2009 NFL Power Rankings, Week 11

Posted on: November 24, 2009 1:52 pm
 
1.) New Orleans (10-0) [no change]
 The Saints kept it rolling against Tampa Bay.  Next Monday could be the Game of the Year as New England comes to town.
2.) Indianapolis (10-0) [no change]
 Indianapolis made another great escape in Baltimore.  Oh, the irony.  Next, they come down to my stomping grounds in Houston.
3.) Minnesota (9-1) [no change]
 Favre for MVP?  It's not completely ridiculous, even if I wouldn't vote for him.
4.) Arizona (7-3) [+1]
 Kurt Warner bowed out after he felt "not perfect".  How he bounces back will undoubtedly affect the Cardinals' postseason chances; with him, they win the division.  Without him, who knows?  Matt Leinart isn't ready for prime time, still.
5.) San Diego (7-3) [+1]
 Talk about beating down a division rival.  San Diego crushed Denver, likely killing whatever playoff chance the Broncos had.
6.) Dallas (7-3) [+2]
 A win is a win, but these guys can do much better.  I really shouldn't even move them up.
7.) New England (7-3) [+2]
 The Patriots proved once again that they're mentally tough, despite whatever happens in previous games.
8.) Green Bay (6-4) [+2]
 They followed a dominant win with a somewhat fluky win.  Obviously, they're not catching Minnesota, but a Wild Card isn't out of the question yet.
9.) Philadelphia (6-4)
 Donovan McNabb and LeSean McCoy came up big when the Eagles needed it.  There was also a Michael Vick sighting, and it was a nice run too.
10.) Cincinnati (7-3) [-6]
 Most disappointing team of the week?  It's either these idiots or the Steelers, who aren't even in the Rankings this week (I'd still have them in, but Philly won, and I like to keep winners in).
