Week 17 NFL Power Rankings: The Broncos Are Starting To Slide

Peyton Manning

11. San Diego Chargers (LW: 14)

They aren’t as convincingly dominant as the former versions of themselves that started the year 5-1, but the San Diego Chargers have re-ascended back into the playoff picture with an unbelievable comeback in San Francisco on Saturday night. The Chargers have played some of the toughest teams down the stretch, and the fact that a Ravens loss now slides San Diego back into the sixth seed is a credit to San Diego’s survivalist nature in the second half of the season.
