Week 10 of the 2019 NFL regular season schedule is officially in the books. Now it’s time to see how all 32 teams stack up heading into Week 11. For reference purposes, here’s a link back to last week’s NFL Power Rankings.
BLG’S WEEK 11 NFL POWER RANKINGS
1 - Baltimore Ravens (Last Week: 3) - Lamar Jackson is making his case to be NFL MVP. Just look at these Week 10 stats: 15/17 (including one QB spike), 223 yards (13.1 average), 3 TD, 0 INT, 158.3 passer rating, 65 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD. He’s an even better version of Michael Vick.

2 - New England Patriots (LW: 4) - The Pats’ one loss came to the best team in these power rankings. Their post-bye schedule will offer some more resistance than their pre-bye slate ... starting with the team that beat them in Super Bowl LII.
4 - San Francisco 49ers (LW: 1) - Despite suffering their first loss, it’s clear that the 49ers are really good. But just how good is Jimmy Garoppolo? He now ranks tied for 15th among starting quarterbacks in passer rating. His three turnovers contributed to the 49ers’ Monday Night Football loss.
5 - Green Bay Packers (LW: 7) - Aaron Rodgers has only thrown two interceptions this season and just one in his last six starts. The Packers are always going to be tough to beat when he’s playing this well.
6 - New Orleans Saints (LW: 2) - Hm, are the Saints some frauds? New Orleans was coming off a bye and they lost by three possessions at home to a one-win Atlanta team. The Saints will probably bounce back but this was a real bad loss that could ultimately end up costing them a first-round bye.
8 - Minnesota Vikings (LW: 12) - It only took until the eighth year of his career but Kirk Cousins actually showed up in a prime-time game. Huge win for Minnesota as they’re in good position for a wild card spot ... at least.
9 - Houston Texans (LW: 9) - The Texans’ playoff odds slightly decreased during their bye due to Tennessee winning. Houston has the AFC South lead for now but there’s a lot of competition for that division title.
10 - Carolina Panthers (LW: 11) - The Panthers were mere inches away from potentially forcing overtime in Green Bay. They’re a tough team.
11 - Dallas Cowboys (LW: 13) - The Cowboys are 2-4 in their last six games. Their struggles are allowing Philly to hang around in the NFC East.
12 - Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 14) - The Eagles have a real chance to make a run in the final seven games since they have one of the easiest remaining schedules in the NFL. Combined record of their remaining opponents: 27-38.
13 - Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 18) - If the season ended today, the Stillers would be the No. 6 seed in the AFC playoff picture. The Minkah Fitzpatrick trade has helped revive their season after an 0-3 start.
Jared Goff, last 16 games:— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) November 11, 2019
4,256 yards (7.0 Y/A)
79.2 passer rating
28 sacks, 219 sack yards lost, **5.75 ANY/A**
3 rushing TDs
He's basically high volume Mark Sanchez.
15 - Oakland Raiders (LW: 20) - Don’t look now but the Raiders are seventh in the AFC playoff picture. Jon Gruden might actually be able to steal the AFC West lead away from KC?!
18 - Buffalo Bills (LW: 15) - In the words of BGN’s Michael Kist, the Bills are paper tigers. They entered Week 10 ranked 25th in DVOA and that shouldn’t improve with a loss to Cleveland.
20 - Detroit Lions (LW: 17) - The Lions were showing some promise before things quickly slipped away. Now Detroit is dead last in the NFC North as they move forward with Jeff Driskel replacing an injured Matthew Stafford. Another lost season.
21 - Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 19) - It looked like the Bolts might’ve turned a corner with a win over Green Bay but that victory was short-lived. The Chargers missed an opportunity to make a push in the AFC West.
22 - Denver Broncos (LW: 22) - The Broncos return from their bye to play in Minnesota. They’re staring 3-7 in the face.
24 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 25) - Well, the Bucs (barely) beat Arizona but they’re going nowhere fast with a starting quarterback who’s logged 16 combined interceptions and fumbles in his last four starts. Get Bruce Arians a replacement for Jameis Winston and maybe the Bucs have something going for them.
25 - Atlanta Falcons (LW: 28) - I’m guessing Dan Quinn saved himself from getting fired in-season with such a big win over a divisional rival. His players sure showed up for him.
28 - Miami Dolphins (LW: 29) - Don’t let the Dolphins get hot! That’s two wins in a row for Miami. So much for tanking!
29 - New York Jets (LW: 31) - The Jets proved they’re the superior New York team by beating the other New York team in a game played in New Jersey.
30 - New York Giants (LW: 27) - Dating back to college, Daniel Jones has fumbled 35 times in his last 49 games. Jones has shown some potential but that’s a huge issue. This is one of the easiest defensive touchdowns you’ll ever see:
31 - Washington Redskins (LW: 32) - Washington announced Dwayne Haskins is starting for the rest of 2019. He’s thrown zero touchdowns to four interceptions for a 42.2 passer rating thus far.
32 - Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 30) - Benching Andy Dalton really made a difference ... in a bad way. The winless Bengals are in the lead for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Good thing they weren’t sellers at the NFL trade deadline.
