Week 12 Power Rankings: Why every NFL team is thankful
7:00 AM ET
It’s that time of the year again to count your blessings, and NFL teams should be doing it, too.
In the Week 12 edition of the Power Rankings, our NFL Nation reporters adopted a Turkey Day theme and found a reason each team should be giving thanks.
How we rank: Our power panel — a group of more than 80 writers, editors and TV personalities — evaluated how teams stack up through the first 11 weeks of the season.
Week 11 ranking: 1
Thankful for: Drew Brees and Sean Payton are better than ever in Year 13 together. Brees has been doing some amazing things for a long time, but nothing compares to the insane season he is having at age 39 (25 TD passes, one interception and a 76.9 completion percentage). Meanwhile, Payton is still coming up with creative new wrinkles on a weekly basis for an offense that is averaging 48 points per game over the past three weeks. — Mike Triplett
Week 11 ranking: 3
Thankful for: Owner Stan Kroenke.
