Divisional Round Power Rankings

1 – Kansas City Chiefs

Not much to say here after the Chiefs enjoyed their bye last week. In the Divisional Round, they’ll be going up against the Jaguars after the crazy comeback on Saturday night. If we’re being honest, the Chiefs probably would rather play the Jags than the Chargers, who they see twice a year, but you can’t underestimate anyone at this point in the year. 

2 – San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco let Seattle hang around for a bit before promptly blowing them out in the second half of Saturday’s Wild Card game. In terms of star players, it’s hard to find a roster with more than the 49ers. If Brock Purdy can clean up his game a little against the better defenses while continuing to keep the ball in his hands, San Francisco may be destined to go all the way this season.  

3 – Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles’ season may rely on the health of Jalen Hurts. Over the last few weeks of the season, we saw his backup come in for two games and Hurts play at less than full health for one, and the team was not the same. Thankfully, the team was able to secure the top-seed in the NFC and get a much-needed bye week for Hurts as well as many other key pieces. 

4- Buffalo Bills

The Bills narrowly avoided disaster on Sunday as 14-point favorites against the Miami Dolphins. After going up 17-0, Buffalo let Skylar Thompson and the Dolphins quickly get back in the game before halftime. To win again this weekend in the Divisional Round, Buffalo will have to be significantly better on both sides of the ball.  

5 – Cincinnati Bengals

Like the Bills, Cincinnati didn’t look their best on Sunday either. Without a 99-yard fumble return in the fourth quarter, the Bengals would have been most likely needing a touchdown with under 10 minutes left in the game to get back to even with Baltimore. However, in the playoffs, it’s all about winning. This team still knows how to get the job done at this time of year and has one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Joe Burrow.  

6 – Dallas Cowboys

Dallas was the most dominant team in Wild Card Weekend, and even though it was against the Bucs, that must count for something. One of the most exciting things about Monday’s game was the play of Dak Prescott. Dak was fantastic from start to finish and accounted for all five Dallas touchdowns. Unfortunately, they’ll have to go into San Francisco to take on arguably the hottest team in the NFL in the Divisional Round and they’ll have to do it with a kicker who missed a record FOUR extra points in Monday’s game. 

7 – New York Giants

Daniel Jones and the Giants looked terrific on Sunday, taking down the Minnesota Vikings by a score of 31-24. Although many people had little belief in the Vikings’ postseason, nothing can be taken away from New York’s performance. With Brian Daboll at the helm and Jones playing the best ball of his career, the Giants won’t be an easy win for any team. 

8 – Jacksonville Jaguars

Finally, the Jaguars. In a tale of two halves, the Jags somehow pulled out a win against the Chargers on Saturday and will now take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round. To beat Kansas City, they’ll have to play just like they did for the last 30 minutes of last week’s game. Regardless of where they go from here, though, it was terrific to watch Trevor Lawrence bounce back the way he did last week. Jacksonville definitely has their QB of the future.
