Pro Football Weekly’s Power Rankings are updated every Tuesday during the NFL’s regular season and intended to rank teams based on their talent and performance to date. Rankings will change each week because of personnel changes, injuries and performance, and a team’s ranking in any given week has no impact on where they might rank in weeks to come. Rankings will fluctuate a great deal more the first few weeks of the season as teams seek their levels and schedules balance out. These are PFW’s Power Rankings entering Week 11 of the 2019 season.
Rank / Team / The Skinny
1. Saints (7-2): While clunker against Falcons was due, their body of work still league's most impressive.
2. Ravens (7-2): Lamar is out of control, but how about the harnessing of Marcus Peters, who has two pick-sixes in 3 games with Ravens.
3. Patriots (8-1): Movember? Newcomer Mohamed Sanu the bright spot in Baltimore loss, looking almost too good to be Sanu in Pats offense.
4. Seahawks (8-2): Russ was Russ in slaying Niners but no one was more giant than Jadeveon Clowney.
5. 49ers (8-1): Focus will be on the missed kick but how many chances did Jimmy G's receivers drop to stay undefeated?
6. Packers (8-2): Win entering the bye vs. surging Panthers with Rodgers not at his picturesque like Lambeau snow globe for Pack's playoff outlook.
7. Vikings (7-3): How do you like that, Kirk Cousins critics? A primetime victory on the road without Thielen.
8. Chiefs (6-4): Did they let guard down with Mahomes, Jones, Clark back up in loss to Titans?
9. Texans (6-3): Hard to believe NBC stuck with Bears-Rams rather than flexing Round 1 of Deshaun-Lamar.
10. Eagles (5-4): The favorite in the East, with a markedly softer slate remaining compared to Dallas.
11. Steelers (5-4): Mason and Minkah have saved the Steelers season, and Kevin Colbert deserves much credit for both trades.
12. Panthers (5-4): No shame in losing in snowy Lambeau but must handle business at home now vs. Falcons after they stunned Saints.
13. Cowboys (5-4): Pretty clear listening to Jerry Jones after Vikes loss that he thinks coaching was the issue — and we agree.
14. Rams (5-4): Twelve through 15 here really tough to split but Rams may still have the most talent of the group.
15. Colts (5-4): After back-to-back devastating losses, three straight ahead within division likely to tell Colts 2019 story.
16. Raiders (5-4): Only Bengals at home, Jets on road stand between Raiders being 7-4 heading into Arrowhead Week 13.
17. Bills (6-3): Hauschka's late miss leads to first road loss in Cleveland, and now Bills travel to Dolphins, who have — wait for it — won two in a row.
18. Titans (5-5): Shame they didn't start the season with Tannehill instead of Mariota but upset of Chiefs quite the way to enter bye week.
19. Chargers (4-6): Philip Rivers has three game-ending interceptions in one-score defeats this season.
20. Bears (4-5): Could Trubisky's improvements in win vs. Lions and showing Bears 'D' the film of what it did to Rams last year spark visitors under primetime L.A. lights?
21. Jaguars (4-5): Weird coincidence, Foles returning to starting role as his Jaguars visit old friend Frank Reich's Colts.
22. Bucs (3-6): Arians notches win vs. former team and strongly hints at a future together with Winston after more success in crunch time.
23. Browns (3-6): Hunt and Chubb in the same backfield an exciting wrinkle, and Browns temporarily solve red-zone woes to stave off Buffalo.
24. Cardinals (3-6-1): Kyler Murray's NFL rookie record of 217 attempts without a pick ends in game-sealing red zone giveaway in Tampa.
25. Broncos (3-6): Is Drew Lock time near for Broncos? Likley not before Brandon Allen loses.
26. Lions (3-5-1): It feels like we've seen the last of Matthew Stafford this season.
27. Dolphins (2-7): We're of the belief the culture Brian Flores is building could matter more than the No. 1 overall pick.
28. Falcons (2-7): Where was that pass rush when Dan Quinn really needed it?
29. Jets (2-7): Imagine considering a trade of Jamal Adams.
30. Giants (2-8): Imagine thinking last season — prior to a firesale — that the Giants were ready to compete.
31. Washington (1-8): Can Dwayne Haskins provide any optimism for this awful franchise over final seven games?
32. Bengals (0-9): At least the Bengals hired the next McVay while it was still cool.
