Week 11 power rankings

yahoo_schaubkubiak Getty Images

1. Texans (four first-place votes): Their flirtation with the 1-9 Jaguars cost them nothing in the standings, but two of our six voters decided based on that performance that best team in the NFL currently doesn’t reside in Houston.

2. Falcons (one first-place vote): When a team can have six turnovers and still win, that’s a pretty good team. (Then again, it may have had something to do with the fact that the team it was playing is pretty bad.)

3. Patriots (one first-place vote): Rob Gronkowski was more likely to break an arm spiking the football than serving on the PAT team.

4. 49ers: Maybe the 49ers shut Alex Smith down because they knew what Colin Kaepernick could do.

5. Ravens: So should the Ravens feel good or bad about beating the hapless, Ben-less Steelers by three points?

6. Broncos: The question isn’t whether they’ll win the AFC West. The question is how many times they’ll lap the field.

7. Packers: Five straight wins, and the Packers are looking a lot like the team that won 15 in 2011.

8. Giants: Falling into the annual November swoon is the easy part. Getting out of it is the hard part.

9. Seahawks: The final game of the replacement referee debacle could end up helping Seattle a lot more than it hurts Green Bay.

10. Steelers: With Ben Roethlisberger and now Byron Leftwich injured, the Browns have never been happier to see the Steelers come to town.

11. Bears: Before assuming that Monday night’s outcome would have been different with Jay Cutler, remember that the offensive line would have been the same.

12. Buccaneers: With the surging Bucs struggling to sell out against the 9-1 Falcons, it’s hard not to wonder whether they could fill up a stadium even if the tickets were free.

13. Saints: We’ve got a feeling Gregg Williams won’t be seeking — or receiving — permission to attend the Saints’ first meeting with the 49ers since the “kill the head” game.

14. Vikings: Suddenly, the prospect of playing the Bears twice in three weeks doesn’t seem quite so daunting.

15. Bengals: They still have to beat the Steelers or Ravens to steal a wild-card berth, but at least they’re finally winning games again.

16. Colts: Somewhere, Peyton Manning is saying, “I never lost by 35 at New England.”

17. Cowboys: Wow, Rob Ryan really stuck it to the Browns.

18. Redskins: That “evaluation” process has gotten off to a pretty good start.  We suggest keeping the guy who wears No. 10.

19. Bills: Win at Indy, and things could get interesting for the Bills. (And, yes, I typed “Win at Indy” with a straight face. Mostly.)

20. Titans: Based on what they did to the Dolphins, the Titans could be a factor in the scrum for the sixth seed.

21. Lions: Sending Titus Young home for the week makes us wonder who’ll perform the Second Annual Thanksgiving Stomp.

22. Jets: On Thanksgiving night, America will be thankful to not be subjected to bounce passes from the backup quarterback.

23. Rams: Danny Amendola now realizes a tie is much better than losing to the Jets.

24. Chargers: With four of the final six games at home, the Chargers are about to save a lot of money on ticket-printing costs.

25. Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill didn’t hit the rookie wall. The rookie wall hit him.

26. Cardinals: So when does Larry Fitzgerald ask to be traded?

27. Eagles: So when does DeSean Jackson ask to be traded?

28. Panthers: So when does Cam Newton ask to be traded?

29. Raiders: So when does Carson Palmer ask why did you trade for me?

30. Browns: The Factory of Sadness is working overtime, now that it’s the holiday season.

31. Jaguars: Losing with flair doesn’t make losing any better.

32. Chiefs: Losing without flair makes losing a lot worse.

    Honestly expected to see the Raiders at 31 after the Browns and Jags were at least game for tough matchups against superior opponents.

    At least we all have the titanic tire fire that is Kansas City.

  2. boon613 says: Nov 20, 2012 9:44 AM

    RG3 is going to turn this club around. If only he had a healthy receiver or tight end. Maybe next year in the draft..oh yeah :/

  3. tonyarnold2 says: Nov 20, 2012 9:45 AM

    So the Ravens win against a top 10 ranked division rival and drop two spots, but the Texans go to overtime and nearly lose against the #31 team and stay? And the Falcons have 6 turnovers and barely win against the #26 team and stay? Ridiculous.

