Our Week 17 NFL Power Rankings are out and the Seattle Seahawks find themselves at the very top of the NFL mountain.
When you view all of the other Power Rankings out there you’ll find that the majority of them have two teams ranked one and two. The New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. Surprisingly, the Patriots are still ahead of the Seahawks on many of them.
The Patriots, led by Tom Brady, are the favorites to make it to the Super Bowl out of the AFC Conference. They however struggled with a New York Jets team that is in the bottom five in almost every Power Ranking.
Seattle on the other hand just destroyed the Arizona Cardinals, 35-6. That’s the same Cardinals team that had only lost three games the entire season (one of which was to the Seahawks) and still boasted one of the leagues best defenses. We knew that Ryan Lindley wasn’t going to put up points on the Seahawks. The game was still expected to be very close.
For Russell Wilson to have one of the best performances of his career against a defense many thought was just as strong as Seattle’s – that shows you what level the Seahawks are playing on right now. The Patriots can’t claim that after squeaking out a 17-16 win in New York.
