Power Rankings (week 11)

November 14, 2012 by Steel Haven

Rnk LW* Team Record Comments
1. 3. Houston Texans 8-1 Impressively out slugged the Bears in Chicago.
2. 1. Atlanta Falcons 8-1 Time for the '72 Dolphins to break out the champagne.
3. 2. Chicago Bears 7-2 Couldn't overcome loss of Cutler to a concussion.
4. 4. Green Bay Packers 6-3 Winners of 4 straight come off a bye with 5 of their final 7 games against division foes having already beaten the Bears.
5. 6. Baltimore Ravens 7-2 The 55 points they scored against the Raiders was the most by any team in a single game this season.
6. 7. Denver Broncos 6-3 Manning's 420th TD pass tied Marino for second all time, throwing 88 more to catch Favre won't be easy for the 36 year old.
7. 8. New England Patriots 6-3 Struggling defense makes them vulnerable.
8. 5. San Francisco 49ers 6-2-1 Tying the Rams like kissing your sister, if your sister had a 70’s porn ‘stache.
9. 9. Pittsburgh Steelers 6-3 Inability to put away bad teams quickly is maddening. Likely loss of Roethlisberger with 2 of the next 3 games against the Ravens means a wild card is their ceiling.
10. 13. Indianapolis Colts 6-3 Luck already set franchise single season for TD runs by a QB with 5, has only 1 less than RGIII.
11. 10. New York Giants 6-4 Bye comes at a good time with annual November swoon in full force.
12. 12. Seattle Seahawks 6-4 Need Wilson to start playing better on the road.
13. 14. Minnesota Vikings 6-4 Bow down before Purple Jesus.
14. 16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-4 Schiano has instilled toughness.
15. 17. New Orleans Saints 4-5 Winners of 4 of 5 after awful start, watch out NFC.
16. 20. Dallas Cowboys 4-5 Next 4 games against currently sub-.500 opponents could get them back into the race.
17. 21. Cincinnati Bengals 4-5 Manhandling of the Giants saved their season.
18. 11. Detriot Lions 4-5 Just can't seem to get over the hump.
19. 23. Tennessee Titans 4-6 Return of Locker gave them a boost.
20. 15. Miami Dolphins 4-5 Have to live with Tannehill's growing pains.
21. 18. San Diego Chargers 4-5 Rivers poor play is the problem, not Norv's coaching. Can't believe I just typed that.... Smith and Norv are going to pay.
22. 22. Arizona Cardinals 4-5 Not sure what adjustments could be made on bye week. Severe lack of offensive line talent is just too tough to overcome.
23. 19. Philadelphia Eagles 3-6 Foles was in over his head replacing an injured Vick. He was no more the answer than firing Castillo.
24. 24. St. Louis Rams 3-5-1 Victims of the referees letting the clock run twice while calling for a measurement. If that had been the replacement referees the media would have had a field day.
25. 25. Washington Redskins 3-6 Could decide the NFC East with 5 of their final 7 games against division opponents.
26. 23. Carolina Panthers 2-7 Firing special teams coach Murphy after they gave up a punt return TD is a sign of Rivera's desperation.
27. 24. New York Jets 3-6 Remember when Ryan and Sanchez made the AFC Championship game in consecutive seasons? No, me either….
28. 26. Oakland Raiders 3-6 Visit from Saints not a salve for their defensive woes.
29. 28. Buffalo Bills 3-6 The latest team to learn that free agent spending does not guarantee improvement.
30. 30. Cleveland Browns 2-7 Shurmur in a tough spot as they build for a future of which he will not be a part.
31. 31. Jacksonville Jaguars 1-8 Hard to envision Mularkey not being 1 and done.
32. 32. Kansas City Chiefs 1-8 Finally led for the first time in regulation, not that it ultimately mattered.
