NFL Week 11 Power Rankings: Bengals, Cowboys, Patriots stumble – We head into Week 12


Week 11 of the NFL changed things up for the top playoff contenders, and some underperforming teams, surprising or not, remained frustrated throughout the season. No eliminations at the top, but enough to add a little extra drama to the NFC and AFC playoffs.

Plus, the league is more competitive, with more teams genuinely looking forward to the Super Bowl and at least wild card candidates. It’s perfect, and it makes us even more grateful for the great action the league took this Thanksgiving and has given us so much more over the past two months.

As Week 12 begins and the holidays approach, here’s how all 32 teams fare:

NFL Power Rankings Week 12

1. Philadelphia Eagles 9-1 (last week: 1)

The Eagles showed their resilience in just one week after losing Game 1 to the road to defeat the Colts. They did so because Jalen Hurts’ late defense and clutch plays tightened up, once again showing his strength as a complete team.

2. Kansas City Chiefs 8-2 (2)

The Chiefs need a lot of Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce to beat the Chargers, but they usually have too much shot time late in the game to deny. The Chiefs are now scouting everyone for a new Super Bowl pick.

3. Miami Dolphins 7-3 (4)

The Dolphins enjoyed a reunion, resting their rushing offense with a dynamic catch-and-rush duo of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, along with Jeff Wilson Jr. and Raheem Mostert. They hope to end a shocking first season under Mike McDaniel with an AFC East title.

4. Buffalo Bills 7-3 (5)

The Bills were unnerved by the odd midweek practice schedule and their game being rescheduled for a late trip to Detroit. They showed Moxie by not being impressed by it or returning to the Browns early. It worked well as a recovery game for a Josh Allen-led offense. Now the defense needs one of those games against the Lions.

5. Dallas Cowboys 7-3 (10)

The Cowboys beat Minnesota with a volatile, dynamic offense centered around Dak Prescott. They also went into a dominant aggressive play script that made Micah Parsons and the rest of their swarm defense most effective. Dallas continues to develop into a real threat in the NFC, even trailing Philadelphia.

6. Minnesota Vikings 8:2(3)

what is that? The Vikings’ defensive problems ultimately got them into trouble in Dallas’ offense, which couldn’t make the run or dodge another unlikely comeback. They must pause their march to the easy NFC North title ahead of a game at home against the Patriots.

7. Tennessee Titans 7-3 (7)

The Titans have a solid, disciplined, tide-breaking game plan against the Packers at Lambeau Field on Thursday night in their bid for another AFC South title. With Ryan Tannehill, they’re back to their groove.

9. Cincinnati Bengals 6-4 (13)

The Bengals found more backup punch around Joe Burrow, and they’re gearing up for bigger things if Ja’Marr Chase returns anytime soon. They can get really hot at the right time, similar to what they did in the 2021 Super Bowl.

10. Seattle Seahawks 6-4 (11)

After a crushing loss to the Buccaneers in Munich, the Seahawks regrouped offensively and defensively. With the 49ers at No. 1 in the West, they need to warm up on a favorable schedule to secure at least one wildcard.

11. San Francisco 49ers 5-4 (9)

The 49ers have become a complete team capable of beating any type of offensive team with its explosive playmaker. Despite some key injuries, they still have a strong defense at every level. They’ll be looking to make a big No. 1 statement Monday night against the Cardinals in Mexico City.

12. New York Giants 7-3 (8)

The Giants’ run defense issues have been exposed, with limited firepower when Daniel Jones or Saquon Barkley aren’t running. They may also have been surprisingly overdue in some unlikely victory outcomes.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-5 (12)

With Tom Brady playing at a higher level during his claimed two-game winning streak, the Buccaneers regained full control of the NFC South. They can lead the standings and make the playoffs when it matters most.

16. New York Jets 6-4 (14)

The Jets’ offensive problems, Zach Wilson’s no passing game and a horrible run game, minus Breece Hall, will keep chasing them no matter how good their defense is. Her surprise bid for a wild-card playoff berth has been in serious jeopardy for the past two months.

