NFL Power Rankings Week 18


By Niko BanksPublished 3 months ago 3 min read

10. Rams 10-7

The Rams are a dangerous team this year. They are at the bottom of the totem poll in the playoffs, but they made the playoffs, and that is the most important thing. The Rams are one of four Power Teams with Super Bowl experience and one of the two teams that have actually won a Super Bowl. The Rams have already waded through adversity. They are 10-7, and nobody saw that coming. They discovered rockstars like Puca and Kyren along the way.

9. Dolphins 11-6

The Dolphins season has been up and down. They have been ranked as high as number one and as low as ten. They have struggled to beat good teams and even got swept by the Bills, costing them the division title at the end of the season. However, if the Dolphins' up-and-down season can show anything, it's that a big revenge tour is in their range of outcomes.

8. Chiefs 11-6

The Chiefs have not played as well as they have in other seasons. The Chiefs receivers have struggled, including Kelce. However, the Chief's defense has been strong, and the Chiefs have found ways to win. They have a championship pedigree and the most experience in the playoffs. Despite the way things have gone this year, nobody wants to be across from the Chiefs in the playoffs.

7. Bills 11-6

The Bills have been playing in the playoffs for weeks now. They have taken back the AFC East and muscled their way into the two-seed in the playoffs. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, and the Bills are definitely battle-ready for anything they will see in the playoffs.

6. Eagles 11-6

The Eagles are collapsing at the end of the season. It has gotten really ugly for them. However, when you look at the qualified 11-6 teams that could be ranked ahead of them, it turns out they beat everyone in one of them that they played. The Eagle's seasons have been ugly even when they win, but overall, the season looks good on paper. They made it to the playoffs and have the talent to win. They could string together a bunch of wins and get back to the Super Bowl.

5. Browns 11-6

The Browns have been one of the most dominant teams this year. They are 11-6 and could be 12-5 if they needed the last game. The Browns have a Super Bowl-winning QB in Joe Flacco at the helm, a coach of the year, and a hungry group. The Browns should be one of the two teams in the AFC deciding who will go to the Super Bowl.

4. Lions 12-5

The Lions started the season with a bang, and they have been just as great for most of the season. One of the top three teams in the NFL and one of the top 3 in the NFC. Despite the 12-5 record, the Lions are a little underrated. They are one of the most exciting and unpredictable teams in the playoffs.

3. Cowboys 12-5

The Cowboys are having the best season I can ever remember them having. Unlike previous years, they have beaten good teams and are playing well on both sides of the ball. Dak and the offense, in particular, have proven they can play under the big lights, making the Cowboys more dangerous than ever.

2. 49ers 12-5

The 49ers season ended in tragedy last year, with Brock Purdy getting hurt. However, this year, the 49ers are out in full force, and there aren't many teams in the NFC who have been able to stop the 49ers. The 49ers are the second most dominant. If the 49ers can stay healthy, they are the most likely team to make it to the Super Bowl.

1. Ravens 13-4

The Ravens have been everything you could want and more. Lamar has gotten back to his MVP level, and the defense is one of the traditionally great Ravens defenses. The Ravens have everything except the Lombardi Trophy.
