Week 11’s results added some interesting wrinkles to the 2022-23 NFL season’s story, and those nrratives are reflected in my latest Power Rankings.
Most notably, the Minnesota Vikings 8-1 record was put to the test against the Dallas Cowboys, and needless to say, Minnesota failed that test. Dak Prescott, Tony Pollard, and the Cowboys beat down Minnesota 40-3 on their own turf in a huge statement win.
The San Francisco 49ers, Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans, and Cincinnati Bengals all showcased their winning ways again in Week 11, while the Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, and Denver Broncos dug even deeper holes in their disastrous seasons.

Writer’s Note: Due to an overwhelming work schedule and the impending holiday, these Power Rankings will be kept brief and not every team will be elaborated on.
Post-Week 11 Power Rankings
- Kansas City Chiefs (8-2) [Last Week: 1]
- Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs engineered what looked like a routine fourth quarter game-winning drive to down the Chargers 30-27 on Sunday Night Football, extending their stay at #1 in my Power Rankings. Travis Kelce caught three touchdown passes in the win, including the ultimate game-winner.
- Philadelphia Eagles (9-1) [Last Week: 2]
- After losing their first game of the season in Week 10, the Philadelphia Eagles got back in the win column in Week 11: but it was a close one, a 17-16 victory over the Colts that required 14 fourth quarter points.
- Buffalo Bills (7-3) [Last Week: 4]
- Could the Bills have handled Cleveland with more ease? Sure. But with the Vikings losing, Baltimore squeaking by Carolina, and the Dolphins on bye, Josh Allen and the Bills re-enter the Top Three this week.
- Dallas Cowboys (7-3) [Last Week: 10]
- The Dallas Cowboys snapped back in to form with their largest win in franchise history on Sunday, beating the Vikings 40-3 in Minnesota.
- Baltimore Ravens (7-3) [Last Week: 5]
- The Baltimore Ravens’ Week 11 win over the Panthers was surprisingly close and low-scoring: a 13-3 victory with 10 points scored in the fourth quarter.
- Miami Dolphins (7-3) [Last Week: 7]
- Minnesota Vikings (8-2) [Last Week: 3]
- The Minnesota Vikings came crashing back down to Earth with a humbling 40-3 loss to the Cowboys.. at home.
- Tennessee Titans (7-3) [Last Week: 8]
- Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and the Tennessee Titans just keep rolling, with their 27-17 victory over the Packers giving Tennessee their seventh win in eight games.
- Cincinnati Bengals (6-4) [Last Week: 9]
- Joe Burrow threw four touchdown passes in the Cincinnati Bengals 37-30 win over the Steelers.
- San Francisco 49ers (5-4) [Last Week: 12]
- Deebo Samuel dominated on the ground, Christian McCaffrey exploded in the passing game, and needless to say, the San Francisco 49ers are a dangerous team.
- New York Giants (7-3) [Last Week: 6]
- Washington Commanders (6-5) [Last Week: 14]
- Seattle Seahawks (6-4) [Last Week: 13]
