NFL Power Rankings - Week 11 Review

Nov 22nd, 2017 at 16:36 American Football 0 comments

The top two remained unchanged but the Vikings break into the top three. No team is mathematically out of the playoff picture...yet.

The Falcons also shoot back into the top ten.     As we head towards the final third of the regular season it appears the majority of the divisions are one horse races …
