2018 NFL Power Rankings: Week Twelve

Our power rankings are simple, to be the man you gotta beat the man. It is based solely on the week's results. If you beat a higher ranked team, you swap positions regardless of records or other outcomes. 

Last week Denver jumped to number one and they remain there. The top 15 teams remain the same led by the Broncos and Texans at 1 and 2. Week 12 in the NFL was weird, Marcus Mariota almost threw a perfect game in a 17 point loss and Baker Mayfield might lead the Browns to the 8 win season we predicted months ago. 

Playoffs are right around the corner and the favorites are starting to take shape. The Texans are on an eight game winning streak but are yet to defeat any real contenders. The Chiefs still seem like the leaders of the AFC and in the NFC it'll come down to the Saints and the Rams. 

These next few weeks are going to be intense, toon in to see how things shake up.

This year's draft is shaping to be one for the ages. Not only does it include game-changing prospects, but the turnaround from the finals last week to the draft and then free agency next week is so condensed compared to years past. Look for GMs and Players to move with more urgency. Draft night is set to have Woj bombs...

USA Men's Basketball heads into these Olympic games with less certainty than they've had in years, which leads me to believe they'll fall short of a gold medal. The squad is too thin, there is no clear leader, and the roster feels more like a mix and matching of stars than an actual roster.
