Week 11 NFL Power Rankings: CBS Sports Raises Vikings One Spot

The Minnesota Vikings suffered a bad loss on Monday Night Football, and most Week 11 Power Rankings reflect that in a big way. But the loss was to the undefeated Green Bay Packers, so most power rankings are keeping them in relatively the same place. Still though, they find themselves near the bottom of most power rankings this week.

CBS Sports actually bumps them up one spot:

24. They just aren't close to being in the same class with the Packers. The rest of the season has to be about Christian Ponder growing as a quarterback.    

That's one spot up from their previous spot, at No. 25, though it's mostly due to the other teams dropping. Pete Prisco is maintaining that the Vikings should hold based on the fact that they played the Packers, and everybody loses to the Packers. But other teams (like the Browns) moving down excessively has led to the Vikings getting a small bump.
