NFL Power Rankings Week 16

December 2020


NFL nation

At this time of year, the NFL Power Rankings discuss most teams, star players and general issues. That’s why we dedicate the Christmas rankings to the players of each team who missed out in 2020.

From players who need to be more stars than they are to players who take up less space, our NFL editors chose one player from each team and gave them late praise. How we stand in the energy field: Our panel of more than 80 editors, publishers and broadcasters evaluate the team’s performance throughout the season.

Week 15 Evaluation: 1

The most underestimated star: CB The Jarius needle

Not only was the rookie as reliable as one would expect from a Louisiana Tech draft pick in the fourth round of design, he was also a playmaker. Snead is third over the Chiefs with three interceptions, although he missed six games due to a broken collarbone. He had an interception, a bag and three broken assists in Sunday’s victory over Drew Brees and the Saints with a three-point lead. — Adam Thacher.

Week 15 stands: 3

The most underestimated star: WR Cole Beasley

While the focus was rightly on Stephon Diggs, Beasley had the best season of his career. He has set personal records for receptions, yards and yards per catch, and with two games remaining, he’s only 50 yards away from his first 1,000 yard season. Beasley is a replacement for quarterback Josh Allen, and without him in this attack it would be difficult to get the ball moving – even with the spectacular figures of Diggs. — Marcel Louis-Jacques

Week 15 Review: 2

The most underestimated star: OL Elgton Jenkins.

Jenkins played as a left guard in the NFL last season, and this season he has played everywhere, but as a right guard. That’s right: He played left guard, left tackle, right tackle and middle. This guy’s special, said Lucas Patrick, the Packers’ guard. I’ve never been near a player – not in high school, not in college, not at this level – who did this. After Corey Linsley’s knee injury in week 12, Jenkins started in the middle, a position that could become his permanent home if the Packers do not re-hire Linsley after this season. — Rob Demovsky

Week 15 stands: 5

The most underestimated star: Д. Trey Hendrickson.

The fourth-year pro is tied with Aaron Donald for the NFL lead with 12.5 sacks this season, including two on Sunday against Patrick Mahomes, as well as five QB shots and a forced fumble. Hendrickson has been a rotating reserve for most of his first three seasons, and even the Saints didn’t expect this breakthrough when they had trouble signing Jadeveon Clowney the week before the start of the season. The six-footed, seventy-kilo player took a big step forward when starter Marcus Davenport missed the first four games due to an injury and has not been slowed down since. — Mike Triplett

Fault! The file name is not specified. Game


Matthew Berry admits that Ryan Tannehill is not as conspicuous as Kyler Murray or Deshaun Watson, but Berry still thinks Tannehill is a legitimate QB1.

Week 15 stands: 8

The most underestimated star: QB Ryan Tannehill

Since the move of the franchise to Tennessee, Tannehill has quietly enjoyed one of his best seasons as a quarterback. His 31 touchdown passes are the most made by a quarterback in Tennessee, and with two more games to go in the season, he is 89 yards away from Matt Hasselbeck in 2011, with a total of 3,571 games. Tannehill’s passing game brings balance to the Titans’ attack and allows the teams to focus only on defender Derrick Henry. This season, the team averaged more than 30 points per game and scored 436 points in 14 games, the second highest total in the history of the franchise. — Turron Davenport

Week 15 Ranking: 4

The most underestimated star: DB Cameron button

The Steelers defense has had to deal with a lot of injuries lately, but they have been able to keep the game at a high level thanks to versatile substitutes like Sutton. Sutton is a defensive back, sometimes replacing Stephen Nelson, Joe Haden and Mike Hilton. In a season in which he has started four times, Sutton has three forced touches, one groping recovery and one interception, as well as seven intercepted passes. Sutton is playing in the last year of his contract and may not be in Pittsburgh much longer because he has earned a good salary on the open market. — Brooke Pryor.

Week 15 Ranking: 10

The most underestimated star: FBI Patrick Ricard

It may seem strange that a 303-pound player would go unnoticed, but Rickard is often overlooked in the NFL No. 1’s hasty attack. Even after the loss of Nick Boyle, the league’s top player, Baltimore continued to dominate the ongoing match by blocking Maine defensive lineman Rickard, who switched to the NFL offense. He put up so many defenders and linebackers who called quarterback Lamar Jackson Ricard Pankake Pat. — Jamison Hensley

Week 15 Ranking: 7

The most underestimated star: LT Duane Brown.

