The top four teams in last week’s standings – the Eagles, Chiefs, Bills and Bengals – all ran the business in their final games. But a new team joined them in the top five.
After Week 15, here’s my take on the league’s top 10 teams.
first. Philadelphia Eagles (13-1)
The most complete team in football that can withstand a double interception attempt from Jalen hurts due to the appearance of a disruptive defense specializing in the production of bags and takeaways. Even though the MVP candidate posted three hasty hits first Chicago bearThe defense produced six sacks and a takeaway hit to ensure victory.
Jalen Hurts leads the Eagles to a tough 25-20 win over the Bears
Jalen Hurts had 315 yards of passing, another 61 yards of dash and 3 hasty touches of the day.
2. Chief of Kansas City (11-3)
The captain quietly won their seventh straight tournament championship despite overcoming a host of new catchers and pass runners. With Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes demonstrating the ability to adapt, adjust, and evolve with anyone on the belt, the Captains are always a threat to win with or without the stars on the belt.
3. buffalo bill (11-3)
It didn’t always go well with the Bills, but they found a way to get it done. by Josh Allen The ability to take over the game as a runner or passer allows the offensive team to fend off any defensive tactics. With a “tough hustle” defense that brings out-of-the-box energy and effort to the field, the Bills can win with glitz or grit in high-stakes games.
4. Cincinnati Bengals (10-4)
The AFC defending champions are forming as a potential candidate. Defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo makes the defenders noisy while Joe Burrow and Co. continue to light up the scoreboard across the league.
5. San Francisco 49ers (10-4)
Despite playing with their QB3, the 49ers look like a championship contender reaching the top at the right time. Brock Purdy is managing the game as a seasoned vet who understands how to win playing complementary soccer.
Brock Purdy, 49ers take NFC West with victory over Seahawks in Week 15
Kyle Shanahan called Brock Purdy “the most poised rookie I’ve ever had.” Ignore Bayless and Shannon Sharpe’s reaction to the Niners’ victory.
6. Minnesota Vikings (11-3)
Credit to Kevin O’Connell for assembling a resilient team with the courage and confidence to bounce back from slow starts and bad plays. Vikings’ record comeback is part of a season-long trend that suggests this team will find it difficult to qualify for the knockout stages.
7. dalas cowboy (10-4)
The Cowboys’ immaturity and lack of focus was the only thing keeping them from winning the title. The extremely talented squad squandered their 17-point lead in a nasty loss that should have been an easy win in theory.

The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars despite being a road favorite. Bypass Bayless shares who is most to blame for Team America’s downfall.
8. Baltimore Crows (9-5)
The Ravens will have a hard time winning in the long run with a punchless attack that desperately misses. lamar Jackson. Without the former MVP, Raven couldn’t produce enough explosive play to score points against good teams.
9. Los Angeles charger (8-6)
The Chargers have a superstar midfielder and a dynamic supporting cast to throw “40 burgers” at any opponent. If the defense can control the opponent’s running games while limiting the big plays (deep ball), then the Chargers can win the title as the dark horse in the AFC.
ten. Miami Dolphins (8-6)
The weather-resistant Dolphins have enough offensive firepower to create problems in the knockout stages, but they must find a way to win games when the offense isn’t taking place. The play of the defense over the long term will not only determine whether the Dolphins enter the league post-season, but also whether the team can make a splash as a wild card team.
Does Tua deserve more credit for the Dolphins’ loss than Josh Allen, Bills?
The Miami Dolphins were frozen by the Buffalo Bills with a 32-29 loss despite the frigid temperatures. Colin Cowherd explains why the Allen-Tua debate shouldn’t exist.
