2018 NFL Power Rankings: Week Fourteen

Our rankings are molded after Ric Flair's famous quote "to be the man, you gotta beat the man." The week's ranking are based solely on the week's results so if a lower ranked team defeats a higher ranked team, the two teams automatically swap rankings.

Last week had the Broncos and the Texans at 1 and 2 in our rankings. This week we have a new top two after the Indianapolis Colts ended Houston's 9 game win streak. The 49ers also upset the standings by defeating the Broncos to move to the number one spot. 

We have a new last placed team with the New York Jets defeating the Buffalo Bills, sending the Bills back to last place after five weeks. Elsewhere, Baker Mayfield led the Browns to another win which moves them closer to our prediction of eight wins made all the way back in March.

Next week offers another slate of games that are sure to shake up our rankings, until then here is our power ranking:
