Four. That’s how many teams remain alive in the NFL, while 28 turn their attention to coaching searches, free agency and the NFL draft, a quartet plays on, striving for that elusive Super Bowl title.
With the AFC and NFC Championship Games looming this Sunday, the editors at cover32 break down the teams still in the hunt. Here’s this week’s Power Rankings:
1. Seattle Seahawks (14-3)
A monster defensive effort propelled them to an eight point win against the Saints with a little help from a boneheaded Marques Colston in the closing seconds. Didn’t it feel like destiny to get the Seahawks and 49ers for a third time this season with a Super Bowl trip on the line? Even though it was months ago, it’s hard to forget just how badly Seattle put it on San Francisco in Week 2 at CenturyLink Field – a performance they’ll look to duplicate Sunday. (LW: 1)
