NFL Power Rankings: Week 18

30. Houston Texans (4-12)

Week 17 Result: Lost to San Francisco 23-7

We can cool off on the Davis Mills hype…for now. The first-year QB struggled mightily against the 49ers, throwing for just 163 yards on 32 pass attempts. Houston’s offensive line did the rookie no favors, as the dominant San Francisco defensive front was able to generate significant pressure in the second half. After jumping out to a 7-0 lead in the first quarter, the Texans surrendered 23-straight to fall to 4-12 on the year.

29. New York Jets (4-12)

Week 17 Result: Lost to Tampa Bay 28-24

Even after leaving the AFC East, Tom Brady found a way to drill one more dagger in the heart of his former division rival. New York held a lead for nearly the entire game. Following a touchdown by Jets RB Ty Johnson, the Bucs faced a 24-10 hole versus a club with just four wins on the year. And then, Brady took over. With 15 seconds remaining, the 44-year-old delivered a perfect dart to WR Cyril Grayson for a 33-yard touchdown connection. You can’t make this stuff up. It’s as if Brady is destined to break the hearts of the Jets for the rest of time.
