Power Ranking – Final Regular Season

Ignore what you have seen the last 2 weeks out of the Jaguars. They finished the season in the top 5 in Point Differential (4th), Points Against (2nd), Points For (5th), and Margin of Victory (4th). They are first in rushing yards gained and ranked second Total Defense. I get it - we don't want to over commit to a team, especially one who has Blake Bortles as their quarterback, but top defenses and running games travel well. I still have them in the AFC Championship vs. the Patriots.

The NFC is a much tighter conference where 7 points, based on my algorithm, separates the Saints, Eagles, and Vikings. Nick Foles remains a concern. He has proven that he can play in this league - the challenge is going to be, can he and his WR's get enough reps to establish the timing and comfort required before their Divisional playoff.

I expect the Vikings to have to travel to Philadelphia for the NFC Conference championship.

Congratulations to the Bills and their fans. 17 years is long enough.

The Ravens and their fans will have a long off-season.
