NFL Power Rankings, Week 11: ESPN Keeps Packers, 49ers At 1-2

ESPN released their week 11 NFL Power Rankings and there really was nothing particularly shocking about them. The Green Bay Packers dominated the Minnesota Vikings to retain their firm grip on the number one position. The Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders were the biggest movers, as they each climbed four positions. The Philadelphia Eagles had the biggest drop as they fell six positions.

The 49ers continue to sit at number two and really are looking like they won't be climbing up much anytime soon. The Packers could very well go undefeated. The 49ers have some tough games remaining that could cause a drop, but as long as the Packers keep winning the 49ers won't climb any higher. They host the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday and will simply look to maintain their current run.

The Raiders were big gainers following a huge road win over the San Diego Chargers as they climbed from No. 21 to No. 16. The Raiders were sizable underdogs, but they went into San Diego and claimed a big divisional win to take over first place in the AFC West. The Raiders travel to Minnesota and given how tight the AFC West is shaping up, it is a must-win for the Raiders.

Here is a breakdown of the top ten in ESPN's Week 11 NFL Power Rankings:

1. Green Bay Packers
2. San Francisco 49ers
3. New Orleans Saints
4. Pittsburgh Steelers
5. Chicago Bears
6. Baltimore Ravens
7. New York Giants
8. New England Patriots
9. Houston Texans
10. Detroit Lions
