NFL Week 11 Power Rankings: Packers debut at top spot; Chiefs and Patriots crack top 10

A handful of top 10 teams in our power rankings last week dropped their games in Week 10. See how that affected our rankings for Week 11.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — It's chaos in the NFL pretty much every week at this point.

Multiple teams in our Locked On NFL Power Rankings top five continue to go down each week, causing major shake ups in our weekly rankings.

This week, the Cardinals, Bucs and Rams all lost their games, forcing them to drop in the rankings. The Packers made a nice statement win with Aaron Rodgers back to get to 8-2 and the Tennessee Titans lead the AFC as they just continue to get big win after big win.

This year, the Locked On Podcast Network and TEGNA sports departments have teamed up to vote weekly to rank all 32 NFL teams in our Locked On/TEGNA NFL Power Rankings. 

Our local Locked On NFL hosts and TEGNA sports journalists ranked their 1-32 power rankings and the voting averages created the official power rankings.

Let's get on to the rankings.

1. Green Bay Packers

Ranking last week: 4
Last week result: 17-0 win over Seahawks
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 1/4

You can put a bit of an asterisk on Green Bay's Week 9 loss to the Chiefs when they were without Aaron Rodgers. Their defense still held the Chiefs to 13 points and they lost by less than a TD. With Aaron Rodgers back, the Packers pulled off a shutout win over the Seahawks as their defense continues to make big statements. While five teams received No. 1 votes this week, it was the Packers who received the most.

2. Tennessee Titans

Ranking last week: 3
Last week result: 23-21 win over Saints
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 1/9

This team just keeps winning, even without All-Pro running back Derrick Henry. The Titans have now won their last six games including wins over the Bills, Chiefs, Colts, Rams and Saints. They're rolling and firmly atop the AFC.

3. Arizona Cardinals

Ranking last week: 1
Last week result: 34-10 loss to Panthers
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 1/8

The Cardinals couldn't keep the magic going with backup Colt McCoy as they were dominated by the Panthers at home on Sunday. It's hard to calculate how much they should drop. They've played two games now without Kyler Murray and are 1-1 in those games. They're still 8-2 on the year and they should get Murray and DeAndre Hopkins back for next week against the Seahawks.

4. Dallas Cowboys

Ranking last week: 7
Last week result: 43-3 win over Falcons
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 1/7

The Dallas Cowboys had a big bounce back on Sunday against the Falcons after they were embarrassed by the Broncos the previous week. Dallas dominated every part of Sunday's game and showed why they belong in the top five at 7-2 on the year.

5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 

Ranking last week: 2
Last week result: 29-19 loss to Washington
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 3/8

As we've seen from top teams pretty consistently over the past few weeks, the Bucs just laid an egg in Washington on Sunday. They had nothing going on both sides of the ball as they lost to a 2-6 Washington team. They'll have a good bounce back opportunity against the Giants next week.

6. Buffalo Bills

Ranking last week: 8
Last week result: 45-17 win over Jets
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 1/8

After a brutal Week 9 loss to the Jaguars, the Bills got back to their winning ways on Sunday with an easy win over the Jets. That bumped them back up two spots to No. 6, as they're 6-3 on the year now.

7. Los Angeles Rams

Ranking last week: 5
Last week result: 31-10 loss to 49ers
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 4/11

The Rams have now been blown out two weeks in a row in primetime. They made big headlines after bringing in Von Miller and Odell Beckham Jr. but so far have nothing to show for it. They're 7-3 on the year and are going into a much-needed bye week.

8. Baltimore Ravens

Ranking last week: 6
Last week result: 22-10 loss to Dolphins
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 4/11

The Baltimore Ravens looked awful last Thursday night against a bottom five team in Miami. It's another inexplicable loss from a top 10 team. They're now 6-3 on the year and have a bounce back spot against the Bears next week.

9. Kansas City Chiefs

Ranking last week: 14
Last week result: 41-14 win over Raiders
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 6/12

Are the Chiefs back? They looked like their old selves on Sunday as they dominated the Raiders on the road. Patrick Mahomes had over 400 yards and five touchdowns for the third time in his career. This may have been the spark they needed to flip the switch on their season. They're 6-4 and suddenly atop the AFC West as they jump back into our top 10.

10. New England Patriots

Ranking last week: 15
Last week result: 45-7 win over Browns
Highest/lowest vote in power rankings poll: 7/15

The New England Patriots are streaking and they're getting a lot of attention now as potentially a top contender in the AFC all of a sudden. They demolished the Browns at home on their way to a fourth-straight win. They make their debut in our top 10 this week.
