Before Sunday, there were two one-loss teams in the NFL , and all seemed pretty safe with the order of power . Then, the Ravens beat the formerly 10-1 49ers in a nail-biter in Baltimore, and the Texans slammed the Patriots on Sunday night, and everything changed. With their win, the Ravens, who haven’t lost since Week 4 against the Browns, became the AFC’s top seed. And with the New England loss, the Patriots moved to second, with the Texans right behind them. The Chiefs, Bills and Steelers now round out the AFC playoff picture, with the red-hot Titans on the outside looking in.

Finally, the NFL Power Rankings don't have to deal with any more byes, as every team has had its scheduled bye week . That makes this the perfect time to figure out which NFL players and coaches have the most at stake during the season's final month. From players who are trying to stake a long-term Despite winning the Super Bowl last season, Reid isn't yet guaranteed to be an eventual Hall of Fame selection. Winning back-to-back championships would appear to be enough to put Reid over the top . Of the six coaches who have done it, four are in the Hall, and one who isn't, Bill Belichick, is a

Cyber Monday is in the rear-view mirror, but it's still possible to score a great holi-deal. All through the weekend there were big savings across the entire range of headphone styles from earbuds to noise-canceling headphones, and each of the biggest brands saw deep discounts including Jabra, JBL, Sony and Apple . They haven't finished yet -- if you've been considering buying a pair Beats, Airpods or Samsung Galaxy Buds, you still have time to save.

Welcome to the Official /r/ NFL Week 14 Power Rankings . With three weeks left to change our minds, to climb the ranks or fall behind, a familiar face sits on top , while other old hands continue to drop. Some divisions are locked in tight races, with no one sure of their final places. Every complicated scenario in the book is in play for Detroit the rest of the way, including being one of only 4 teams still in play for the #1 seed. Lions fans are optimistic, but they know all too well that things can turn ugly in a heartbeat if the Lions don't win at least one of their next 2 games.

Heading into Week 14 , the playoff race is heating up. As things stand, five teams are tied atop the NFL with a 10-2 record, with a mess of teams just behind them ready to leap into the top tier. Check out where all 32 teams stand below. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Below them is a hodgepodge of teams that could either fall of the grid or make a run at the top of their conference through their final four games. With so little football left to be played, the race for the postseason will only continue to heat up. Check out where all 32 teams stand in our power rankings below.

We've collected some of our favorite offers in our list below and we'll keep it up to date with the remaining deals while stocks are still available.

Anker's new Liberty 2 Pro normally retails for $150 but is on sale for $40 off at Amazon. It's one of the best values in true wireless earbuds, with very good sound and features (it has both USB-C and wireless charging). It also works very well as a headset for making calls. At this price, it's a real bargain.

Opinion: Cowboys QB Dak Prescott can state his case for new contract vs. Patriots

  Opinion: Cowboys QB Dak Prescott can state his case for new contract vs. Patriots Looking at Week 12, Jarrett Bell says it's time for the Cowboys to pay Dak Prescott and the Lions face the Redskins in the worst game of the week.Who’s hot: Dak Prescott. Now this is how you state your case for a big new contract. Prescott is carrying the NFL’s No. 1-ranked offense into New England with his arm, leading the league with 3,221 passing yards and tied for second with 21 TD throws. Prescott’s steady rise is what every team would hope for in developing a young quarterback – and it has helped that he’s been provided weapons such as Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb to complement the threat of Ezekiel Elliott.

NFL POWER RANKINGS : Where all 32 teams stand going into Week 14 . As the 2017 NFL season enters its final four weeks, a clear hierarchy is taking place at the top of the field, while other teams scramble to secure a postseason bid after struggling to start the season. Last week we saw the Philadelphia Eagles lose for the first time since Week 2, which bumped them from the top of our Power Rankings this week, leading to a familiar face taking the number one spot.

If Week 14 taught the pro football world anything, it's that the AFC superpowers are more than vulnerable. The Patriots fell to the mediocre Dolphins in Miami, while the Ravens had the Chiefs on the ropes late in the fourth quarter -- at Arrowhead, no less. The disappointing aspects of the Texans' loss were twofold Though the AFC East matchup garnered less attention than games with playoff stakes, the Bills faltering at home versus the Jets rates as one of the surprises of the week. After essentially destroying the Jags' postseason hopes, then coming a Charles Clay non-dive away from defeating the

Amazon has the Galaxy Buds on sale for $100. We've seen them at that price before, but it's about as low as the get. Although they're not great for making calls, they're a decent set of true wireless earbuds that are a good AirPods alternative, particularly for Galaxy smartphone owners (and Android users).

Opinion: Big 12 gets major College Football Playoff boost in latest rankings

  Opinion: Big 12 gets major College Football Playoff boost in latest rankings With two weeks left in the season, the Big 12 got a boost to its College Football Playoff outlook with Baylor and Oklahoma's rise in the rankings.

Here are the power rankings following Week 14 of the NFL season: 32. Cleveland Browns (0-13, Last week: 32) I can’t believe the Browns blew Sunday’s game. P.J. Tucker says a move to the championship-contending Milwaukee Bucks offers the 35-year-old veteran a breath of fresh air and a chance to turn around a frustrating season. Tucker practiced with his new team Friday after the Bucks officially announced they had acquired the 6-foot-5 forward along with guard Rodions Kurucs from the Houston Rockets The Bucks sent guard D.J. Augustin plus forward D.J. Wilson to Houston.

