Week 11 NFL Power Rankings: The Lions Are Now An Elite NFC Contender

Mario Mergola ranks every team in the NFL with the Detroit Lions proving they are an elite NFC team.

12. Miami Dolphins (LW: 11)

The Dolphins had done everything right in their three games prior to Week 10 — one combined turnover, road wins in Jacksonville and Chicago, and bigger margins of victory each week. Unfortunately for the Dolphins, they ran up against one of the NFL’s best teams in Detroit, and couldn’t quite pull out their third road win in four weeks. Losing to the Lions isn’t a backbreaker — Detroit is 7-2, after all — but a 5-4 record in the AFC suddenly brings Miami down a peg in the playoff race. Things should become a little clearer after their Week 11 Thursday Night Football matchup with the Bills in Miami.
