NFL Power Rankings Week 11 | What Are the Latest Team Power Rankings 2021

Last Updated: Nov 16, 2021

We had several big upsets in Week 10, with three NFC powerhouses losing. So naturally, that is going to cause some major changes in the top of our power rankings. So without further ado, let’s look at who had the biggest rise and fall of the week!

All playoff lines and odds used in the NFL power rankings series are provided by Twinspries Sportsbook and are current as of Tuesday, November 16 at 2:00 p.m. ET.

NFL Power Rankings for Week 11

32. Detroit Lions (0-8-1) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: N/A
  • Super Bowl Odds: +750000

The Lions didn’t lose on Sunday! Their tie against the Steelers was one of the worst-played games of the season. What was painfully clear in that game is that Jared Goff isn’t the answer for Detroit, and they must find a way to upgrade that position next year.

31. Houston Texans (1-8) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: N/A
  • Super Bowl Odds: +750000

The Texans were on a bye in Week 10, so there is no movement in their ranking. It will be fascinating to see if the extra week off has helped Tyrod Taylor and his hamstring, as this team needs him to play better to be somewhat competitive.

30. New York Jets (2-7) ⬇️ 2

  • Playoffs Odds: N/A
  • Super Bowl Odds: +100000

The Mike White mania in New York is officially over as he threw four interceptions and no touchdowns in Week 10. Teams have started to get a beat on him, and his inability to throw the ball down the field is a problem.

Look for Zach Wilson to reenter the lineup soon. But the biggest problem for New York is their defense, as they have allowed 175 points over the last four games. Yikes.

29. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: N/A
  • Super Bowl Odds: +100000

You have to give Urban Meyer credit. His team has played much better over the last month, and this has been a competitive team nearly every week. Trevor Lawrence is still struggling, but he isn’t getting much help from his receivers either.

Jacksonville is still a long way away, but we are starting to see some legitimate signs of improvement.

28. Miami Dolphins (3-7) ⬆️ 2

  • Playoffs Odds: +1700
  • Super Bowl Odds: +50000

The defense for the Dolphins finally looks like what we saw last season. Their performance against the Ravens was spectacular, and the play of the secondary was unbelievable.

It’s probably too late for this team to make a run at the playoffs, but it will be interesting to see if they can continue this positive momentum over the final two months of the season.

27. Atlanta Falcons (4-5) ⬇️ 8

  • Playoffs Odds: +385
  • Super Bowl Odds: +22500

The Falcons are the most difficult team in the league to figure out. Last week, Atlanta upset the Saints in New Orleans, and Matt Ryan looked fantastic. This week, the Ryan-led offense never converted a third down and scored just three points against Dallas.

The game was over by midway through the second quarter, and the lack of speed for the Falcons was painfully evident. Atlanta is oddly still in the playoff hunt in the NFC, but this isn’t a good team at all.

26. Seattle Seahawks (3-6) ⬇️ 4

  • Playoffs Odds: +385
  • Super Bowl Odds: +10000

Russell Wilson returned to the lineup for the Seahawks, and it did not matter on Sunday. The offense did not score, and Wilson was off all day long. Seattle’s defense has certainly improved over the year, but the offense has not.

With another loss or two, the Seahawks will be out of the NFC Wild Card hunt.

25. New York Giants (3-6) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: +1300
  • Super Bowl Odds: +35000

The Giants were on a bye in Week 10 and are set to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. Can they be the second NFC East team to upset the Super Bowl champions this season?

24. Carolina Panthers (5-5) ⬆️ 2

  • Playoffs Odds: +350
  • Super Bowl Odds: +15000

Cam Newton is back in Carolina, and the Panthers are in the Wild Card race in the NFC. But will Newton be a stable enough option to help the Panthers win over the next few months? That remains to be seen.

23. Washington Football Team (3-6) ⬆️ 4

  • Playoffs Odds: +1000
  • Super Bowl Odds: +100000

The Washington Football Team got an impressive win at home against the Buccaneers in Week 10, but it was costly. Star defensive end Chase Young will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, and their pass rush is no longer a big threat.

Washington is technically still alive in the NFC, but making the playoffs without Young is certainly a longshot.

22. Philadelphia Eagles (4-6) ⬆️ 2

  • Playoffs Odds: +250
  • Super Bowl Odds: +15000

You have to give credit to Jalen Hurts and the Eagles. They’ve looked much better over the last few weeks, and it is partially due to their rushing attack. They are forcing teams to stop the run and then using play-action to create chunk plays in the passing game.

