NFL Power Rankings Week 17: Packers and Saints top dogs

#1 Green Bay Packers (14-1)

The defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers were able to stay on track once again in Week 16 with a dominant win over the arch division rival Chicago Bears on Christmas Day. This win may have very well convinced head coach Mike McCarthy to rest his starters in the final week of the NFL regular season against another division rival in the Detroit Lions.

Regardless of what does happen this week against the Lions, the Packers will go into the playoffs as the team to beat and the clear favorites to win a second straight Super Bowl title. Continue Reading…

Drew Brees passes Dan Marino single-season passing record

The New Orleans Saints came into their Monday Night Football matchup with the division rival Atlanta Falcons looking to lock up the NFC South division title and improve their chances of a first-round bye in the playoffs. Even though the division title was supposed to be the only thing superstar quarterback Drew Brees was thinking about heading into Week 16, the media was hyping up the potential of a record-breaking performance by the one-time Super Bowl champion as he was just 305 passing yards away from breaking Dan Marino’s single-season passing record of 5,084 passing yards.

San Francisco 49ers release wide receiver Braylon Edwards

There is no doubt at this point in the NFL season that the San Francisco 49ers are the most improved team in the league. With the addition of head coach Jim Harbaugh to the sidelines, there has been no stopping the 49ers this season as they have transformed from a perennial bottom feeder in the NFC Conference to the winners of the NFC West division with an impressive 12-3 record.

As arguably the most sought after head coach in the NFL off-season, Jim Harbaugh had plenty of suitors throwing buckets of money in his direction, but the former coach of Stanford decided to stay near the Bay Area by going with San Francisco. This move one just one of two made by the 49ers that was supposed to help turnaround the team in the near future with the other move being the signing of free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards.

The NFC East division title may have very well come down to the final weeks of the NFL regular season once again as the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants are still in contention for the top spot in the division.
