Week 16 NFL Power Rankings: Chiefs and Packers lock in on top seeds
By Will Lomas
22. Las Vegas Raiders (-5)
Man, what a fall from grace for the Raiders whose season is now all but over. After losing four of their last five with their lone victory being a play where the Jets gave up in order to keep ahold of the top pick, it feels like the Raiders are a distant memory.
The worst part about all of this is that the Raiders came into the seasons with rumors about a future QB change being mulled, and Marcus Mariota came in and made that offense look genuinely fun last week. With a mid-first round pick, there isn’t going to be a QB that they take to start of Carr, so what is the plan?
21. New York Giants (+0)
A good fight where the Giant took a lot of risks in the redzone in order to compete with a Cleveland Browns team that was just better, it is hard to get too down on New York. They are missing their starting quarterback and one of the best running backs in the NFL and they still found themselves in a position to compete with the Browns.
This is a team that is going to get some buzz this offseason and a full offseason program together with this staff and this core group of players should make the Giants dangerous in 2021.
