After the events of the NFL’s Wild-Card weekend, there are eight teams left vying for a Super Bowl, which resulted in them making the cut in the divisional round edition of the NFL Power Rankings.
There are eight teams that have made the cut for the divisional round edition of the NFL Power Rankings after Wild-Card weekend.
Depending on how you look at things, there were two major upsets of the four playoff games that took place this weekend, as both No. 6 seeds in each conference toppled the No. 3 seeds.
First, the Tennessee Titans took down the defending champion New England Patriots on Saturday night, then the Minnesota Vikings upended the New Orleans Saints in the early game on Sunday afternoon.
It was a mixed bag with the 4-5 matchups, though.
The No. 4 seeded Houston Texans defeated the No. 5 seeded Buffalo Bills on Saturday afternoon, while the No. 5 seeded Seattle Seahawks went on the road and defeated the No. 4 seeded Philadelphia Eagles.
In all, three of the four road teams emerged victorious in the first round.
That leaves eight teams still in contention for the most coveted prize in the NFL, and we’re going to take a look at each team remaining and rank them from worst to best.
