The 2021 NFL season is drawing near to a close and the biggest holiday of the year is finally here. Merry Christmas, Dallas Cowboys fans! Your Cowboys have officially earned a playoff berth, which is a wonderful gift in itself.
Today, I be unveiling my third and final holiday power rankings. If you missed either of the other two previous editions, you can catch up by reading the Halloween and Thanksgiving articles by clicking on the links.
Aside from the early Christmas gift provided to Dallas by San Francisco losing, we also learned earlier this week that five Cowboys were named to the Pro Bowl. Offensive linemen Zack Martin and Tyron Smith will join linebacker Micah Parsons, cornerback Trevon Diggs and punter Bryan Anger on the NFC Pro Bowl roster. Defensive end Randy Gregory was also named as an alternate, meaning a sixth Cowboy could make the team.
As if all this good news was not enough, Dallas will head into Sunday Night Football on NBC with a chance to clinch the NFC East and hold on to their current No. 2 seed in the NFC playoff picture. While the Cowboys can clinch before the game even starts, they will definitely want to continue the three-game winning streak they are on and enter the cold month of January hot.
As for the rest of the league, where do the rest of the 31 teams stand? Well, what better way to find out than some arbitrary power rankings!
So, without any further ado, as you come down from your high of opening presents and knocking back egg nog, let’s see how the league is stacking up during this festive time.
