It seems like yesterday that it was summer time and we were begging the NFL season to start. Now the regular season is over and it’s time to rank all 32 teams one more time, once and for all. 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 Eagles looked pretty solid from beginning to end. The Cowboys tried to make a run at them but something isn’t quite right with that team. Tom Brady is a year older but he’s in the playoffs…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 might lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl.
It’s been a crazy, crazy season. And we loved every minute of it. So, one more time, here’s our Final NFL Power Rankings for the Shemon and Sheppard Show on ESPN Southwest Florida. Enjoy and feel free to share.
