Despite strong performances recently, the Washington Redskins remain near the bottom in this week's NFL Power Rankings.
As well as the Washington Redskins have played recently, they still are near the bottom in our Week 16 NFL Power Rankings. This isn't their fault, really. It's just that there's a large batch of teams in the middle, especially after a weekend where many underdogs took out top squads. The Redskins end up checking in at No. 25 in this week's SB Nation D.C. NFL Power Rankings.
Elsewhere, the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts maintained their spots at the top and bottom, respectively, despite their chases for history ending. There was also a bit of separation at the top, followed by a jumbled mess of teams still vying for the postseason.
