December 11, 2013 | Glenn Clark

Ryan Chell’s Rankings…

32. Houston Texans (2-11; LW-32)

Fired Gary Kubiak to prevent them from rallying around the coach…

31. Minnesota Vikings (3-9-1; LW-31)

Had the Ravens in their grasp…then they remembered they were the Vikings.

30. Atlanta Falcons (3-10; LW-30)

What do they do in the draft? Jadeveon Clowney?

29. Washington Redskins (3-10; LW-26)

So…you send RGIII out to the sod in KC…now you care about his health in a dome?

28. Oakland Raiders (4-9; LW-25)

I have no analysis for this team.

27. Buffalo Bills (4-9; LW-27)

Too little too late for this first half team…

26. Cleveland Browns (4-9; LW-24)

Remember when they were in the thick of the AFC North race?

25. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-9; LW-29)

What do they do with Bobby Rainey?

24. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9; LW-28)

Tied for the longest winning streak in the AFC. Let that sink in.

23. New York Jets (6-7; LW-23)

How this team won six games is in the same conversation as to whether aliens exist…

22. St. Louis Rams (5-8; LW-22)

Rams fans should be patient…

21. Tennessee Titans (5-8; LW-19)

Is Mike Munchak on the hot seat?

20. Pittsburgh Steelers (5-8; LW-20)


19. New York Giants (5-8, LW-17)

How could their passing game be this bad?

18. San Diego Chargers (5-7; LW-21)

Guess what? They’re beating Denver on Thursday. Watch.

17. Green Bay Packers (6-6-1; LW-18)

I hate ties.

16. Chicago Bears (7-6; LW-17)

NBC loves QB controversies…

15. Dallas Cowboys (7-6; LW-13)

Wouldn’t be the Cowboys without staying JUST relevant enough for people to care…

14. Miami Dolphins (7-6; LW-15)

Ryan Tannehill having a very underrated season…

13. Detroit Lions (7-6; LW-11)

If the Bears or the Packers win this division, Jim Schwartz deserves to be fired.

12 Indianapolis Colts (8-5; LW-10)

Da’Rick Rogers stepped up big for Andrew Luck…

11. Baltimore Ravens (7-6; LW-14)

Getting Pitta back was huge…

10.Arizona Cardinals (8-5; LW-12)

I see this team barely missing the playoffs, which is a shame.

9.  Cincinnati Bengals (9-4); LW-10

It’s amazing the level of defense they’re playing with their injuries…

8. San Francisco 49ers (9-4; LW-7)

Always knew they were going to get Seattle back in their home court…

7. Philadelphia Eagles (8-5; LW-7)

And they’re playing defense too…

6. Kansas City Chiefs (10-3; LW-6)

Could be an early exit in the playoffs for this team…

5. New England Patriots (9-4, LW-5)

Vulnerable with no Gronkowski…

4. Carolina Panthers (9-4; LW-2)

It had to come to an end eventually…

3. New Orleans Saints (10-3; LW-3)

Carolina licking their chops to get them on the road next week…

2. Denver Broncos (11-2; LW-4)

Wes Welker will miss Thursday night’s game, but they should be okay…

1. Seattle Seahawks (11-2; LW-1)

Still atop the mountain…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
