NFL Power Rankings Week 14: A Favorite Is Emerging in the NFC

December 03, 2019 - 10:24 am

In last week's RADIO.COM NFL Power Rankings, we lamented the fact that it appeared that Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson seemed to have picked the wrong year to have the finest season of his illustrious career. Not only did Wilson appear on pace to finish runner-up in the NFL MVP race, but the Seahawks, despite having lost just two games in 2019, were on track to finish second in their own division.

What a difference a week can make.

Wilson still trails Baltimore Ravens' quarterback Lamar Jackson in the NFL MVP race, but because Jackson and the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers, the Seahawks are now even atop the NFC West at 10-2. Remember, the Seahawks defeated the 49ers in San Francisco in Week 10, and they'll host them again in Week 17. Winning the NFC West may be the difference between having a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, or having to go on the road on Wild Card Weekend.
