Week 13 NFL Power Rankings: Bengals Roll, Broncos Drop Into Bottom 3

The Broncos fall into the bottom 3 of the NerdBall NFL Power Rankings. Here’s how the teams stack up heading into Week 13.

Welcome to the NerdBall NFL Power Rankings. We love data here, and produce many statistics to help you identify those edges needed to help you win your fantasy leagues and DFS bets. One of the key stats we bring to you are out team NEFF rating. This is a statistical analysis of team performance that allows us to rank the 32 NFL teams to show you who’s statistically good, and not so good.

In these weekly power rankings, I take each team’s NEFF rankings and add layer of my own tape review to give an alternative view of how the teams in the NFL should be ranked.

Three straight wins for the Bengals see them leapfrog their AFC North rival Ravens as the Broncos put up another offensive dud and have now dropped into the bottom three of the rankings.

Without further ado, let’s get into my NFL power rankings heading into Week 13.

RankTeamLast Week+/-NEFF RankONEFF RankDNEFF RankNotes
1Philadelphia Eagles
10324Turned on the offense to run for over 360 yards against the Packers and remain top of the power rankings
2Kansas City Chiefs
205115Easily disposed of the Rams and looking like the team to beat in the AFC
3Dallas Cowboys
41161Eased away from the Giants in the second half of their Thanksgiving game and have the Colts, Texans and Jaguars up next
4Buffalo Bills
3-1235Taken all the way by the Lions on Thanksgiving and not looking quite the force of earlier in the year
5San Francisco 49ers
50481Confidence will be high after shutting out the Saints last week but the Dolphins will pose a sterner test.
6Miami Dolphins
6012424Had the Texans beat before half time but now travel to face the fierce 49ers defense. Huge game in their season
7Cincinnati Bengals
927513Three straight wins and Chase set to return has the Bengals' arrow pointing up right now
8Minnesota Vikings
7-1241723Back on track after the Cowboys loss. Feels like they need to be an offense first team to be a force in the playoffs
9Baltimore Ravens
8-19118Horrible loss to the Jaguars but will hope to get right against the Broncos offense this week
10Tennessee Titans
100132612Played the Bengals close and still a top-10 team for me. The Eagles up next will be a test of that top tier run defense
11Los Angeles Chargers
143171225Scraped a victory to stay in the AFC playoff hunt but still an incomplete team due to injury
12New England Patriots
1318233The offense showed some life despite the loss ahead of the big TNF match up against the Bills
13Seattle Seahawks
11-2211929Back to back defeats and conceding 40 points at home is a worrying trend for the Seahawks and their playoff chances
14Tampa Bay Buccaneers
12-210167The offensive struggles continue for the Bucs who are stumbling towards the end of the regular season
15New York Jets
16111276The savior has arrived and Mike White is taking the Jets to the playoffs
16Washington Commanders
19361810They just keep winning and now have back to back games against the falling Giants. 9-5 anyone?
17New York Giants
15-2232221Injuries are de-railing their strong start and these consecutive games vs Washington will define their season
18Atlanta Falcons
17-1312030Still only a game back on the Bucs despite throwing away a victory against the Commanders
19Cleveland Browns
20115926Probably too little too late for the Browns but what can Deshaun Watson do after not playing for nearly two years?
20Arizona Cardinals
18-2221428Had the Chargers beaten and couldn't get a final stop. Sums up a poor season for the Cardinals
21Green Bay Packers
210191520Run over by the Eagles, but Jordan Love looked good in limited snaps…
22New Orleans Saints
220142117Far from out of a chance of the playoffs but need to get something going on offense.
23Detroit Lions
23018732Battled hard but that defense keeps letting the Lions down. Fun game vs the Jaguars this week.
24Jacksonville Jaguars
273161319The last-gasp win keeps the Jags' hopes alive but need to follow it up and beat the Lions this week
25Pittsburgh Steelers
283302522Squeezed past the Colts on MNF but eyes must already be on improvements for 2023
26Los Angeles Rams
24-2293018The injuries keep mounting on a team in freefall. I can't see them winning again this season
27Indianapolis Colts
25-2253111Jeff Saturday's lack of experience may have cost them the game against the Steelers but they remain a more competitive outfit under him
28Las Vegas Raiders
291201031The Josh Jacobs 5th year option revenge season has been the best thing about this Raiders team
29Carolina Panthers
312262814Somehow the Panthers are just a game back in the NFC South. How long will the Sam Darnold train stay on the rails?
30Denver Broncos
26-428299Into to the bottom five now for the Broncos after yet another offensive no-show
31Chicago Bears
30-1272427Its just no fun without Justin Fields, though the Jets enjoyed themselves in a one-sided rout
32Houston Texans
320323215Horrible showing against the Dolphins and the Texans are headed for that first overall oick in 2023
