Herd Hierarchy: Colin Cowherd Ranks the NFL's Top 10 Teams After Week 13

Watch Colin Cowherd release his Week 13 NFL ‘Herd Hierarchy’, with Colin counting down his rankings of the top 10 teams heading into Week 14.

10. Green Bay Packers (6-6, Last Week: Unranked): “They've won four of five and I don't think it's a fluke. This is the best their defense has played in several years. They're 16-0 in December under Matt LaFleur. Three straight games without a turnover."
9. Buffalo Bills (6-6, Last Week: 9): "A three-point road loss to the Eagles is not the end of the world. They rank five in point differential, Josh Allen is an insane all-time talent, and it's the best third-down offense in the league. They just can't quite get the details right."
8. Houston Texans (7-5, Last Week: Unranked): “They're not a great team, but a highly-functioning, well-coached team with a star rookie quarterback. This is not a fluke, Denver was on a roll and STRUGGLED to move the ball, and Russell Wilson had his first bad game in several weeks."
7. Miami Dolphins (9-3, Last Week: 8): “I worry about Miami, they've only got one way to play. They're 1-3 against teams .500 or better, but they're the number one passing offense, the number two rushing offense, and they're number one in the red zone. Mike McDaniel is an Ivy League version of Kyle Shanahan."
6. Detroit Lions (9-3, Last Week: 7): "They have an o-line, a running game, 14-4 over the last 18 regular season games. They got whacked by Green Bay but maybe Green Bay is better than we think. I don't think you can solve their defensive problems, but they can also beat virtually anyone in the NFC with their ball control."
5. Kansas City Chiefs (8-4, Last Week: 3): “They've got key injuries on defense and the offensive line but they're going to get healthier. They've lost three of five games, they don't give you 400 yards of offense, and they're still trying to re-work their wide receiving corps. They're going to be fine and get to the AFC Championship."
4. Baltimore Ravens (9-3, Last Week: 4): "Number one rush offense, number one scoring defense, and Lamar has gone back-to-back games without a turnover. They can get a little sloppy in the fourth quarter and I don't trust them against the best teams late. They've been very fortunate where they've gotten some of the tougher games at home."
3. Philadelphia Eagles (10-2, Last Week: 1): "Let's not sell the farm on Philadelphia. They had played Dallas, Kansas City, Buffalo, and San Francisco in four straight weeks, they looked TIRED. I think they're going to bounce back and play a really good game against Dallas."
2. Dallas Cowboys (9-3, Last Week: 5): "No wins over any teams currently with a winning record, but they're not giving the ball up and they only have ten giveaways. I think at times they can be a bit CeeDee Lamb reliant, but Ferguson matters more now, Cooks matters now, Pollard is getting into the end zone, and Tyrone Smith is healthy. I don't know if I can trust them in January in a big spot.
1. San Francisco 49ers (9-3, Last Week: 2) "They destroyed Dallas and Philadelphia, destroyed Jacksonville, destroyed the Steelers... Right now, this is the best team in the league."
