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.

Other times, players come out of nowhere for breakout seasons, like CJ McCollum in 2016 and...
