NFL Power Rankings: Wild Card Edition

Wild on Sports
NFL Power Rankings: 
Wild Card Edition

What a wild finish to the NFL regular season we had over the weekend! Four teams had cracks at the AFC Wild Card, we had scenarios in the NFC that could have had a team like San Francisco as high as #2 or as low as #7 (out). After the dust settled we were down to our final twelve teams. No surprise, our top five this week features all four teams that will not be playing this weekend. 

Denver enters their bye at the top spot in both the AFC and in our Power Rankings. Last week they had the Raiders beat at half time which allowed Peyton to watch the second half from the sidelines. At #2 are the New England Patriots. The Pats handled division rival Buffalo last week and will have an extra week to rest his severely banged up squad. The fact that they finished the year 12-4 with a bye after all the injuries they have suffered is truly amazing. Representing the NFC at the top seed and #3 in our rankings this week are the Seattle Saehawks. The Seahawks rebounded from a tough divisional loss in week 16 against Arizona to beat fellow division foe St. Louis last week. They enter the bye as most people's favorite to make it to New York in February. Sticking in the NFC West at #4 we have the only team in our top five with a game this weekend: the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers enter the weekend on a six game winning streak. That streak will be put to the test this weekend against Aaron Rodgers and the rejuvenated Green Bay Packers. Rounding out the top five this week are the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers took care of business over the weekend to clinch the NFC South and a first round breather. Cam Newton's crew looks poised for a deep playoff run this season.

That'll do it for this week folks. Without further adieu, our Wild Card weekend NFL Power Rankings. Hope you see your team listed below!
