The Week 10 upsets have rippled through the NFL and knocked some teams down in the standings, according to Nick Wright and his “First Things First” committee. Meanwhile, the consistent teams that have been destroying their competitors are climbing the ladder.

Chiefs stay atop Nick’s Week 11 NFL rankings; The Cowboys, the Bills plummet and the 49ers rise
Nick Wright, Chris Broussard, Kevin Wildes and James Jones reveal Nick’s NFL levels entering Week 11 in the NFL.
Removed: Indianapolis Colts, Cleveland Browns, Branches of Los Angeles, New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Las Vegas Raiders, Denver Broncos
Wright’s thoughts: “Two new ones, the Rams and the Saints. Something interesting about this level, four of those 10 teams don’t have their first-round pick next year. The Browns, Broncos and Rams traded a quarterback for she, and the Saints. traded him so they could have Chris Olave. Well done, Saints. Now you’re not going to be in the desert forever, or anything.”
Single removal: Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago bones, Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals
Wright’s thoughts: “Any of those teams lose this week, they’re out. Two of them play each other. Chicago and Atlanta play each other. The Cardinals play the Niners on Monday Night Football. The Jags are going to have a bye, so they’re going to do that. be sure.”
Run The Damn Ball!: Commanders of Washington, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers
Wright’s thoughts: “Do what you know best at this point. You can’t trust any of these quarterbacks right now, what they’ve shown us. While I like [Taylor] Heinicke more than [Carson] Wentz. By the way, I think the committee gave the Packers a lot of respect, because we rate them a lot higher than their win-loss record suggests.”
Just enter: Los Angeles Chargers, New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks
Wright’s thoughts: “These three teams, any one of them would be thrilled, they just want to get into the playoffs. It’s sad that the Chargers are at this level. They had legitimate Super Bowl expectations this season, but they’re incredibly blown away. The Jets. – Robert Saleh stay with those receipts. I hope he doesn’t watch this show. And then Seattle will come in because Geno Smith is on the periphery of the MVP conversation.”
Occasionally dominant: Buffalo Bills, Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys
Wright’s thoughts: “Sometimes they look great, other times they look like a 6-3 team, which is fine. The Cowboys, sometimes they look amazing. The Titans, it’s like, oh my God, Jeffery Simmons is running down the field, Derrick Henry is running . for 200 yards, and then the Bills, it’s like, Josh Allen, he hasn’t thrown an incompletion in the last 17 minutes of football. And sometimes it feels like, oh, anybody can beat them.”
NO classification: Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants
Wright’s thoughts: “Those three teams are a combined 23-4. Good for them. I like them. They’re all good. They’re not as good as their record suggests, none of them. And they’re not as good as the six. teams for in front of them. I’m happy for these teams. They’re all going to make the playoffs, and their fans should be thrilled with what they’ve done so far.”
Legit scary: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals
Wright’s thoughts: “Nobody wants to face any of those three teams in the playoffs. I’ve been told he hates the Bucs. The committee has written me off.”
Co-no. 1 Competitors: Miami Dolphins, San Francisco 49ers
Wright’s thoughts: “Weapons galore on both of these teams. Miami obviously has the better quarterback. San Francisco has the better defense.”
Excellent irritant: Kansas City Chiefs
Wright’s thoughts: “Kevin Wildes made me start reading the YouTube comments for this show. You know what’s a very common reason? “I can’t stand Nick. He’s so arrogant when he talks about the Chiefs, and he’s actually made me dislike the Chiefs, and it’s really frustrating because he’s right.’ Oh, it’s irritating how excellent they are. Even more irritating when they suddenly turn Kadarius Toney into the player the Giants thought he would be. When will Chris Jones suddenly win Defensive Player of the Year? Oh, maybe.”
