What goes into an NFL power ranking? Teams move up and down based on several factors, including win/loss records from week to week (and the margin of win/loss) and whether a team covers a point spread. If a team's ranked high and suffers a huge loss, their power ranking can plummet. One thing is absolutely certain in the NFL: Nothing is ever predictable!
