NFL Power Rankings, Week 12: CBS Puts Steelers At No. 5

Time for more NFL Power Rankings, because it’s Tuesday, and that’s the day a bunch of random guys decide to spend 30 seconds putting all the NFL teams in order, and we know y’all can’t get enough of that. Sometimes these guys even look at teams’ upcoming schedules, which in the power-rankings biz is what we call “research.” It’s awesome! Anyway, Pete Prisco of CBS, come on down! Prisco has the Steelers at No. 5.

They come off their bye tied with the Ravens for first in the AFC North. Getting players back healthy for the stretch run will be key.

How’s that for insight, folks? My world has been changed, thanks to Pete Prisco of CBS looking at the standings for me. Research, people.

... And I'm sorry, Mr. Prisco. I don't mean to pick on you in particular. Your power rankings are really no better or worse than anyone else's, and we're all trying to pay the bills here.

The Packers, 49ers, Texans and Ravens are the four teams ahead of the Steelers. The Bengals are at No. 14, the Browns at No. 24.

SB Nation has a blog for every team.
