Herd Hierarchy: Colin Cowherd Ranks the NFL's Top 10 Teams After Week 15

Watch Colin Cowherd release his Week 15 NFL ‘Herd Hierarchy’, with Colin counting down his rankings of the top 10 teams heading into Week 16.

10. Cleveland Browns (9-5, Last Week: 7): "They have the most giveaways in the NFL with 30. They've have four different quarterbacks with a game-winning drive. I would not want to play them in the first round. Excellent defense, excellent at home, great pass rusher... Just had their third win when trailing by 10+ points. Weirdest team in the league, I think they can win a playoff game."
9. Philadelphia Eagles (10-4, Last Week: 6): "I've probably got them too low but they're on a three-game losing streak and I don't think they have their offense figured out. They're 7-3 against teams with winning records, but they're averaging 16 points in the last three games. They have to figure out the offense, it's not a personnel issue."
8. Los Angeles Rams (7-7, Last Week: 8): “The Eagles beat the Rams earlier this season but I don't think they would beat them next week. The Rams are on fire, in the last month Matt Stafford has 12 TDs and a pick. Cooper Kupp -- unguardable. Puka Nacua -- matchup problems. Kyren Williams has five-straight games over 100 yards. Sean McVay is having his best year."
7. Miami Dolphins (10-4, Last Week: 9): “They're 0-3 against teams with winning records but to be able to drop a 30-0 without Tyreek Hill shows you the depth of their talent. Raheem Mostert has 20 total touchdowns, the most in the NFL. Tua leads the NFL in passing yards. They're a little like the Niners without the physicality."
6. Detroit Lions (10-4, Last Week: 10): "I like their physicality up front with their offensive line. They're probably not a team I would trust going on the road in the playoffs, but if they win their division they get a home game. They're 9-1 this year when they can hold teams to 28 or fewer. Four straight games of rushing for over 140 yards."
5. Dallas Cowboys (10-4, Last Week: 2): “They had a bad Sunday but there's a lot of things to like here. 7-0 at home, seven blowouts, their kicker hasn't missed a kick. Do they play well on the road? No, they don't, but the truth is -- Dak home and road is two different quarterbacks. I'm not picking them to win the Super Bowl but I do think they'll bounce back and beat Miami."
4. Kansas City Chiefs (9-5, Last Week: 4): "Kansas City is going to be fine. They're going to end up in the AFC Championship but they DO have an issue... They have an unsettled wide receiver room. Toney, Mahomes doesn't trust. Kelce, always looked banged up. Their tackles, not great. They're 7-0 when they score 21 or more, but the problem is they have struggled to score 21 and more consistently. This is not a great team."
3. Buffalo Bills (8-6, Last Week: 5): "I think they found their secret sauce a couple of weeks ago. We saw Tampa catch fire after a bye [in 2020], this team is now running the football. James Cook has had 100-plus yards in five straight games. They remind me of those Big Ben-Steelers teams when they had a run game, a great defense, would create turnovers, and wouldn't turn it over. Josh Allen didn't turn it over, ran the football, didn't have to throw, and decimated Dallas. Schedule has three wins on it to close the season."
2. Baltimore Ravens (11-3, Last Week: 3) "I've liked them all year. They're the only team in the league to hold a lead in every game during the fourth quarter. Number one scoring defense, Lamar Jackson remains better in the pocket than anyone wants to admit. Losing Mitchell the running back hurts, he was a dynamic spark plug to this offense."
1. San Francisco 49ers (11-3, Last Week: 1) "The Niners are 18-0, including the playoffs, when Brock Purdy, McCaffrey, and Deebo are healthy. They're averaging almost 7 yards a play. It's the third-highest of any team in the Super Bowl era. It is a completely stacked roster with no weaknesses. It's almost impossible to create a roster this deep and this good in 2023."