Brown, 35, enjoys a season worthy of a fifth Pro Bowl nomination. He finished third in the tackles on ESPN’s passing block with a 94.0% success rate and didn’t miss a single game. Brown takes regular leave of absence on a shortened training regime that seems to work. It’s incredible, said offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. I’d say he’s the heartbeat of the offensive line. He’s one of the leaders. For a guy who has so little practice time, it’s amazing to play at this level. — Brady Henderson

Week 15 stands: 11

– Sacred Peak shine at the right time?
– Roof, Wentz are bound, also as

– Rivera’s Soup to the Panthers.

The most underestimated star: Л. G. Joel Bitonio

The Browns have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. At the head of this unit is the always reliable Bitonio, who is on his way to his third Pro Bowl in a row. Bitonio leads the NFL in passing blocks under offensive linebackers and is also in the top ten for passing blocks. Unlike the last seasons, he has more help upstream thanks to the arrival of Jedrick Wills Jr. and Jack Conklin. With this Bitonio proves that he can be a driving force at the head of the dominant line. — Jake Trotter

Week 15 Ranking: 9

The most underestimated star: DL Denico Autry

Justin Houston and DeForest Buckner are the main players in the defensive line of the Colts. But Autry has also exerted his influence there. With 7.5 bags he’s connected to Houston and Buckner for the team’s number one bag. What makes Autry’s performance even more impressive is the fact that he scored those bags while missing two games because he was on the reserve list/COVID-19. — Mike Wells

Week 15 Review: 12

The most underestimated star: Succop K. Ryan

Succop achieved 92.6% of the field goal attempts, making it seventh in the championship and better than the team’s last eight seasons. Given how difficult it was for the Bucks to make Tom Brady believe in the attack, and how difficult it was for the Bucks to shoot after Matt Bryant, Succop’s consistency was invaluable. If you look at his history for his injuries, he was worth 50 [yards], said coach Bruce Arians. He’s gotten stronger. I can see him going 58 meters into the wind. … It’s good to know you get points for marketing a man. — Jenna Lane.

Week 15 Ranking: 13

The most underestimated star: Detective Emmanuel Ogbach.

The Dolphins have the two best defenses and Ogbah was the best player of the team in seven offensive line-up, improving significantly on the worst passing rush in the NFL in 2019 when Miami had 23 sacks and no player had more than five. Ogbah has a nine-bag team, which puts him in the top 10 in the league for 95 yards in the NFL. Ogbah has always won his individual battles by using his hands as well as possible. His two-year $15 million contract, signed last March, looks like a robbery, and he’s an excellent candidate for a long-term extension. — Cameron Wolfe

The most underestimated star: С. John Johnson III

In a top defense with star defender Aaron Donald and cornerback Jalen Ramsey Johnson doesn’t attract much attention. However, as a defensive cue, the fourth-year pro is essential for the success of unity. He has played 100 percent of the snaps and has 95 tackles and seven break passes to his name. When you have these safeties that have so much football capacity and so much power over everything that is going on, it is not the norm, said coach Sean McVay of Johnson’s signaling responsibilities. But John Johnson is a quite exceptional actor in terms of versatility. — Lindsay Tyree

Week 15 Ranking: 14

The most underestimated star: Л. B. Jordan Hicks

While the defense of the Cardinals is full of individual stars such as Chandler Jones, Buddha Baker, Patrick Peterson, Isaiah Simmons and Dennis Gardek, it is Hicks who holds the unity together like an inner lineman. He’s a defensive quarterback who’s barely off the field. He has played 901 knots this season, finishing second in the team and 22nd in the NFL, while leading the team in the suits. Hicks has been quietly consistent and has also led defensive tackles over the past season. Without him, the Cardinals’ defence wouldn’t have been in the top ten since week eight. — Josh Weinfuss.

Week 15 Review: 18

The most underestimated star: RT Morgan Moses

There are some good players, but they’ve all attracted attention, whether it’s P Tress Way, TE Logan Thomas or RB J.D. McKissic. Even DT Jonathan Allen, who deserves more praise, is part of the embellished D-line group. But Moses may have his best season, one of the worst. He devoted himself to off-season training and came in great shape at training camp, and his game paid off. Moses was a rock with many wounds. Due to several injuries to other players, Moses also started two leftist tackle games and played well, with Washington winning both. — John Keim.

Week 15 Review: 15

The most underestimated star: К. Daniel Carlson.

