New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers are headed to the postseason, and we recap the most recent, and final, Power Rankings of the 2017 NFL regular season.

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Houston Texans Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The 2017 NFL regular season is over, which means the last of the weekly NFL Power Rankings. Well, until there are pre-draft Power Rankings, and post-draft Power Rankings, and pre-free agency Power Rankings...you get the drift.

Despite the meaningless nature of Power Rankings, it is always good to spark some debate as to where your favorite team, in this instance the Pittsburgh Steelers, rank among their peers in the AFC and NFL.

Take a look at some of the final Power Rankings released to cap off the 2017 season, and while some now prepare for the NFL Draft, other teams are preparing for bigger, and better things.
