Can't get enough of ESPN's Power Rankings? Good, because we're bringing you a bonus playoff version.
After a wild-card round that produced an epic Bengals meltdown, heartbreak for the Vikings and much more, the playoff field is down to eight. Are the top seeds clearly a cut above? Who could be poised to surprise?
Below is how ESPN's Power Panel sees the postseason field heading into the divisional round. Spoiler alert: Broncos fans, pleased a week ago, will likely be fired up after seeing our revised order.
Note: "Last week" refers to the Week 18 rankings. The comments below are provided by ESPN Stats & Information.
Record: 15-1 | Last week: 1 | Divisional round: vs. Seattle
The Panthers finished the regular season with an NFL-best 15-1 record, two wins more than any other team. The Panthers draw the Seahawks in the divisional round, a team Cam Newton is 1-4 against in his career.
Record: 13-3 | Last week: 4 | Divisional round: vs. Green Bay
The Cardinals enter the postseason coming off a 30-point loss to the Seahawks. The good news, though, is the game before that, they put up a 30-point victory over the Packers, their divisional-round opponent.
Record: 12-4 | Last week: 5 | Divisional round: vs. Kansas City
Tom Brady enters the postseason on a two-game losing streak for the first time in his career, and he takes on the Chiefs in the divisional round, a team that beat the Patriots 41-14 last season.
Record: 11-6 | Last week: 3 | Divisional round: at Carolina
Russell Wilson is now 6-1 in his playoff career against NFC opponents (7-2 overall), but can Seattle keep relying on comebacks? Wilson hasn't completed a pass in the first quarter of his past three playoff games.
Record: 12-4 | Last week: 2 | Divisional round: vs. Pittsburgh
The Steelers overcame a 27-10 deficit to beat the Broncos in Week 15, but Brock Osweiler was Denver's quarterback. Can Peyton Manning do better? He's averaging only 0.12 points per drive more than Osweiler this season.
Record: 12-5 | Last week: 8 | Divisional round: at New England
The Chiefs extended their NFL-best winning streak to 11 games with a 30-0 victory over the Texans in the wild-card round. Takeaways have been key for the Chiefs during the streak (plus-20), but the Patriots committed the fewest this season (14).
Record: 11-6 | Last week: 10 | Divisional round: at Arizona
Aaron Rodgers was pressured on a season-low 16 percent of his dropbacks in the wild-card round, leading to 35 Packers points. In Week 16 against the Cardinals, the Packers scored eight points as Rodgers was sacked eight times.
Record: 11-6 | Last week: 7 | Divisional round: at Denver
Ben Roethlisberger was shaken up in the wild-card round and the Steelers are already on their third-string running back. But Pittsburgh's wide receivers gained 338 yards on 32 receptions against Denver's vaunted secondary in Week 15.
