Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

2. New England Patriots (LW: 1)

In the battle of two giants, one was bound to fall. As dominant as New England has been since the beginning of October, the Patriots’ seven-game winning streak was snapped by the Packers in Lambeau Field. Much like the Patriots supplanted Denver atop the Power Rankings by beating the Broncos in Week 9, New England now suffers the same fate of losing its grasp on the top spot with a loss. With the aforementioned win against the Broncos under their belts, the Patriots still remain the top seed and best team in the AFC, and will cruise to a division title, if not a first-round bye.
