Week 11 NFL Power Rankings: A Shakeup at the Top of the NFC

The Eagles (5-4) got to watch football last Sunday on their bye week, but they come back with seven games left and a good shot to make it to the playoffs. 

Let's take a look at the latest NFC power rankings, which includes a shakeup at the top:

A Recap of How Eagles Have Used 10 Different OL Combinations This Year

1. Seahawks (8-2) Last week: 3
A new No. 1! In a really fun game on Monday night, the Seahawks handed the 49ers their first loss of the season. Seattle kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired in overtime to pick up a 27-24 win over their divisional foe. That means the Seahawks have won both of their last two games in overtime. Their only losses this season are to the Saints and Ravens. 

2. 49ers (8-1) Last week: 1
I admire the 49ers' aggressiveness, but they probably should have played for a tie late in that overtime. That would have kept more distance between them and the Seahawks in the NFC West. Anyway, they have just one loss and it came in overtime to a good team. After a game against the Cardinals, the Niners have three tough ones in a row, against the Packers, Ravens and Saints. 

3. Packers (8-2) Last week: 4
Even though the Packers let the Panthers stick around late, they got another win over a quality opponent, beating Carolina 24-16. They bounce back after that bad loss to the Chargers and have a bye week before traveling to San Francisco in Week 12. 

4. Saints (7-2) Last week: 2
Coming off the bye week, the Saints laid an egg against the Falcons, losing 26-9. That's a bad loss. 

5. Vikings (7-3) Last week: 5
Nice 28-24 win over the Cowboys for the Vikings, but there's no room for them to go up. I don't think they're better than any of the teams listed above them. Still, they're just one game behind Green Bay in the NFC North and face the Broncos before their Week 12 bye. 

6. Cowboys (5-4) Last week: 7 
The Cowboys should have beaten the Vikings late in that game but a few questionable play calls killed them. Dallas is a talented team, but I question their coaching staff. 

7. Eagles (5-4) Last week: 8 
The Eagles rested on their bye week, but came out of it in a much better spot than they went in, largely because of the Cowboys' loss. I couldn't put them ahead of Dallas thanks to their head-to-head game a few weeks ago, but they have better playoff chances right now. 

8. Rams (5-4) Last week: 6
The Rams' offense looks broken, but at least Sean McVay remembers what he had for lunch 12 years ago. 

9. Panthers (5-4) Last week: 9
I won't kill the Packers for losing to the Packers. They're not on that level, but the Panthers were two yards away from possibly tying the game when a Christian McCaffrey run from the 2 fell short and time ran out on Carolina in a 24-16 loss. The Panthers had five plays inside the 10-yard line and couldn't score. 

10. Bears (4-5) Last week: 12
After losing four straight games, the Bears got a 20-13 win over the Lions, who were without Matthew Stafford. Remember, the Bears were 3-1 at one point earlier this season. 

11. Lions (3-5-1) Last week: 11
Without Matthew Stafford, the Lions lost to the reeling Bears, 20-13. It's their second-straight loss and their fourth in five games since their early bye. So much for the Lions being contenders. 

12. Buccaneers (3-6) Last week: 13
After four-straight losses, the Bucs got a 30-27 win over the Cardinals last week to stop the bleeding. 

13. Cardinals (3-6-1) Last week: 10 
A three-point loss to the Bucs drops the Cards down three spots. 

14. Falcons (2-7) Last week: 15
Where did that come from? The Falcons went to New Orleans last week and beat the Saints, 26-9. Their two wins this season are over the Eagles (5-4) and the Saints (7-2). This is a weird league. 

15. Giants (2-8) Last week: 14
They lost to the Jets and now have to think about what they've done over the bye week. 

16. Redskins (1-8) Last week: 16 
Washington will face the Jets coming off their bye week for a rare chance to get a win. Good for them, deciding to go with Dwayne Haskins the rest of the way.
