Week 11 NFL Power Rankings

0 1622

16.     kwth8f1cfa2sch5xhjjfaof90        Arizona Cardinals

Record: 4-5-1
Last Week: 13

The Cardinals are under .500 this year and the team is looking like a shell of its former self. The defense was supposed to be much improved with the likes of Chandler Jones coming in to reinforce the line. It’s not looking good for the Cardinals, they’re sitting behind 5 other teams for the remaining 2 wildcard spots.

15.     15041052013        Miami Dolphins

Record: 6-4
Last Week: 17

Miami was able to pull out a win in Los Angeles in just under 4 minutes. Jarvis Landry’s touchdown was more of a team effort than anything else. The Rams blew this one after a promising first drive for Los Angeles. The Rams defense is allowing just 19 points a game, but unfortunately the offense is just putting up 3 -6 a game.

14.     cwuyv0w15ruuk34j9qnfuoif9        Detroit Lions

Record: 6-4
Last Week: 16

Detroit averaged under 1 yard per carry this week, but were still able to defeat the Jags on Sunday. The Lions are still leading their division after the collapse in Minnesota, if Detroit can hold on to this they will be the division champs for the first time since 1983 when they finished the season with a 9-7 record.

13.     570        Houston Texans

Record: 6-3
Last Week: 11

The Texans were on the receiving end of some unfortunate calls in Mexico City on Monday including one that brought back 6 points from Deandre Hopkins in another episode of “Did He or Didn’t He Step Out?” As unfortunate as this situation is, the Texans are still in first place in their division and maintain the same lead because the Titans lost. The Colts might have to play on Thanksgiving without Andrew Luck as he is still trying to overcome the concussion he suffered this week. More and more players come out and boycott the Thursday games and it’s harder and harder to disagree with them when situations like this arise.

12.     970        Pittsburgh Steelers

Record: 5-5
Last Week: 14

The Steelers got a few chances to put the ball in the end zone at the end of the first half due to some penalties in the end zone and eventually Le’Veon Bell was able to punch it in as both teams and fans were more excited to get out of the cold than they were to watch a few more untimed downs. Bell looked like the stud that we were used to watching a few years ago before he tore his ACL. Zeke may be the biggest named RB right now, but Le’Veon is flying under the radar and teams should be careful.

11.     960        Philadelphia Eagles

Record: 5-5
Last Week: 9

Carson Wentz didn’t look too phased by the sound at CenturyLink Field, but ultimately finished with an average stat line, 23/45 218 yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 picks. The Eagles lost running backs Darren Sproles and Ryan Matthews to injuries and limited the Eagles offense to mainly passing against Seattle. If the Eagles can finish the season strong they still might have a shot at the wildcard spot, but there is no way they catch up to Dallas this year.

10.     17227042013        Minnesota Vikings  

Record: 6-4
Last Week: 12

Minnesota finally pulled out a win to stop the horrific avalanche that threatened to dismantle their season. The Vikings are still tied for 2nd in their division with the 6-4 Lions and the last 4 weeks of the season are really going to mean a lot to both teams…obviously. This game was highlighted by Xavier Rhodes’ 100 yard pick-6 of Carson Palmer, and it was especially helpful considering the game finished as just a 6 point win for Minnesota. If the defense can keep this team in the final 4 games this year it could all come down to Sam Bradford and Blair Walsh’s replacement Kai Forbath.

9.     299        Atlanta Falcons

Record: 6-4
Last Week: 10

The Falcons were on a bye this week and it was more costly for them than it was helpful. The Panthers and the Bucs both won this week and cut the lead down to just a game for Tampa and two games for Carolina. The NFC South is heating up with just a few weeks left in the season, Atlanta started the season off really well, can they finish the season as well as they started or will their dabbing owner lead the team to another missed playoff opportunity?