  4. tjacks7 says: Nov 20, 2012 9:46 AM

    I like how you set up the Carson Palmer zinger.

  5. logicalvoicesays says: Nov 20, 2012 9:47 AM

    The Redskins are the best team in the NFC as far as I’m concerned. RGIII best QB in professional football at this point and time.

  6. peezwizz says: Nov 20, 2012 9:48 AM

    that’s what averaging 35.8 points a game will do. scheme scheme, plot plot. GO PATS.

  7. jtincher34 says: Nov 20, 2012 9:51 AM

    Here’s an idea, say something about how well the Bucs are playing instead of constant, weekly jabs at the fan base. We get it, the Bucs don’t sell out games.

  8. southpaw2k says: Nov 20, 2012 9:56 AM

    I must be nuts for thinking the Ravens are still a better team than the Pats, given they beat them head to head when the Pats still had Gronk in their lineup. Now that the Pats are short both Hernandez and Gronk, they strike me as significantly weaker. They have two very tough games left against Houston and San Fran (albeit both at home), and could face another early playoff exit without their two best offensive targets.

  9. bergencountyjc says: Nov 20, 2012 9:57 AM

    All I want to know is where are my dang pylon cameras that were promised? Or was it all meant to be a distraction from the replacement refs early in the season?

  10. blitz87 says: Nov 20, 2012 9:59 AM

    I’m not even a Bucs fan but what’s with the constant bashing about them not being able to sell out? They’re on a very nice win streak: talk about that.

  11. bucrightoff says: Nov 20, 2012 10:00 AM

    There you go again, not even able to say the slightest thing positive about the Bucs. That’s cool, with the core that’s in place, you’ll get lots of chances to say negative things about a winning team.

  12. guthyrenks says: Nov 20, 2012 10:01 AM

    Dolphins need WR and DB’s and then maybe they will actually look like a real football team

  13. gmsalpha says: Nov 20, 2012 10:05 AM

    The Chargers would sell more tickets if they wore their powder blues at every home game.

    The Bucaneers would sell more tickets if they wore their creamsicles at every home game.

    If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you play good. If you play good, ticket sales will be good.

  14. eaglesfanalways says: Nov 20, 2012 10:06 AM

    Wow…Eagles at #27…now I know how Panthers fans have felt. And, really looking forward to Monday night’s game.

  15. dennisatunity says: Nov 20, 2012 10:07 AM

    Hi Mike:
    I actually like the ranking for the Seahawks. 9th seems about right and they are rising. But since you jabbed them once again about the Green Bay game, I assume in all fairness you will go back and review every bad call for every team that is in playoff contention.

  16. bkostela says: Nov 20, 2012 10:07 AM

    “The final game of the replacement referee debacle could end up helping Seattle a lot more than it hurts Green Bay.”

    Funny you bring them up. Replacement refs could have done a better job sorting out last night’s safety call. The head official sounded like it was his first day on the job. “Uh, actually, he threw the ball, so it was an incomplete pass.”

  17. golonger says: Nov 20, 2012 10:12 AM

    “The Redskins are the best team in the NFC as far as I’m concerned. RGIII best QB in professional football at this point and time.”

    This post wins the award for funniest AND most dellusional. RGIII is so over-rated it isn’t even funny. Colin K for the Niners is LIGHT years ahead of him. RGIII is running a flag football style offense, cannot read defenses and is not growing and he wont under this coach.

  18. logicalvoicesays says: Nov 20, 2012 10:16 AM

    Everyone thumbing my last comment down is jealous that Robert Griffin isn’t their favorite team’s QB. Get over it.

  19. ravenator says: Nov 20, 2012 10:20 AM

    Ravens deserve to be ranked higher. Steelers deserve to be lower.

