NFL Week 17 Power Rankings: The Seahawks Lost, So They’re In Last


NFL Power Rankings

Our Week 17 NFL Power Rankings are here.

The San Francisco 49ers needed some late-game heroics to edge the Atlanta Falcons last night. The Dallas Cowboys kept themselves alive… but lost Tony Romo. The New England Patriots set themselves up for a bye. But the Cincinnati Bengals kept pace. The Green Bay Packers are still in it. Oh, and the Seattle Seahawks lost, AT HOME, to the Arizona Cardinals.

So, they free-fell, right?

(No. That is how many Power Rankings work. That is not how these Power Rankings work.)

These rankings are based mainly on betting odds, approximating the power ratings made by oddsmakers. One game typically has a fairly small effect on the numbers, as numbers do not fall prey to recency bias. So, understand that these rankings are not my rankings, nor are they SportsGrid’s rankings. These rankings are very similar to the ones that make point spreads. As I will reiterate all year, I’m not an expert, because nobody is an expert.
