Week 10 of the 2017 NFL regular season schedule is in the books. Now it's time to see where all 32 teams rank. For reference purposes, here is a link to last week's NFL Power Rankings.

BLG's WEEK 11 NFL POWER RANKINGS

1 - Philadelphia Eagles (Last Week: 1) - Bye week. Next up for the Eagles is a road game against the Cowboys. Philly can virtually lock up the NFC East with a win.

2 - New England Patriots (LW: 3) - After some shaky early season performances, the Patriots have rounded into form. It’s helped that they’ve played a bunch of bad teams lately.

3 - New Orleans Saints (LW: 4) - The Saints have won seven games in a row. The offense is firing on all cylinders and the defense is playing well. New Orleans is the biggest threat to the Eagles in the NFC.

4 - Los Angeles Rams (LW: 5) - Sean McVay’s Rams are averaging 32.9 points per game. That ranks first in the NFL.

5 - Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 6) - The Jags won in spite of Blake Bortles yet again. If this team had a good quarterback, they’d be much more threatening.

6 - Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 2) - Steelers moving down four spots after a win? Yep, they didn’t look very good against a bad Colts team. Pittsburgh is fortunate they can rely on their defense because their offense isn’t playing great.

7 - Minnesota Vikings (LW: 9) - Case Keenum threw four touchdowns against Washington. It seems like he’s playing over his head and is bound to regress. But maybe not. We’ll see.

8 - Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 8) - Bye week. Next up for the Chiefs is a road game against an awful NYG team. We all know how good Andy Reid is after the bye.

9 - Seattle Seahawks (LW: 10) - The Seahawks didn’t look awesome in their win over the Cardinals, but they got the job done. The bad news is Richard Sherman is now done for the season. RIP to the LOB.

10 - Carolina Panthers (LW: 11) - Carolina beat up on a really bad Miami team.

11 - Detroit Lions (LW: 12) - The Lions overcame a slow start against Cleveland in order to advance to 5-4.

12 - Atlanta Falcons (LW: 14) - After losing four of their last five games, the Falcons got back on track with a win over Dallas. Adrian Clayborn earned an extra $750,000 by notching six sacks on Sunday. Not bad.

13 - Dallas Cowboys (LW: 7) - Dak Prescott predictably failed to overcome the losses of Tyron Smith and Ezekiel Elliott. He faced a lot of pressure and totally collapsed. Sean Lee getting hurt didn’t help Dallas either. This team was exposed in Atlanta.

14 - Tennessee Titans (LW: 17) - Four wins in a row. The Titans are first in the AFC South at 6-3. It hasn’t been pretty but they’re finding ways to win.

15 - Green Bay Packers (LW: 19) - Green Bay is still alive after finding a way to beat the Bears. Solid outing by Brett Hundley: 18/25, 212 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT, 110.8 passer rating.

16 - Washington Redskins (LW: 13) - Kirk Cousins doesn’t come up big in big games. In a game where Washington really needed a win at home, Cousins finished with a 78.7 passer rating. Enjoy making him the highest paid player in NFL history, Dan Snyder.

17 - Baltimore Ravens (LW: 17) - Bye week. Up next: a road game against the Packers.

18 - New York Jets (LW: 15) - Leading up to Week 10, this upstart Jets team was showing some good fight. And then they went out and lost to the Bucs with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback. Gross.

19 - Buffalo Bills (LW: 16) - When the Bills were 5-2, there was some talk about how Sean McDermott isn’t getting enough “Coach of the Year” love. Buffalo has since lost their last two games by a combined score of 81 to 31.

20 - Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 21) - The Bolts have mastered losing in close games.

21 - Oakland Raiders (LW: 22) - Bye week. Next up: home game against the Patriots. Big test.

22 - Houston Texans (LW: 20) - Houston is doomed with “Tom Savage” at quarterback.

23 - Arizona Cardinals (LW: 24) - Arizona is 1-4 in their last five. They’re going nowhere fast. Drew Stanton got banged up so the Cardinals might be down to Blaine Gabbert.

24 - Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 25) - The Bengals are on pace to have their first back-to-back losing seasons since 2008. Will the Bengals finally move on from Marvin Lewis? I’ll believe it when I see it.

25 - Chicago Bears (LW: 26) - Chicago managed to lose at home to a Packers team that didn’t have Aaron Rodgers. Still bad.

26 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 29) - They won, but they’re still bad.

27 - Indianapolis Colts (LW: 28) - It almost looked like the Colts were going to beat the Steelers. Indy played better than expected. They still have the worst point differential in the NFL.

28 - Denver Broncos (LW: 23) - Denver owns the NFL’s second longest losing streak at five in a row. Their offense averaged a mere 13.6 points in those games. Brock Osweiler has to be the least inspiring starter in the NFL, right?

29 - Miami Dolphins (LW: 27) - How the hell does this Dolphins team have four wins? They’re awful. Outscored by 112 to 45 in their last three games.

30 - San Francisco 49ers (LW: 31) - The 49ers are on the board with a win!

31 - New York Giants (LW: 30) - I really thought about putting the Giants dead last. They’re just playing such uninspired football right now. Getting decisively beat by the 0-9 Niners is about as bad as it gets. New York issued a statement indicating they’re sticking with Ben McAdoo for the season. It’s hard to take them at their word considering how awful he’s been.

32 - Cleveland Browns (LW: 32) - You know what time it is.
