Just like that, there are five teams tied for the best record in the NFL, with every team in the league now having at least two losses.
The top spot remains unchanged, however, in The Post’s weekly NFL Power Rankings after Lamar Jackson and the Ravens edged the second-ranked 49ers in a potential Super Bowl preview.
The composition of the Top 10 mostly remains unchanged aside from Seattle jumping the shaky Patriots into the Top 3 after holding on for another quality win Monday night against the Vikings, who slipped one spot behind NFC North rival Green Bay.
Surprisingly surging wild-card contenders Tennessee and Pittsburgh have positioned themselves just outside the Top 10, still needing someone above them to falter to enter that prestigious grouping.
1. Baltimore Ravens, 10-2 (Last week: 1): The rolling Ravens proved they could grind out a smash-mouth style game against the top-rated defensive team in the league, using Jackson’s legs (101 rushing yards) and ever-reliable kicker Justin Tucker’s last-second field goal to take down the stingy Niners for their eighth straight win. John Harbaugh’s team now is in control for home-field advantage in the AFC entering this week’s game against dangerous Buffalo.
2. San Francisco 49ers, 10-2 (2): A daunting three-week stretch for Jimmy Garoppolo and the Niners — also featuring a rout of Green Bay and the heartbreaker against the Ravens — concludes with another stern road test against the Saints on Sunday, with the season finale in Seattle looming to likely decide the NFC West.
3. Seattle Seahawks, 10-2 (4): The Seahawks actually are in first place in that division after holding on to down the Vikings on Monday night, owning the tiebreaker since they defeated San Francisco in Week 10. It’s a shame either Jackson or Russell Wilson will be no better than the runner-up in the MVP race, but Wilson can’t afford to slip up this week versus the Rams, who finally seemed to right themselves Sunday against Arizona.
4. New England Patriots, 10-2 (3): Tom Brady and the struggling Patriots offense has been underwhelming for a few weeks, but Bill Belichick’s stifling defense also finally relented Sunday night against Houston, allowing three touchdown passes after giving up just four over the first 11 weeks. The 42-year-old Brady doesn’t appear to fully trust any offensive skill players on the team anymore other than Julian Edelman.
5. New Orleans Saints, 10-2 (5): The Saints grabbed a measure of revenge on Thanksgiving in Atlanta after the flailing Falcons had shocked them at the Superdome two weeks earlier. Now that the NFC South title is sewn up, Drew Brees can concentrate on securing home field and getting Michael Thomas (110 catches) the NFL record for receptions (143, Marvin Harrison, 2002). But the 49ers, this week’s opponent, have allowed an NFL-low 134.2 passing yards per game.
6. Green Bay Packers, 9-3 (7): The Giants’ sieve defense is the perfect tonic for any quarterback coming off a terrible performance, as Aaron Rodgers was after getting shoved around by San Francisco the previous week. The Packers get the Redskins and the Bears at home the next two weeks before the divisional showdown in Minnesota on “Monday Night Football” on Christmas Eve-Eve.
7. Minnesota Vikings, 8-4 (6): The Vikings slipped off the pace behind the Pack in the NFC North — and likely lost running back Dalvin Cook to injury — with Monday’s loss to Seattle. They still are in good shape for at least the second wild-card spot in the NFC with games against sub-.500 teams Detroit and the Chargers the next two weeks before getting another crack at Green Bay in Week 16.
8. Kansas City Chiefs, 8-4 (8): The Chiefs squelched any talk of the Raiders catching them in the AFC West, opening up a two-game cushion with a 40-9 pummeling for Oakland’s second consecutive hideous performance. (See also: Jets). A Week 12 bye and the Raiders’ defense helped Patrick Mahomes and top target Tyreek Hill get healthier and tuned up ahead of this week’s game at New England.
9. Buffalo Bills, 9-3 (9): Josh Allen continues to do more than enough to win most weeks, backed by an improved defense that ranks third in the NFL in yards and points allowed per game behind only San Francisco and New England. Another Pats loss to K.C. this week would give Buffalo a chance to move into an improbable tie for first place in the AFC East — or at least remain within one game of the top — since the Bills face Baltimore at home Sunday.
10. Houston Texans, 8-4 (10): Deshaun Watson scorched New England’s defense for three touchdown passes and one trick-play TD reception as Houston posted an important statement win Sunday night, especially with surging Tennessee on their heels in the AFC South. The Titans found some magic of their own with five wins in six games since Ryan Tannehill took over for Marcus Mariota at quarterback. The Texans face Denver on Sunday before a key visit to Tennessee the following week.
11. Tennessee Titans, 7-5 (11)
12. Pittsburgh Steelers, 7-5 (15)
13. Los Angeles Rams, 7-5 (14)
14. Dallas Cowboys, 6-6 (12)
15. Indianapolis Colts, 6-6 (13)
16. Oakland Raiders, 6-6 (16)
17. Chicago Bears, 6-6 (20)
18. Cleveland Browns, 5-7 (17)
19. Philadelphia Eagles, 5-7 (18)
20. Carolina Panthers, 5-7 (19)
21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-7 (23)
22. Jacksonville Jaguars, 4-8 (21)
23. Denver Broncos, 4-8 (28)
24. Los Angeles Chargers, 4-8 (22)
25. Jets, 4-8 (24): The easy joke all week was that a “So Jets” moment was coming against previously winless Cincinnati after the previous week’s rout of Oakland. But wow, that was an awful look for Adam Gase’s team on both sides of the ball.
26. Detroit Lions, 3-8-1 (25)
27. Arizona Cardinals, 3-8-1 (27)
28. Atlanta Falcons, 3-9 (26)
29. Miami Dolphins, 3-9 (30)
30. Washington Redskins, 3-9 (31)
31. Giants, 2-10 (29): With a little help from the Jets, the Giants suddenly have a crack at the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, although hot-seated Pat Shurmur’s squad still has winnable games on the schedule against the two teams immediately above them in these rankings in Miami and Washington following this week’s game against fading NFC East foe Philadelphia.
32. Cincinnati Bengals, 1-11 (32)
