Video: NFL Ultimate Standings Nos. 17-24

Blame or credit 15 ESPN panelists for ranking NFC West teams no higher than 17th in their ultimate NFL standings.
The San Francisco 49ers were 17th, the Arizona Cardinals were 21st and the Seattle Seahawks were 24th -- with the St. Louis Rams at No. 32.
The video shows ESPN's Adam Schefter singling out the Tennessee Titans and Washington Redskins as the teams most likely to surprise from those ranked 17th to 24th. One of the NFC West teams in this group will likely earn an automatic playoff berth as division champion, making them one of the final 12 teams, if not necessarily one of the 12 best.
The Redskins and 49ers will make for fun comparisons stemming from discussions earlier this offseason regarding whether San Francisco should have made a run for Donovan McNabb.
