2011 NFL Wildcard Weekend Power Rankings

These 2011 NFL Wildcard Weekend Power Rankings are based on the latest odds to win the upcoming Super Bowl as found at SBG Global.  All Playoffs teams are included as these are the rankings of teams heading into the Wildcard Weekend, though not all will be playing.

The ( ) represents the Week 16 ranking.  Gambling911.com did not feature rankings for the final regular season week as so many of the games being played had little meaning.

The top three ranked teams have retained their positions, though Atlanta and Pittsburgh are in a dead heat.

Interestingly enough, the next two teams ranked within the top 5, New Orleans and Philadelphia, are wildcard teams.  The number 6 team, Baltimore, also plays during Wildcard Weekend.

The Green Bay Packers come in at number 8 and were not ranked among the top 10 during Week 16.  This club, however, has made frequent appearances throughout the regular season and were at one time ranked number one.  The Packers have been plagued by injuries.

Despite a stellar season that resulted in an AFC West win and home field advantage during the Wildcard Playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs still cannot find any love.  Kansas City would pay out $3500 for every $100 bet at SBG Global if they were to win the 2011 Super Bowl.  Amazingly, they never once made the Gambling911.com Power Rankings top 10 during the 2010 regular season and still don’t this week, coming in at number 11.
