NFL power rankings, Week 13: Jets rise, Ravens fall

In the Week 13 edition of our NFL power rankings, the New York Jets take flight while the Baltimore Ravens come crashing down.

32

Houston Texans 1-9-1

Last rank: 32nd

This has become an abject disgrace.

31

Denver Broncos 3-8

Last rank: 31st

If the Broncos were any bigger of a disaster, they’d be Gigli.

30

Chicago Bears 3-9

Last rank: 30th

Without Justin Fields, this is an unwatchable football team.

29

Los Angeles Rams 3-8

Last rank: 26th

The Rams should just rip out the December page of their calendar and call it a day.

28

Carolina Panthers 4-8

Last rank: 29th

Sam Darnold looked good? Not really, but he looked like Joe Montana compared to Russell Wilson.

27

Pittsburgh Steelers 4-7

Last rank: 27th

Kenny Pickett is flashing a bit, and right now, that’s all Pittsburgh cares about.

26

Las Vegas Raiders 4-7

Last rank: 28th

Two straight wins for the Silver and Black. Josh Jacobs is having an awesome season.

25

New Orleans Saints 4-8

Last rank: 23rd

The offense has completely derailed. Tough season in the Big Easy.

24

Arizona Cardinals 4-8

Last rank: 21st

Chernobyl has nothing on this meltdown.

23

Indianapolis Colts 4-7-1

Last rank: 22nd

The Colts are hideous and somehow hang around in every game. It’s confounding.

22

Green Bay Packers 4-8

Last rank: 20th

It’s time to start Jordan Love and see what you have in the kid.

21

Cleveland Browns 4-7

Last rank: 24th

Somehow, the Browns beat the Buccaneers. They should send Todd Bowles a gameball.

20

Detroit Lions 4-7

Last rank: 19th

Detroit is showing some real life, but the end of its Thanksgiving loss was insanity. Clock management 101 is needed.

19

Jacksonville Jaguars 4-7

Last rank: 25th

The Jaguars scored 18 points in the final six minutes to stun the Ravens. Huge win for Trevor Lawrence and that program.

18

Atlanta Falcons 5-7

Last rank: 18th

Has any team ever figured out more ridiculous ways to lose?

17

New England Patriots 6-5

Last rank: 16th

The season is on the line with Buffalo coming to town on Thursday night.

16

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-6

Last rank: 14th

Todd Bowles and Byron Leftwich are smart men, but they’ve done a poor job with the Buccaneers this season.

15

Los Angeles Chargers 6-5

Last rank: 15th

The Chargers aren’t moving up for that circus of a win over an awful Cardinals team.

14

Seattle Seahawks 6-5

Last rank: 12th

Seattle can’t start falling apart now. The Seahawks are in trouble, but can get right with the Rams and Panthers up next.

13

New York Jets 7-4

Last rank: 17th

Mike White is Joe Namath. Not really, but compared to Zach Wilson? Might as well be.

12

Washington Commanders 7-5

Last rank: 13th

Taylor Heinicke and the defense are elevating Washington to a playoff contender.

11

Tennessee Titans 7-4

Last rank: 11th

Tennessee is a good-but-limited team. The Titans need to find some big plays.

10

New York Giants 7-4

Last rank: 9th

New York is starting to show its lack of talent. Big week to get right, or there will be some panic for Big Blue.

9

Baltimore Ravens 7-4

Last rank: 5th

How many of these big fourth-quarter leads do the Ravens blow before we call them pretenders?

8

Cincinnati Bengals 7-4

Last rank: 10th

The Bengals are showing why they’re a championship contender. Good in all phases.

7

Minnesota Vikings 9-2

Last rank: 8th

Minnesota had to beat New England after getting pummeled by the Cowboys, and it did just that.

6

San Francisco 49ers 7-4

Last rank: 7th

San Francisco is getting healthier and starting to take off at the right time.

5

Dallas Cowboys 8-3

Last rank: 6th

Dallas has the roster to be a real problem come January. Also, the Cowboys are quietly hanging around in the NFC East.

4

Buffalo Bills 8-3

Last rank: 4th

The Bills are staggering a bit, but they remain every bit the contender they’ve been all along.

3

Miami Dolphins 8-3

Last rank: 3rd

Miami’s defense is about to be tested with a three-game road trip featuring the Niners, Chargers and Bills coming up.

2

Philadelphia Eagles 10-1

Last rank: 2nd

Philadelphia answered two uneven weeks with a 40-burger on the Packers. Tremendous team.

1

Kansas City Chiefs 9-2

Last rank: 1st

When the Chiefs are right, there’s nothing like them in the NFL.
