NFL POWER RANKINGS: Ravens, Seahawks in a free fall; Cardinals enter top 10 for Week 11
Week 11 of the NFL season is a reminder that there are only two months left before the playoffs. The results of Week 10 tightened things up near the top of the league and also caused some separation for some improving teams away from the bottom.
A few Super Bowl contenders continued to make big statements. There also was more clarity among the several wild-card upstarts in both conferences. On the flip side, some teams kept fading or digging bigger holes. Steelers fans have become increasingly annoyed that their favourite team is not No. 1 in the Power Rankings.
Here’s how all the teams in the league now stack up against each other from No. 1 to No. 32 according to The Sports Round Up latest power rankings.
