The Denver Broncos finish the regular season on top of the TSN.ca NFL Power Rankings, after going back-and-forth with the second-ranked Seattle Seahawks over the last six weeks of the campaign.

Making a big jump in the final rankings, the Green Bay Packers vaulted from 19 to nine after getting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Randall Cobb back in the lineup. The Packers' defence remains questionable, especially while missing linebacker Clay Matthews, but Rodgers gives them a chance in the postseason.

A couple of also-rans, the Tennessee Titans and New York Jets, were mediocre, but more competitive than expected. As a result, the Titans moved up from 21 to 16 and the Jets from 24 to 18 in the final rankings.

One of the season's biggest surprises, the Kansas City Chiefs, lost five of seven down the stretch and fell from six to 11 in the rankings. After coughing up their shot at the postseason, the Chicago Bears dropped from 11 to 17, and the Miami Dolphins, who came back to earth in the final two games, dropped from 13 to 21.

All of this week's rankings include mention of the team's preseason rankings and where some differences were observed from the preseason ranking to the final ranking.

As mentioned, the Chiefs were the big surprise, up from 26 in the preseason, while the Houston Texans were the biggest disappointment, plummeting from a fourth-place ranking down to the bottom of the list by season's end.