  20. geniusfan says: Nov 20, 2012 10:23 AM

    “Rob Gronkowski was more likely to break an arm spiking the football than serving on the PAT team.”

    Agree 100% with this. It was a fluke injury nothing more. Gronkowski will be back sometime in December or for the playoffs as well so it’s not all that bad. Obviously I don’t want Gronk to ever get injured but in the event that he does i’d rather have Gronk have a forearm fracture than a high ankle sprain like Hernandez had he’s been ineffective since week 2!

    A lot of people are just using this as a way to attack Belichick because they just don’t like him. Sure you can hide behind the facade of “karmic retribution” and morality but in the end it’s just petty jealousy.

  21. homelanddefense says: Nov 20, 2012 10:24 AM

    First let me say Im a Patriots fan……but I have a problem with them being ranked as high as #3. I could make an argument that they arent even the #3 team in the AFC right now.

    At worst I would have Hou, SF, and Balt ahead of them in the power rankings….and even though the Pats beat Denver you might have to slide them ahead of New England too.

  22. geniusfan says: Nov 20, 2012 10:28 AM

    “They have two very tough games left against Houston and San Fran (albeit both at home), and could face another early playoff exit without their two best offensive targets.”

    Hernandez is probably coming back this week and Gronk is (reportedly) definitely going to be ready for the playoffs. I know you’re not a Patriots fan but you should at least know the facts before spouting off nonsense.

    And “another early playoff exit” ? Last year they made the Super Bowl. Unless you’re a Giants fan the Patriots did better than your team. The Ravens did beat the Patriots earlier this year (with assistance from the scab refs) but since then they’ve been woefully average for the most part. Flacco is just a guy and with a defense that’s ranked worse than the Patriots in multiple categories the Ravens may be in for another playoff run without making the Super Bowl.

  23. raiderufan says: Nov 20, 2012 10:29 AM

    Carson Palmer is on pace for 4,800+ yards and 30+ TD’s. This with a RB that CANNOT run in the ZBS and never having the same fleet of WR’s healthy per week…..oh and he’s back in Cali.

    I think he’s pretty happy considering….not saying our ranking should be better, frankly I’m surprised it’s not worse, but he’s at the helm of an offense he has to be pretty excited about for the next 2-3 years.

    He also gets to be on the sideline watching our D so, yeah, he might be a little depressed but….

  24. jbaxt says: Nov 20, 2012 10:34 AM

    I wish I could be the GM for the Chiefs. Where you can be 1-9 and have no accountability. Lamar must be so proud what his son has turned this team into. Can’t wait until his 5th year, when we’ll be 5 years into the rebuilding process.

  25. greasygoat says: Nov 20, 2012 10:36 AM

    It sucks being a fan of a team (Raiders) that whenever you check a list of power rankings you immediately start scrolling way down because your team is ALWAYS listed at the bottom because they always suck. My mouse wheel is about to fall off.

    Browns, Jags and Chief fans would probably agree.

  26. dxtheking says: Nov 20, 2012 10:37 AM

    Colts: Somewhere, Peyton Manning is saying, “I never lost by 35 at New England.”
    No, but he lost by 31 in his 4th season in the NFL in route to a 6-10 record in 2001.
    Colts were very much in that game in the first half. Andrew struggled in the second half and the pats made them pay and ran it up on them. Maybe in four years from now when Brady is gone, Luck will run it up on them.

  27. tcmiller30 says: Nov 20, 2012 10:39 AM

    Ya.. Because beating the Colts is really as daunting as you make it sound. They have one impressive win (GB) this season and have squeak out victories against Cleveland, Miami, Tennessee, and Minnesota. They’ve been manhandled by the Jets, Pats, and Chicago.

    And in case you’ve forgotten. The 1-9 Jags got their lone win in Indy.

  28. terry4505 says: Nov 20, 2012 10:45 AM

    Seriously, with the shots at the Buccaneers fanbase.

