Week 15 NFL Power Rankings: Titans & Broncos rise, Texans & Patriots fall
By Will Lomas
24. Arizona Cardinals
What happened to the Cardinals? They looked like a fun team that had enough splashy play in them to make them interesting, but losing to a the Pittsburgh Steelers led by Duck Hodges isn’t it.
Kyler Murray has been regressing lately, at least statistically, and with an offensive line that needs to be completely rebuilt you have to think that teams are going to keep attacking him and forcing him into more turnovers and sacks.
The Cardinals are still a top heavy team with stars like Chandler Jones, but it obviously isn’t enough to overcome other issues and talent deficiencies.
23. Atlanta Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons have been a completely different team over the last month or so compared to the inept team that the Marcus Mariota led Titans rolled all over in the first few weeks of the season.
Even without Julio Jones dominating and scoring points the Falcons had contributions from all across the roster showing how deep they were. Two players had rushing TDs, two had receiving TDs and two different players had multi sack games.
That sort of depth and effectiveness makes a big difference and the Falcons look like a team that should scare you if you need to beat them to make the playoffs.
