What follows below is a ranking of all 32 NFL teams. To build this list, we consulted five objective measures of team strength: Pro Football Reference’s Simple Rating System, Football Outsiders’ Defense-adjusted Value Over Average ratings, ESPN’s Football Power Index, FiveThirtyEight’s Elo ratings and statistician Jeff Sagarin’s NFL ratings. We then used a composite of those measures as a guidepost.Previous rankings: Week 101. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (record: 7-2; composite ranking: 3.4)Last week: 41-16 win over BroncosWeek 10 ranking: 2Playoff odds: 98.4 percentHey, NFL. The Patriots don’t need help. On Sunday, the Broncos committed one special teams blunder after another: a muffed punt, a blocked punt and a kickoff return for a touchdown. New England takes the top spot this week because, unlike Pittsburgh, it doesn’t play down to its opponents.2. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (7-2; 1.8)Last week: 47-10 win over BillsWeek 10 ranking: 7Playoff odds: 95.6 percentSince Drew Brees signed in New Orleans in 2006, the Saints have scored 40 or more points 25 times. Sunday’s game was the first time they did so without a Brees touchdown pass.3. PITTSBURGH STEELERS (7-2; 5.2)Last week: 20-17 win over ColtsWeek 10 ranking: 1Playoff odds: 99.4 percentThe Steelers were wise to retire those bumblebee throwbacks. Not a good look. Also not a good look: Needing a last-second field goal to beat the Colts.4. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (6-3; 5.4)Last week: byeWeek 10 ranking: 3Playoff odds: 95.3 percentNo one’s catching the Chiefs. The AFC West is theirs. Their final seven opponents: Giants, Bills, Jets, Raiders, Chargers, Dolphins and Broncos.5. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (8-1; 3.2)Last week: byeWeek 10 ranking: 4Playoff odds: 98.5 percentThe Eagles kick off the toughest part of their schedule this Sunday night when they travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys. The last time Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott went head-to-head in a meaningful game four quarters weren’t enough. Dallas rallied from a 10-point deficit and won 29-23 in overtime. This could be the NFL’s next great rivalry.6. LOS ANGELES RAMS (7-2; 5.4)Last week: 33-7 win over TexansWeek 10 ranking: 5Playoff odds: 93.9 percentThe Rams’ wins haven’t been cheap. They’ve won four games by 26 or more points. No one else has more than two.7. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (7-2; 6.8)Last week: 38-30 win over WashingtonWeek 10 ranking: 9Playoff odds: 86.9 percentIt’s time to talk about how good Case Keenum has been. On Sunday, he passed for 300 yards and four touchdowns — against a team other than the Bucs. Yes, he threw two interceptions, but all that did was make the game slightly more interesting. He ranks second among all quarterbacks in Football Outsider’s DVOA metric and third in ESPN’s Total QBR.8. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (6-3; 8.8)Last week: 20-17 win over ChargersWeek 10 ranking: 8Playoff odds: 98.0 percentIs there anything this defense can’t do? Down 17-14, Blake Bortles tried as hard as he could Sunday to give the game away, throwing two interceptions in the final two minutes. Each time, the defense quickly got the ball back into the hands of the offense. Then the Chargers out-Bortlesed Bortles. A roughing the passer penalty put the Jaguars comfortably in range for a game-tying field goal.9. CAROLINA PANTHERS (7-3; 9.8)Last week: 45-21 win over DolphinsWeek 10 ranking: 11Playoff odds: 64.8 percentThe Panthers rushed for 294 yards against the Dolphins on Monday night. The team single-game record is 299 yards, which Carolina set against Tampa Bay in 2008, Jon Gruden’s final season as coach. Or was it?10. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (6-3; 8.8)Last week: 22-16 win over CardinalsWeek 10 ranking: 10Playoff odds: 53.4 percentThe Seahawks and Chargers each have played seven games decided by one score, most in the NFL. Seattle has won four of them.11. ATLANTA FALCONS (5-4; 10.6)Last week: 27-7 win over CowboysWeek 10 ranking: 12Playoff odds: 21.4 percentOn Sunday, defensive end Adrian Clayborn became the fourth player to record six sacks in a game. The others: Osi Umenyiora (2007), Derrick Thomas (1990 and 1998) and Fred Dean (1983).12. DALLAS COWBOYS (5-4; 11.2)Last week: 27-7 loss to FalconsWeek 10 ranking: 6Playoff odds: 20.4 percentNo team’s playoff hopes took a hit like the Dallas’. The easy thing to do is to blame the blowout loss to the Falcons on Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension, but Cowboys coaches are the culprits. Once a defensive lineman records three sacks, you’d figure a team would adjust. Instead, Dallas allowed Clayborn to look like Bruce Smith.13. DETROIT LIONS (5-4; 12.0)Last week: 38-24 win over BrownsWeek 10 ranking: 13Playoff odds: 37.9 percentAt this stage, it looks as if the final NFC playoff spot will come down to the Lions and Seahawks. Detroit hasn’t played in consecutive postseasons since 1994-1995.14. BALTIMORE RAVENS (4-5; 16.0)Last week: byeWeek 10 ranking: 14Playoff odds: 45.2 percentJoe Flacco, who has the highest cap hit ($24.6 million) of any quarterback this season, is averaging a league-low 5.3 yards per pass attempt.15. WASHINGTON (4-5; 15.8)Last week: 38-30 loss to VikingsWeek 10 ranking: 15Playoff odds: 9.0 percentWashington has given up 30 or more points in three of its past four games. Things won’t get easier this Sunday, as the