17. Los Angeles Chargers 5-5 (16)

The Chargers continued to play their best offense against a declining defense, but it wasn’t enough to get high above .500 after two tough losses Sunday night. Justin Herbert needs to lead them to the playoffs as much as possible.

18. Atlanta Falcons 5-6 (21)

The Falcons closed the gap on the Buccaneers a bit by beating the Bears in the NFC South, but everyone knew their defense was too heavy to legitimately keep them in the wild-card mix. To do this, they need to defeat the Commander next week.

19. Detroit Lions 4-6 (24)

The Lions have won three games in a row, similar to the Commanders, who had a slight edge over them, but lost to them in Detroit in Week 2, nullifying the offense.

20. Indianapolis Colts 4-6-1 (19)

The Colts appear to be a better-coached and better-organized team under Jeff Saturday. Their defense kept coming back, with Jonathan Taylor running like he was helping himself, but Matt Ryan and the passing game still held them back in the tougher spots.

21. Arizona Cardinals 4-6 (20)

The Cardinals have faced a ton of offensive injuries under Cliff Kingsbury. That puts more pressure on a defense that has been doing well of late, as the 49ers play neutral offense at home.

22 Green Bay Packers 4-7 (18)

what is that? With so many opportunities for the Packers, Aaron Rodgers rallied himself and beat the Titans with his passing game. But they continued to execute poorly on offense and defense under Matt LaFleur, and the season is now completely lost.

23. New Orleans Saints 4-7 (26)

The Saints earned even more respect with a clutch win over the Rams, as their young offensive players played an important role in supporting an understaffed defense. They still need to find a true franchise QB despite Andy Dalton’s non-prime-time another positive.

24. Los Angeles Rams 3-7 (22)

Matthew Stafford was knocked down again after fighting early in New Orleans without Cooper Kupp. The Rams have to beat the Saints to avoid further Super Bowl hangover. The offense may have run deep, but the top defense is the biggest disappointment as it all but eliminates any remaining chances of a playoff return.

25. Cleveland Browns 3-7 (23)

The Browns are hoping to at least be a wild-card factor in the AFC playoffs until Deshaun Watson returns in Week 13. But what’s interesting is that Jacoby Brissett and the overall offense aren’t the real reason they’re well below .500, but a disappointing defense, especially on the run.

26. Pittsburgh Steelers 3-7 (25)

The Steelers let Kenny Pickett relax a bit, but in T.J. Watts. Mike Tomlin needs to consider an offensive coordinator replacement in response to Pickett’s sack in 2023.

27. Jacksonville Jaguars 3-7 (29)

The Jaguars have seen some improvement, mostly related to Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne Jr. and Christian Kirk, an offensive triplet under Doug Pedersen. However, it’s clear that their young defense needs more time to grind. Expect them to go strong all the way in 2023.

28. Las Vegas Raiders 3-7 (31)

The Raiders opted to focus their offense entirely on Davante Adams and Josh Jacobs, letting their defense dictate Max Crosby’s ability. That added up to a much-needed overtime victory over the Broncos to at least leave last place.

29 Denver Broncos 3-7 (27)

Under Nathaniel Hackett, the Broncos finally hit new lows offensively, structurally and in form, dropping to the bottom of the pack with a 10-0 home loss to the Raiders. Russell Wilson was also unable to dig deep and deliver.

30. Chicago Bears 3-8 (28)

As expected, the Bears’ offense ran all the way to the end in Atlanta, only to fall short due to a lackluster defense. Concerns now rest on the shoulders of Justin Fields, who could really dampen optimism as the season progresses.

31 Carolina Panthers 3-8 (30)

The Panthers couldn’t find any real offense in their tougher defensive battles, no matter who was passing or running. It’s a shame they wasted another strong defense under Steve Wilkes.

32. Houston Texans 1-8-1 (32)

The Texans just played with quarterback Davis Mills and poor run defense. They want more draft money to improve, including the No. 1 pick.

The best adds for week 17 of Fantasy Football 2022

Time to open week 17 of the 2022 NFL season with a lot of things to settle in our beloved league before the postseason begins. There are still open wild card spots left and some divisions have yet to know their winners. With only two rounds left in the regular season, we will still see “fights” on several fronts.

In our favorite virtual game, things are a little different. It is time for the grand finals in most fantasy football leagues, with some GMs still fighting for “bronze medals” and others for better placements. And since nobody likes to lose, today’s tips are not only for the grand finalists, but for everyone trying to finish higher on the “podiums”.

Whether it is to compete for the grand final or even an honorable third place, the waiver wire is once again necessary for those who aim to strengthen their team with an eye on the most important duel of the whole season. So, once again The Playoffs is here, being your best friend to help you find a good name to replace a considerable loss or even a player hidden in the huge waiver wire list that can contribute to your success in the “hour of truth”.

It’s worth remembering that you can’t be too careful when giving up a name in order to add a player via waivers, since placing a certain athlete on the market can mean an unwanted improvement to an opposing team.

To be eligible in our list, players have to be on, at most, 60% of the Fantasy Football squads, which is the most popular and famous platform among Brazilians.

It is also possible that the names mentioned here are in a higher or lower percentage of squads in other applications, such as Yahoo, ESPN and Sleeper, although the tendency is that the average is similar.

Again, we reiterate that we use as a parameter the PPR score (when points are computed per reception), again because it is the standard and most famous model, currently, of the game, having stolen the “crown” of the old Standard (or non-PPR) in recent years.

With that and without further ado, let’s get to the names for the week 17 – FOR TITLE MY FRIENDS!


Tyler Allgeier – Atlanta Falcons (17.3% rostered*)

With four consecutive losses in the league and no chance of qualifying for the playoffs, the Atlanta Falcons are no longer contending for big things this year. Therefore, after the bye week, who has been gaining space in the team round after round is running back Tyler Allgeier. The freshman is increasingly participating in snaps and his number of carries has increased significantly, with him passing for 100 rushing yards in Week 15 on 17 attempts, and reaching 74 yards on 18 attempts in Week 16. The number of passes received by the youngster has also skyrocketed, with him managing four receptions for 43 yards in the last round, in five times he was targeted. The Falcons face the Arizona Cardinals, who are also not contending for anything this season and have one of the worst defenses against the run game in the entire NFL. Allgeier should deliver good points. Add him if he is available.

James Cook – Buffalo Bills (33.8% rostered)

The Bills are already guaranteed in the playoffs and have clinched the AFC East. The team is still aiming for the bye week in the first round of playoffs and for that they need to keep winning their games. Another point that Buffalo wants to find a solution for is in the ground game, perhaps the only weak point of a team that has been completely well put together so far. And that’s where James Cook comes in, who is increasingly involved in the team’s offensive game and has been matching up well. In the last game against the Chicago Bears, there were 11 attempts for 99 yards and a ground TD for the No. 28, who has been getting more and more involved and tends to take over the backfield of the team in the playoffs. He should continue to be very active and could be an important player to add to your roster.

*Percentage of teams in official NFL Fantasy leagues that have this athlete on their roster


Isaiah Hodgins – New York Giants (0.3% rostered)

The Giants are still in contention. The team’s defense has grown in production and, amazingly, Daniel Jones has been taking good care of the oval ball and making interesting starts. With the QB well protected and able to find passes, a name that has been gaining more and more action in New York’s offense is Isaiah Hodgins, who has had plenty of offensive carries in the team’s last four games. All right, the commitment now is against the Indianapolis Colts’ secondary, which is one of the strongest against wide receivers, but Hodgins is becoming Jones’ ball security and in a team that needs to win to keep dreaming, the trend is good passes from the QB to the WR. Keep an eye on him.

