NFL Power Rankings, Week 17: Eagles rise, Seahawks fall, Titans stay put
Recap: The Vikings took a 19-10 lead into the second half of their Week 15 game against the Chargers, but were able to buckle down on defense and hold LA to no points in the final two quarters, while the offense scored 20 unanswered to secure the win.
Outlook: A crucial Monday Night Football game against the Packers awaits. While the Vikings have already clinched a playoff berth thanks to the Rams’ loss to the Niners, the Vikings could also grab the NFC North title if they can win out and the Packers lose out.
Recap: After the Packers owned a 21-3 lead over the Bears going into the fourth quarter of the Week 15 game, the Bears showed some signs of life and climbed to within one score. The Bears would go on to strike out on all three of their final drives and Green Bay was able to walk out of Lambeau Field with a win.
Outlook: The Packers are now looking at a huge Monday Night Football matchup with the Vikings. If the Packers win, they’ll have the NFC North wrapped up going into Week 17 and a shot at the one of the top two seeds in the NFC. If the Vikings win, the Packers will be fighting for a division title and will need a win or a Vikings loss to secure the NFC North.
