PFT’s Week 15 2022 NFL power rankings

Maria Taylor, Mike Florio, Tony Dungy, Jason Garrett and Steve Kornacki dive into Week 14, where AFC contenders impressed, the Eagles and 49ers posted dominant wins and more.

1. Eagles (12-1; last week No. 1): Good news, they clinched a playoff berth. Better news, they don’t care.

2. Bills (10-3; No. 3): TuAnon wants none of the Bills in Buffalo in December.

3. Cowboys (10-3; No. 2): They can spin it all they want; it was embarrassing to be taken to the limit by a one-win team.

4. Chiefs (10-3; No. 4): Why do I feel like everything else is details, and that this is the team that will be hoisting the Lombardi Trophy?

5. 49ers (9-4; No. 5): One too many injuries could keep this team from getting to where it wants to be.

6. Bengals (9-4; No. 7): First, Ohio. Next, the world.

7. Ravens (9-4; No. 9): Even with their top two quarterbacks injured, this team can win in December and January.

8. Vikings (10-3; No. 6): A blowout loss in the divisional round has never felt more certain.

9. Dolphins (8-5; No. 8): The season is at a crossroads, at a time when the road is taking them straight into Buffalo.

10. Patriots (7-6; No. 13): The stretch run may be more than this team can handle.

11. Seahawks (7-6; No. 10): It was fun while it lasted.

12. Commanders (7-5-1; No. 12): They’re built to make it to the playoffs, and to make some noise when they get there.

13. Giants (7-5-1; No. 11): It was fun while it lasted.

14. Chargers (7-6; No. 17): It can become fun, if it lasts.

15. Lions (6-7; No. 18): They’re still facing an uphill climb to get to the postseason, but they’re scaling the rock.

16. Titans (7-6; No. 14): It wasn’t much fun while it lasted.

17. Jets (7-6; No. 15): Even in defeat, Mike White earns more respect from teammates and opponents.

18. Buccaneers (6-7; No. 16): The flesh is willing, but the spirit is weak.

19. Panthers (5-8; No. 22): Steve Wilks is making it harder and harder for David Tepper to not hire him.

20. Jaguars (5-8; No. 25): The Week 18 visit from the Titans could be for the division title, somehow.

21. Browns (5-8; No. 19): The rest of the 2022 regular season is an extended 2023 preseason for Deshaun Watson.

22. Steelers (5-8; No. 20): I won’t give up on a Mike Tomlin team until there’s no path to the playoffs.

23. Falcons (5-8; No. 23): Falcons country, let’s Ridder.

24. Packers (5-8; No. 24): It could be Packers vs. Lions in Week 18 for a wild-card spot.

25. Rams (4-9; No. 29): Hollywood is the perfect place for a really great story that ultimately means nothing.

26. Raiders (5-8; No. 21): Will the Raiders keep Derek Carr? The next four games could answer that question.

27. Cardinals (4-9; No. 26): A horrible 2022 just became a potentially worse 2023.

28. Colts (4-8-1; No. 27): By playing Matt Ryan, they continue to gamble with $17 million.

29. Saints (4-9; No. 28): If they hadn’t choked last Monday night, they’d be in great shape right now.

30. Bears (3-10; No. 30): It’s spoiler season for the Bears.

31. Broncos (3-10; No. 31): When the Broncos slide down our chimney for a Christmas Day game, we’re all getting a lump of coal.

32. Texans (1-11-1; No. 32): When you have two quarterbacks, you have the first overall pick in the draft.
