(AP Photo/Matt Rourke) Admittedly, we’re getting to the point where power rankings are becoming meaningless.Either you’re in the playoffs, or you’re not. Six teams have punched their postseason tickets. Three, including the Arizona Cardinals, have clinched their division. The Cardinals got 187 yards rushing and three touchdowns from David Johnson in a 40-17 dismantling of the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night to lock up the NFC West crown for the first time since 2009.

No Cardinals group has ever started 12-2. In case you were wondering: Up until this point, the greatest team in franchise history was the 1948 outfit, which went 11-1 before losing to the Eagles in the NFL Championship Game at Shibe Park in Philadelphia. So consider Sunday night’s contest a grudge match. Losing Honey Badger sure hurts, though.2015 NFL Power Rankings: Week 16#2 (no movement)The Cardinals have set franchise records for wins (12) and points scored (445) this season, and there are still two games to play.

Not bad for a guy who averaged three carries over his team’s first nine games and just became the starter in December. 2015 NFL Power Rankings: Week 16#2 (no movement)The Cardinals may have finally found their ideal foundation running back in rookie David Johnson, who set the team’s all-time rookie touchdown record (12) this season. Tyrann Mathieu had evolved into one of the NFL’s elite defensive backs this season, and his loss (ACL) will be a setback for the defense overall.NFL Power Rankings: Where Does Every Team Rank Heading into Week 16?#2 (no movement)The Arizona Cardinals desperately needed a reliable power runner as the final piece of their offense. They drafted David Johnson in the third round, and now the rookie has arrived.Johnson stomped the Philadelphia Eagles with 229 yards from scrimmage Sunday night (187 rushing yards and 42 receiving yards) during a division-clinching win. He also scored three times, all while galloping for 6.7 yards per carry.His 12 all-purpose touchdowns are the most by a rookie in Cardinals history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau (via SportsCenter). He’s added another dimension to a frighteningly deep offense.NFL power rankings 2015, Week 16: Steelers, Packers up; Broncos dropping#2 (no movement)The Cardinals may be a real threat. They blew out the red-hot Eagles to move to 12-2 on the year, dethroning the Seahawks as the NFC West champions. It could prove to be a Pyrrhic victory in the end, though, as Arizona lost Tyrann Mathieu to a torn ACL during garbage time snaps. The Defensive Player of the Year candidate will be pretty impossible to replace — he plays safety, corner, linebacker and a little bit of everything else for the Cardinals — so a number of depth players will have to step in in relief. They’ve weathered losses in the past, though, and I have the feeling that Arizona is going to keep making noise once the playoffs roll around. There’s not a lot of room for the Cardinals to move up, as you’ll see in this week’s Power Rankings Roundup.

It pulls the same trick Samsung did with the Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10, offering a similar design to the company’s flagship but with stripped down specifications and a lower price. The biggest change on the Mi 9 SE is the move to use a less powerful Qualcomm 712 CPU.We’re in the process of reviewing the Mi 9 SE, but considering how much we loved the full fat Mi 9 we have high hopes for the handset.

The handset offers top end, flagship phone features and performance but costs a modest £499, making it one of the best value handsets on the market.The news comes straight after Xiaomi unveiled a new line of CC series phones. The CC brand is reportedly designed “for young people”. What this exactly means, or how the CC brand will differentiate from Xiaomi’s existing Mi, Redmi and Mix lines remains to be seen.
