Three NFC teams claim the top three spots in the NFL power rankings going into Week 14.

The Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings sit on the top of the league with five games left in the regular season. Philadelphia holds the top spot in the NFC East with the Cowboys hanging on to a wild-card spot in the tough NFC East. Philadelphia can clinch a playoff berth with win or tie or a San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks loss.

The Vikings barely got past the New York Jets on Sunday and were lucky enough to avoid a Mike White-led comeback. Now, they have to turn their attention to an NFC North rival. Minnesota can clinch the NFC North title with a win or tie.

The Kansas City Chiefs could also clinch an AFC West division title with a win and a Los Angeles Chargers loss in Week 14.