Jahan Dotson – Washington Commanders (7.9% rostered)

A name mentioned last week that is once again being remembered in this column due to the Washington Commanders WR’s great form. Shrouded in expectations before the season started, Dotson did not mesh well early in the year with Carson Wentz, but when the former Eagles and Colts player got injured and Taylor Heinicke took over the quarterback spot for the Commanders, Dotson’s numbers skyrocketed and the WR started to show up even more than Curtis Samuel, who was Wentz’s safety ball in the first few games of the 2022 NFL season. The freshman is coming off TDs noted in Week 15 and 16 and with a good load. He should continue to be important for Washington this final stretch, even if Wentz returns to the team as he did last round.


Cole Kmet – Chicago Bears (57.0% rostered)

That the Bears have grown during the year and displayed a better game than what we saw in the first half of the season, that no one can deny. The growth came mainly through Justin Fields, who overnight changed “from water to wine” and started to show good numbers throwing and running the ball, which we had not seen until then in the career of the once promising QB drafted by Chicago. With Fields’ growth, the direct beneficiary was TE Cole Kmet, who got a lot of carries and a significant gain in offensive carries, becoming one of the main, if not the main, offensive weapon of the Bears. In Week 17, Kmet faces the defense of the Denver Broncos, one of the worst teams in the league and the 5th worst in scoring TEs.

Juwan Johnson – New Orleans Saints (12.5% rostered)

Another name repeated around here. Juwan Johnson has grown quite a bit, especially after Michael Thomas got injured and is out for the rest of the season. As Chris Olave also suffers from physical problems, Johnson is gaining ground in the New Orleans offense and has been showing good rapport with Andy Dalton. The Saints were virtually eliminated, but managed to grow, recovered and are now fighting for a wild card spot, or even the division, since the leader Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been skating. Keep an eye on Juwan Johnson, who should have plenty of carries in this final stretch of the season.


Brock Purdy – San Francisco 49ers (27.3% rostered)

A regular around here, Brock Purdy was a real find for the San Francisco 49ers the year after the injuries to Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo. I’ll say it again, the 49ers have one of the most organized teams in the entire league, with a super protective offensive line, great receivers, healthy George Kittle blocking and receiving passes, and the “icing on the cake” Christian McCaffrey, who came in during the year, running the ball or receiving passes. With so many standouts around, Purdy has stepped in and has been doing his job, keeping California’s team as one of the favorites to win the title. Some say that the team has been playing even better than when Jimmy G was the starter.

With so many lures, it is easier for Brock Purdy to find free receivers, making important points in the FF. Add him, it’s the last chance.

None of Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles is a solution for the Colts.

None of Matt Ryan, Sam Ehlinger, or Nick Foles is a solution for the Colts.

Jeff Saturday made one last adjustment. It was ineffective.

With the Indianapolis Colts’ offense sputtering, Saturday made the decision to activate Nick Foles as the starting quarterback for their game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Matt Ryan’s deterioration has been evident in recent weeks, as the Colts have struggled to move the ball down the field. Saturday believed Foles may provide a spark to the offense moving forward.

The Colts were defeated 20-3 by the Chargers despite only managing 173 yards of total offense. Foles struggled throughout the whole game, going 17 of 29 (59%) for 143 yards, three interceptions, and a 31.9 quarterback rating. For the majority of the evening, Foles resembled the third-string quarterback the Colts have used for the majority of the season.

Despite all the speculation about how Foles might assist the Colts in moving the ball down the field, nothing of the kind occurred Monday night. Michael Pittman Jr.’s 19-yard reception was the game’s longest play. The Colts had a dismal 0-10 record on third down. The only team this season with a worse third down conversion rate? The Colts lost to the New England Patriots in Week 9 and finished with a record of 0-14.

After the game, Saturday stated, “Pretty straightforward – can’t turn it over.” You know, you can’t leave the defense on the field, so you have to convert on third downs offensively, get them off the field.

Again attempting to bear the burden, the Chargers’ quarterback Justin Herbert was sacked four times and forced into two fumbles. However, it is hard to compete when the offense is as terrible as it was on Monday night.

