Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

1. New England Patriots (LW: 1)

Another game, another win. After New England’s Monday Night Football loss in Kansas City in Week 4, the Patriots have set fire to the rest of the league via a six-game winning streak by an average margin of victory of approximately 19 points per game. The Patriots’ recent dominant run looks even more impressive when you consider their last two opponents — the 7-3 Denver Broncos and the 6-4 Indianapolis Colts. New England is set to face the two NFC North co-leaders in the Lions and Packers in the next two weeks, but there is no reason to believe the Patriots are slowing down. Including their two wins this season, the Patriots are 31-5 after Halloween since 2010.
