NFL Power Rankings Heading Into Week 16 - Who Is The New Team On Top?

After a great Monday Night Football game where the Atlanta Falcons beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-21 on the shoulders of running back Devonta Freeman, week 15 is over which means we can begin our Power Rankings heading into Week 16. Our methodology behind these rankings is based on which teams our experts think are the best in the NFL. If a team wins, they aren't guaranteed to jump up the rankings just like if a team loses they aren't necessarily guaranteed to fall. Here's a rundown of the NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 16, as voted on by our Chat Sports NFL experts.

31.) New York Giants (2-12)

30.) Indianapolis Colts (3-11)
Last Week: 30
The Colts couldn't get anything going on offense against the Broncos on Thursday Night Football and have another tough matchup against the Ravens this week.

The good news for the Texans is they are home in Week 16, the bad news is they get an angry Steelers team.

The Bears offense struggled against the Lions, but the defense played well, holding one of the highest scoring offenses in the league to only 20 points.

27.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-10)
Last Week: 27
The Bucs suffered a tough loss on Monday Night Football to division rival the Atlanta Falcons. Jameis Winston played well throwing for 299 yards and three touchdowns.