Foles said, “I believe we never found a rhythm as an offense. “I believe the points are clear. Three points is never going to be sufficient, to be honest. As a result, our offensive never really found its groove. And the quarterback is where it all begins. We also need to play well the whole game to attempt to establish a rhythm.

The truth is that under these conditions, Foles was never going to succeed. You can discuss Foles’ incredible 2017 campaign, in which he entered at the tail end of the campaign and guided the Philadelphia Eagles to a championship. However, Foles was surrounded that season by a fantastic Eagles squad. Not the Colts.

The Colts’ protection problems again as they allowed seven sacks in the game. The Colts have already allowed 56 sacks in 2022, and they are currently on track to surpass the previous high mark set by the team in a single season. Even while Saturday suggested that some of those sacks could have resulted from field coverage further back, Foles’ pocket continued to open up fast.

Along with playing alongside players he is still getting acquainted to, Foles was under pressure for the duration of the game. Early last week, it was made public that before the Chargers game, Foles will practice with the starting offense for the first time. Alec Pierce, Parris Campbell, and Pittman received some of his few passes.

The moment a shift occurs, Foles said, “you step in and try to become acclimated as fast as you can and, you know, get the timing down and everything.” “Our practice week was incredibly productive. It’s disappointing that the execution fell short of what we required to win this game.

It was almost hard for Foles to walk in and perform effectively in that circumstance. When you add it to the experienced quarterback’s poor choices and misfires, the offense had the worst appearance in the NFL. The Denver Broncos, the only club with a lower scoring average (15.5) than the Indianapolis Colts (16.5), at least managed to score a touchdown in their lopsided defeat to the Los Angeles Rams. After the game, their head coach was sacked as well.

The Colts’ roster contains no quarterbacks who can save this squad. Father Time has finally caught up with Ryan, who now throws with little to no velocity, struggles to handle the football, and appears to be moving more slowly than ever. Despite having a better arm, Foles struggles to move properly and makes terrible judgments while playing football with players with whom he has barely ever practiced.

You might argue that having Sam Ehlinger start again would be beneficial, but there is little hope that he would inspire the offense either. Early in the season, Ehlinger made two starts and went winless, including the humiliating loss in New England that ended the reign of previous head coach Frank Reich. Ehlinger is still the backup quarterback because evidently Saturday and the rest of the staff do not believe he can do any better.

Because the rest of the offense is a disaster, none of these quarterbacks are the solution. There are still protection difficulties with the offensive line, tight ends, and running backs. Defenses are sitting on every route because the Colts’ passing strategy and play-calling are so basic. None of the three quarterbacks can improve the offense to a level that would offset these problems.

Unfortunately, the crime cannot be corrected this year. For the Colts to have a reliable attack once more, new coaches and players at crucial spots are required. Expect a lot of the same play from this unit during the next two games up to that point.

JJ Watt announces NFL retirement

JJ Watt is hanging up his boots. On Tuesday (27), the Arizona Cardinals defensive end announced that he is retiring from the NFL, via a post on Twitter.

“Koa’s (defensive end’s daughter) first NFL game, last home game of my career,” wrote the star, posing in photos alongside his daughter and wife, Chicago Red Stars forward Kealia. “My heart is filled with nothing less than love and gratitude. It has been an absolute honor and pleasure.”

A three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Watt is a future Hall of Famer. He was the 11th overall pick in the 2011 Draft by the Houston Texans. There, he played until the end of the 2020 season, when he announced his move to Arizona.

In Texas, he played 128 games, including eight for the playoffs, adding 21 more for the Cardinals, one of them for the postseason, in last year’s Wild Card round against the Los Angeles Rams. In all, there are 149 starters on the field, 111.5 sacks, 580 tackles, 191 tackles for loss of yardage, 313 QB hits, one safety, and two interceptions.

When it comes to awards, the list is also extensive. He was three times named AP Defensive Player of the Year (2013, 2015 and 2016), once Walter Payton Man of the Year (2018), 2017 Sportsman of the Year, five times selected to the Pro Bowl (2012 to 2015 and 2018) and six times to the All-Pro team (2012 to 2015 and 2018).