How has all of that affected the NFL Week 14 Power Rankings ? The Dolphins provided the unlikeliest result of Week 13, coming back from 28-14 down in the third quarter to defeat the Eagles, 37-31. Interestingly, they still, remain in position for a top -four draft pick even with the win. That makes it a great week all around, and Brian Flores deserves a lot of praise for the job he has done with this roster.

Earfun Wave: $30 with discount code

If you're looking for a cheap, comfortable over-ear wireless headphone, Earfun's Wave is an excellent budget choice that sounds decent, has good battery life and nicely padded ear cups. It's normally $50, but if you apply the code EARFUN17 at checkout at Amazon, the price drops to $30. I like the sound of the Tribit XFree Tune slightly better (it's on sale today for $26), but this model is more comfortable to wear. It comes with a case but the headphones don't fold flat (they fold up), the case ends up being pretty bulky. That's their only drawback.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II: $279

On Thanksgiving Day, the Rose Gold edition of the QuietComfort 35 II was on sale for $249 or $100 off. That deal is over, but the black and silver versions (as well as rose gold) will be on sale on Cyber Monday for $279. With the arrival this year of Bose's new Noise Cancelling 700 Headphones ($400), you can expect to see continued sales on the QuietComfort 35 II, which remains a very good headphone that's arguably slightly more comfortable than the 700.

Winter Storm Brings Snow to at Least 30 States

  Winter Storm Brings Snow to at Least 30 States A winter storm that barreled across the United States from Cedar Grove, Calif., where it dropped 49 inches of snow, to Ogunquit, Maine, which saw more than a foot, was finally departing on Tuesday, but not before giving New England one last whack. Having come ashore from the Pacific a week ago as a “bomb cyclone,” the storm dropped at least four inches of snow in 30 states. Its mix of cold, wind, snow, sleet and rain shuttered schools, blocked hundreds of miles of highways, scuttered scores of flights and was linked to multiple deaths over the long holiday weekend in Missouri, Arizona and South Dakota.

Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick at 37: 'I feel like I'm better than I've ever been'

  Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick at 37: 'I feel like I'm better than I've ever been' At 37, veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick says his confidence is at an "all-time high" this season with the Miami Dolphins.Chief among them: The Dolphins are happy with the way he’s playing. He’s happy with the way he’s playing. And so even if the Dolphins do draft Tua Tagovailoa or another quarterback, Fitzpatrick, who will still be under contract next season, could stick around either as the starter until the rookie is ready or serve as a mentor.

Released in early November, the noise-canceling AirPods Pro are regularly priced at $250 but are currently available for $235. This small discount is great for those needing to upgrade their previous AirPods or those who want to dive into a truly wireless audio experience. Note that these keep going in and out of "backordered" status, so right now there appears to be a delay in shipping.

Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart briefly had the WH-XB900N on sale for $130. That deal is gone, but Amazon still has some units on sale for $148 (in blue). They're comfortable to wear and have USB-C charging, good battery life and effective noise cancellation. They also work decently as a headset for making calls, and the sound quality is good as long as you don't mind a preponderance of bass.

You can save $100 on the Sennheiser HD 4.50R model right now at Best Buy. The only difference between it and the HD 4.50 BTNC version that I reviewed is that the accent color is red instead of silver. (The BTNC model is also on sale at Best Buy, but for $130.) At this price, this is a solid budget alternative to premium models from Bose and Sony.

Amazon has Klipsch's T5 True Wireless earbuds on sale for $50 off. I was impressed with their sound -- it's nicely detailed with natural-sounding mids and punchy, well-defined bass. The only caveat is you really have to jam the tips into your ears to get a tight seal and block out noise, and the design may not be for everyone.

While the Zippo-inspired case is somewhat heavy for its relatively compact size, it's sleek and sturdy with USB-C charging. Battery life is also a highlight: The earbuds themselves can run for up to 8 hours on a single charge at moderate volume levels and the case with its built-in battery provides three additional charges on the go.

The T5 Wireless earbuds use Bluetooth 5.0 and support both AAC and AptX. As for water resistance, they're splashproof (IPX4-certified).

The Powerbeats Pro are back, once again selling at the previous all-time low price of $200. A bit of a mixed bag, the Powerbeats Pro have good sound quality, battery life and stay securely plugged into your ears. But you'll need to cart them around in an awkwardly large case that isn't especially pocket friendly. If you don't mind the large case, though, you're not going to find these earbuds for a better price.

Best Buy has the all-black version of the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3150 true wireless earbuds on sale for $50 off. The open design lets ambient noise in (a safety feature for runners) while the BackBeat Fit 3200 has a noise-isolating design that helps improve the sound quality, particularly the bass. That said, both models have the same drivers so they produce the same sound -- you just hear it differently thanks to the design of the ear tips. Both are an improvement over the earlier Backbeat 3100 model, which had some connectivity issues.

As with the Powerbeats Pro, the one downside is that the BackBeat Fit 3150 earbuds have a large charging case that isn't so pocket-friendly.

I thought they were a little expensive at $180, but Best Buy has them for $110, which makes them more attractive.
