SLR’s Week 17 NFL Power Rankings: 26-32

35. Losing to the Jaguars on national television is a good way to cement bottom-dweller status in the rankings.. 2-13. Last Week: 32. Tennessee Titans. 32. player

Last Week: 30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 31. player. 48. “Suck for the Duck” or not, the Bucs certainly suck.. 2-13

3-12. Last Week: 31. Jacksonville Jaguars. 30. player. 52. A late-season win over the Titans doesn’t qualify as a momentum-building win heading into the offseason, but it’s better than what most of the season has been for the Jaguars.

30. It’s two moral victories for the Jets against the Patriots in 2014, but zero actual victories against the NFC East powerhouse.. 3-12. Last Week: 28. New York Jets. 29. player

28. Just three wins on the year but it’s not a bad trio with victories over the Chiefs, 49ers and Bills.. 3-12. Last Week: 27. Oakland Raiders. 27. player

The Bears put on a good performance against the Bears, which will fuel the anti-Cutler narrative. While Clausen held his own, the story of the Bears’ competitiveness against the Lions was really about the defense and special teams coming up big.. 5-10. Last Week: 25. Chicago Bears. 26. player. 57

Next: 21-25
