NFL Power Rankings, week 11: Rams still OK in bad division

Steven Jackson #39 of the St. Louis Rams runs against the San Francisco 49ers during an NFL game at Candlestick Park on November 14 2010 in San Francisco California.

Ranking makes things easier to understand...helps you make choices, sort data, and all that jazz. For the NFL, power rankings serve two purposes: 1) they provide a better picture of how teams stack up against the rest of the league, opponent adjustment in its most raw form, 2) they give writers something to fill valuable real estate while still spurring plenty of fan discussion. 

And how do the St. Louis Rams fare in the Power Rankings this week? Let's take a look after the jump.

St. Louis stays at #22 over at SBNation.

The Rams sit a game back in the NFC West after dropping one to the last place 49ers. The Rams have as good a chance as anyone to take the division.

Spagnuolo's bunch is still ahead of SF and ARI, but trails Seattle by two spots. 

PFT drops the Rams to #21 from #18 last week, adding this witty banter:

By the time the Rams are good enough to consistently win close games, they won’t have to.

ESPN puts the Rams at #23, down two spots this week. Here's Sando:

Issues in the Rams' secondary caught up to St. Louis in its OT loss at San Francisco.

The biggest issue with the Rams secondary was the odd decision to start Kevin Dockery in place of Bradley Fletcher. The second biggest issue in pass coverage is that glaring lack of any real ability to cover among the Rams outside linebackers.
