Following their loss to the Chicago Bears, the Detroit Lions continue to fall in power rankings. A potential injury to Matthew Stafford is also cause for concern, as is the thought that running back Jahvid Best could continue to miss more time with his concussion. Most power rankings have the Lions falling out of the top ten, while others already had them outside of it following consecutive losses to the 49ers and Falcons.
FOX Sports has the Lions at No. 13 in their Week 11 NFL power rankings:
13. The Lions never did find a rhythm on Sunday. Matthew Stafford was nursing a sore finger on his throwing hand and looked it. Not much more could have gone wrong for the Lions and now they are at risk of missing the playoffs. The upcoming schedule makes it more difficult, with two games against the Packers and one against the Saints.
That's a two spot drop for the Lions, who are hoping to contend for a wild card spot in the NFC North behind the Green Bay Packers. The loss to Chicago, division rivals, sets them back quite a bit, but they're still at 6-3 and in very good shape on the season.
