NFL Power Rankings, Week 11: Chiefs rest and win in wild week

The Chiefs had a bye week and we still watched a lot of football. In a fantastic turn of events, there were som big-time losses that benefited the Chiefs in a big way. We discuss all 32 teams.

25. Denver Broncos (3-5)

Last Week: 27 (+2)

The Broncos are ascending for sure. A few weeks ago, the Broncos were giving up 70 points to the Dolphins. Now, they are taking on and defeating the Bills in Buffalo. I don't believe that Denver is going to be able to turn this into a playoff run. I do believe, however, that they may now finish second or third in the AFC West, which would have seemed crazy a few weeks ago.

26. Los Angeles Rams (3-6)

Last Week: 25 (-1)


27. Arizona Cardinals (2-8)

Last Week: 30 (+3)

Arizona gets Kyler Murray back and immediately wins a football game. Perhaps it was too early to write him off for next season? The Cardinals are bad, but they are not the worst. There are quite a few teams that I would pick after the Cardinals at this point in the season.

28. Green Bay Packers (3-6)

Last Week: 29 (+1)

The Packers put up a good fight against the Steelers, but it wasn't enough. Things are not going their way and I don't think that Jordan Love is the long-term solution. They are not an organization known for bold offseason moves, but they could use some this year.

29. Chicago Bears (3-6)

Last Week: 28 (-1)

The Bears beat the Panthers, which officially means that the Panthers are atrocious. Tyler Bagent may have just played his last down as the Bears starter, but he will be a name that hangs around in this league for a long time. He has at least proven that he is a capable backup. This year is over, but the Bears have some pieces.

30. New England Patriots (2-8)

Last Week: 26 (-4)

The Patriots are finished. Rumor has it that Bill Belichick might be packing his bags at the end of the year. All of a sudden, the Patriots could be a very different looking team. No matter how you slice it, the changes need to be made. The Patriots are bad everywhere. They could be the least talented team in the NFL.

31. New York Giants (2-8)

Last Week: 31 (-)

Yikes. I would say something clever about the Cowboys beating bad teams, but I can't even put on a smile about the Giants any more. Why do I keep watching them? I am going to ban the Giants from my television until next season.

32. Carolina Panthers (1-8)

Last Week: 32 (-)

What in the world do you do about the Panthers? No one is good. Bryce Young is inferior to CJ Stroud and no one can block for him. Further, the team looks like it is lightyears away from playoff contention. Everything is bad. Really, really bad.
