Week 15 NFL Power Rankings: One key stat for each team
By Will Lomas
12. L.A. Rams (+3)
Key stat: Aaron Donald is set to be the first defensive tackle to lead the NFL in sacks twice
The win over the New England Patriots was dominant even though everyone is talking more about the collapse of that franchise instead of the domination by the Rams defense.
Speaking of which, I might be wrong because it is hard to tell how to classify defensive linemen who were lined up all over, but I believe we are seeing defensive tackle Aaron Donald trend toward leading the NFL in sacks twice.
Not only would it be astounding to lead the NFL in sacks two out of three years, but to do it as a defensive tackle would be unheard of.
11. Baltimore Ravens (-2)
Key stat: The Ravens finish the season with three opponents that average less than 3 wins
The Ravens haven’t played their game for this week and getting everyone off the COVID list will be huge. However, they really don’t need much help getting into the playoffs when you consider that they actually have an incredibly easy schedule ahead.
Baltimore finishes with three teams that average for 2.7 wins per team and there is a good chance that their final three games will all include teams with nothing to play for at all after being mathematically eliminated.
