On Wednesdays on TDActu, it’s Power Ranking! 3, 2, 1, Go!
Before attacking the cleaver games, the regular season deserved an ultimate Power Ranking. The Colts (-7) and the Rams (-6) crack at the worst of times with two losses that make them tumble. For the 49ers (+5), Raiders (+4) and Steelers (+4) on the other hand, victory and qualifying for the postseason acts as a booster.
Finally, an exceptional event, despite the validation of their first choice of the 2022 draft, the Jaguars (+2) left the last place in this ranking. What had not happened since week 13. Cancers are now the Giants (-1), 32nd for the first time this season.
Time passes, it’s time to take stock. Here is our ranking. This hierarchy is not only based on the number of successes, but also on the form of the moment. If two teams are close and haven’t played each other recently, one wonders which one would win if the match was played today. Beating the strongest isn’t going to propel you to the top in a snap. Losing to one of the dunces won’t plunge you into the Abyss, either. You can win and tumble, tilt and climb.
It is the merciless law of Power Ranking …
1. Green Bay Packers (13-4)
With David Bakhtiari, Josh Myers and Billy Turner back, the Packers have no more fry on the line.

Tom Brady may have thrown a million passes in his life, but that pass was worth a million.
Tom Brady made sure to help Gronk get his $ 1 Million catch incentive 🤑

What could be better than the reigning champion by way of hazing.
Next week: trip to the Buccaneers.
14. Pittsburgh Steelers (9-7-1) +4

18. Indianapolis Colts (9-8) -7
The unthinkable happened in Jacksonville. Or how to spoil a season in one game.
19. Minnesota Vikings (8-9)
Zimmer played his last score with the Vikings. This season, he never managed to orchestrate his team into a contender and his defense was playing wrong.
20. Seattle Seahawks (7-10) +2
Are Pete Carroll and / or Russell Wilson going? In Seattle, expect an off-season stamped: “Duet and debates”.
21. Cleveland Browns (8-9)
If the Browns want to keep Baker Mayfield as their quarterback of the future, then he has to be supported. In the proper sense of the term.
22. Baltimore Ravens (8-9) -2
This season, John Harbaugh started 47 players. A record for the franchise.
23. Chicago Bears (6-11)
Spring cleaning in Chicago. The reasons for this choice were various, but we must now think about the next fall.

25. Denver Broncos (7-10)
They can change coaches as much as they want, without a quarterback the franchise will stay the same.
26. Atlanta Falcons (7-10) -2
It just goes to show that having a Pawn is not always a bad thing.
27. Houston Texans (4-13)
The Texans’ next challenge is to find a base for Deshaun Watson.
28. Detroit Lions (3-13-1) +1
Motor City has a manufacturer (Dan Campbell), quality spare parts (Amon-Ra St. Brown, TJ Hockenson…), it is now missing a driver (a quarterback).
29. New York Jets (4-13) -1
The Jets have only gained 53 yards in attack against the Bills.
30. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-14) +2
With a record of 3-14, it started badly, it ended in IP.
31. Carolina Panthers (5-12) -1
The Panthers are approaching the offseason with a lot of questions: for now, they have few points and a lot of questions.
32. New York Giants (4-13) -1
