NFL Power Rankings, Week 11: 49ers Gaining Ground Around The Internet

As NFL power rankings were rolled out this week it shouldn’t be surprising that a 49ers victory over the Rams would lead to a nice little boost for the 49ers. Over at Niners Nation, we run through six different power rankings each week just to get a little taste of what’s going on. The six rankings are ESPN, CBS Sports, Fox Sports, The Big Lead, Pro Football Talk, and Fanhouse’s NFL page.

This week the 49ers climbed an average of three spots from 27.17 to 24.17 courtesy of the their victory over the Rams. The primary reason for this big change was the combination of the 49ers own win and some key losses around the league. The three biggest contributors were the Cincinnati Bengals, Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions. The three of them were generally ahead of the 49ers in the rankings and came crashing down behind them in most rankings this week.

The 49ers biggest gain among those six was at CBS Sports where they improved from 27 to 22. Their smallest gain came courtesy of The Big Lead where they improved from 26 to 25.

NFL Power Rankings, Week 11: 49ers Get Bump, Raiders Drop Spot In SB Nation Rankings

SB Nation released their Week 11 NFL Power Rankings and as expected the San Francisco 49ers received a nice little bump courtesy of their 23-20 overtime victory over the St. Louis Rams. Losses this week saw Minnesota, Cincinnati, Detroit, and Arizona all come crashing down past the 49ers.

The 49ers face another huge challenge this week as they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are 6-3 and ranked No. 11 in the SB Nation. A win over the Bucs would surely mean a sizable increase in the rankings next week, as well as a key win in a potential playoff push.

The Raiders were on a bye this week getting ready to head to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers. The bye cost them a spot in the rankings as they were surpassed by the Bucs. The Steelers, Giants, and Ravens all lost ahead of them but they had some cushion in their rankings and thus didn’t fall behind the Raiders. It’s safe to say that if the Raiders somehow knock off the Steelers at Heinz Field they’ll take a monstrous step forward in both the power rankings and in a potential playoff bid.
