NFL: Week 11 APR vs ESPN

What this is

A comparison of APR's Week 11 power rankings with ESPN's rankings for the same week of games. This acts as a sanity check (both ways) to see what teams are over- or underrated.

Only teams that are at least 9 positions apart are listed. The number in parentheses is the difference between APR's rank and ESPN's rank.

Teams ESPN likes more than APR:

On the bubble:
Buccaneers, Seahawks (+8). For the second week in a row, the Buccaneers have won by 15+ points, and it's starting to show up in APR's rankings.

Teams APR likes more than ESPN:

Lions, Browns (-9)
As usual, although closer this week than last. I'm not sure there's a good ranking for teams like these, particularly the Browns.
On the bubble:
Titans (-8)
