NFL Power Rankings Week 12: Patriots No. 1 Team In SB Nation Rankings

On the strength of back-to-back wins over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts, the New England Patriots remain the No. 1 team in the SB Nation Power Rankings for Week 12. It's the second week in a row the Pats have been ranked on top. 

They're followed by the Packers at No. 2 (the Patriots' Week 15 opponent), the Falcons, the Jets (whom they meet in Week 13) and the Eagles. 

Our No. 1 team has scored 70 points in the last two games, which is the second time this year they've scored 70 points or more over two games. They'll be tested this year as they still host the Jets and Packers down the stretch.

The Detroit Lions, New England's opponent on Thanksgiving, are holding steady at No. 30.
