NFP power rankings

But new head coach Bruce Arians has something cooking in the desert. Since opening the season 1-2, Arizona has gone 6-2 over its last eight games with four consecutive wins. Granted, those victories have come against franchises with a combined 13-31 record, but you can only play those who are put in front of you. And over the last month, the Cardinals have dispatched every opponent who has stood before them.

Which makes the NFL’s decision to leave the Week 13 matchup between Arizona (7-4) and Philadelphia (6-5) at 1:00pm rather than flex it to Sunday night over the NFC East showdown between New York (4-7) and Washington (3-8) all the more curious.

The numbers in brackets indicate each team’s Power Ranking, which is based on a scale of 1-100. These numbers can be used as a baseline to determine the point spread between any two teams on the list. Keep in mind that these numbers do not account for home field advantage, situational analysis (extra rest, back-to-back road games, divisional rivalries, etc), injuries, weather or public perception. They are merely to be used as a baseline for your initial analysis.
