The Reality Check Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

December 07, 2011 | Glenn Clark

16. Cincinnati Bengals (LW:  9)

I keep saying nice things about them. Don’t they know they’re supposed to be making me look smart?

15. Oakland Raiders (LW:  8)

It’s really though to win in the NFL when you travel across the country. I feel like I’ve said that a few times.

14. New York Giants (LW:  15)

Playing ANYONE is easier than playing the Saints and Packers.

13. Atlanta Falcons (LW:  12)

They’re not winning the Super Bowl. I’ve accepted it.

12. Detroit Lions (LW:  16)

I was asking the “does Jim Schwartz’s team play too edgy/undisciplined?” thing three weeks ago. I’m smarter than you.

11. Dallas Cowboys (LW:  7)

But that didn’t really happen, right?

10. Tennessee Titans (LW:  17)

The above is a team I think could be dangerous in the postseason.

9. New York Jets (LW:  14)

They’re doing it wrong.

8. Denver Broncos (LW:  13)

God is directly involved in this.

7. Houston Texans (LW:  10)

T.J. Yates >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Matt Leinart

6. San Francisco 49ers (LW:  5)

They’re really good, just not as good as the teams that have really good quarterbacks.

5. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW:  6)

It was easier to kill the St. Louis Cardinals.

4. Baltimore Ravens (LW:  4)

Ray Rice fantasy owners will be happy to know the Browns come to Charm City Championship weekend.

3. New England Patriots (LW:  3)

Why aren’t the other Gronkowskis as good?

2. New Orleans Saints (LW:  2)

In a word, efficient.

1. Green Bay Packers (LW:  1)

In a word, efficienterest.