    How about some analysis about Josh Freeman being the 10th ranked passer in the game.

    Best run D in the league.

    Winners of four in a row.

    What stupid comment will you make when they beat Atlanta this week?

  29. asublimeday says: Nov 20, 2012 10:47 AM

    I feel bad for the Vikings. The Bears have a lot of anger and that defense is going to absolutely crush next week.

  30. shackdelrio says: Nov 20, 2012 10:49 AM

    “12. Buccaneers: With the surging Bucs struggling to sell out against the 9-1 Falcons, it’s hard not to wonder whether they could fill up a stadium even if the tickets were free.”

    For the record, the Jaguars (1-9) are averaging 63k a game, which is 21st in the league. The Buccaneers (6-4) are averaging 53k a game, which is last in the league. So wait…which team is moving???

  31. rockybev35 says: Nov 20, 2012 10:55 AM

    @tonyarnold2:

    Not sure if you remember three weeks ago, head to head, 42-13: Texans over the Ravens??
    What’s ridiculous is Flacco on the road. Dude is wildly inconsistant. Texans laid an egg on Sunday and won. They obviously were not ready to play. Yep, took them into overtime, missed a FG that would have won it in regulation but it is what it is…a win.

    When we met you without Webb and us without Cushing, me thinks Cush matters more to us than Webb to you (I’m leaving out Ray on purpose because is not the same player he used to be)- we killed you guys. We controlled the clock, ran it down your throats and had Flacco so rattled he could not complete a 10 yard pass.

    If you think the Ravens, by winning a few games should somehow be ranked higher, come on man?

    Good thing is: we can meet again in the Tourny!!
    In Houston of course and we all know how Flacco plays away from Baltmore.

    Power rankings mean nothing but coming from a fan whose team was spanked by ours…settle down with your confusion on power rankings.

    Packers should be ranked higher if anything. When Rogers is on his game, they are unbeatable.

  32. thetokyosandblaster says: Nov 20, 2012 11:00 AM

    How does the team with the longest winning streak while missing several key players drop 2 spots?

    Looks like some people have their heads in Brady’s lap.

  33. strokeytheclown says: Nov 20, 2012 11:02 AM

    OK, so the Buccaneers are not selling out their stadium. They are on a five game win streak. On the field, their power ranking should be going up. If no one showed up at all, and they had the same momentum, their power is for real. Note to the sportswriters: SHUT THE HELL UP!

  34. nelly837 says: Nov 20, 2012 11:04 AM

    Hey Clark Hunt I hope you are reading this. Just think how proud your dad would be of you knowing that he left his legacy in your hands. Give the chiefs fans some glimmer of hope and don’t wait until the end of the season to fire EVERYONE in the Chiefs management and coaching positions so we at least know that you aren’t going to sit on your ass and do nothing this off season and trust your football guru Pioli to right this sinking ship. You have taken the fan base of the Chiefs for granted too f@cking long and your automatic sellouts every weekend are coming to an end. Also please, please DO NOT waste our first round draft pick on Matt Barkley or Geno Smith who are at best 2nd or 3rd round talent. They are just waiting to be the next Todd Blackledge.

  35. rockybev35 says: Nov 20, 2012 11:05 AM

    Oh…And the Ravens, let’s be honest- beat a Byron, not the Steelers..
    They did not beat Ben. They beat a dude who winced after he ran untouched for a 30 yard TD.
    Is that really a measure of how good the Ravens are or a measure of a Steeler team in need of their leader to get healthy?

    Hate ridiculous logic. Head to Head matters.
    Also, we are in the NFL. All if takes for a good team to get beat by a “bad” one is focus or the lesser team playing with nothing to lose.
    That said, a win is a win. Schaub 527 yrds passing, AJ 327 yrds receiving. In the end, our D made a crucial stop and 2 plays later AJ caught a screen and took it to the house.

