We can see that the Carolina Panthers have relinquished their number one spot on the rankings after four weeks, and if they continue with the trend where the other five teams that started 6-0 or better this season have followed up their winning streak with two consecutive losses. We may see them end the season with 14-2 as they go up against the Buccaneers, but it doesn’t seem probable.

The Broncos and Jets seem to be moving up the rankings, as they have been down further after they got their losses. The opposite is also true, as the Packers and Steelers have had a up-and-down season, going on losing and winning streaks, and may end the season right on the line into getting into the playoffs. There are a few teams that could use this extra victory as they go into the Wild Card games, which include (as of Week 16):

New York Jets

Cincinnati Bengals

Kansas City Chiefs

Houston Texans

Seattle Seahawks

Green Bay Packers

Minnesota Vikings

Washington Redskins

So, choose carefully which football teams you think will make it passed the Wild card stage and into the Playoffs, as the power ranking prove that no team is safe.
