NFL Power Rankings Finale: Jets, Colts, Packers and Seahawks Surge into Playoffs

I'd like to start off by thanking the NFL for making Week 17 games divisional. If they hadn't, we wouldn't have been able to see the "NFC West's Lackluster Bowl" on Sunday Night Football. Just kidding—I really do believe that the change made the games more competitive. 

Even though the Texans, Redskins, Cowboys and Lions had nothing on the line, they still showed up and played until the end. I wonder if the threat of a lockout gave the players a little extra motivation.

Anyway, the playoff matchups are set. Let's take a look.