    Phins fans can attest to this I bet:
    When has Chad Henne ever played like Joe Montana? Texans knocked Gabbert out, worst possible deal. It was like the second coming of Frank Reich, Buffalo circa 1992. The dude came in and played the BEST game he ever has as a pro.
    Texans won, just like the did when they clowned Baltimore.

  36. phillycheez says: Nov 20, 2012 11:06 AM

    My first thought was that my hapless Eagles should be ranked somewhere in the 30’s. But I gotta tell ya, seeing the Jets ranked several spots higher really depressed me.

  37. getyourownname says: Nov 20, 2012 11:35 AM

    Niners nd prbably the Packers should be ahead of Falcons; Broncos ahead of both Pats (#3? really) and Ravens (you should never feel bad about beating Steelers at Pburgh, they still play defense and it’s a tough out any time). Saints and Bucs coming on, too, I wold take either over Seattle right now.

  38. sportsguybayarea says: Nov 20, 2012 11:39 AM

    Yes the niners got beat up at MIN and got killed by the Giants and also tied to the Rams but this is the NFL and even the best of em lose or have off days (texans/falcons) but when they meet bad teams they absolutely destroy them. When they’re playing at their best I believe no team can beat them. Still the best defense in the league (1st in points allowed) have allowed 7 points or less in 5 of their wins. Have 3 (or 4?) shut outs. When it’s all said and done the niners will be the best team in the league and will have the Lombardi trophy. They should of won it last year. And to all of you that thought that they were a fluke last year and said they would come back to earth this year with a record of 9-7 or 8-8, don’t look now but they are here to stay for years to come. Keep on hating ppl. Niners are back! No Cinderella story by the bay. Bring on the red hot Saints!!

  39. bobbyhoying says: Nov 20, 2012 11:56 AM

    Eagles at 27? Are you kidding me? We’re definitely worth a ranking in the 30’s. Wouldn’t it be cool if Chris Berman’s Super Bowl pick finished the season at #32?

  40. ccoolahan14 says: Nov 20, 2012 12:07 PM

    Should the Steelers feel good or bad about losing at home to the Ravens, who were without the best defensive player in history, one of the best cornerbacks in the league, the second best cornerback on the team, and both starting DTs?

    Oh, and since 2009, here’s the Flacco vs. Roethlisberger comparison:

    Flacco vs. Steelers (7 games): 138/236 (58.5%), 232 yds/game, 10TDs, 3 INTs , 88.5 QB Rating

    Roethlisberger vs. Ravens (5 games): 100/181 (55.2%), 269 yds/game, 6 TDs, 6 INTs, 77.4 QB Rating

    Flacco is better in this series than Roethlisberger. The media needs justification for how the Steelers ever win (when the reason is obviously the biased officiating), so they perpetuate the myth that Roethlisberger outplays Flacco, which is obviously completely false.

  41. geniusfan says: Nov 20, 2012 12:22 PM

    “At worst I would have Hou, SF, and Balt ahead of them in the power rankings….and even though the Pats beat Denver you might have to slide them ahead of New England too.”

    Based off what? The Patriots beat Denver. In a game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated. Even saying what I did about the Ravens they deserve to be ranked ahead of the Patriots because they beat them.

    I’ve said this once and I’ll say it again there is no pleasing some Patriots fans. They are the number one offense in the NFL and it’s not even close, the Broncos have scored 301 points the Patriots have scored 57 more than that. The defense has the potential to improve with Talib in the fold.

    I just don’t get the negativity some Patriots fans have towards their team. I’m not saying they’re the best but they have just as good of a shot as anybody does in the AFC to get to New Orleans in February.

    Once again just like last week, the only thing you can manage to say about the #9 Seahawks is about a game over two months ago. They have played games since then and I can imagine there are some other aspects of the team to say something about.

    Lets move on, any number of games, plays and bad calls since then will have affected playoff seedings just the same.

  45. steel187 says: Nov 20, 2012 1:22 PM

    “Based off what? The Patriots beat Denver. In a game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated.

