2018 NFL Power Rankings: Week Twelve

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.

The Oklahoma City Thunder won the draft. This was the first year in my Thunder fandom where I was nervous about the draft. This was going to be the make-or-break it for the rebuild. For Thunder fans in the last ten years, the draft meant drafting raw athletic long-term projects with later picks. Players like Josh Huestis, Terrance Ferguson, and...

It's draft day! The time of year when we welcome the next wave of talent into our league. Outside of the top 3-5 players, this is the first time most fans hear the names of their next favorite player. Admittedly, I only started paying attention to college prospects during March Madness, and that's only through the view of the...

The Chicago Bulls surprised everyone last year by making the biggest splash in free agency, signing Demar Derozan, Alex Caruso, and Lonzo Ball to pair with Zach Lavine and Nikola Vucevic. Safe to say, the Bulls exceed expectations. Before the season, it was unclear how Lavine and Derozan would fit next to each other. They put those conversations to...
