NFL power rankings, Week 11: There's a lot of mediocre parity right now

New, comments

Week 10 of the 2015 NFL season is a wrap, and the 49ers are officially through their bye week. With that win, we present Week 11 NFL power rankings.

Week 10 of the 2015 NFL season is officially a wrap following one of the unbeatens getting taken down. The Cincinnati Bengals were pretty abysmal in losing to the Houston Texans. The Bengals led 6-3 for much of the game, but fell apart in the second half. The Bengals drop to 8-1, leaving the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers as the only unbeatens at 9-0.

The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up their bye week, and now get to head off to face the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The 49ers are 3-6, while the Seahawks are 4-5. There is only one game separating the two of them, but it is difficult to figure out how they compare and contrast. The 49ers have had a ton of turnover, but the Seahawks just seem to be really average at best right now.

Both offensive lines are awful. The 49ers offense has been a dumpster fire, and is now looking to make something happen with Blaine Gabbert. On the other side, Russell Wilson is having a less than stellar year, but they do still have Marshawn Lynch. On the defensive side of the ball, the 49ers are slowly coming together, coming off a strong performance against the Falcons. The Seahawks still have a lot of their defensive playmakers, but this group is just not the same as we have seen in recent years. I don't know that the 49ers offense can make enough plays against them, but there could be some opportunities.

As for the rest of the rankings, the middle of the pack is shifting around as teams win and lose, but it is kind of just a big mess of teams. The NFL has all sorts of parity, with 14 teams ranging between 5-4, 5-5 and 4-5. The rankings split up mostly between that group, the better group, and the worst group. Good times in the NFL!