In the special teams of the Raiders, Carlson has been consistent in his performance: He converted 41 of 42 extra point attempts and 28 of 30 field goals, all of which were 50 yards or more. Trust? Coach Jon Gruden forced Carlson to try a 65-yard NFL record at the end of Thursday’s game against the Chargers, but a missed call canceled the drama. In fact, Carlson led the NFL by 125 points until Sunday (now tied). — Paul Gutierrez

The most underestimated star: LB Danny Trevathan

Trevathan is often overshadowed by teammate Roquan Smith, but the 30-year veteran has another solid season with 100 tackles in 14 games. Trevathan, who signed a three-year, $13.625 million contract. He suffered a serious elbow injury in November which placed him in an injured reserve and therefore had to be rehabilitated out of season, with a guarantee this season. With NFL teams forced to cut off their off-season programs and shorten training camps, Trevathan looked a little rusty early in the season, but he recovered well. Trevathan’s leadership skills are also a bonus for the Bears. — Jeff Dickerson

Week 15 Ranking: 16

The most underestimated star: RT Brian O’Neill.

It’s within the Viking’s offensive line that most of the problems that pass the team lie not with tackles, but with the defense. O’Neill has put together a strong season with a good tackle and gives the Vikings long-term security on the post, with a likely extension in the off-season. It has improved every year since its recruitment in 2018, being 26th out of 83 by Pro Football Focus and has been a positive point for a group that has seen many ups and downs this season. — Courtney Cronin

Fault! The file name is not specified. Game


Stephen A. Smith wants to keep Cam Newton away from the Patriots because he thinks Cam doesn’t fit the offence.

Week 15 Ranking: 17

The most underestimated star: P.J. Bailey/K Nick Falk.

Can the votes be divided between a player and a striker? Bailey seriously claims the honour of the All-Pro, which is significant given that he kicks in the northeast. In the last few games he averaged fourth (48.8 yards per shot) and first on net (46.1). He only had three touchbacks on 40 attempts, with 23 hits falling in the 20. They scored two goals of more than 50 metres on the pitch without any time left in the regulation and scored 25 consecutive goals on the pitch. — Mike Travel

Week 15 Review: 18

The most underestimated star: FS Jimmy Ward

Besides midfielder Fred Warner, no player in the Niners’ defence has more responsibility than Ward, who, after years of shifting back and forth between positions in the secondary defence, has finally established himself as a free defender. Although Ward would like to put more bonuses on his account, he would do well to let coordinator Robert Saleh take more risks knowing that Ward is in the right position at the back. — Nick Wagoner

The most underestimated star: WR Keenan Allen

He’s the most reliable catcher on the team. All is third in the competition at the receptions (100), thirteenth at the receptions (992) and tenth at the touchdown receptions (eight). Yet he is not often mentioned among the top recipients of the competition, but the Chargers count on him for sustainable leadership and impact. He’s one of the guys from QB Justin Herbert and the reason why the first choice is about to break the record for most touchdowns scored by a rookie. — Shelley Smith

Week 15 Review: 20

The most underestimated star: L.B. Blake Martinez

The impact of Martinez cannot be measured with statistics, even though they are quite good. He finished fourth in the NFL with 128 tackles and eight lost tackles, five QB hits, one interception and two forced fumbles. Martinez is an extension of defensive coordinator Patrick Graham on the field. He lined up the straight line of defence of the Giants and is at the centre of it all. It’s no coincidence that the Giants’ defence went from 25th to 12th this year. Their central defender, though not a star, is an integral part of their success. — Jordan Ranan

Fault! The file name is not specified. Game


Dan Orlovsky insists that Carson Wentz no longer plays for the Eagles because Jaylen Hurts was so good.

Week 15 stands: 24

The most underestimated star: Detective Brandon Graham.

He finally received a Pro Bowl assignment for the first time in his illustrious 11-year career. In two games Graham takes seven sacks, 12 tackles for the loss and 14 shots from the QB. More than just a Super Bowl LII hero, Graham has been a constant source of energy for the team over the past decade, a role that has become even more important in a year without fans in the stands. — Tim McManus.

Week 15 Ranking: 22

The most underestimated star: Shelby Harris.

