Here’s where we stand on the eve of Thanksgiving:
The Bills, who are free-falling IRL (they’re now the #7 seed in the AFC and have lost the division lead to the Patriots), still remain atop the power ratings. But the top-5 teams are all pretty close to one another now, and the Bills are no longer in a class of their own.
The Colts are now #7 after their 41-15 win over those Bills, and the Chiefs, after a rough start to the season, are back into the top-10 now.
The Eagles at #12 may be the most surprising team in terms of teams that the ratings consider to be good that most people don’t see as being good.
The Steelers, on the other hand, are #25 in the ratings despite being just a half-game outside the playoffs in the AFC. Yikes.
