PFT’s Week 11 2022 NFL power rankings

Mike Florio and Chris Simms dive into the Vikings-Bills thriller from Week 10, from why Minnesota was able to rally late, to the final minutes of regulation, to what lies ahead for the Bills and more.

1. Vikings (8-1; last week No. 2): Team of Destiny, even if destiny means finding yet another spectacular way to lose in the postseason.

2. Chiefs (7-2; No. 3): The road to Arizona may end up going through Arrowhead, after all.

3. Eagles (8-1; No. 1): The ’72 Dolphins can properly celebrate the 50th anniversary of their achievement.

4. Giants (7-2; No. 6): Quietly, steadily, methodically, they just keep rolling.

5. Dolphins (7-3; No. 9): The offense is becoming more and more unstoppable. The question is whether it will travel in January. Maybe it won’t have to.

6. Ravens (6-3; No. 7): Out of sight for a week, but hardly out of mind when identifying the best teams in the conference.

7. Cowboys (6-3; No. 4): With many more games like Sunday, the Sean Payton chatter will resurface.

8. Jets (6-3; No. 10): Yes, they’re good enough to a step or two up even when on a bye.

9. Bills (6-3; No. 5): Blowing a 17-point second-half lead at home is not what prohibitive Super Bowl favorites do.

10. 49ers (5-4; No. 11): Great teams find a way to win when they’re not playing well.

11. Seahawks (6-4; No. 8): They got the Bucs at the worst possible time, in the worst possible place.

12. Patriots (5-4; No. 12): They can still be a major factor in the AFC playoff field, if they get there.

13. Titans (6-3; No. 14): A short-week visit to Green Bay will be a pretty good litmus test as to whether they’re a real contender.

14. Buccaneers (5-5; No. 16): Dorian Gray is becoming Benjamin Button.

15. Bengals (5-4; No. 15): Now’s the time to start making their move.

16. Commanders (5-5; No. 18): Carson Wentz once lost his job based on how he played in Philly. He’s losing it now based on how his backup played there.

17. Chargers (5-4; No. 13): The playoffs are far from certain for a team that certainly knows how to sabotage itself.

18. Packers (4-6; No. 22): The young receivers are finally getting comfortable. It would have happened sooner if their $50 million quarterback hadn’t ignored them in the offseason.

19. Falcons (4-6; No. 17): No team needs to be able to run the ball more than the Falcons.

20. Cardinals (4-6; No. 23): The Cardinals have their own version of Geno Smith on the roster. And the fans are starting to figure it out.

21. Browns (3-6; No. 19): Nineteen days until Deshaun.

22. Colts (4-5-1; No. 32): Can it continue? Yes, if they play the Raiders every week.

23. Rams (3-6; No. 20): Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady have been asked whether they regret not retiring. It’s probably time for someone to ask Aaron Donald that same question.

24. Lions (3-6; No. 27): They’re doing enough to stave off another regime change.

25. Bears (3-7; No. 21): It’s a shame to have Justin Fields’s brilliance go wasted so often.

26. Panthers (3-7; No. 28): Baker Mayfield gets another chance to show whether he can be a full-time starter.

27. Steelers (3-6; No. 29): With two games still to be played against the Ravens, they aren’t done yet.

28. Broncos (3-6; No. 25): Nathaniel Hackett continues to do himself no favors.

29. Saints (3-7; No. 24): Why isn’t Taysom Hill the starting quarterback?

30. Jaguars (3-7; No. 26): “They have a lot of potential” has been this team’s motto for years.

31. Texans (1-7-1; No. 31): They’re arguably the best 1-7-1 team in league history.

32. Raiders (2-7; No. 30): “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” It didn’t completely collapse in a day, either.
