NFL Power Rankings, Week 17: Steelers back in top 10, Patriots hit new low – NFL.com

Previous rank: No. 15

It is Ron Rivera’s show in Washington. We’ve known that for some time, but Rivera’s clout in the organization has never been more apparent following the release of quarterback Dwayne Haskins, the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Dumping a first-round pick after less than two seasons is almost unheard of, but Rivera wasn’t in the building when Haskins was drafted, and Haskins didn’t do near enough to engender faith or patience from Rivera in their limited time together. Remarkably, this drama all plays out while Washington preps for a Week 17 matchup against the Eagles that could decide the NFC East in their favor. No matter what happens on Sunday night, Rivera will be leading the search for a new quarterback this offseason.
