NFL Week 11 Power Rankings

1. Falcons (8-1) – Lost in a classic against the Saints, but still remain NFL’s most dominant team so far.

2. Texans (8-1) – Won a gritty battle vs. Bears last week, showing they can win tough games. It’s important to note that Cutler’s injury contributed to Houston’s win.

3. Bears (7-2) – Very disappointing loss to the Texans as Cutler went down with a concussion. They’re going to need him back and 100% against the 49ers this week.

4. Ravens (7-2) – Joe Flacco had a very impressive game albeit against a bad Raiders secondary. They’re going to need to stay consistent on offense if they want to go to the Super Bowl this year.

5. 49ers (6-2-1) – Very unfortunate tie against the Rams. They had many opportunities to put the Rams away but couldn’t do it even though they received a good game from Colin Kaepernick after Alex Smith was forced to leave the game with a concussion.

6. Broncos (6-3) – Peyton Manning continues to play outstanding, and there is no question Peyton Manning is back and better than ever.

7. Packers (6-3) – They needed the bye week to get healthy.

8. Giants (6-4) – The annual November slump is alive and well. Luckily, the Giants have a bye week and can fix their issues on both sides of the ball.

9. Patriots (6-3) – Unimpressive defensive performance against the Bills, but the defense got the job done when they needed to.

10. Seahawks (6-4) – Another impressive win as the Seahawks are in prime position to grab the 6th playoff sport going into the bye.

11. Colts (6-3) – They beat up on the Jaguars Thursday night, but that is not something to brag about.

13. Steelers (6-3) – The loss of Ben Roethlisberger could hurt the Steelers in the long run.

13. Buccaneers (5-4) – They were able to beat an inconsistent Chargers team and could be in contention for an NFC Wild Card spot.

14. Vikings (6-4) – Adrian Peterson continues to lead this team to success. They’re going to need him with the difficult schedule coming up.

15. Saints (4-5) – The Saints have finally learned how to win games again, and all NFC playoff hopefuls better beware: The Saints are back.

16. Lions (4-5) – Lost a huge divisional game against the Vikings and need to rekindle that fire they had in 2011.

17. Cowboys (4-5) – The Cowboys beat a battered Eagles team, but they leave me unimpressed.

18. Bengals (4-5) – They showed they can win big games when their back is against the wall last week against the Giants.

19. Chargers (4-5) – They’re about two losses away form a mass firing that will completely revamp this team.

20. Rams (3-5-1) – They hung in there against the 49ers, but they weren’t able to get the job done.

21. Titans (4-6) – Finally woke up and killed the Dolphins 37-3 following a 51-20 loss to the Bears the week before. Is Locker the missing link?

22. Dolphins (4-5) – Horrible play by Ryan Tannehill and Co. They need to improve if they want to stay in the hunt.

23. Redskins (3-6) – Hopefully, they’ve fixed their offensive and defensive woes over the bye week or this will be a long second half of the season.

24. Eagles (3-6) – The Eagles are taking a major downward spiral and to me, the season is now over. They should see what they have in Nick Foles if they don’t think Vick is the long-term answer.

25. Cardinals (4-5) – They needed a bye week to fix the horrendous play they’ve produced recently.

26. Bills (3-6) – Almost pulled off a major upset against the Patriots. Maybe this will give them momentum going forward.

27. Jets (3-6) – They need to make a change at QB if they want to save their season from a Top 5 draft pick. It’s Tebow Time.

28. Raiders (3-6) – The Carson Palmer experiment has been a total failure for the Raiders. They need to give Terrelle Pryor a chance.

29. Panthers (2-7) – Cam Newton needs to turn things around the next couple of games to give the Panthers and their fans hope for the future.

30. Browns (2-7) – Pat Shurmur is going to need to string a couple of wins together to keep his job with some nice free agent head coaches coming available at the end of the season.

31. Jaguars (1-8) – The showed no fight against the Colts, and it may be time to see what they have in Chad Henne.

32. Chiefs (1-8) – They are still trying to find some rhythm on offense and defense, but they just can’t get anything going. That falls on mainly the coaching staff.
