NFL Team Rankings (12/12/2017)

Last Updated: 12/15/2017 8:46 AM ET

To build the NFL Power Rankings below, we "played" every team against every other team 50,000 times each and ranked by overall winning percentage of those games. These Power Rankings are as of 12/12/2017 rosters and projected depth charts.

The efficiency metrics (O-Pass Eff, O-Rush Eff, D-Pass Eff, D-Rush Eff) are measured on a per play basis. For example, the team ranked with the #1 O-Pass Eff would be expected to gain the most yards per passing attempt, while the team ranked #32 would be expected to gain the least.
