BALTIMORE STANDING TOGETHER: WJZ, The Baltimore Sun & the University of Baltimore will hold town hall meetings to talk about the issues our city is facing. City leaders will share their plans & answer your questions. Be Heard Baltimore. CLICK HERE to contact us with your questions.

Here are the world’s foremost authority on power rankings. You can disagree if you like, but you will soon realize we are right.



1. FALCONS – looking like a team that is ready to win now … and in the playoffs.

2. GIANTS – could be the most complete team in the league right now.

3. TEXANS – the best team in the AFC by a decent margin. Ready for stretch run.

4. 49ERS – for two straight weeks they demonstrated NFC West supremacy.

5. BEARS – Jay Cutler isn’t helping them score. But their defense is. And they win.

6. PACKERS – they are on a run and looking more like the 15-1 team from last year.

7. PATRIOTS – apparently the New England Patriots offense is still better than the old.

8. RAVENS – let’s see what team comes out of the bye. Time for Flacco to carry them.

9. STEELERS – may be starting to make their run & the defense is returning to form.

10. BRONCOS – Peyton’s revenge for the SB loss was enough to give them first place.

11. VIKINGS – for some reason that loss on Thursday night at home was predictable.

12. SEAHAWKS – thought they would steal another one on the east coast. Was not so.

13. DOLPHINS – we all slept on Joe Philbin and Ryan Tannehill. We are now awake.

14. COLTS – they are only two games out of first in the AFC South. Think about that.

15. CARDINALS – their run at the top of the NFC West is probably over for good.

16. LIONS – the worst part for them is that there are 3 teams above them.

17. COWBOYS – watching them lose is painful and fun at the same time. It’s confusing.

18. EAGLES – total chaos has set in. Putting Vick on the bench will signal the end.

19. RAMS – a much better team at home. Too bad the NFL called home “London” this week.

20. REDSKINS – note to Kyle Shanahan-sending RG3 out as a WR is dangerous!

21. BUCCANEERS – the offense has been on fire the last 2 weeks. How long will it last?

22. CHARGERS – the ugliness has officially started. Start the clock on Norv Turner.

23. BILLS – all those improvement in the off-season better start showing up.

24. RAIDERS – back to back wins. And now only a game out of first place in AFC West.

25. JETS – fans will look at the last 2 divisional games in the last 2 weeks and wonder.

26. BENGALS – the 2 teams ahead of them have problems & that will keep them in it.

27. TITANS – they used to be a tough team to beat at home. Not anymore.

28. SAINTS – Joe Vitt & Jonathan Vilma coming back didn’t help. Didn’t think it would.

29. BROWNS – not only out of the cellar, but out of the “30s” in the HZPR! Celebrate!

30. JAGUARS – showed a lot of heart hanging with the Pack with no MJD. Still no “W.”

31. PANTHERS – at least the lost respectable and Cam Newton didn’t pout publicly.

32. CHIEFS – Cassel. Quinn. Cassel. Does it matter? Not when you score the second fewest points in the league.
