Night net null Which Night net teams are rising and falling before the final week of the 2017 regular season?Here’s how every team stacks up against each other for Week 17, from best to worst. Night net PLAYOFF PICTURE, WEEK 17:Current seeding | Clinching scenariosWeek 17 Night net Power Rankings1. New England Patriots 12-3 (last week: 1) The Patriots had another non-touchdown catch go their way against the Bills, but they made their own luck with their defense and running game picking up Tom Brady at the perfect time.This week: vs. Jets2. Pittsburgh Steelers 12-3 (last week: 3)The Steelers recovered nicely from that disappointing ending against the Patriots to keep rolling offensively without Antonio Brown in Houston.This week: vs. Browns3. Minnesota Vikings 12-3 (last week: 4)The Vikings’ offense has cooled off a little in the chill of winter, but as long they protect the ball and finish drives when needed, their defense will allow them to go deep into the playoffs.This week: vs. Bears4. Philadelphia Eagles 13-2 (last week: 3)The Eagles saw their defense struggle against the Giants. Then it was Nick Foles and the offense struggling against the Raiders. They’re still winning, but it’s suddenly getting too close for comfort.This week: vs. CowboysSTEELE: Eagles' QB problem is real5. Los Angeles Rams 11-4 (last week: 5)December was made for Todd Gurley putting the offense on his back and the defense starting to make more impact plays for Wade Phillips. Their strong special teams, however, took a big dent in losing Greg Zuerlein.This week: vs. 49ers6. New Orleans Saints 11-4 (last week: 7)The Saints haven’t deviated much from their formula — run the ball, control the clock and have the defense make one or two game-changing plays. They still need to avoid going on the road to start the playoffs, however.This week: at Buccaneers7. Carolina Panthers 11-4 (last week: 8)The Panthers didn’t get many st

yle points in needing every second to thwart the Bucs' upset bid. But with Cam Newton, few teams can make winning ugly look so good.This week: at Falcons8. Jacksonville Jaguars 10-5 (last week: 6)The Jaguars ran into the Jimmy G express in yet another failed West Coast trip, and with it, they saw streaky Blake Bortles go cold. They need to use the Tennessee trip to tighten some screws.This week: at Titans9. Baltimore Ravens 9-6 (last week: 10)The Ravens are becoming a more complete team. With their running game a little bottled up, Joe Flacco has found his groove while the defense keeps doing its thing.This week: vs. Bengals10. Kansas City Chiefs 9-6 (last week: 14)The Chiefs have kept it simple and thrown it back to what made them so successful offensively earlier in the season. Now their defense has finally risen to make big plays, too.This week: at BroncosMARVEZ: Chiefs "back on a roll"11. Atlanta Falcons 9-6 (last week:9)The Falcons’ season has been full of frustration, because as Dan Quinn and Marquand Manuel have had the defense rise up, Steve Sarkisian and Matt Ryan keep making the offense hit snags.This week: vs. Panthers12. Seattle Seahawks 9-6 (last week: 15)The Seahawks against the Cowboys looked more like the team we are used to seeing, as Russell Wilson was the closer instead of the carrier. They can be dangerous if they get back into the playoffs.This week: vs. Cardinals13. Los Angeles Chargers 8-7 (last week: 17)The Chargers’ 0-4 start still haunts them, but a few things could still break their way to get them into the playoffs and cause them to totally forget about it.This week: vs. Raiders14. Detroit Lions 8-7 (last week: 11)The Lions suffered some major feline failure against the Bengals to end their hopes for an elusive repeat playoff berth with coach Jim Caldwell.This week: vs. Packers15. Dallas Cowboys 8-7 (last week: 12)Ezekiel Elliott returned, but Dak Prescott and Dez Bryant made huge mistakes to cost the offense against Seattle. Jerry Jones is left wondering "what if" for so many reasons.This week: at EaglesIYER: How Cowboys failed in 201716. Buffalo Bills 8-7 (last week: 13)The Bills don’t control much anymore in their quest to end that now-18-year playoff drought. The Nathan Peterman decision may stand out as the worst way to not get there.This week: at Dolphins17. Tennessee Titans 8-7 (last week: 16)As poorly as the Titans have played offensively and defensively over the past several weeks, it just takes one win to reset everything for Mike Mularkey and Marcus Mariota.This week: vs. Jaguars18. Washington Redskins 7-8 (last week: 19)The Redskins are saving some face with Kirk Cousins, but Jay Gruden’s fate is still up in the air, as it may be tied with Cousins staying.This week: at Giants19. Green Bay Packers 7-8 (last week: 18)The Packers were shut out twice in Lambeau Field this season without Aaron Rodgers. That should make them rethink a lot of things offensively and defensively with Rodgers in 2018.This week: at Lions20. Arizona Cardinals 7-8 (last week: 21)The Cardinals are possibly working to send out Bruce Arians and Larry Fitzgerald on high notes. A home shutout is a good start; playing road spoiler to eliminate their NFC West rivals would be a fantastic finish.This week: at Seahawks21. San Francisco 49ers 5-10 (last week: 23)Clear eyes, full hearts, Jimmy Garoppolo, can't lose.This week: at Rams22. Oakland Raiders 6-9 (last week: 22)The Raiders keep losing all the gritty, close games they won last year.This week: at Chargers23. Miami Dolphins 6-9 (last week: 20)To think there was so much sudden hope after that Patriots upset ...This week: vs. Bills24. Chicago Bears 5-10 (last week: 28)If Mitchell Trubisky can do this with that, think about what he could do with something much better.This week: at Vikings25. Cincinnati Bengals 6-9 (last week: 25)This is the part where the Bengals finish OK enough to somehow keep Marvin Lewis around.This week: at Ravens26. New York Jets 5-10 (last week: 24)The Jets had been hanging in there for Todd Bowles with Josh McCown. Now they’ve become the bad team they were supposed to be all season.This week: at Patriots27. Denver Broncos 5-10 (last week: 26)Hey, at least C.J. Anderson looks like he might still be the answer at running back. The much harder part will be John Elway finding the right quarterback.This week: vs. ChiefsBENDER: Night net Draft QB match game28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-11 (last week: 27)Jameis Winston has locked into playing well again. Too bad his offensive line, running game and defense keep him just short of victories to show for it.This week: vs. Saints29. Houston Texans 4-11 (last week: 29)Bill O’Brien has been doing his best to work with an extremely short deck, but it was bound to fold badly. Just wait until he gets Deshaun Watson back.This week: at Colts30. Indianapolis Colts 3-12 (last week: 30)Chuck Pagano is getting his guys to show a lot of fight through the end, but it’s still not looking good enough to save him.This week: vs. Texans31. New York Giants 2-13 (last week: 31)When they’re not losing a frustrating, close game, they're getting blown out. That’s the gist of their miserable 2017 season.This week: vs. Redskins32. Cleveland Browns 0-15 (last week: 32)A winless season is about to be real, and it’s set up to be spectacularly disastrous for Hue Jackson.This week: at Steelers
