Power Rankings: Week 11, the invincible Titans take the driver’s seat

On the 10th Sunday of the season, it may not have had as many surprises as in Week 9, but still several results were presented that defied the logic that alters the directions of the AFC and NFC starting the second leg of the campaign.

For the second week in a row, four or more teams (teams, Carolina, Miami, Minnesota, Washington and San Francisco), they entered the week with a winning percentage of .500 or less and defeated a team that started the week first or tied for first in their division.

Every NFL game is like watching the entire Rocky saga.

The surprises started Thursday night and ended Monday night. A whole journey that included seeing the defeat of the Buccaneers champions against WFT.

The sort order of the Power Ranking was shaken again in such a way that the Titans rebounded to the top position.

1.- Tennessee Titans (8-2)

The week before: 2

With an agonizing victory over the Saints, the Titans became the second team to win five straight games against opponents who reached the postseason the previous year. They joined the Eagles in 2003. Tennessee doesn’t care about the beauty of their performances, only about succeeding.

2.- Green Bay Packers (8-2)

The week before: 4

Aaron Rodgers took the balls back under center and the Packers won again, a welcome return to normality for Green Bay after a tumultuous couple of weeks.

3.- Arizona Cardinals (8-2)

The week before: 1

The Cardinals entered Week 10 with the best record in the NFL, but Colt McCoy, who played a second straight game for the injured Kyler Murray, couldn’t keep up his offensive pulse against the Panthers.

4.- Dallas Cowboys (7-2)

The week before: 7

After their worst game of the season, the Cowboys passed the Falcons with a view more like what they taught earlier in the season. At halftime against Atlanta they went to the locker room (36-3), the biggest advantage since 1971.

5.- Buffalo Bills (6-3)

Last week: 8

The Bills are such a big unknown that sometimes they seem to be not as good as we thought, some weeks they are overrated and other times they are apparently contenders. But there they are.

6.- Los Angeles Rams (7-3)

Last week: 3

The Rams lost for the second straight week to Matthew Stafford once again throwing two interceptions, including one for a touchdown.

7.- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-3)

Last week: 6

Tom Brady was intercepted twice in his first six passes. He was unable to command a winning offense late in the game and they lost surprisingly to Washington.

8.- Baltimore Ravens (6-3)

Last week: 5

Baltimore’s streak of 51 regular-season games with at least 14 points came to an end against the Fins. Surprise defeat against one of the worst teams in the AFC and the NFL.

9.- Kansas City Chiefs (6-4)

Last week: 10

Patrick Mahomes threw five touchdown passes and returned to the form we know him after a shaky stretch this season, as the Chiefs edged the Las Vegas Raiders.

10.- New England Patriots (6-4)

Last week: 13

Four weeks ago, the Patriots were flying under the radar at 2-4 and looked headed for a losing season. Now, they are still without great spotlight but they returned as postseason contenders in the AFC with rookie Mac Jones commanding the offense.

11.- Los Angeles Chargers (5-4)

Last week: 9

They have lost three of their last four. Justin Herbert completed 20 of 34 passes for 195 yards with a touchdown and interception against Minnesota. The team does not achieve stability.

12.- Las Vegas Raiders (5-4)

Last week: 11

The defense couldn’t stop Mahomes, but the worst thing for the Raiders is that they have lost back-to-back games after a promising start to the season. The team suffers from problems on and off the field.

13.- Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3-1)

Last week: 14

The Steelers stopped their four-game winning streak, but their four-game losing streak remains. They tied with the Lions. Pittsburgh did not have its cornerstone Ben Roethlisberger who is on the Covid-19 list.

14.- New Orleans Saints (5-4)

Last week: 12

The Saints lost their second straight game after the season-long injury loss of their starting quarterback, Jameis Winston with an ACL injury.

15.- Indianapolis Colts (5-5)

Last week: 17

Carson Wentz completed 22 of 34 with 180 yards, but was without a TD pass for the first time in seven games. Indianapolis is 9-0 when Jonathan Taylor rushes for 100 yards

16.- Cincinnati Bengals (5-4)

Last week: 16

Bye week where they saw the Ravens, Browns and the Steelers tie fall. Nothing bad.

17.- Cleveland Brown (5-5)

Last week: 15

Playing without star running back Nick Chubb, who missed the game after a positive Covid test, the Browns were limited to 217 total yards and were 1 of 11 at third down against the Patriots.

18.- San Francisco 49ers (4-5)

Last week: 20

The 49ers had lost four of five games and were in danger of being out of playoff possibilities early. They achieved a quality win against the Rams.

19.- Minnesota Vikings (4-5)

Last week: 22

The Vikings bounced back from two losses in a row by few points. This campaign, the five defeats have been by a total of 18 points. It is a team that fights.

20.- Carolina Panthers (5-5)

Last week: 23

Cam Newton returned to the team where he became known and led the Panthers to a victory over the Cardinals, who were until Week 10, the best record in the entire NFL.

21.- Denver Broncos (5-5)

Last week: 19

The Broncos had hoped to reach their bye week at 6-4 and in the middle of the AFC West race, in an attempt to end a long playoff drought, but fell to the Eagles.

22.- Philadelphia Eagles (4-6)

Last week: 25

Rookie DeVonta Smith had two touchdown catches in connection with Jalen Hurts and the Eagles rushed for 214 yards. It was his fourth away win.

23.- Atlanta Falcons (4-5)

Last week: 21

It’s a difficult team for many to understand, but not for the Cowboys who beat them in two quarters.

24.- New York Giants (3-6)

Last week: 24

The team had a bye week looking to get out of the injuries that have afflicted them

25.- Seattle Seahawks (3-6)

Last week: 18

The Seahawks had not been shut out since losing 24-0 to the Steelers on September 18, 2011. The Packers delivered a massive blow.

26.- Washington Football Team (3-6)

Last week: 28

They beat the champions, but lost NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year Chase Young to a right knee injury in the first half. It doesn’t seem like a fair deal.

27.- Chicago Bears (3-6)

Last week: 26

The Bears took the weekend off.

28.- Miami Dolphins (3-7)

Last week: 29

With three field goals from Jason Sanders and great play from their defense, the Dolphins defeated the Ravens for their second win in a row.

29.- Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7)

Last week: 27

Rookie Trevor Lawrence was 3 of 14 with 56 yards in the first half and 16 of 35 with 162 yards. Anemic numbers to compete for victory.

30.- New York Jets (2-7)

Last week: 30

Another blow to the hearts of New Yorkers. The team has no defense, well, it doesn’t really have a lot of things.

31.- Houston Texans (1-8)

Last week: 31

They did not play and thanks to that they could not sink any more.

32.- Detroit Lions (0-8-1)

Last week: 32

They won’t become the 0-17 first team, but they still hold onto a winless chance the year after drawing with the Steelers.
