Last week marked the official end of multiple eras. The Packers didn’t strike QB gold three times in a row, Bill Belichick’s special sauce has dried up, and Josh Allen looks to be more comparable to Sam Howell than Patrick Mahomes. Some teams are good, but most of them are bad this season, which can be seen in the Week 11 NFL Power Rankings below.
The 32 teams below are ranked both on where they stand and where they are projected to go. This means that the injuries of today do play a major factor. The NFL is a short season and every loss matters.
With that being said, let’s jump into the Week 11 NFL Power Rankings!
NFL Power Rankings For Week 11
1) Philadelphia Eagles (Last Week: 1)
The Philadelphia Eagles had a bye last week, and no other team did enough to usurp them at the top of the NFL Power Rankings.
2) Kansas City Chiefs (2)
The Kansas City Chiefs had a bye last week.
3) San Francisco 49ers (3)
The San Francisco 49ers looked sharp in their first game post-bye. It was no surprise, as we have talked about how talented and strong the top-end of their roster is, so getting many key players healthier was important in a game against Jacksonville. There is no doubt that the 49ers are in the conversation for the best team in the NFL when the offense has the playmakers healthy. However, the conversation around this team has nothing to do with November football. How will the San Francisco 49ers injury report look in January? That is the only thing Niners fans have to worry about.
4) Baltimore Ravens (4)
The Baltimore Ravens continue to start games as good as anyone, but they lack the “step on the throat” mentality I look for with championship-contending teams. As a result, Baltimore’s lead in an important divisional game with the Cleveland Browns was lost, and the Ravens’ gap atop the AFC North was trimmed. There is zero reason to hit the panic button, but they need to press the reset button quickly.
The Ravens play the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football in their most important game of the season to date. If the Ravens lose, not only will they fall in the NFL Power Rankings, but their automatic bid to the playoffs will be in jeopardy.
5) Detroit Lions (7)
The Detroit Lions found themselves in a shootout with the Los Angeles Chargers. Dan Campbell was his aggressive self in this game, and it paid off again, but this game was a “fight crazy with crazy” situation that almost burnt them. Regardless, the Lions’ offense took care of business once again, rising to 7-2 on the season. It’s crazy, but Detroit is one of the true threats in the league.

6) Miami Dolphins (6)
The Miami Dolphins had a bye last week.
7) Jacksonville Jaguars (5)
Someone should’ve let the Jacksonville Jaguars know that their bye was only one week long. Instead, they refused to show up in a “measuring stick” game against the San Francisco 49ers. How did they measure up? Well, they could only muster up three points and the murmurs questioning Trevor Lawrence have gotten a little louder. Suddenly, the AFC South is extremely close despite Jacksonville looking like they’d run away with it a month ago. The Jaguars need to be a bit more sharp if they don’t want to keep sliding in the NFL Power Rankings.
8) Dallas Cowboys (8)
The Dallas Cowboys had a game(?) against the New York Giants last week. The 17-point spread was laughably not near close enough, as they finished the season 2-0 over the Giants by a +72-point margin. There isn’t much to take away from this game, but the Cowboys did what they were supposed to do, which is more than what most teams can say with their performances this season.
9) Cleveland Browns (11)
With a comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens, the Cleveland Browns return to the top 10 of our NFL Power Rankings, and maybe for good. The Browns’ defense is obviously playing terrific, as they have the entire season. However, Deshaun Watson is back and showing some flashes of his former self. And not the inappropriate kind of flashes in a predatory way. He’s likely still a scumbag, but he is extending plays and getting his receivers involved well.
10) Cincinnati Bengals (9)
The Cincinnati Bengals may have lost to the Houston Texans this week, but the most important thing for them is that the Baltimore Ravens also lost. The Bengals must find a way to keep Joe Burrow clean on Thursday night and going forward for them to have any chance at contending. New year, same issues.
11) Buffalo Bills (10)
12) Seattle Seahawks (12)
13) Pittsburgh Steelers (15)
14) Houston Texans (17)
15) Los Angeles Chargers (13)
16) Minnesota Vikings (20)
17) New Orleans Saints (14)
18) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (18)
19) Los Angeles Rams (19)
20) Denver Broncos (23)
21) New York Jets (16)
22) Indianapolis Colts (24)
23) Tennessee Titans (22)
24) Atlanta Falcons (21)
25) Washington Commanders (25)
26) Green Bay Packers (27)
27) Arizona Cardinals (29)
28) Chicago Bears (28)
29) New England Patriots (26)
30) Las Vegas Raiders (30)
31) Carolina Panthers (32)
32) New York Giants (31)
