The Dallas Cowboys ended their losing streak and the Baltimore Ravens lost in the final seconds. See what these games and more do to our 2021 NFL Power Rankings at Week 14
After suffering a loss on Thanksgiving Day, the Dallas Cowboys were in the midst of a two-game losing streak. In Week 13, they were able to snap that streak as they beat up on Taysom Hill and the short-handed New Orleans Saints.
While they were ending a rough couple of weeks with a solid win, the Baltimore Ravens found themselves suffering a last-second loss as they went for two instead of taking the tie against the Steelers.
Those games, and many others over this weekend, shook things up a bit in our 2021 NFL Power Rankings.
Detroit gets a win, but is stuck at No. 32 in the 2021 NFL Power Rankings
Somehow, someway, they finally did it. Almost exactly one year to the day from their last win in the NFL, the Detroit Lions pulled off an upset as they beat the Minnesota Vikings 29-27 in Week 13.
The 1-10-1 Lions scored 20 points in the second quarter as they were in full control at the half. However, that 20-6 lead wasn’t enough for them to walk away with the win as the Vikings kept fighting back and took a lead late when Kirk Cousins hit Justin Jefferson for a touchdown.
That gave them a 27-23 lead but the Lions were able to go 75-yards on 14 plays before Jared Goff his Amon-Ra St. Brown for a game-winning 11-yard touchdown. It was a lot of fun for them and their fans — and it didn’t cost them their hold on the No. 1 overall pick either which is another win.
Once again, things didn’t go as planned for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They headed out to Southern California to take on the Los Angeles Rams and it wasn’t long until we saw this one was over.
Jacksonville gave up 65-yards on the opening kick return and they never really slowed the Rams down from there. In the end, it was a 37-7 loss and there was nothing good to take from it.
Trevor Lawrence had just 145 yards and no touchdown passes. Their top runners were James Robinson and Carlos Hyde who each had 24 yards. Defensively, they allowed Matt Stafford to carve them up and Sony Michel had 121 yards and a touchdown.
The only thing Jacksonville really can play for now is the No. 1 pick, and they might have a shot because that requires them doing the one thing they’ve figured out under Urban Meyer — losing.
