Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

GLENDALE, ARIZONA - FEBRUARY 12: Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs looks to pass against the Philadelphia Eagles during the third quarter in Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium on February 12, 2023 in Glendale, Arizona.

IT’S A FINAL! Congrats to the Kansas City Chiefs for their Super Bowl win over the Philadelphia Eagles! It seems like yesterday that it was summer time and we were begging the NFL season to start.  Now it’s over and it’s time to rank all 32 teams one more time, once and for all, with our absolute final NFL power rankings.  But before we list our Final NFL Power Rankings lets take a quick look back at the season.

The Buffalo Bills started as the preseason favorite to win it all.  Before the season ended, Damar Hamlin’s grave health scare made us all Bills fans.  Speaking of injuries, Tua suffered multiple concussions and yet the Dolphins limped into the postseason after an 8-3 start.  Pittsburgh was dreadful but Mike Tomlin figured a way to avoid his first ever losing season.  The Titans slid off the map and the Jags turned out to be pretty decent.  And the Colts… well, I’m not sure what to say about them this season.

Speaking of disasters, the Raiders blew more three-score leads than I can remember.  KC is still good as long as Patrick Mahomes is there.  And let’s not forget about Joe Burrow and the Bengals and how they are poised to make another Super Bowl run.

In the NFC, the Cowboys tried to make a run at them but something isn’t quite right with that team.  Tom Brady’s career ends with a losing record. The Vikings love the nail-biters and the Lions were busy biting knee-caps.  The Rams repeat bid was a disaster and Mr. Irrelevant gave the 49ers some excitement.

It’s been a crazy, crazy season.  And we loved every minute of it.  So, one more time, here’s our Absolute Final NFL Power Rankings for the Shemon  and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida.  Enjoy and feel free to share.