In a season in which the Broncos have four defensive starters in reserve due to an injury, including Pro Bowl players like Von Miller and Jurrell Casey, and a fifth defensive starter in reserve for the rest of the season in A.J. Bouye and Harris, the Broncos have faced an injury problem. He is fourth in the league for batting (five), fourth in the team for bags (2.5) and third for quarterbacks. This despite the fact that he missed three matches because of COVID-19. Harris signed a one-year agreement last season to return to the team and will become a free agent in March. -Jeff Legwold

The most underestimated star: P.J. Fox.

Defender Romeo Okwara is another worthy candidate, but Fox has had a phenomenal beginner’s season. He has an average of 49.5 yards per kick and a net average of 45.5 yards per kick. Currently, his gross yardage average is 11th in NFL history and his net yardage average is 3rd in NFL history. He regularly spins in the fields and became a valuable asset in the training camp after winning Arryn Siposs in the nick of time. It now seems like a long-term solution for this position and is an area that the new general manager and team coach do not need to worry about. — Michael Rothstein

Week 15 Ranking: 28

The most underestimated star: TE Dalton Schultz

It’s a difficult choice because of the lack of success of the Cowboys, but Schultz was above average. He started the season with 13 receptions in his first two years, and when Blake Jarwin came out in the first week with a knee injury at the end of the season, the Cowboys needed Schultz to help them. He has 53 receptions for 524 yards and four touchdowns. He helped move the chains of a crime that needed help. Jarwin will be the starter when he is healthy again in 2021, but Schultz has shown that he can make a strong contribution. — Todd Archer

Week 15 Ranking: 26

The most underestimated star: WR Russell Gage.

With Julio Jones injured throughout the season, Gage became a major offensive player, posting most receptions (59), goals (94), yards (672) and touchdowns (three) with two games to go. At the age of 24, and by making changes with the Falcons, he has become not only an underestimated part of the Falcons’ present, but also a potentially dynamic part of their future. — Michael Rothstein

Week 15 Ranking: 27

The most underestimated star: DE/OLB Brian Burns

The Panthers have only two real differences in defense: Burns and rookie Jeremy Chinn. Chinn is best known as a candidate for Defence Rookie of the Year. His historic game against Minnesota, in which he scored several touchdowns in a row, also contributed to this. But the pressure that Burns exerted on the quarterfinals, despite the fact that there were only six sacks, was the key to Carolina’s defensive success. — David Newton

Week 15 Ranking: 30

In conversations with former players, coaches and celebrities, Peyton Manning looks at the history of football and its cultural influence. Watch on ESPN+

The most underestimated star: Jesse Bates III.

Outside of Cincinnati, Bates isn’t known for what he does. According to NFL Next Gen Stats, Bates leads all security with 15 pass deviations and has the lowest expected goals (minus 10.9). The great criticism of Bates this season is that he has not taken advantage of some major interception opportunities. Once again, the fact that Bates has been in the position of some potential pick-sizes shows how well he has played this season. If Bates had played in a good team, he probably would have gotten the recognition he deserves. — Ben Baby

Week 15 Ranking: 29

The most underestimated star: ILB Zach Cunningham.

The list is not long, as much of the Texans’ success is linked to QB Deshaun Watson’s play. But a player who appears in the statistics, even though the defense is bad, is Cunningham. The Texas coach of 2017, who signed a contract extension before the start of the season, leads the NFL selections. Zach had a good season, said interim head coach Romeo Crennel on Monday. He’s a very active advocate for us. He runs and hits. It fills the gaps and is productive in this respect. -Sarah Barshop

Fault! The file name is not specified. Game


Rich Cimini analyzes the impact of the Jets magnificent victory on the Rams and wonders if the franchise victory was worth the number one pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

Week 15 stands: 32

The most underestimated star: С. Marcus Maye

It’s hard to assign an MVP to a team 1-13, but Maye has played almost every move and has two interceptions, two fumbles and seven broken passes. He’s actually a free security guy, but he also played a few games as a strong security guy because the team needed him there. At the age of 27, he is a senior officer in the children’s high school corps. He’s not as dynamic as the former Jet Jamal Adams, but he’s consistent and smart. May will be a free agent after the season and the Jets have to fire him. — Rich Cimini

Week 15 Ranking: 31

The most underestimated star: П. Logan Cook.

The Jaguars are 1-on-13, so I take the credit for that, but Cook has become one of the best players in the league. He averaged 43.4 yards at net and was sixth, making 11 shots within the 10-yard line. In fact, it makes it a little harder for the opponents to score an average of 30.2 points per game against the Jaguars’ defence. — Mike DiRocco.
