2018 NFL Power Rankings: Week Sixteen

12/27/2018

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, we mentioned the Browns moving closer to our preseason prediction of 8 wins. Well, the Browns won again and are one win closer to their first none losing season in 11 years. 

There's a new number 1 and its the Chicago Bears. According to our rules, if you defeat first place you move to first. The Bears defeated the 49ers and move into first. The rest of the top five remains the same as does the bottom five. The biggest mover of the week are the New England Patriots who are now in the 12th position heading into the final week of the season.
