NFL Power Rankings Roundup, Week 11

Your weekly tour through various media outlets' weekly NFL Power Rankings. With the Pittsburgh Steelers losing in convincing fashion this past Sunday night to the New England Patriots, you'd expect Pittsburgh to slide out of a number of folks' top-five. Let's take a look.

SB Nation: No. 8 ; Last Week: No.4

The Steelers bombed against the Patriots in what was supposed to be one of the best games of the year. They've got themselves a battle in the AFC North.

ESPN: No. 5 ; Last Week: No.2

Steelers are just 1-2 in their last three games. (Walker)

 

CBS Sports: No. 7 ; Last Week: No.5

The offensive line woes showed up against the Patriots. Ben Roethlisberger might be running for his life the rest of the way.

 

FOX Sports Power Rankings: No. 7 Last Week: No.4

The offensive line injuries really took their toll during last week's loss to the visiting Patriots. And the defensive line injuries are also an issue. It was just a few weeks ago that the Steelers were looking like perhaps the AFC's best team, but those injuries could prevent them from winning the AFC North.

 

Fanhouse: No. 9 ; Last Week: No.5

Sunday night, the Steelers couldn't block, couldn't generate a pass rush, couldn't cover anyone and couldn't make a kick. That is, obviously, not a great combination. A visit from Oakland Sunday either will help the Steelers turn things back around or push their season to the brink of falling apart.

 

Peter King (MMQ): No. 7 ; Last Week: No. 2

 

Didn't play the Patriots close at home. That's the difference between 6 and 7. That and the offensive-line injuries to the Steelers. That made the Patriots look like a bunch of jail-escapees on defense Sunday night.
