Twelve teams remain after 17 weeks of action. The Patriots, Steelers, Bears, Falcons, Ravens, Colts, Jets, Chiefs, Packers, Saints, Seahawks and Eagles have all made it to the big dance, while 20 other teams sit back and watch while figuring out if they need a corner or a running back.
Five teams that made the playoffs last season are part of the group that sits at home (AZ, MINN, DAL, CIN, SD). How many teams that made the playoffs this year won't make it next year? Just wait, I'm gonna tell you.
NFC North: Green Bay Packers
NFC South: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles
NFC West: St. Louis Rams
WC(s): New York Giants, Chicago Bears
AFC North: Pittsburgh Steelers
AFC South: Tennessee Titans
AFC East: New England Patriots
AFC West: Oakland Raiders
WC(s): San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens
The playoffs are here,
Oh the playoffs are here,
Which happens to be,
My favorite time of year.
That may or may not be a poem. I don't know.
And now, what you've all been waiting for: the greatest Week 1 playoff power rankings in the history of the world. #YeahISaidIt
