NFL power rankings, Week 15: Cowboys rise, Raiders fall

The NFL power rankings are crystallizing as we enter Week 15, with the Dallas Cowboys beginning to surge while the Las Vegas Raiders are finished.

32

Detroit Lions

1-11-1 LW: 32

The Lions won a game, that’s all that matters. Cruising to the No.  1 overall pick.

31

Jacksonville Jaguars

2-11 LW: 31

Urban Meyer might rather walk through an inferno than coach the Jags for another week.

30

Houston Texans

2-11 LW: 30

See above, but for David Culley.

29

New York Jets

3-10 LW: 29

The Jets aren’t able to score, but they make up for it by playing zero defense.

28

The Bears were entertaining on Sunday night, but ultimately, still the Bears.

27

New York Giants

4-9 LW: 27

New York is pitiful. The Giants can’t fire Joe Judge soon enough.

26

Carolina Panthers

5-8 LW: 25

One quarterback, two quarterbacks, no chance and no victory.

25

Seattle Seahawks

5-8 LW: 26

Somehow, the Seahawks are only a game out of a playoff spot in the NFC.

24

Atlanta Falcons

6-7 LW: 24

Atlanta is part of a five-way tie for the final NFC wild card spot. Just a wild year.

23

Las Vegas Raiders

6-7 LW: 16

Yeah, it’s over. Maybe don’t dance on the Chiefs’ logo and then get beat by 39 points.

22

New Orleans Saints

6-7 LW: 23

Taysom Hill looked good, Alvin Kamara had a big day, and the defense got to face the Jets.

21

Minnesota Vikings

6-7 LW: 22

A win that felt like a loss. The Vikings Way!

20

Cleveland Browns

7-6 LW: 21

How the hell do you almost blow that game to Tyler Huntley? Just a circus of a football team.

19

Miami Dolphins

6-7 LW: 20

Coming out of the bye and looking for a sixth straight win against the Jets. Miami on the move…

18

Pittsburgh Steelers

6-6-1 LW: 18

It’s time to win out or go home. First up, the Titans at Heinz Field.

17

Denver Broncos

7-6 LW: 19

Denver continues to stay alive, hanging in the race. Can they take down the Bengals at home?

16

Washington Football Team

6-7 LW: 15

Washington couldn’t overcome one of the worst halves of offensive football ever witnessed.

15

Philadelphia Eagles

6-7 LW: 17

Coming out of its bye, Philadelphia has to feel good about its chance. All NFC East games ahead.

14

Cincinnati Bengals

7-6 LW: 12

Brutal loss. The Bengals had a chance late to beat the Niners, but a dropped pick-six and an overtime possession ending a field goal spelled doom.

13

Indianapolis Colts

7-6 LW: 13

Huge, huge, huge game on Saturday against the Patriots. A must-win for the Colts.

12

San Francisco 49ers

7-6 LW: 14

San Francisco made it difficult but beat the Bengals. The Niners are in great shape for a playoff spot.

11

Josh Allen was unbelievable, but the Bills put themselves in too deep of an early hole.

10

Baltimore Ravens

8-5 LW: 6

If Lamar Jackson is hurt and compromised in any way, the Ravens could miss the playoffs.

9

Los Angeles Chargers

8-5 LW: 10

The Chargers handled the Giants, and now host the Chiefs in the biggest game of their season.

8

Dallas essentially won the NFC East by taking down Washington. Major victory.

7

Tennessee Titans

9-4 LW: 7

Beating the Jaguars isn’t a big deal, but getting a shutout with four interceptions is tremendous.

6

Los Angeles Rams

9-4 LW: 8

Huge victory for the Rams. It’s arguably the biggest of Matthew Stafford’s career.

5

New England Patriots

9-4 LW: 5

Out of the bye, games against the Colts and Bills. Two more big tests for New England.

4

Arizona Cardinals

10-3 LW: 1

Tough loss. With the Packers and Buccaneers having soft schedules, that could mean Arizona is playing on Wild Card Weekend.

3

Kansas City Chiefs

9-4 LW: 3

Kansas City looks all the way back, but must beat the Chargers or potentially be a wild card team.

2

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

10-3 LW: 4

What a bizarre game, but the Buccaneers found a way and are threatening for home field.

1

Green Bay Packers

10-3 LW: 2

Special teams, yikes. The offense? Sublime. Another win for the Packers.
