Welcome back to the MikesPickz NFL Power Rankings!
The Saints – Patriots game was exciting, but not in the way many people expected. Everyone expected a game to come down to the wire, but the Saints had other ideas. The Saints destroyed the Patriots on Monday Night and proved to their many doubters, that they are for real this season. The best part if you are a Saints fan -> they need to keep winning because the Vikings only have one loss and can possibly win out the season. The Saints want home-field badly because they are dominant in New Orleans (as the Patriots know).
The other undefeated team (Colts) are not so lucky. They already clinched the division and can clinch home field rather early this season (they have a 3 game lead on the closest competitor). The Colts are notorious for benching players when everything is locked up and it will be curious to see if they do the same with a new head coach and an undefeated season on the line.
There will not be any of my thoughts on each team this week, because well Finals are coming and I have been very busy of late (another reason the rankings are much later than usual). Next week’s rankings should be back to normal, though.
Now on to the rankings:
*Tiers are teams that are within 20 points of each other using my formula*
That will do it for the Week 13 rankings. I hope you come back next week!
