2015 NFL Power Rankings: Week 11
It's still relatively early, but the AFC wild-card race is getting interesting -- and crowded.
As things stand now, seven teams -- the Steelers, Bills, Jets, Raiders, Chiefs, Dolphins and AFC South runner-up -- could be vying for two spots. Who has the inside track? ESPN's Power Panel is highest on Pittsburgh (No. 9), but others are making headway.
The Bills made one of the week's biggest moves -- up from No. 17 to No. 12 -- after a Week 10 road victory over the Jets. Kansas City, which upset Denver, rose from No. 19 to No. 15 -- its highest ranking since Week 4.
There are also significant changes in our top tier. The surging Vikings have cracked the top five for the first time this season, while the struggling Broncos and Packers fell out. The Bengals, whose perfect season ended Monday night, were bumped by the 9-0 Panthers for the No. 2 spot, while the Patriots remain firmly entrenched at No. 1.
