NFL Power Rankings, Week 13: Titans rise, Raiders and Packers fall
18. Philadelphia Eagles (5-6)
Recap: It was an ugly afternoon for Carson Wentz, who threw two picks and fumbled the ball three times against the Seattle Seahawks, losing two. As a result of Wentz’s struggles, the Philadelphia Eagles didn’t score a touchdown until the final minute of regulation as the Seahawks easily notched the win on Sunday.
Outlook: Just when the Eagles looked to be getting healthy on defense, their offense is now dealing with injuries on the offensive line and in the receiving corps. Thankfully for the Eagles, the Cowboys can’t do anything to take control of this division. Philly heads to Miami to take on the Dolphins in Week 13.
17. Carolina Panthers (5-6)
Recap: The Carolina Panthers trailed for much of their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints, but had a chance to take a late lead with a 28-yard field goal in the final two minutes. Kicker Joey Slye would go on to miss the field goal, and Drew Brees would turn around and lead his team on a drive that resulted in the game-winning kick.
Outlook: In what is an incredibly crowded NFC playoff picture, the Panthers find themselves in 10th place in the conference and three games behind the No. 6 seed, the Minnesota Vikings. With its playoff hopes already dashed, Carolina will host the Washington Redskins in Week 13.
