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

Peyton Manning

20. St. Louis Rams (LW: 19)

It will be another losing season in St. Louis — now eight consecutive years — but 2014 appears to be nothing like the rest. After a dismal 1-4 start to the year, the Rams ran off a 5-3 string of games that featured wins against the Broncos and Seahawks. In every conceivable way, St. Louis looks to have turned a corner, only to finally run out of gas when it met the Cardinals and Giants in consecutive weeks. The Rams and head coach Jeff Fisher may be on the verge of building something special in St. Louis, provided the team finds a quarterback.
