2011 NFL Power Rankings, Week 11: Denver Broncos Move To No. 20 In SB Nation's Latest Offerings

Since Tim Tebow took over as the Denver Broncos starting quarterback in mid-October, the team has gone 3-1. "Just win, baby," as former Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis used to say. The Broncos are the only AFC West team lately doing that. In SB Nation's Week 11 NFL power rankings, the Broncos move up to No. 20, a three-spot move. Here's what Joel Thorman had to write about the team:

20. Denver Broncos (4-5, LW: 23): Well, that's 3-1 under Tim Tebow this season. How long can it last? As long as they keep winning. One of the most surprising parts of this week is that Denver is only a game back in the AFC West.

The 5-4 Raiders do rank ahead of the Broncos at No. 16, but the San Diego Chargers continue to slip. They are on a four-game losing streak and fell a spot to No. 18. Will they continue to be an inconsistent team? They face the Bears this week.

The Broncos can continue their climb up the rankings by defeating the No. 13 New York Jets on Thursday night. But more importantly, the Broncos can continue to stalk the Raiders for the AFC West lead--something unimaginable in October.
