The NFL Power Rankings for the 2018-19 season are officially in the books. In a wild and crazy Super Bowl, the New England Patriots defeated the Los Angeles Rams by the final score of 13-3. If you are a fan of offense, this was not your type of game.

According to a CBS Sports report, in a game full of powerhouses on offense for both teams it was the defenses that led the way on Super Bowl Sunday. Outside of New England's Julian Edelman, neither team seemed to be able to gain a positive yard throughout the first half of play.

Pats are champs again

Jared Goff looked like the bright lights were too much as he struggled the entire game. You can’t totally blame Goff for the Rams offensive woes during Super Bowl 53. Most of those came as a result of New England’s stingy and swarming defensive play.

Now for Los Angeles, the offseason will be about all the “what ifs,” while for the Patriots it will be about how they can head to their 10th Super Bowl in 2020 under Tom Brady.

Browns show major improvement

When the 2018 NFL regular season began, the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts were an afterthought in terms of postseason play. While the Browns' effort to make the payoffs fell short, they improved dramatically from last season – and they owe that to Baker Mayfield.

Mayfield may be the QB the Browns have been waiting for since the days of Bernie Kosar.

Cleveland will not get overlooked in 2019, especially by a division rival.

As for the Colts, Andrew Luck is back! This team was No. 20 or lower in most power rankings at this time last season, however, they have seemed to put it all together in 2018 as they were one game shy of the AFC Championship.

The Redskins and Steelers stumbled down the stretch, while the Chargers and Bears showed that they have what it takes to contend next season.
