Our final NFL power rankings of the season look remarkably familiar.
The Seattle Seahawks are on top, like they have been for most the year, with a few perennial contenders lurking.
On the other end of things, some once-promising 2014 teams (Titans, Bears, Falcons) ended up in the NFL’s bottom tier.
Week 17 result: 20-6 win over St. Louis
One thing to know: This is the clear favourite to win the Super Bowl. They're 17-2 at home in the last two seasons, and they have homefield advantage throughout the playoffs.
Week 17 result: 30-20 win over Detroit
One thing to know: In all likelihood they will have to beat Seattle on the road to make the Super Bowl. They were just 4-4 on the road this year.
Week 17 result: 47-14 win over Oakland
One thing to know: Peyton Manning had three touchdowns and six interceptions in December.
Week 17 result: 30-20 loss to Green Bay
One thing to know: The Ndamukong Suh suspension is massive. With Nick Fairley also out, he was Detroit's best hope for disrupting Dallas' league-best running game.
Week 17 result: 27-17 loss to Pittsburgh
One thing to know: Poor big-game performances have always plagued Andy Dalton. A win against Indianapolis would give him a much better chance of fulfilling that massive contract.
Week 17 result: 27-10 win over Tennessee
One thing to know: It's a hard team to figure out. The Colts clinched a playoff spot so early that Andrew Luck basically shut it down after Week 15.
Week 17 result: 20-10 win over Cleveland
One thing to know: Haloti Ngata is back from a four-game PED suspension. But the secondary, which has been ravaged by injuries this season, is the real worry.
Week 17 result: 19-7 win over San Diego
One thing to know: Their wide receivers didn't catch a touchdown pass all year. That's the best NFL stat of 2014.
Week 17 result: 19-7 loss to Kansas City
One thing to know: Losing to Chase Daniel is a rough way to miss out on the playoffs.
Week 17 result: 23-17 win over Jacksonville
One thing to know: J.J. Watt is going to come as close as a defensive player from a non-playoff team can come to winning the MVP.
Week 17 result: 20-6 loss to Seattle
One thing to know: A lot of people had this as a sleeper team before the season. The defence came alive in December, but the quarterback position is still a huge question mark.
Week 17 result: 34-3 loss to Carolina
One thing to know: Coach Mike Smith is out after two-straight disastrous seasons.
Week 17 result: 37-24 win over Miami
One thing to know: Rex Ryan is out. The Jets have all sorts of cap room, but not much else.
Week 17 result: 23-20 loss to New Orleans
One thing to know: They lost four games by a field goal or less this year.
Week 17 result: 13-9 loss to Minnesota
One thing to know: Less than a year after giving Jay Cutler a huge contract, GM Phil Emery is out.
Week 17 result: 27-10 loss to Indianapolis
One thing to know: The worst part: They're probably going to miss out on Marcus Mariota because they got the No. 2 pick instead of the No. 1 pick.
