Week 10 of the 2018 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 - New Orleans Saints (Last Week: 3) - After scoring 51 on Sunday, the Saints league the lead in points per game with 36.7. Drew Brees is unstoppable right now.
2 - Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 2) - The Chiefs “only” beat a bad Arizona team by 12 points at home. That’s not enough to prevent them from getting leapfrogged by New Orleans here.
3 - Los Angeles Rams (LW: 4) - The Rams bounced back with a win over Seattle. Los Angeles can officially clinch the NFC West as soon as this upcoming weekend.
4 - Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 5) - Make that five wins in a row for Pittsburgh, who made a statement by dropping 52 on a good Carolina team.
5 - Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 7) - The Bolts are 7-2 and their only losses have come to the Rams and Chiefs.
6 - New England Patriots (LW: 1) - The Pats have suffered multiple-possession road losses to Tennessee, Jacksonville, and Detroit this year. Those aren’t exactly juggernauts. And now home field advantage in the playoffs is further out of reach.
7 - Chicago Bears (LW: 8) - Chicago’s good but it’s also not like they’re playing a bunch of tough teams. Their most difficult games have been losses.
8 - Carolina Panthers (LW: 6) - The Panthers failed to prove they belong among the league’s elite teams.
9 - Green Bay Packers (LW: 9) - At 4-4-1, the Packers have some catching up to do in the NFC North but they’re still alive there. Green Bay’s schedule isn’t very difficult down the stretch.
10 - Minnesota Vikings (LW: 10) - The Vikes will return from their Week 10 bye to play in Chicago. Big NFC North game.
11 - Tennessee Titans (LW: 17) - Weird team. A few weeks after getting shut out at home 21-0, the Titans have suddenly strung some quality wins together. Mike Vrabel seems like a good coach?
12 - Houston Texans (LW: 16) - The Texans benefit here from other teams ahead of them losing while Houston had their bye. The Texans will try to extend their winning streak to seven games with a road battle in Washington.
13 - Washington Redskins (LW: 18) - Washington doesn’t really deserve to move up this far. They didn’t even play all that well against the Bucs. But with other teams ahead of them losing, they get to move up here.
14 - Baltimore Ravens (LW: 14) - Joe Flacco is reportedly dealing with a hip injury so the Ravens might have a quarterback change in store. To be determined if that’s a good thing or bad thing.
15 - Seattle Seahawks (LW: 15) - The Seahawks gave Los Angeles a run for their money but ultimately came up short. Still not a team that rolls over.
16 - Indianapolis Colts (LW: 20) - The Colts are riding a three-game win streak. Frank Reich is missed in Philly.
18 - Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 11) - The Eagles came out flat in a game where their season was essentially on the line. Embarrassing. Hard to say the Eagles’ coaching staff is doing a great job this season. Injury issues aren’t helping, either.

19 - Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 12) - Cincy is 1-3 in their last four games. They’ve been outscored 158 to 78 in that stretch.
20 - Atlanta Falcons (LW: 13) - It looked like the Falcons were ready to go on a run after blowing out Washington last week. But Atlanta admittedly took Cleveland too easy and now their season is likely over.
21 - Miami Dolphins (LW: 19) - The Dolphins are now 21-22 in the Adam Gase era.
22 - Cleveland Browns (LW: 24) - Browns fans will feel encouraged to see Baker Mayfield showing franchise quarterback potential.
23 - Detroit Lions (LW: 22) - The Lions stink. They rightfully belong in the NFC North basement.
24 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 23) - The Bucs somehow managed to only score three points despite generating 501 yards of offense.
25 - Denver Broncos (LW: 26) - Denver returns from their bye to play LAC on the road. Staring 3-7 in the face.
26 - Buffalo Bills (LW: 31) - Matt Barkley helped lead the Bills to a 41-10 win. That’s not a sentence I ever expected to be typing in 2018.
27 - Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 27) - The Jags are bad. They’re tied with Oakland for the longest losing streak in the league.
28 - New York Jets (LW: 25) - The J-E-T-S are also B-A-D. Todd Bowles is clearly not going to be back with this team in 2019. He might not even last the season.
29 - New York Giants (LW: 30) - The Giants foolishly screwed up their draft positioning with a meaningless win over San Francisco.
30 - Arizona Cardinals (LW: 28) - The Cards didn’t get totally blown out in Kansas City, which is something, I guess.
32 - Oakland Raiders (LW: 32) - Just lose, baby.
