Week 13 AP NFL power rankings: Jalen Hurts’ MVP moment keeps Eagles on top

The Arrowhead Pride team ranks the league from top to bottom.

What a weird week in the NFL.

First, you had Tom Brady making the “back in my day” kinds of statements that we’ve become accustomed to hearing from elderly relatives around the Christmas dinner table — only for Alex Smith to come out and bury Brady (and oddly enough, Rex Ryan, too).

Then we had the craziness of the Hail Mary pick-6 from the Dolphins-Jets debacle — a play that no one will forget in a hurry.

And to top it off, the Chiefs did the craziest thing of all: scoring on multiple second-half drives against the Raiders.

This week’s voters were Stephen Serda, Rocky Magana, Matt Stagner, Maurice Elston, Jared Sapp, Nate Christensen, Dakota Watson, and myself

1. Philadelphia Eagles (1st)

Jalen Hurts will win the MVP.

2. San Francisco 49ers (3rd)

The late game on Thanksgiving disappoints once again.

3. Baltimore Ravens (2nd)

Their next few games include the 49ers, Dolphins and Jaguars. If they get through them, then they deserve the No. 1 seed.

4. Kansas City Chiefs (4th)

I don’t blame Justin Watson for getting in the Raiders defender’s face — although my money would be on Watson to lose that fight.

5. Dallas Cowboys (7th)

DaRon Bland is anything but.

6. Miami Dolphins (6th)

Just ban artificial turf, please.

7. Jacksonville Jaguars (8th)

That felt like a big-boy win for the Jaguars.

8. Detroit Lions (5th)

So... their Kryptonite is playing good teams?

9. Houston Texans (10th)

Tank Dell is quickly becoming one of my favorite NFL players.

10. Buffalo Bills (111th)

Imagine not trusting your quarterback to move the ball into field goal range with 20 seconds (and a timeout) left.

11. Pittsburgh Steelers (13th)

I would pay good money to be a fly on the wall when the coaching staff reviews the play in which Diontae Johnson decided to daydream.

12. Cleveland Browns (9th)

As long as they have Myles Garrett, they have a chance.

13. Seattle Seahawks (12th)

Screams of one-and-done.

14. Denver Broncos (16th)

The Broncos are going to make the playoffs.

15. Minnesota Vikings (14th)

Josh Dobbs was giving away interceptions like they were Christmas presents. At least he is in the holiday spirit!

16. Indianapolis Colts (19th)

Gardner Minshew in the playoffs would be hilarious.

17. Cincinnati Bengals (15th)

If they can’t muster up enough offensive production to beat the Steelers, then what chance do they stand for the rest of the season?

18. Green Bay Packers (22nd)

Of course Jordan Love finds some form just before his team hosts the Chiefs.

19. Atlanta Falcons (25th)

As it stands, the Falcons will be hosting a playoff game. Make it make sense, please.

20. Los Angeles Chargers (18th)

Brandon Staley may be fired by the time you get to the bottom of these rankings.

21. Los Angeles Rams (23rd)

While the Rams may be out of playoff contention, they feel like a team that could still have an impact on the season.

22. New Orleans Saints (17th)

I swear: Derek Carr throws that same pick-6 every single season.

23. Las Vegas Raiders (20th)

Sorry, Amik Robertson... the Raiders are not better than the Chiefs.

24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (21st)

Another missed opportunity.

25. Tennessee Titans (26th)

The Panthers are among the few teams that Will Levis can beat.

26. Washington Commanders (24th)

Will we ever see Jack Del Rio as a coordinator ever again? I’m not so sure.

27. New York Jets (27th)

Only the Jets. Will the Hail Mary pick-6 turn out to be more memorable than the Butt Fumble?

28. Chicago Bears (9th)

12-10 is a score that belongs to a really boring rugby union match.

29. Arizona Cardinals (28th)

Is it a Kyler problem — or do the Cardinals’ issues go way beyond him?

30. New York Giants (31st)

No matter how bad the Giants are, you can always rely on them to beat the Patriots.

31. New England Patriots (30th)

They’ve got so much to do to be good again. It genuinely could be years until they’re competitive. What a shame!

32. Carolina Panthers (32nd)

David Tepper is a terrible sports franchise owner.
