NFL Week 14 Raging Power Rankings

I’ve divided the rankings in to 5 classes of teams. The “Elite” are the best of the best right now. The “Contenders” are easy to see going on a long playoff run. Those in the “Meh-zo-sphere” wouldn’t surprise me if they made or missed the playoffs. The “Pretenders” cling to wild dreams of making a run and making the playoffs somehow, and once mathematically eliminated are shooting for 8-8. The “Suh-didly-uckleheads” are already looking forward to ruining their draft position with a week 17 win over a playoff team resting all of their starters.
