Power Rankings (week 11)

November 16, 2011 by Steel Haven

1.1.Green Bay Packers9-0Current 11 game winning streak is the longest in the storied franchise's history.
2.2.San Francisco 49ers8-1Yet to allow a rushing TD this season.
3.7.New Orleans Saints7-3Breesus has completed at least 20 passes in 30 straight games.
4.3.Baltimore Ravens6-3The week after playing the Steelers is their kryptonite.
5.5.Pittsburgh Steelers7-3Won 13 of their last 14 games against rookie QBs.
6.6.New England Patriots6-3Belichick/Brady passed Shula/Marino to become the winningest coach/QB combination in history.
7.4.New York Giants6-3No real shame in Manning's patented comeback coming up short in San Francisco.
8.12.Houston Texans7-3Can potent running game help them overcome devastating Schaub injury? Probably in the regular season, not in the playoffs.
9.14.Chicago Bears6-3Should be forced to immediately forfeit whenever they put on the orange jerseys.
10.9.Atlanta Falcons5-4Failed on 4th and inches from their own 29 in OT. What was Smith thinking?
11.8.Detriot Lions6-3Wheels fell off in Chicago; 1-3 after undefeated start.
12.11.Cincinnati Bengals6-3Youngster Dalton taught a tough lesson by septuagenarian LeBeau. Loss of Hall for the season may be a tougher blow than loss to Steelers.
13.15.Dallas Cowboys5-4Scored TDs on their first 4 possessions while cruising to victory. Remaining schedule is soft, although they have a habit of playing down to the competition.
14.18.Oakland Raiders5-4Got back on track rushing for 191 yards without McFadden.
15.10.New York Jets5-4QBs of the draft class of 2009 including Sanchez, Stafford and Freeman all seem to be regressing.
16.21.Tennessee Titans5-4Johnson is alive!
17.13.Buffalo Bills5-4The balloon has burst. At least Nelson got to profess his love after getting into the end zone.
18.24.Denver Broncos4-5Tebow! Winning ugly completing no passes in the first half and 2 for the entire game.
19.16.Philadelphia Eagles3-6Blew a fourth quarter lead for the fifth time. Jackson was inactive for sulking and missing a meeting. Vick's status for next week is uncertain after breaking a pair of ribs. Hard to envision Reid surviving this debacle.
20.19.Tampa Bay Buccaneers4-5Freeman threw 3 more interceptions.
21.17.Kansas City Chiefs4-5Haley back on the hot seat.
22.20.San Diego Chargers4-5Lost the season series to the Raiders for a second straight year giving up a whopping 442 rushing yards in the 2 matchups.
23.26.Jacksonville Jaguars3-6Jones-Drew joined Taylor as the only backs in franchise history with 6000 rushing yards.
24.22.Minnesota Vikings2-7Luckily for the viewing public Monday night was their last scheduled prime time game of the season.
25.28.Miami Dolphins2-7Got their first win at home in 364 days. That's 1 day short of a year, I checked.
26.29.Arizona Cardinals3-6Facing 4th and 2 with just over 2 minutes remaining, down 3 with Skelton looking beyond horrible having just thrown a pick to go down a field goal. Then he pulled a pair of completions out of his ass on incredible catches by Pitt grads Stephens-Howling and Fitzgerald. After Beanie was stuffed twice from the 1 losing 3 yards Skelton found Doucet for a TD. Skelton threw for 166 yards in the fourth quarter and has now won 2 straight.
27.30.Seattle Seahawks3-6Workhorse Lynch gained 109 yards on 32 carries, the best of which came on the final drive to ice the game when he froze Lewis and then faked him out of his jock strap.
28.31.St. Louis Rams2-7Ogbonnaya gained a career high 90 yards rushing in defeat and his 32 yard run was the team's longest of the season.
29.23.Carolina Panthers2-7Has Newton hit the rookie wall?
30.25.Washington Redskins3-6Return of the Sex Cannon was not the answer. Neither was Beck. Shanahan is in the midst of the first 5 game losing streak of his career for a reason.
31.27.Cleveland Browns3-6Dawson missed a chip shot game winner when his timing was thrown off because the snap hit the guard�s leg.
32.32.Indianapolis Colts0-10Luck is theirs if they want him. No way they win 2 games.