team travels to New Orleans to play the Saints, who are averaging 30 points per game.16. TENNESSEE TITANS (6-3; 19.4)Last week: 24-20 win over BengalsWeek 10 ranking: 17Playoff odds: 67.7 percentWho are the real Titans? The team that soundly beat the Jaguars and Seahawks? Or the that team that barely escaped losses to the Browns and Bengals? Tennessee is the only division leader that has a negative point differential (-8).17. GREEN BAY PACKERS (5-4; 14.0)Last week: 23-16 win over BearsWeek 10 ranking: 18Playoff odds: 17.3 percentThe Packers have lost two straight home games. They haven’t lost three straight since 2006, Mike McCarthy’s first season as head coach.18. BUFFALO BILLS (5-4; 20.8)Last week: 47-10 loss to SaintsWeek 10 ranking: 16Playoff odds: 45.9 percentThe Bills 2017 season in three acts: I. They’re tanking. II. No, they’re not tanking. III. Okay, they’re tanking. How do you fix a run defense that allowed the Saints to rack up 298 rushing yards? You make a change at quarterback, of course. Bills gonna Bills.19. OAKLAND RAIDERS (4-5; 18.8)Last week: byeWeek 10 ranking: 20Playoff odds: 14.8 percentThe Raiders have lost four straight games to the Patriots, last beating them 15 years ago. Good news: Oakland had a bye last week, so it has had extra time to rest and prepare. Bad news: New England played Denver, and that was basically a bye.20. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (3-6; 17.6)Last week: 20-17 loss to JaguarsWeek 10 ranking: 19Playoff odds: 10.2 percentCopying last week’s comment here, with an update: The Chargers don’t do anything remarkably well, except lose close games. Since the start of the 2015 season, no team has played in more games decided by one score and no team has lost more of those games. They’ve lost 23, five more than the Ravens, who have lost the second most.21. DENVER BRONCOS (3-6; 23.2)Last week: 41-16 loss to PatriotsWeek 10 ranking: 21Playoff odds: 4.8 percentDefensive end Derek Wolfe after the Patriots embarrassed the Broncos on Sunday night: "It’s real sad. It’s sad we went from being a championship caliber team to a team that stinks. Nobody respects us."22. HOUSTON TEXANS (3-6; 20.4)Last week: 33-7 loss to RamsWeek 10 ranking: 22Playoff odds: 5.9 percentTom Savage has started in three games for the Texans, and in those games, he has been part of two touchdown drives.23. CINCINNATI BENGALS (3-6; 24.0)Last week: 24-20 loss to TitansWeek 10 ranking: 23Playoff odds: 4.8 percentDo you like punting? Watch a Bengals game. Cincinnati punts about every other drive.24. ARIZONA CARDINALS (4-5; 25.0)Last week: 22-16 loss to SeahawksWeek 10 ranking: 25Playoff odds: 0.5 percentCoach Bruce Arians on the possibility of Blaine Gabbert filling in for Drew Stanton (knee injury) on Sunday: "I’m extremely comfortable." Bear in mind that Arians also feels extremely comfortable doing things that would make the rest of us feel extremely uncomfortable. Things like stepping on hornets, running through fires and listening to the Spin Doctors.25. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (3-6; 21.8)Last week: 15-10 win over JetsWeek 10 ranking: 26Playoff odds: 0.3 percentFlorida’s NFL teams — the Bucs, Dolphins and Jaguars — have gone a combined 39 seasons without winning a playoff game.26. NEW YORK JETS (4-6; 26.2)Last week: 15-10 loss to BucsWeek 10 ranking: 24Playoff odds: 3.7 percentQuarterback Josh McCown, who played for the Bucs in 2014, has lost seven straight games in Tampa.27. CHICAGO BEARS (3-6; 24.6)Last week: byeWeek 10 ranking: 27Playoff odds: 0.1 percentThe Bears had an extra week to prepare for an Aaron Rodgers-less Packers team and still lost — at home. Fewest wins since the start of the 2015 season (coach John Fox’s first season): Bears (12), Chargers (12), 49ers (eight) and Browns (four).28. MIAMI DOLPHINS (4-5: 28.8)Last week: 45-21 loss to PanthersWeek 10 ranking: 29Playoff odds: 4.3 percentThe Dolphins are a mess offensively and defensively, and three straight prime time games have only magnified their issues. No one asked to see more of the Dolphins, but the NFL keeps giving them to us anyway. Kind of like how Hollywood gave us a "Daddy’s Home" sequel.29. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (3-7; 30.2)Last week: 20-17 loss to SteelersWeek 10 ranking: 30Playoff odds: 1.6 percentAdam Vinatieri is by far the most recognizable name on the Colts active roster. There’s Jacoby Brissett, Frank Gore, T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle, too, but you only know them because you play fantasy football and have been looking for some bye week fill-ins.30. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (1-9; 30.0)Last week: 31-21 win over GiantsWeek 10 ranking: 31Playoff odds: 0.0 percentRemember when 49ers-Giants was one of the NFL’s best rivalries? Joe Montana and Jerry Rice. Lawrence Taylor and the Big Blue Wrecking Crew. That was fun.31. NEW YORK GIANTS (1-8; 27.6)Last week: 31-21 loss to 49ersWeek 10 ranking: 28Playoff odds: 0.0 percentIt’s painful to watch Ben McAdoo wander the sidelines in New York. It’s like watching Bob Newby navigate the dark halls of Hawkins National Laboratory in "Stranger Things 2." You know how it’s going to end.32. CLEVELAND BROWNS (0-9; 31.4)Last week: byeWeek 10 ranking: 32Playoff odds: 0.0 percentThe Browns haven’t won on a Sunday in nearly two years. Their last win was a 24-10 win over the 49ers on Dec. 13, 2015.Playoff odds are from Football Outsiders. Contact Thomas Bassinger at [email protected] Follow @tometrics.
