NFL Power Rankings, Week 16: Jets, Giants Both In Top 10

New, 1 comment

Turns out I was off by just a little bit in my predictions for how the SB Nation Week 16 NFL Power Rankings would turn out.

As I figured the Jets did move up and the Giants did move down. Both teams, however, still landed in the top 10 — and that is something I had not counted on.

The Jets (10-4) made a bold move up the charts from No. 11 a week ago all the way to No. 5 after going to Pittsburgh and coming away with a 22-17 victory.

The top four teams in the poll are New England, Atlanta, Philadelphia and Baltimore. Pittsburgh checks in at No. 6, one spot behind the Jets.

As for the Giants, they dropped from No. 8 to No. 10 after the Sunday Meltdown In the Meadowlands against the Eagles, in which they blew a 21-point lead in the final eight minutes. To be honest, I thought the Giants would tumble all the way out of the top 10.
