Week 12 holds some exciting match-ups for teams before they head intoThanksgiving. It is getting to be make or break teams for many of the teams hovering around or below .500. Here are the Power Rankings for the upcoming week 12 of the NFL season.
NFL Power Rankings #1. New Orleans Saints (10-0)
New Orleans crushed Tampa Bay and took care of business in week 11 and has caused this doubter to believe. New Orleans looks to get back several injured players this week as they play the Patriots. This Monday Night game will be a good one. Don’t be surprised if the Pats upend the Saints.
.NFL Power Rankings #2. Indianapolis Colts (10-0)
Indy took out a tough Baltimore but looked less than impressive in doing so. Indy heads to Houston to take on a stunned but dangerous Houston Texans. Look for Indy to take advantage of Houston’s short week and pull out another close win.
NFL Power Rankings #3. Minnesota Vikings (9-1)
Brett Favre continues to pursue the league MVP and is proving his worth week in and week out. The Vikings handled Seattle rather handily and welcome Chicago into a post Thanksgiving game that is a must win for the Bears.
NFL Power Rankings #4. New England Patriots (7-3)
New England pounded the Jets Jets Jets into submission in week 11 and now must take on the powerful New Orleans Saints. Upset alert, upset alert.
NFL Power Rankings #5. Cincinnati Bengals (7-3)
The Bengals stumbled horribly against the lowly Raiders and must begin to prove if they are for real. I doubt they will drop two in a row to the second worst team in the league. Look for Cinci to take care of Cleveland this week.
NFL Power Rankings #6. San Diego Chargers (7-3)
The Chargers embarrassed the Broncos in week 11 and should continue their second half surge this week as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs.
NFL Power Rankings #7. Dallas Cowboys (7-3)
The offense looked anemic but they still beat the Redskins. Dallas plays host to the Raiders on Turkey day. If the offense doesn’t get going we could be looking at an upset.
NFL Power Rankings #8. Arizona Cardinals (7-3)
Arizona beat St. Louis last week and play the surging Titans in week 12.
NFL Power Rankings #9. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4)
Pittsburgh stubbed their toe against the Chiefs and play a tough Baltimore team in week 12, this will be a great game.
NFL Power Rankings #10. New York Giants (6-4)
new York beat Atlanta in week 11 and play the struggling Bronco’s. This game will tell us a lot about these 2 teams and the winner could make the playoffs while the loser is going to have an uphill battle to get there.
NFL Power Rankings #11. Green Bay Packers (6-4)
Green Bay is coming up the rankings and beat San Fran in a tough match up. Green Bay plays the lowly Lions on Thanksgiving Day.
NFL Power Rankings #12. Denver Broncos (6-4)
Whats happened to Denver? The struggling Broncos are plummeting and play the Giants in week 12. Must win game for momentum for both teams.
That is our conclusion to the NFL Power Rankings for week 12. Is it Sunday yet?
