Tabeek's NFL Power Rankings: Saints, Bucs rise as Panthers drop below Falcons

The Steelers hold onto the top spot once again as the regular season heads down the final stretch

1117_PR-WK11

We're heading into the second half of November and getting ready to come down the final stretch of the 2020 regular season. Some teams are sitting pretty while many more still have a fighting chance at the postseason.

In short, this really weird season is about to get really interesting, folks. And then there's the NFC East … but I'll leave that one alone for now.

So, without further ado, it's time for the Week 11 edition of my Wildly Important NFL Power Rankings. These rankings will appear here on AtlantaFalcons.com every Tuesday morning. Enjoy!

This team is so hot and cold. But when they’re on, boy, they’re a tough out.

Tennessee Titans
They’ve got some issues in the trenches, and could use a better pass rush, too.
(6-3)
15

If there’s a team that could really use a bye right now, it’s this team. They’re so beat up.

Lions_table
Detroit Lions
They squeaked by Washington and face Carolina next. A .500 mark seems reachable.
(3-6)

They’re rested and heading into New Orleans. A win over the Saints would be huge for this team.
(4-5)
21

Panthers_table
Carolina Panthers
Remember when they were 3-2? They’ve now lost five straight and the wheels are wobbly.
(3-7)

I don’t know what’s going on here, but Carson Wentz just doesn’t look the same as he once did.

Broncos_table
Denver Broncos
Young quarterback, lots of injuries … and lots of question marks still in Denver.
(2-7)

1
Chargers_table
Los Angeles Chargers
At least they’ve found a QB in Herbert and some of the best-looking uniforms in the league.
(2-7)

Washington_table
Washington Football Team
How do you not root for Alex Smith whenever he’s behind center?
(2-7)
29

They’re coming off a bye and it appears the Red Rifle might be back. Not sure if it’ll matter.
(2-7)

Texans_table
Houston Texans
The lost a 10-7 game to the Browns. They have no firepower, outside of Watson.
(1-8)
31

Love that they went into Lambeau and put up a fight. Unfortunately, there are no trophies for that.
(0-9)
32
Jets_table
New York Jets
They had to sit and stew over a last-second loss to the Patriots during their bye week. Awful.
