10)
Last Week: 32nd, Lost to Kansas City 28-24
Chargers are game against the team with best record in football.

32) Oakland Raiders (3-9)
Last Week: 28th, Lost to Denver 22-8
Bill Callahan calls his team, "the dumbest team in America." A league high 112 penalties seems to support his claim.
