NFL Rankings: Week 11


Another week, another unbeaten falling from the ranks.  This time it was the Bengals, who had seemed to be a true juggernaut before the Texans simply put the brakes on them.  It will be interesting to see how the Bengals respond as neither the Packers or Broncos were able to recover this week, extending their losing to three and two games respectively.  As long as unbeatens keep losing, the NFL rankings are going to get a shake up at the top every week.

Our biggest riser this week is the Washington Redskins who put an absolute hurting on the Saints.  Enough so to get Rob Ryan fired as the defensive coordinator in New Orleans.  The big tumble belongs to those very same New Orleans Saints as they were unable to stop a nosebleed, and simply could muster nothing offensively.

The Chiefs also made a big move this week.  They rose four spots after beating the Denver Broncos on the road in a one-sided affair.  You could make the argument that they should have moved up more, but it’s tough to argue they belong ahead of the teams currently listed in front of them.
