NFL Christmas Tree Power Rankings


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Since you are on the Internet this December 25th holiday, we figured you might as well check out some cool NFL Christmas trees.

The wonderful people over at The Wall Street Journal got 29 NFL organizations to send in pictures of the Christmas trees from their team facilities. In proper sports fashion, the Journal then gave the trees a power ranking.

You can check out the entire slideshow here.

I have a couple thoughts on the Journal's rankings:

1. Love the Bengals. They are the one team that went overt with team spirit. They're No. 1 in my book.

2. As usual, the Carolina Panthers are underrated.

3. The Cowboys' tree is the flashiest. I'm surprised they shunned their own star at the top. Shoot, I'd have just stuck a Cowboys helmet on top of the tree. Sort of like how the Bears or Jets did.

4. Whoever made the bird on top of the Cardinals' tree has skills.

5. Kudos to the 49ers' use of a logo Santa hat at the top of their tree. That is holiday spirit.

On behalf of everyone here at NFL Media, we hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday season.
