The Rams traded Akers to the Vikings successful September aft helium was a steadfast scratch successful Week 2, and second-year moving backmost Kyren Williams earned the starting spot for Los Angeles. There aren't galore blistery spot candidates successful Los Angeles close now, including astatine quarterback. Although Matthew Stafford's completion percent is 31st successful the NFL this season, it would beryllium a immense astonishment to spot the Rams determination connected from him. Stafford's $31 cardinal wage is guaranteed adjacent season, and astir importantly, it was evident successful Sunday's triumph implicit the Seahawks -- helium went 8-for-13 with 108 passing yards successful the 4th fourth -- however overmuch assurance manager Sean McVay has successful his quality successful late-game situations. -- Sarah Barshop

Current somesthesia of blistery seat: Cold

With a caveat, because, with an interim manager successful place, possibly the full unit is connected a blistery spot of sorts. Still, Graham's defence has been the spot of the Raiders since earlier Josh McDaniels was fired and Antonio Pierce was elevated supra Graham for interim coach. Or did you miss the 3 takeaways successful Sunday's nonaccomplishment astatine Miami, which kept Las Vegas successful the game?

Week 11 ranking: 16

Preseason blistery seat: GM Tom Telesco, manager Brandon Staley

The Chargers are past successful the AFC West (4-6), allowing 291.6 passing yards per game, 20 much than immoderate different team, and traded away cornerback J.C. Jackson, whom they paid $38.5 cardinal for 7 games.

Week 11 ranking: 20

Preseason blistery seat: Coach Ron Rivera
Current somesthesia of blistery seat: Boiling

The Commanders person mislaid to 2 struggling teams astatine location -- the Giants and Bears. It goes without saying Rivera and his unit are successful information of losing their jobs; astatine this point, the lone question becomes when. Does new proprietor Josh Harris hold until aft the season, oregon does helium marque a alteration aft different atrocious loss? Harris wanted to measure this unit for a afloat play erstwhile it wasn't nether the guidance of erstwhile proprietor Dan Snyder. But it's doubtful helium saw the play unfolding successful this manner, and truthful the inevitable determination could hap sooner than anyone ever desired. -- John Keim

24. Green Bay Packers (4-6)

Week 11 ranking: 27

Preseason blistery seat: GM Brian Gutekunst

The spot would've been hotter a fewer weeks ago, but suddenly, it looks similar the young roster that Gutekunst assembled astir backmost Jordan Love is starting to progress. Love, Gutekunst's handpicked successor to Aaron Rodgers, besides has shown immoderate stronger signs that helium could beryllium the semipermanent backmost successful Green Bay. The Packers person plentifulness of draught superior (five picks successful the archetypal 3 rounds) and a steadfast wage headdress for escaped bureau this coming offseason that they'll request to usage to bolster the roster, and it seems precise apt that Gutekunst volition inactive beryllium the 1 to usage it. -- Rob Demovsky

25. Atlanta Falcons (4-6)

Week 11 ranking: 24

Preseason blistery seat: QB Desmond Ridder
Current somesthesia of blistery seat: Hot

The crushed this is isn't boiling is due to the fact that Ridder is once again the starter -- reinstalled arsenic Atlanta's backmost connected Monday. He's apt going to get the remainder of the play to amusement whether helium tin beryllium the backmost of the Falcons' future. In 8 starts this play earlier being benched successful favour of Taylor Heinicke, Ridder completed 65.4% of his passes for 1,740 yards, six touchdowns, six interceptions and six fumbles mislaid portion rushing 32 times for 150 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Week 11 ranking: 23

Preseason blistery seat: Coach Robert Saleh, GM Joe Douglas
Current somesthesia of blistery seat: Warm

The Aaron Rodgers injury successful Week 1 flipped everything upside down, but that's nary excuse for total ineptitude connected offense. The offseason determination to marque Zach Wilson the QB2 has compromised the full season. Saleh's grounds is 15-29, Douglas 24-42. Those kinds of records usually get radical fired. Maybe they volition get a lifeline due to the fact that of the Rodgers situation. -- Rich Cimini



Orlovsky: Benching Zach Wilson won't assistance the Jets

Fulton yet got the bulk of snaps erstwhile again and played good for a three-game stretch. But manager Mike Vrabel pulled him again successful favour of Avery aft helium struggled successful Sunday's loss to the Jaguars, saying it was a non-injury-related coach's decision. It's unclear whether Fulton volition proceed to divided crippled reps with Avery. But it's starting to look much apt that helium won't beryllium backmost adjacent season. -- Turron Davenport

28. Chicago Bears (3-8)

Week 11 ranking: 29

Preseason blistery seat: WR Velus Jones Jr.
Current somesthesia of blistery seat: Boiling

Jones, a second-year wide receiver, has 3 catches for 9 yards and 4 rushes for 22 yards this season, and helium was a steadfast scratch for the Bears' past 2 games aft being benched. Critical penalties (a look disguise connected a punt instrumentality against New Orleans that peculiar teams coordinator Richard Hightower called "inexcusable") and drops (notably a wide-open touchdown against the Chargers) proceed to adhd up against Jones. It'll beryllium an uphill conflict for him to marque the game-day roster implicit Chicago's last six games, fixed the Bears look comfy experimenting with antithetic returners connected kickoff -- the 1 occupation helium was clinging to. It defies each logic that Jones remains connected the Bears' roster. His third-round draught presumption mightiness beryllium his lone remaining worth successful the NFL. -- Courtney Cronin

29. New York Giants (3-8)

Week 11 ranking: 30

Preseason blistery seat: RB Saquon Barkley
Current somesthesia of blistery seat: Hot

This is and volition stay a tricky one. Barkley has played good erstwhile helium has been connected the tract but does person different wounded connected the résumé aft a high ankle sprain outgo him 3 games earlier this season. Just past week, Barkley declared "loyalty means nothing" erstwhile it comes to the concern broadside of football. So, yes, he's a escaped cause again astatine the extremity of the season, and the Giants person different franchise tag disposable if they truthful desire. It leaves Barkley successful a tricky spot during the last six games with that ankle inactive healing and nary playoffs successful sight. -- Jordan Raanan

30. New England Patriots (2-8)

Week 11 ranking: 31

Preseason blistery seat: QB Mac Jones

A determination is owed successful the offseason connected Jones' fifth-year enactment for 2025, and the anticipation was that this play would look much similar his promising '21 rookie year. With a shaky violative enactment successful beforehand of him and 1 of the NFL's much underwhelming pass-catching corps to propulsion to, Jones has been pulled from 3 games and is 212-of-324 (65.4%) for 2,031 yards, with 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He has been sacked 21 times. -- Mike Reiss

31. Arizona Cardinals (2-9)

Brown has established himself arsenic the go-to receiver connected a Cardinals discourtesy that has fundamentally reset itself the past 2 weeks aft Kyler Murray returned. Brown is the squad person with 486 yards and 4 touchdowns connected 45 catches, and those numbers are expected to summation the much helium plays with Murray. Brown is successful the last twelvemonth of his rookie contract, which makes his aboriginal with the Cardinals unclear. But if Arizona is committed to Murray, it volition apt beryllium committed to Brown, who's 1 of his closest friends. -- Josh Weinfuss

32. Carolina Panthers (1-9)
