NFL Week 11 Power Rankings
Despite last week's upset loss to Dallas the New York Giants are still clinging to the top of the NFL Power Rankings here at OddsShark.com, and it means Week 11 sees a battle of the top teams.
New York's ride on top could come to an end shortly if Philadelphia's rapid rise, fuelled by Michael Vick's terrific play, continues.
1. NY Giants (1) – The Giants got thumped by Dallas as a 12.5-point favorite, snapping their five-game winning streak. They could be in big trouble this week on the road against the surging Eagles.
2. Philadelphia (3) – Michael Vick's record-breaking Monday night performance has the Eagles sitting just outside the No. 1 spot in the rankings. They host the Giants this week, and they're 1-4 ATS in their last five at home versus New York.
3. San Diego (2) – The Chargers could be headed for another second-half surge with Antonio Gates, Vincent Jackson, and Malcom Floyd all expected back soon. This game has OVER written all over it and the best current over line is at SportsBetting.ag.
4. NY Jets (5) - With last week's win at Cleveland the Jets are now 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS on the road this season.
5. New Orleans (4) – Did the bye week give the Saints enough time to finally get their running game (Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush) healthy?
6. Atlanta (6) – The 7-2 Falcons own the best record in the NFC, but they're only 5-4 ATS.
7. Oakland (7) – Can the Raiders extend their three-game winning streak this weekend in Pittsburgh?
8. Baltimore (8) – After last week's loss to Atlanta the Ravens should rebound quickly this weekend with a trip to Carolina.
9. Green Bay (11) – Coming off their bye the Packers look to extend their three-game winning streak in Minnesota.
10. Indianapolis (9) – Can Peyton Manning and Colts make it three in a row against Tom Brady and the Patriots with a win this weekend?
11. Pittsburgh (12) – The Steelers are only 2-4 ATS in their last six games and they have to cover nine points versus the surging Raiders this week. Steelers vs Raiders matchup
12. Kansas City (13) – How hard are the Chiefs to figure out this season after back-to-back losses to Oakland and Denver?
13. Minnesota (10) – The Vikings are 0-4 ATS in their last four games.
14. Miami (18) – With Chad Pennington and Chad Henne both banged up the Dolphins could be forced to start Tyler Thigpen this weekend against Chicago.
15. Chicago (17) – The Bears may be tied for first place in the NFC North, but they're only 2-3-1 ATS in their last six games.
16. St. Louis (14) – After covering the spread in last week's loss to San Francisco the Rams are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games.
17. Tennessee (15) – The Randy Moss experiment started with a thud as he caught only one pass for 26 yards in a loss to Miami.
18. Cincinnati (16) – The Bengals have now lost six in a row, but at least they snapped their five-game ATS losing streak last week.
19. Tampa Bay (23) – The Buccaneers have covered in three straight and take their 3-1 road record to San Francisco this week.
20. Detroit (20) - Detroit's 25th straight road loss last week snapped their five-game ATS winning streak.
21. San Francisco (22) – With two wins in two starts Troy Smith may have locked himself in as the 49ers' starting QB.
22. Houston (19) – Remember when the Texans were 3-1? Now they're 4-5 and may have kissed their playoff hopes goodbye.
23. New England (26) – Who would have thought the Patriots' biggest scoring outburst since trading Randy Moss would come against the Steelers?
24. Cleveland (21) – The Browns' winning streak may have been snapped, but with the Jaguars, Panthers, and Dolphins coming up they could start a new one.
25. Denver (27) – The Broncos erupted for 49 points last week after scoring only 50 points combined in their previous three games.
26. Jacksonville (29) – The only thing better than the Jaguars' Hail Mary touchdown last week was listening to Gus Johnson calling it.
27. Dallas (25) – If the Cowboys' performance against the Giants is the result of a coaching change then Wade Phillips should have been axed long ago.
28. Buffalo (28) – The Bills finally won last week, but more importantly they are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games.
29.Washington (24) – Maybe the Redskins should have avoided extending Donovan McNabb's contract and drove a truck full of money up to Michael Vick's house this offseason?
30. Seattle (31) – The Seahawks leading the NFC West at 5-4 should tell you how awful that division is right now.
31. Carolina (30) – Add Jimmy Clausen to the Panthers' already extremely long list of injured players. Don't expect their league-worst offense to get better any time soon.
32. Arizona (32) – The Cardinals are 2-6 ATS in their last eight and it doesn't get any easier this week with a trip to Kansas City.