    Wrong. Yes the Pats started out with a 31-7 lead but the Broncos stormed back and was a fumble awary from making it a 3 point game. Lots of teams lose to teams they shouldn’t and that doesn’t make them better over the season just that game. That being said I would put the Pats ahead of the Broncos but don’t throw statements out there that are not entirely true.

    ________________________________
    While I don’t think the Redskins are anywhere near the best team in the NFC and RGIII isn’t quite the best QB yet, saying he’s overrated and Colin K is light years ahead is just hating.

    Colin K is good, but RG3 is currently 5th in the league in QB rating and 6th in completion % with only 3 INTs (Luck had 3 on Sunday). That’s without his #1 WR all year and #1 TE for half the year. Oh yeah and he’s got 700 yards and 6 rushing TDs.

    And before you argue that all he does is check it down, he’s 4th in the league in yards/attempt.

    Saying he’s playing a “flag football offense and won’t improve” is just dumb. He’s 10 games into his career and running a zone read hybrid offense where he has about 4 different ways he can go AFTER the snap.

  47. taintedsaints2009 says: Nov 20, 2012 1:57 PM

    If the bears need a morale booster, they always get it playing the Vikings. False hope in my opinion. The Vikings just don’t know how to win in Chicago, and they will let the bears go ballistic. The bears are not even the third best team in their division. Truly an awful awful football team and its just dumb luck they won more than 2 games.

    ____________________________
    This isn’t College football, margin of victory means absolutely nothing. Who are you trying to impress by putting down the Colts anyway? Everyone and their mother had them winning three games or less. Ten games in they sit at 6-4, granted the Jax loss was bad, but that was a fluke play at the end of regulation. Those things happens with young teams. On the other hand the Patriots were thought by many to be the best team coming into the season. Some experts had them going undefeated. So tell me, what is more embarrassing the Colts exceeding all expectations, or the Patriots falling short of expectations?

    In case you’ve forgotten the Pats lost to the Cardinals at home.

  49. jason9696 says: Nov 20, 2012 2:27 PM

    It really hurts me to say this. But the Patriots are the best team in the NFL right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if they won out even though they have two tough games against the Texans and the 49ers remaining. Both at home however.

  50. packerstexansfan says: Nov 20, 2012 2:39 PM

    7. Packers: Five straight wins, and the Packers are looking a lot like the team that won 15 in 2011.

    No, they’re looking better. They have an actual defense that doesn’t rely on only turnovers

  51. dvdman123 says: Nov 20, 2012 2:45 PM

    The best team in football doesn’t reside in Houston,Atlanta,Foxboro,Baltimore or Green Bayl. It’s in Denver, Colorado. Especially in the Texans and Falcons case. You don’t barely win in OT to the worst (Jaguars)team in football at home and just say it’s a bump on the road we’ll be fine. You don’t barely beat a tail spinning Cardinals with a back up to a back up QB at home. Remember this is the same Falcon team that struggled to beat the Raiders at home earlier this season.

    While I think these rankings are meaningless, it cracks me up reading Broncos and Raven fan cracking on the Texans.

    Ummmmm. Scoreboard?

    What cracks me up is all these smack talking texans fans/players acting like they have actually won something more than 1 playoff game. Tell you what, win a SuperBowl before you start to jabber.

    I like the Bucs turn around this season but think many rankings (like this one) have them too high. Their wins have mostly come against weak teams. Two wins over the Panthers (miracle come back in OT Sunday), Chiefs, Chargers, and Raiders. Wow crown ‘em.

    They even loss to the Cowboys which says something about them too.

    Dvdman-
    Did you forget the Texans did beat the apparently “best team in football” Broncos in Denver?

    “So when does Carson Palmer ask why did you trade for me?”
    That is perfect … Raiders would be 0-10 without him.

    Putting a single AFC team in the top 5 is laughable. The AFC is weak compared to the NFC. The Superbowl this year will be the NFC championship.

    Not even close to being right! Pretty sure the NFC has the lead in the record this year so far. What is your logic for this untrue statement?
