The mighty have fallen in Week 11 as many of the top teams in the NFL lost this week to opposing teams.

What do the Tennessee Titans, Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys, and Buffalo Bills have in common? They all lost to a team lower in the rankings. Many top teams lost this week shaking things up in the Top 10, including a new team on this list. Let’s look at the Week 12 Power Rankings.

Detroit Lions

0-9-1

32

31

After losing Jared Goff to an oblique injury, improbable QB Tim Boyle got the start for the Lions in an unimpressive defeat. Throwing for only 77 yards and 2 interceptions, Boyle struggled to keep the Lions in rhythm throughout the game. Instead, the Lions went to the ground game, where D’Andre Swift had a great day, tallying 136 yards and 1 TD. The defense held their own vs the Browns though, shutting them out in the 2nd half after allowing only 13 in the first. The Lions have a quick turnaround on Thanksgiving, with Boyle looking to be the starter once again in a game that should be about as good as cranberry sauce. – Garrett Williams

Next Week: Chicago Bears (3-7)

Jacksonville has shown that they are declawed and remain inside as house cats. The 49ers swarmed Trevor Lawrence with three sacks. No running game to talk about but James Robinson was able to score to lessen the deficit. Losing 30-10 as the road to #1 Pick. – Josh Braegger

Next Week: Atlanta Falcons (4-6)

The Jets employed the services of Joe Flacco after Mike White’s recent poor performances. He threw for almost 300 yards on 24 completions and two touchdowns. Michael Carter, the one young bright spot of the offense, rushed for 63 yards on nine carries before injuring his ankle and didn’t return. He is set to miss 2-3 weeks with a high ankle sprain. Just another setback for the Jets this season. – Jacob Mummert

Next Week: Houston Texans (2-8)

32

Last week, I stated that the Texans would be back at 32 after facing the Titans. I was wrong. The Texans absolutely dominated the Titans on the road, in the rain forcing four interceptions from Ryan Tannenhill. Tyrod Taylor might actually be the best QB in Houston entering Week 12. – Justin Bauerle

I just don’t understand what the Chicago Bears are doing anymore. If this was a ploy so that Matt Nagy could prove their 10th overall pick was not cut out yet, then you ruined your investment. The Bears looked stale with Justin Fields and it was clear when Andy Dalton came in and immediately scored against the Ravens. I’m not sure what the plan for the future is here, but the front office needs to figure it out sooner than later. – Justin Bauerle

Next Week: Detroit Lions (3-7)
