The push for the playoffs is on, and the teams at the top of our rankings are starting to solidify their positions. After the top six or seven teams, though, it's still anybody's game. Who will hang on and make it to the postseason? And will Tim Tebow and the Broncos be there? We'll see. Here are the top 10 NFL teams going into Week 14.

10 Dallas Cowboys (7-5)

Despite a road blunder last week against Arizona, the Cowboys still lead the NFC East. But the first of two titanic matchups against the rival Giants comes this week in Big D. The winner gets the inside track in the division.

9 Tennessee Titans (7-5)

The Titans have won three of their last four to muscle back into a crowded AFC playoff race. The road isn't easy, starting with a battle against the Saints this week, but they could still overtake the Texans for the AFC South title.

8 Denver Broncos (7-5)
Associated Press

Yes, Tim Tebow and the comeback Broncos are in the top 10 for the first time all season. It hasn't been pretty, but winning six out of the last seven games is nothing to sneer at. The AFC West is Denver's for the taking.

7 Houston Texans (9-3)

Will rookie quarterback T.J. Yates remain the starter? With the way this team runs the football, it might not matter. But the Texans can't let up -- Tennessee is lurking.

6 New England Patriots (9-3)
Associated Press

They've had some ups and downs this year, but Tom Brady and the Patriots are in the mix for an AFC title yet again. With an easy schedule ahead, they're still very much alive in the race for the top seed.

5 Pittsburgh Steelers (9-3)
Associated Press

The Steelers demolished AFC North foe Cincinnati to keep pace with the Ravens. Those two losses to Baltimore are looking more and more costly, however. The price might be home field advantage in the AFC.

4 New Orleans Saints (9-3)
Associated Press

The Saints are the one team that can catch the Niners for that first-round playoff bye. If their offense continues to score in bunches, they just might do it.

3 San Francisco 49ers (10-2)
Associated Press

The Niners clinched their first division championship since 2002 on Sunday with a win over the Rams. They still face the Steelers in Week 15, but a first-round bye is looking good for Alex Smith and the boys from the Bay.

2 Baltimore Ravens (9-3)
Associated Press

An excellent ground attack put Cleveland away last week. If Baltimore continues to run the ball like that (and if its defense stays strong), they'll be a very tough out come January.

1 Green Bay Packers (12-0)
Associated Press

The defending champs needed a last-second field goal to clinch a win over the Giants and stay undefeated. They'll take on the battered Raiders at Lambeau this week to try and make it 13-0.
