Week 11 NFL Power Rankings: Giants get hot, Cardinals thrill
By Will Lomas
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+5)
False alarm guys, the Bucs are fine. Well, the offensive line was still a little bit leaky which is generally the worst thing in the world for Tom Brady, but this team has the talent to overcome that.
With a well-coached and stacked defense, it is always going to be hard to beat the Bucs once you are forced to come from behind, but when JPP and Shaq Barrett are feeling it like they were today, then you have no chance.
This win is a little bit more lopsided than it looked like in the first half of the game, but all in all this week taught us that there really are a lot of mediocre teams in the NFL masquerading as powerful so why not elevate one of those teams with the best defense?
3. Pittsburgh Steelers (+0)
I don’t know if Big Ben is still the same guy from an arm strength standpoint, but until you force him to prove it more than once or twice a game, no one is going to know.
The best thing about the Steelers is their collection of talent and wide receiver and the playmakers on their defense. That is a lethal combination and it explains there 9-0 start to the season. Are they as good as their record says? Probably not, but that just means that they are a 13-3 team and not a team with one or no losses.
