Arizona Sports NFL Power Rankings Week 11: Top teams stay put

Through 10 weeks of the NFL season, we’re finally getting a separation between the haves and the have-nots of the league.

However, after about the top 10 teams, there’s 22 mediocre-to-bad squads right now.

The Philadelphia Eagles hold on to the top spot for another week even though they were on their bye. The New England Patriots won their 12th straight road game, taking apart the Denver Broncos in the process. The Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints and the Minnesota Vikings all kept chugging along, notching wins varying in impressiveness.

Here’s a look at our 1-32 pecking order heading into Week 11.

Ties will go to the team that receives the majority of higher rankings from our panel.
