Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Tom Brady

5. Denver Broncos (LW: 3)

Lose in New England? Forgivable. Lose in St. Louis? Unacceptable. The Rams’ shocking upset over the Broncos does little to damage their overall fantastic season, but Sunday’s visit to St. Louis was Denver’s best mathematical opportunity to tally another win in the foreseeable future. The next opponent with a losing record that Denver will face is the Oakland Raiders in Week 17. If the Broncos are as dangerous as everyone believes them to be, Week 11 should be nothing more than a blip on the radar, but their true nature will be revealed in the coming weeks.
