Arizona Cardinals Power Rankings – Week 17

6 of 6

Previous: 5th. Cincinnati Bengals. 6. team. 56. A tough loss for a team that badly needed the bye to get Andy Dalton back. There are still scenarios that give them that bye, but they have to hit everything just right, and they need help.. (11-4)

Pittsburgh Steelers. 5. team. 55. A very tough loss to a mediocre team won’t sit well for a while. Getting swept by that mediocre team, that is going to hurt. That mediocre team knocking you out of the playoffs, ouch.. (9-6). Previous: 4th

Kansas City Chiefs. 4. team. 124. In the playoff from starting 1-5 has to be an amazing feeling for this team, with a chance to win the division still in the cards, that has to be euphoric.. (10-5). Previous: 6th

Cam Newton will still probably win the MVP but there could be more conversation otherwise now that the team didn’t go perfect.. (14-1). Previous: 1st. Carolina Panthers. 2. team. 87

1. team. 32. Flying as under the radar as you can after destroying a perennial playoff team in Green Bay, winning nine in a row, setting franchise records every week, securing a division and a bye and can win the number 1 seed in the NFC next week with some help. Yeah, like that.. (13-2). Previous: 2nd. Arizona Cardinals
