NFL power rankings 2013, Week 16: Seahawks, Broncos are consensus top 2

Elsa

The Seattle Seahawks earned a shutout victory on Sunday and are all alone at the top of the media power rankings.

A shutout victory over the New York Giants got the Seattle Seahawks back on track and back in to the consensus top spot on the curated power rankings with the Denver Broncos just behind them.

Climbing up the rankings with big Week 15 victories were the Baltimore Ravens and Green Bay Packers, who both have chances at the postseason thanks to their come-from-behind wins. The Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions weren't as fortunate, as both teams slid down the rankings.

At the bottom remain the Houston Texans and Washington Redskins as the consensus worst and second-worst teams in the NFL, respectively.
