The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Ranking the 8 Remaining Playoff Teams

Ranking the 8 Remaining Playoff Teams

Ranking the Playoff Teams!
Publish Date: 01/12/2019
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

As we head into the divisional playoff round of the 2018-19 NFL season, I thought it would be a good time to look at which team is really the best and where everybody truly ranks this year. Some of these rankings might surprise you but this is an honest opinion of where these eight teams rate headed into this week’s games.

1) New Orleans Saints

The Saints are number one because they may be the most complete football team out there. They have a future Hall of Fame Quarterback in Drew Brees, a Head Coach that has won a Super Bowl, a solid defense and they can run the ball. What more could you want?

2) Los Angeles Chargers

I know I will get angry emails about this ranking but hear me out before typing. The Chargers have a dominant defense and if you don’t believe me just ask the Ravens. They can pressure with the front seven and the secondary is one of the best in football. On offense, they just got better as it looks like Tight End Hunter Henry will return for this week’s game in New England. The offense has been much improved this year and they have Running Back Melvin Gordon toting the rock. Add in a veteran Quarterback in Phillip Rivers and you have a team that has everything it needs to make a Super Bowl run.

3) Indianapolis Colts

The Colts have a dominant offensive line and a swarming young defense. Those are two things you need to win on the road in the playoffs. The third thing you need to win in the playoffs? That is a big-time Quarterback and the Colts have just that in Andrew Luck. The Colts are the type of team that can win a low scoring game, plus they have the QB and weapons to win a shoot out. The Colts will be a Super Bowl contender for the next 5 years as long as the front office doesn’t screw it up.

4) Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott is underrated. Sure, he can’t throw a receiver open but he is tough and has the ability to will his team to win. Add in Ezekiel Elliot running the rock and you have a team that if they don’t turn the ball over can beat just about anybody. They have a strong and dominant defense and while I still question the coaching, this is close to a complete team.

5) Kansas City Chiefs

The question here is can Andy Reid get over the hump? Mahomes has had an amazing first year as a starter and they have weapons all over the place, but the defense can be run on and that can be a tough obstacle to overcome at playoff time.

6) New England Patriots

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are the reasons you cannot count this Patriots team out, ever! But the lack of defense and a Gronkowski that seems old makes it hard to see this version of the Patriots winning it all.

7) Philadelphia Eagles

Nick Foles is the Mr. January of the NFL and all he has done the last two years is win. I think that ends in New Orleans this weekend. I doubt the secondary and running game, and if those are two of your biggest issues during the playoffs, you will not last very long in those playoffs.

8) Los Angeles Rams

The Rams have next to no depth which also means Special Teams could be an issue playoff time. If Todd Gurley is healthy they can be a dangerous opponent for anybody they play. In the end, the limitations of Jared Goff will sink this ship and a defense that has not performed up to there potential.
