CBS Sports released their Week 14 NFL Power Rankings and there was not much change at the top or bottom of the rankings. The top nine remained the same as last week, while the bottom four remain locked in as well. With the Packers looking at 16-0 and the Colts looking at 0-16, the dichotomy makes a certain amount of sense.
The San Francisco 49ers remain locked in at three following their victory over the St. Louis Rams. They remain behind Green Bay and Baltimore and even with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in two weeks, they could remain third heading into the playoffs given the Packers and Ravens remaining schedules.
The Oakland Raiders were blown out by Miami but only dropped a couple, which reflected a bit of a pattern this week. Many of the teams that lost did not lose a lot of ground in part because of how teams around them lost. For the Raiders, the big change saw the Broncos leapfrog ahead of them from No. 15 to No. 10. The Broncos are on a crazy roll having won five straight. The Raiders head to Green Bay this weekend, while the Broncos host a struggling Chicago, which means the Broncos could take sole possession of first by next week.
Here are the top ten according to CBS Sports Week 14 NFL Power Rankings:
1. Green Bay
3. San Francisco
6. New Orleans
7. New England
