NFL Power Rankings Week 15








1. Baltimore Ravens (12-2)

Beat New York Jers 42-21

It's almost mind boggling watching Lamar.  There will come a time when defenses figure him out, but its not likely to be this year.  Mid season he was an amazing running back who ocasionally made plays in the passing game.  In just weeks, he has become a full blown quarterback.  Is there a D in the AFC that can stop him now?  Probably not.
