The NFL power rankings for Week 11 have arrived and one thing seems evident - it isn’t a good thing for any NFC team the year after they make the Super Bowl in terms of repeating, and it has been that way for a long time.

It is tough to repeat in the NFC

Remember the Super Bowl 50 Carolina Panthers? That team was so good that NFL experts said they were heading to multiple championships. That didn’t quite happen.

The following season was the year Atlanta became the new enforcer of the NFC. Great talent, true. Great quarterback, tough defense? Yes, sir!

Now, two years removed from blowing the biggest lead in Super Bowl history, they can’t even beat the Browns, and the Dirty Birds are not even mentioned as a serious title team. This year the honor is going to the Philadelphia Eagles

All of the gushing that so many NFL experts did after they beat New England in Super Bowl 52 made the Eagles sound like they had five or more titles sealed up over the next decade. After losing to the Cowboys at home on Sunday night, Philly dropped to 4-5 on the 2018 season - and they don’t resemble last year's squad in the least.

According to CBS Sports, the Cowboys fourth-quarter run helped them hold and earn the 27-20 win against the Eagles Sunday night. Ezekiel Elliott ran through the Eagles defense like it was a practice session, gaining over 150 years on the ground.

In the end, the Eagles walked off the field to boos and jeers, not cheers.

It is tough to repeat for teams in the NFC, but why? That question is a tough one that doesn’t have a clear cut answer.

Okay, now onto the movers and shakers for Week 11.

Redskins quietly inching towards NFC East title

Yes, there is a lot of time left in the season, but the 6-3 Washington Redskins hold destiny in their own hands.

With the Eagles and Cowboys sputtering, and the Giants basically eliminated at 1-7, the Redskins can literally sew up the NFC East with wins the next three weeks.

Washington will face Houston, Dallas, and Philadelphia in their next three games, and if they happen to win each game, or just the two versus the Cowboys and Eagles they will have a solid grip on the NFC East division.

The Steelers, Saints, and Rams all kept surging, while the Lions, Bengals, and Falcons continue to fall backward in the standings as they continue with their up and down play.
