NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507028 Denver Broncos Denver+Broncos NFL

The Broncos' 11th straight win moved them into the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs. They have won each of those 11 games by at least seven points and are the hottest team heading into the postseason.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507025 New England Patriots New+England+Patriots NFL

With the win and Sunday's Texans loss, the Patriots jumped into the No. 2 seed for a first-round bye. New England's 28-0 win over the Dolphins on Sunday was the Patriots' first shutout since 2009.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31508330 Green Bay Packers Green+Bay+Packers NFL

Saturday's NFC wild-card game will be the third time the Packers play the Vikings in six weeks. Green Bay will do some serious self-scouting and make the necessary adjustments to stop Adrian Peterson.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507027 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta+Falcons NFL

The Falcons have a first-round bye, and the road to the Super Bowl in the NFC goes through Atlanta. But after starting the season 11-1, the Falcons are just 2-2 in their past four games.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507026 San Francisco 49ers San+Francisco+49ers NFL

The 49ers have won back-to-back NFC West titles for the first time since doing so in every season from 1992 to '95. Sunday's loss by the Packers also gave them their second straight first-round bye for the postseason.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31508331 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore+Ravens NFL

The Ravens sat the majority of their starters on Sunday and lost for the fourth time in the past five weeks. However, the Ravens are in the postseason for the fifth straight year, making the playoffs every season under Coach John Harbaugh, and should be tough enough at home to beat the Colts.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507031 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati+Bengals+ NFL

The Bengals have won seven of their past eight and their defense is allowing just 12.8 points per game during that span, best in the NFL. The Bengals hit the playoffs with a ton of confidence and will play a Texans team that may be lacking it.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507029 Washington Redskins Washington+Redskins NFL

Behind RG3, the Redskins won their first NFC East title since 1999 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2007. I like them to beat Seattle in the wild-card round, but don’t think they have the defensive strength to go any further.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507032 Seattle Seahawks Seattle+Seahawks NFL

Pete Carroll gets my vote for Coach of the Year, but I think the Seahawks go one and done in the playoffs. Washington is a tough place to play, especially for a team that has had struggled on the road.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507030 Houston Texans Houston+Texans NFL

The Texans lost at Indianapolis for the third straight time Sunday and led for a total of 12 seconds. The Texans enter the postseason having won only one game out of the past four.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507034 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis+Colts NFL

The Andrew Luck/Peyton Manning comparisons continue to be eerily similar. Reggie Wayne (pictured, right, with Luck) finished with 1,355 receiving yards on the season, the same exact total he had in 2010, his last season with Manning. But I think the luck runs out on Sunday.

NFL 5 43 Power Rankings: Brian Billick ranks NFL playoff teams 31507035 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota+Vikings NFL

The Vikings have won their past four games and quarterback Christian Ponder is playing his best football of the season. Still, I think they are the worst team in the playoffs and will get exposed by the Packers at Lambeau Field — even with Adrian Peterson (pictured).
