NFL power rankings: Vikings plunder their way to the top as Eagles slip to No. 2


It took the first 10 weeks of the 2022 NFL season but there was finally some real drama.

The Washington Commanders upset the Philadelphia Eagles to end their undefeated streak while the Minnesota Vikings completed a massive comeback against the Buffalo Bills to win in overtime. The Vikings and Eagles will change spots in the latest power rankings ahead of Week 11.

The Kansas City Chiefs picked up a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, making it look a bit easier than initially expected. The Green Bay Packers also pulled off an upset over the Dallas Cowboys in overtime.


There’s been a lot of moving and shaking in the latest rankings.
