There’s a gap between the top-four teams in our NFL power rankings and the rest of the league.
With two weeks to go until the playoffs, Seattle, Green Bay, New England, and Denver are clear-cut Super Bowl contenders.
On the other end of the rankings, the NFC South continues to sputter.
Week 15 result: 17-7 win over San Francisco
One thing to know: The defence has been off the charts since Bobby Wagner returned. They're giving up 6.8 points per game in the last month.
Week 15 result: 21-13 loss to Buffalo
One thing to know: The Packers are 3-4 on the road, with their only wins coming at Chicago, Minnesota, and Miami (where they needed a last-second miracle to win).
Week 15 result: 22-10 win over San Diego
One thing to know: Peyton Manning's perplexing December continued in Week 15. He got sick, got hurt and missed a few snaps for the first time all year.
Week 15 result: 12-6 win over St. Louis
One thing to know: They're down to their third-string quarterback. It's hard to see them making much noise in the playoffs with that QB situation.
Week 15 result: 20-12 win over Jacksonville
One thing to know: The secondary is a total mess. After Terrence Brooks hurt his knee in Week 15, they now have three defensive backs out for the year.
Week 15 result: 38-27 win over Philadelphia
One thing to know: DeMarco Murray has an obscene number of carries this year. A hand injury could keep him out of Week 16's huge game against the Colts.
Week 15 result: 17-10 win over Houston
One thing to know: They have got the division locked up, but they're coming off two-straight uninspiring wins over Cleveland and Houston.
Week 15 result: 21-13 win over Green Bay
One thing to know: Their defence is right up there with Detroit's and Seattle's right now. They held Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers to season-worst passer ratings in back-to-back games.
Week 15 result: 31-13 win over Oakland
One thing to know: With games against Pittsburgh and San Diego to close out the season, they have the toughest schedule of any AFC wild card contender.
Week 15 result: 17-7 loss to Seattle
One thing to know: The 49ers-Seahawks rivalry is over. It was a good run.
Week 15 result: 31-15 win over Chicago
One thing to know: They're the only NFC South team that can possibly finish with a .500 record.
Week 15 result: 19-17 win over Tampa Bay
One thing to know: Cam Newton's status for Week 16 is uncertain after he was injured in a car accident last week.
Week 15 result: 27-20 loss to Pittsburgh
One thing to know: The Falcons went 1-9 against teams that aren't in the NFC South this year. And they still might make the playoffs.
Week 15 result: 19-17 loss to Carolina
One thing to know: The Bucs lost three games by less than a field goal and two other games in overtime this year. That's a misleading 2-12.
Week 15 result: 16-11 win over Tennessee
One thing to know: Their Week 15 win was costly. They're probably out on the Marcus Mariota sweepstakes now.
