NFL Power Rankings: AFC North reaction

An undefeated week for the AFC North led to three team moving up in the Power Rankings. Here's a recap of the Week 11 power rankings:


ESPN Power Ranking: No. 5

My ranking: No. 6

2012 record: 7-2

Comment: After a couple of weeks being stuck at No. 7, the Ravens move up a couple of spots to get back into the top five. Like it's been for weeks, the only AFC team ahead of the Ravens is the Texans.


ESPN Power Ranking: No. 9

My ranking: No. 9

2012 record: 6-3

Comment: The Steelers inch up one spot after nearly slipping up to the one-win Chiefs. Pittsburgh has a history of playing down to the competition with losses at Tennessee and Oakland. But the Steelers should be ahead of the No. 10 Giants after beating them nine days ago.


ESPN Power Ranking: No. 19

My ranking: No. 21

2012 record: 4-5

Comment: The Bengals got some love after knocking off the defending Super Bowl champions. Their four-spot jump was the second-biggest of the week (Saints moved up six spots). Still, of the six teams with a 4-5 record, the Bengals are only ahead of the Chargers.


ESPN Power Ranking: No. 30

My ranking: No. 30

2012 record: 2-7

Comment: It was a bye week. The Jaguars and Chiefs both lost, so the Browns remained in the same spot.
