Arizona Cardinals Power Rankings Week 13

1 of 6

Where do the Arizona Cardinals fall in our in-house Power Rankings for Week 13?

After a crazy week of games, and what seems like officiating nightmares left and right, there were a few things that happened you need to be aware of. The New England Patriots lost a game, and at 10-1, the sky is falling in Boston. Not really, this is still a good team as long as Tom Brady is behind center, but the injuries are mounting.

Not just for the Pats either, maybe its just the power of hindsight, or the proximity to this season, but with so many high profile injuries over the course of 12 weeks, how would the league ever expect to go to 18 regular season games. There may not be enough players to last 16.

The Arizona Cardinals lost their top two running backs, Andre Ellington to turf toe and Chris Johnson, the league’s fourth leading rusher, to a broken tibia. Now it falls to David Johnson and his ball security issues to get the team running into the playoffs or risk becoming one dimensional and take away the long ball from Carson Palmer when defenses expect it.

Many divisions are just a matter of paperwork at this time, but the NFC East and AFC South are both making a play for going down into Week 17 and those important division games back-loaded into the schedule.

Not a lot of movement this week, and the top team may surprise you.

(2-9). Previous: 32nd. Cleveland Browns. 32. team. 53. For what was seen as a very “meh” game from the match-up standpoint, it turned out to be an interesting four quarters with a very Browns ending, losing when trying to kick a game winning field goal, then to lose their starting QB, put in Austin Davis, and let Johnny Football sit? And officiating questions. Ugh.

31. team. 35. Titans are on a downward spiral after the coaching changed gave them some hope, draft position is what you’re playing for now, oh, and pride.. (2-9). Previous: 31st. Tennesee Titans

Previous: 30th. Detroit Lions. 30. team. 50. Don’t look now, but here come the Lions! Everyone welcome back Calvin Johnson, where have you been for 13 weeks?. (4-7)

42. For all the officiating errors, there were still some calls that were legit, but they held in there with the highest scoring team in football and nearly beat them.. (3-8). Previous: 29th. San Francisco 49ers. 29. team

13. The won, there really isn’t much else to say, the Chargers have a lost season in the books, and can only hit .500. Rebuilding is in the cards.. (3-8). Previous: 28th. San Diego Chargers. 28. team
