San Francisco 49ers: Week 16 NFL Power Rankings (#1)

Last week: 2 (+1)

Record: 10-3-1

Net points per drive: 0.90 (2nd)

DVOA: 34.8% (4th)

Weighted DVOA: 35.1% (4th)

The 49ers won last week and earned this spot, at least until they lose in Seattle this week. Then would Seattle be #1 even though you can’t trust them to win a single road playoff game, let alone 3 (4 if you include the neutral site Super Bowl)? Would it be the Patriots again, even though they just lost to the 49ers? Or would the 49ers stay put even though they’d have 4 losses and a tie? Or would I have to put the Packers here just because, even though I haven’t been impressed by them, I feel like they’re being given just enough doubt to go on a huge run once they’re healthy? All I can say is, it’s going to be a fun finish.
