Taking It to the House’s Week 11 Power Rankings

 Despite the best efforts of All-World RB Adrian Peterson, the reeling Minnesota Vikings continue to fall down the Taking It to the House Power Rankings.  This week, the Vikes slide down to #31 on our list

  1. Green Bay Packers (9-0) – 14 point favorites at home against a respectable Buccaneers team tells you how good this team is playing right now.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Tampa Bay
  2. San Francisco 49ers (8-1) – The 49ers have a potential let down game coming up on Sunday.  They just beat a tough Giants team and have got a showdown with Baltimore on Thanksgiving.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Arizona
  3. Houston Texans (7-3) – The Texans have to be devastated by the loss of Matt Schuab, but they have been a resilient bunch all year.  Week 11: Bye
  4. New Orleans Saints (7-3) – Drew Brees benefited from having Sean Payton back on the sidelines.  Week 11: Bye 
  5. Baltimore Ravens (6-3) – Another let down against an inferior opponent.  Surprising for a Ray Lewis lead team.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Cincinnati
  6. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-3) – Hopefully the Steelers can get healthy after their much needed bye week.  Week 11: Bye
  7. New York Giants (6-3) – Tough loss in San Francisco.  The Cowboys are in their rear view mirror which means they need to keep winning.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Philadelphia 
  8. New England Patriots (6-3) – The Patriots played their best game of the year last Sunday.  They seem to have the inside track on the number 1 seed in the AFC playoffs.  Week 11: 11/21 vs. Kansas City
  9. Chicago Bears (6-3) – The Bears proved that they were the second best team in the NFC North with their dominating win Sunday against Detroit.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. San Diego
  10. New York Jets (5-4) – Tough loss on Sunday night and tough game upcoming in a short week.  Week 11: 11/17 @ Denver
  11. Dallas Cowboys (5-4) – The Cowboys are playing their best football around Thanksgiving.  That is always a good sign.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Washington         
  12. Cincinnati Bengals (6-3) – The loss of CB Leon Hall cannot be overstated.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Baltimore
  13. Detroit Lions (6-3) – The Lions failed their first real test.  Now they need to bounce back before their Thanksgiving showdown with the Packers.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Carolina
  14. Buffalo Bills (5-4) – Injuries have derailed the Bills season.  Let’s see what Chan Gailey can get out of a depleted squad.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Miami
  15. Oakland Raiders (5-4) – Carson Palmer played a great game in San Diego last Thursday night.  Long week should have him ready to play just as good.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Minnesota
  16. Atlanta Falcons (5-4) – Gamble by Mike Smith on his own 29-yard line didn’t pay off.  It may have cost the Falcons the division.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Tennessee
  17. Tennessee Titans (5-4) – Convincing win in Carolina last Sunday.  With the injury to Matt Schuab the Titans aren’t out of the division race by a long shot.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Atlanta
  18. San Diego Chargers (4-5) – The injuries are piling up for the Chargers.  Pro Bowl G Kris Dielman was placed on IR.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Chicago
  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-5) – Raheem Morris’ team was embarrassed for the second time this season.  We will see how they bounce back against the defending champs.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Green Bay
  20. Denver Broncos (4-5) – The Broncos called only 10 pass plays on Sunday against the Chiefs.  They managed a 17-7 win.  Week 11: 11/17 vs. NY Jets
  21. Kansas City Chiefs (4-5) – The loss of Matt Cassel makes Tyler Palko the starting quarterback of the Chiefs indefinitely.  Week 11: 11/21 @ New England
  22. Arizona Cardinals (3-6) – John Skeleton 2-0 as a starter.  Kevin Kolb 1-6 as a starter.  Week 11: 11/20 @ San Francisco 
  23. Philadelphia Eagles (3-6) – Andy Reid isn’t on the hot seat.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. NY Giants
  24. Seattle Seahawks (3-6) – The Seahawks proved that Quest Field is arguably the toughest place to play in the NFL.  Week 11: 11/20 @ St. Louis
  25. Cleveland Browns (3-6) – Phil Dawson missed a 23-yard field goal that would have won the game last Sunday.  That is how the Browns season has gone so far.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Jacksonville  
  26. Carolina Panthers (2-7) – The Panthers looked like the Panthers of the 2010 last Sunday.  They seem to be regressing as the season goes along.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Detroit  
  27. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-6) – The Jaguars lost CB Rasheen Mathis for the year with a torn ACL.  Week 11: 11/20 @ Cleveland
  28. Miami Dolphins (2-7) – Won their last 2 games by a combined score of 51-12.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Buffalo
  29. St. Louis Rams (2-7) – The Rams are an improving team that has been competitive for the last month.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Seattle
  30. Washington Redskins (3-6) – Mike Shanahan switched back to Rex Grossman last Sunday in Miami.  Unfortunately for the Redskins their offense still looked horrible.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Dallas
  31. Minnesota Vikings (2-7) – When you start a rookie quarterback, you will have nights like Monday night Leslie Frazier.  Week 11: 11/20 vs. Oakland
  32. Indianapolis Colts (0-10) – Tough to imagine the Colts not getting the number 1 pick in next April’s draft.  Week 11: Bye
