There’s the two teams at the top, then there is a slog of 13 teams behind them fighting it out. Here are your NFL Power Rankings for Week 11.
If you are a Las Vegas Raiders fan, then you won’t like your rankings today. Your team is terrible and deserves my contempt. There, now that I got my crying over spilled milk out of the way, let’s talk Week 11 NFL power rankings.
Behind them, things get a little messy. I really like the Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals, but they have some questionable games out there. I still think they are really good, though. I would put the New Orleans Saints in that category, but with Drew Brees out for an unknown length of time with a collapsed lung… that team might be fading fast here in the coming weeks.
The AFC has nine, yes nine, teams with a 6-3 or better record. The worst of which is the aforementioned Raiders, but they can still somehow luck into a playoff spot down the stretch. The NFC is clearly the weaker conference this year.
As for our beloved Denver Broncos. They have started 3-6 for the fourth straight season and have a most brutal schedule over the next month. 26th on this ranking is generous based on what we’ve seen from this team over the first nine games. The only solace is that they might be able to end the season with a chance to ruin the playoff dreams of Raiders fans everywhere.
