Now, Cincinnati still has some work to do to put themselves in a position to make a run in the playoffs. The offense looked to have a had a breakthrough in the run game on Sunday vs. the Chargers. If they can begin to have a more balanced offense that doesn’t require Dalton to throw it 40-plus times per game while utilizing one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, then this team has all the ingredients to finish they year in the AFC Championship, or even the Super Bowl.

All of that being said, here are my own personal power rankings:
