A typical impressive home victory in December keeps the Pats at the top of the rankings. The Vikings stay at number two and are followed by a cluster of five closely ranked teams.

Traditional powerhouses Denver and Seattle drop out of the top 10. Can they return to form to challenge for SB LI? As the final weeks unfold, these interesting questions will find their answers.
