Week 16 NFL Power Rankings: Sporting News Drops Denver Broncos To No. 11

The latest Week 16 power rankings come from AOL's Sporting News, which have the Denver Broncos (8-6) sliding from No. 8 to No. 11:

11. Denver Broncos (8)

Christmas wish: A durable Willis McGahee

Contrary to popular belief, McGahee is the Broncos' most effective power runner, not Tim Tebow. Without their feature back at full strength, the offense isn't the same.

Well, if McGahee is the keystone to the Broncos' offensive success, then Denver got some good news Tuesday when their running back proved healthy enough to practice.

McGahee has missed only one game in the 2011 NFL Season, and he currently leads the team with 990 rushing yards. QB Tim Tebow is second with 610 yards on the ground.
