NFL Week 12 Power Rankings Feature Michael Vick, Eagles Taking NFC East Lead

NFL Week 12 Power Rankings Feature Michael Vick, Eagles Taking NFC East Lead A lot happened in the NFL this past weekend. But as far as power rankings are concerned, nothing much has changed.

Mark Sanchez‘s fade throw to Santonio Holmes kept the Jets at No. 1, Tom Brady staved off Peyton Manning to keep the Patriots in the two-slot (and the Colts at No. 9) and Michael Vick continued his unbeaten streak by leading his Eagles (still at No. 8) to a win over division rival Eli Manning and the Giants (who stay at No. 10).

In fact, the entire top-10 has stayed the same because, quite frankly, all 10 teams played as they were supposed to on Sunday.

But that doesn’t mean it wasn’t fun to watch.
