NFL Power Rankings Week 11: Another new No. 1 emerges after crazy weekend

Dave Holcomb

At the end of the year, Week 10 may be remembered as the craziest week of season. Yes, we've had some Top 10 teams on our power rankings list lose previously, but the twists and turns of this week and endings haven't been matched this year.

The week couldn't have had a better ending either, as the Seattle Seahawks edged the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football in the final seconds of overtime, 27-24, handing San Francisco its first loss of the season.

What that result also did was knock the 49ers from the top perch on our power rankings. The Baltimore Ravens, winners of their last five games, now hold the top spot.

In the last month, the Ravens have defeated the No. 2 and 3 team in our power rankings this week -- the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is absolutely rolling, as he accounted for four more touchdowns against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

The 49ers slipped just past the Seahawks to No. 4.

For the second straight week, our Atlanta Falcons moved up in the power rankings to No. 27 behind their 26-9 victory against the New Orleans Saints. New Orleans dropped from No. 2 out of the top five to No. 6 as a result of the embarrassing home defeat. The Green Bay Packers, who just barely held the Carolina Panthers out of the end zone in the final seconds, moved back into the Top 5 at No. 5.

The Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys played an exciting matchup on Sunday Night Football, with the Vikings holding on to win, 28-24. The Vikings moved up a spot to No. 7 while the Cowboys remained just outside the Top 10 at No. 11.