The Eagles are a team that could be a bit of a sleeper in the Wild Card race if they can begin to stack some wins.

21. Chicago Bears (3-6) ⬇️ 1

  • Playoffs Odds: +1600
  • Super Bowl Odds: +60000

The Bears were on a bye in Week 10, but there is a lot to be excited about with this team going forward. Justin Fields is getting better by the week, and the offense is finally starting to click.

It’s probably too late for them to make a playoff run, but the final seven games should be a lot of fun to watch in Chicago.

20. San Francisco 49ers (4-5) ⬆️ 3

  • Playoffs Odds: +180
  • Super Bowl Odds: +5000

The season was on the line for the 49ers in Week 10, and they had their most impressive outing of the year on Monday Night Football. The defense dominated, holding the Rams to just 10 points. But it was the offense that was clicking as Deebo Samuel and George Kittle carried them to victory.

With a relatively easy schedule coming up, the 49ers are legit contenders to make the NFC playoffs.

Bet Tip: The 49ers could easily win 11 games this season, given how soft their schedule is to finish the year. At +180, take the 49ers to make the playoffs as they ride their positive momentum from Week 10.

19. Denver Broncos (5-5) ⬇️ 1

  • Playoffs Odds: +275
  • Super Bowl Odds: +10000

The Broncos dominated the Cowboys (in Dallas) in Week 9 and then laid an egg in Week 10 against the Eagles (in Denver). It’s tough to figure out this team, but they aren’t legit contenders in the AFC due to the inconsistent quarterback play.

18. Cleveland Browns (5-5) ⬇️ 7

  • Playoffs Odds: +127
  • Super Bowl Odds: +4000

The Browns have now allowed three teams to score 40 or more points on them this season. The defense is a major issue, and all of the injuries aren’t helping. After a postseason run in 2020, it appears the Browns will miss the playoffs this year after a rough start.

17. Minnesota Vikings (4-5) ⬆️ 4

  • Playoffs Odds: +140
  • Super Bowl Odds: +8000

The Vikings got an impressive win in Week 10 over the Chargers, and it was due to their offense. Justin Jefferson had a monster day, and their rushing attack was productive and efficient. Minnesota will host the Packers in Week 11 in a critical NFC North showdown.

16. Cincinnati Bengals (5-4) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: +140
  • Super Bowl Odds: +6000

The Bengals were on bye in Week 10, but they are set to play the Raiders in Las Vegas in Week 11. That game is huge for both teams, as the loser would fall to 5-5 and way out of the Wild Card race in the AFC. This isn’t quite a must-win game for the Bengals, but it’s close.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3-1) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: +145
  • Super Bowl Odds: +6000

It doesn’t feel right to move the Steelers up on our list after their tie with the Lions. But their 5-3-1 record is good enough for the No. 5 seed right now in the AFC.

Pittsburgh’s defense is elite, and that will keep them in games. However, can they outscore good teams when it matters? That remains to be seen.

14. Las Vegas Raiders (5-4) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: +170
  • Super Bowl Odds: +8000

After a 5-2 start, the Raiders find themselves struggling in November once again. The defense did not play well in Week 10 despite Maxx Crosby totaling 13 pressures on the edge. If the Raiders can’t become more consistent on offense, they will have a hard time beating good teams down the stretch.

13. Los Angeles Chargers (5-4) ⬇️ 4

  • Playoffs Odds: -225
  • Super Bowl Odds: +3000

After a hot start to the season, the Chargers have really fallen off in the AFC. Justin Herbert has regressed, and the offense isn’t dynamic or creative. The Chargers also have the league’s worst run defense, and it’s starting to catch up with them.

They will host the Steelers on Sunday Night Football in Week 11, and that will be a high-leverage game for both teams in the AFC Wild Card race.

12. New Orleans Saints (5-4) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: -139
  • Super Bowl Odds: +6000

The Saints played the Titans incredibly well in Week 10 without Alvin Kamara. That was a coinflip game in which the Saints easily could have won on the road. However, don’t be surprised if Sean Payton uses more of Taysom Hill over the next few months to bring more playmaking into the offense.

11. Indianapolis Colts (5-5) ⬆️ 6

  • Playoffs Odds: +145
  • Super Bowl Odds: +6600

The Colts can be very tough to stop on offense when they are running the ball. Jonathan Taylor might be the best running back in the NFL, and Nyhiem Hines is a fantastic compliment given his receiving ability and home-run speed.

Carson Wentz needs to play better, but this version of the Colts is what many expected much earlier in the season.

10. Kansas City Chiefs (6-4) ⬆️ 3

  • Playoffs Odds: -400
  • Super Bowl Odds: +1000

The Chiefs are back. Maybe? They looked fantastic against the Raiders, as the offense totaled over 500 yards and scored 41 points. But the story of that game was their defensive line. With Chris Jones back at defensive tackle, they finally have a pass rush that can harass opposing quarterbacks.

9. Baltimore Ravens (6-3) ⬇️ 3

  • Playoffs Odds: -560
  • Super Bowl Odds: +1300

The Ravens looked awful on Thursday Night Football as they couldn’t handle the blitz of the Dolphins. However, it’s not time to panic about Baltimore just yet as Thursday games, especially on the road, can be difficult.

Still, this is a flawed team in which Lamar Jackson has to play like the league MVP to give the Ravens a chance to compete with good teams in the conference.

8. New England Patriots (6-4) ⬆️ 2

  • Playoffs Odds: -230
  • Super Bowl Odds: +2500

Over the last month, the Patriots have arguably been the second-most impressive AFC team behind the Titans. They dominated the Chargers and Browns, and the defense looks like it’s an elite unit once again. But more importantly, Mac Jones is getting better by the week.

This is a sure-fire playoff team that could do some damage in the AFC.

7. Buffalo Bills (6-3) ⬆️ 1

  • Playoffs Odds: -3335
  • Super Bowl Odds: +550

Of all the teams in the AFC, the Bills have the highest ceiling. When Josh Allen is on, they might just be the most complete team in the league. It’s just too bad we don’t see that version of the team often enough.

The defense has been incredibly good over the last few weeks, and that does give us hope that we could see the Bills get back to an elite level.

6. Los Angeles Rams (7-3) ⬇️ 1

  • Playoffs Odds: -1430
  • Super Bowl Odds: +800

The Rams have now looked awful in back-to-back primetime games. Matthew Stafford has struggled, but it’s the offensive line that isn’t holding up. They could be in a bit of trouble now that Robert Woods is gone as he was an outstanding receiver and blocker in Sean McVay’s offense.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-3) ⬇️ 1

  • Playoffs Odds: -3335
  • Super Bowl Odds: +600

It’s now been back-to-back weeks that the Buccaneers have looked disjointed on offense. The defense is a work in progress, but the offensive woes are the most concerning. Still, we know this is a team that can be dangerous in the playoffs because of their quarterback and their weapons. It’s not time to panic just yet.

4. Dallas Cowboys (7-2) ⬆️ 3

  • Playoffs Odds: -10000
  • Super Bowl Odds: +1000

After an embarrassing loss to the Bronco in Week 9, the Cowboys showed why they are a legit Super Bowl contender in 2021-2022. They scored 29 points in the second quarter against the Falcons, which was a franchise record.

This is the most explosive offense in the NFL, and they have a defense that can create turnovers in bunches.

3. Tennessee Titans (8-2) ↔️

  • Playoffs Odds: -10000
  • Super Bowl Odds: +1100

I don’t know how they continue to do it, but the Titans are just finding ways to win. Their defense dominated again in Week 10, and the offense was able to make enough plays to get by.

If the Titans can get Julio Jones back for the playoffs, they will be very difficult for anyone in the AFC to beat.

2. Arizona Cardinals (8-2) ⬇️ 1

  • Playoffs Odds: -5000
  • Super Bowl Odds: +1000

It’s tough to knock the Cardinals down too much here after their Week 10 loss to the Panthers. They were without Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins once again, and they were unable to overcome it this time. This is still one of the best teams in the league, and you can make a case they belong at No. 1.

1. Green Bay Packers (8-2) ⬆️ 1

  • Playoffs Odds: -10000
  • Super Bowl Odds: +900

Aaron Rodgers is back, and the Packers keep stacking wins. The No. 1 seed looks like a near-lock for Green Bay in the NFC, and it’s because of their defense. They allowed a combined 13 points to Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson in consecutive weeks. Not bad.
