In the Week 13 edition of our NFL power rankings, the New York Jets take flight while the Baltimore Ravens come crashing down.

1-9-1. Previous: . Houston Texans. 32. team. 10.

This has become an abject disgrace.

3-8. Previous: . Denver Broncos. 31. team. 45.

If the Broncos were any bigger of a disaster, they’d be Gigli.

57. . 3-9. Previous: . Chicago Bears. 30. team

Without Justin Fields, this is an unwatchable football team.

3-8. Previous: . Los Angeles Rams. 29. team. 51.

The Rams should just rip out the December page of their calendar and call it a day.

Previous: . Carolina Panthers. 28. team. 87. . 4-8

Sam Darnold looked good? Not really, but he looked like Joe Montana compared to Russell Wilson.

team. 55. . 4-7. Previous: . Pittsburgh Steelers. 27

Kenny Pickett is flashing a bit, and right now, that’s all Pittsburgh cares about.

. 4-7. Previous: . Las Vegas Raiders. 26. team. 28

Two straight wins for the Silver and Black. Josh Jacobs is having an awesome season.

New Orleans Saints. 25. team. 15. . 4-8. Previous:

The offense has completely derailed. Tough season in the Big Easy.

Arizona Cardinals. 24. team. 32. . 4-8. Previous:

Chernobyl has nothing on this meltdown.

4-7-1. Previous: . Indianapolis Colts. 23. team. 46.

The Colts are hideous and somehow hang around in every game. It’s confounding.

Previous: . Green Bay Packers. 22. team. 49. . 4-8

It’s time to start Jordan Love and see what you have in the kid.

21. team. 53. . 4-7. Previous: . Cleveland Browns

Somehow, the Browns beat the Buccaneers. They should send Todd Bowles a gameball.

Detroit Lions. 20. team. 50. . 4-7. Previous:

Detroit is showing some real life, but the end of its Thanksgiving loss was insanity. Clock management 101 is needed.

Previous: . Jacksonville Jaguars. 19. team. 52. . 4-7

The Jaguars scored 18 points in the final six minutes to stun the Ravens. Huge win for Trevor Lawrence and that program.

. 5-7. Previous: . Atlanta Falcons. 18. team. 44

Has any team ever figured out more ridiculous ways to lose?

team. 47. . 6-5. Previous: . New England Patriots. 17

The season is on the line with Buffalo coming to town on Thursday night.

. 5-6. Previous: . Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 16. team. 48

Todd Bowles and Byron Leftwich are smart men, but they’ve done a poor job with the Buccaneers this season.

. 6-5. Previous: . Los Angeles Chargers. 15. team. 13

The Chargers aren’t moving up for that circus of a win over an awful Cardinals team.

14. team. 36. . 6-5. Previous: . Seattle Seahawks

Seattle can’t start falling apart now. The Seahawks are in trouble, but can get right with the Rams and Panthers up next.

Previous: . New York Jets. 13. team. 30. . 7-4

Mike White is Joe Namath. Not really, but compared to Zach Wilson? Might as well be.

. 7-5. Previous: . Washington Commanders. 12. team. 58

Taylor Heinicke and the defense are elevating Washington to a playoff contender.

team. 35. . 7-4. Previous: . Tennessee Titans. 11

Tennessee is a good-but-limited team. The Titans need to find some big plays.

New York Giants. 10. team. 31. . 7-4. Previous:

New York is starting to show its lack of talent. Big week to get right, or there will be some panic for Big Blue.

Previous: . Baltimore Ravens. 9. team. 26. . 7-4

How many of these big fourth-quarter leads do the Ravens blow before we call them pretenders?

7-4. Previous: . Cincinnati Bengals. 8. team. 56.

The Bengals are showing why they’re a championship contender. Good in all phases.

60. . 9-2. Previous: . Minnesota Vikings. 7. team

Minnesota had to beat New England after getting pummeled by the Cowboys, and it did just that.

Previous: . San Francisco 49ers. 6. team. 42. . 7-4

San Francisco is getting healthier and starting to take off at the right time.

123. . 8-3. Previous: . Dallas Cowboys. 5. team

Dallas has the roster to be a real problem come January. Also, the Cowboys are quietly hanging around in the NFC East.

16. . 8-3. Previous: . Buffalo Bills. 4. team

The Bills are staggering a bit, but they remain every bit the contender they’ve been all along.

. 8-3. Previous: . Miami Dolphins. 3. team. 59

Miami’s defense is about to be tested with a three-game road trip featuring the Niners, Chargers and Bills coming up.

. 10-1. Previous: . Philadelphia Eagles. 2. team. 54

Philadelphia answered two uneven weeks with a 40-burger on the Packers. Tremendous team.

124. . 9-2. Previous: . Kansas City Chiefs. 1. team

When the Chiefs are right, there’s nothing like them in the NFL.
