NFL Power Rankings Week 16: Packers remain No.1 team, Dolphins on the rise after sixth straight win

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Baltimore Ravens Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season is finally complete, and your Miami Dolphins have officially battled their way back to a .500 record, setting up a meaningful Monday Night game in the Bayou.

We will have plenty on the site previewing Monday's game vs. the Saints, but first, let's look at this week's power rankings. As you can probably expect, the Packers and Aaron Rodgers have cemented themselves into the top spot for the second straight week. But what about the rest of the league?

Our power rankings on The Phinsider are compiled through a draft-style process. Josh Houtz and Kevin Nogle alternate picks, selecting the team they believe best answers the questions, “Who can win the Super Bowl?”

With Kevin currently at the movie theater watching SpiderMan: No Way Home, (NO SPOILERS), I will be going Hans Solo this week.
