It’s been a couple weeks since the last power ranking was put out, but there hasn’t been much change in that time, as we get closer to the end of the season and most teams are reminding us that they belong where they are. One exception is the Rams, who after two big shutouts – totaling a 2-game score of 76-0 – have moved up 8 spots. Unfortunately that means little to them, as they are still stuck at the bottom of the toughest division in the league.
The Lions are the next biggest movers, going up 4 after convincing wins at home against Chicago and Tampa Bay. They’ll look to continue their surge today against the Vikings in the 3rd of a 5-game stretch against NFC Central opponents.
Meanwhile, the Bengals are the biggest losers over the past two weeks. While they beat the Buccs, their offense still severely underperformed in that game, and it took an amazing performance by the defense to sustain a one point victory. The next week the Steelers rolled into town and demolished them pushing their rankings down even further.
