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:

The Giants move to (+5), and off the bubble. ESPN's rank of #12 seems high, but with games coming up against the Saints, Packers, Cowboys, and Jets, they will have their chance to prove they belong there, or fall lower.

On the Bubble:
Saints (+6), Chiefs (+6)

Teams APR likes more than ESPN:

On the bubble:
Jaguars (-7)
