AFC Power Rankings Week 17: Steelers fall, Pats stay at No. 1

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The 16th Sunday of the 2015 NFL season has come and gone, which means it’s time for another edition of Musket FIre’s AFC power rankings. Because this is a New England Patriots-focused site, we like to focus on just the AFC each Monday morning. Enjoy:

35. <p>Taking up the rear of not just the AFC, but the entire NFL are the Titans, who suffered their sixth loss in seven weeks on Sunday. Antonio Andrews was the poster boy of the Titans’ struggles, committing a terrible fumble and later allowing Earl Pleasant to rip the ball away from him, which counted officially as an interception. Harry Douglas and Zach Mettenberger also fumbled the ball, giving the Titans four turnovers on the day.</p> <p>When the Titans weren’t giving the ball away in Week 16, they were punting it. They ended the first half with six consecutive punts. The problems with this team are systemic and deeply rooted, especially on offense when Marcus Mariota isn’t in the lineup.</p> <p>The Titans play the Colts on the road to close out the season. A victory would double their win total from the 2014 season.</p>. AFC South. 3-12. Tennessee Titans. 16. player

Next: 15. Cleveland Browns
