Week:

The Cardinals wrestled the top spot from the Panthers a week ago. Now the roles are reversed, as Carolina is back at No. 1, just in time to claim our regular-season "title" for 2015.

After being blown out at home by Seattle, Arizona slipped to No. 4. The Seahawks were rewarded, rising from No. 10 to No. 3 -- the biggest move of the week. The Broncos, who edged the Patriots and Bengals for the AFC's No. 1 seed, jumped from No. 4 to No. 2.

With Week 17 in the books, the attention now turns to the playoffs. Of the eight teams playing on wild-card weekend, six reside in our top 10. Only the Redskins (No. 11) and Texans (No. 13) are on the outside looking in.

The Jets finished the season on a sour note, but they're the best of the non-playoff teams at No. 12.
