ClanRam 2011 NFL Power Rankings: Week 3
Things keep on shifting in the Power Rankings world. The Detroit Lions continue to impress with their third win in a row this season, cracking the Top Six. The New England loss to the Buffalo Bills gives the rankings a new #2 team in the Saints, who outscored the Houston Texans in Week Three. Meanwhile, the bottom of the rankings are starting to take shape with some winless teams as well as some one-win organizations that appear to be struggling at the moment.
