There are two weeks left in the regular season, and the best teams in the NFL are pretty much in evidence.
The Philadelphia Eagles, Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, and Buffalo Bills are at the top of the class in the entire league. Even when the Eagles lost Saturday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, the team managed a close game with Jalen Hurts on the bench with injury.
The Bengals took control of the AFC North with a win over the New England Patriots. The Bills had the division wrapped up just like the Chiefs. Still, all of those teams are fighting for a first-round bye.
This week, the Jacksonville Jaguars were ranked in the top 10 in power rankings. There is no better time than the present to do it. The team took first place in the AFC South and has a vital matchup against the Houston Texans to stay on top of the division. The Tennessee Titans, who are also 7-8 on the year, have a date Thursday night with the Dallas Cowboys.
