Carolina Panthers (@ MWSTheNatural) 9-2-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Eagles 38-27 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF Falcons 43-3 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: “BYE” Week (Week Twelve); AT JFF Vikings (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Unlike his simulated loss to the JFF Seahawks (which, for all practical purposes, was somewhat of an unfair loss), The Natural took his second league-advance-provoked sim loss to the JFF Eagles in stride. Now, Mr. Still-Number-One can relax a bit with a “BYE” Week in Week Twelve, and he will resume to action in Week Thirteen.

San Francisco 49ers (@ poefield109) 8-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Saints 28-17 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF N.Y. Giants 52-28 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: vs. JFF Redskins (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Seahawks (Week Thirteen)

Comment: JFF 49ers HB Frank Gore is going absolutely nuts the last few weeks. Case in point: In his performance against the JFF N.Y. Giants, Gore had not one … not two … not three … but FIVE rushing touchdowns. FIVE! That running back is on fire!! Big game coming up in Week Thirteen against the JFF Seahawks. That game might be pay-per-view worthy! (or at least, Twitch worthy!) We shall see!

Cleveland Browns (@ VitalMindz5) 10-0-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Bengals 42-10 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF Texans 33-14 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: AT JFF Falcons (Week Twelve); AT JFF Bills (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Well, well, well . . . guess who is the only unbeaten team in the league after eleven weeks of competition?!? (Note: Technically, both the JFF Panthers and JFF Seahawks have not lost to a human opponent, so both could validly argue that they are also “undefeated” after eleven weeks of competition). The JFF Browns are currently #1 in every statistical category there is on the defensive side of the ball (i.e., they have the #1 overall defense, #1 pass defense, #1 rushing defense, they are #1 in sacks, tied for #1 in interceptions, and they have allowed the least amount of points in the league after eleven weeks of league competition). At this point, the AFC North title and the #1 Seed in the AFC Playoffs is Cleveland’s to lose.

Cincinnati Bengals (@ rbbpaperwalls) 7-3-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Browns 42-10 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF Saints 41-17 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: AT JFF Texans (Week Twelve); AT JFF Buccaneers (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Usually, I do not allow a team to move UP in the Power Rankings after getting smashed by an opponent, but in this instance, the JFF Bengals did lose to the undefeated JFF Browns, so I am cutting them some slack. No time to sulk though … Cincinnati has two big games coming up against the playoff-hungry JFF Texans and JFF Buccaneers. If the JFF Bengals go 0-2, their playoff hopes might be dashed.

Baltimore Ravens (@ JohnnyWadd) 7-3-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Titans 27-3 (Week Ten)

Next Up: AT JFF Saints (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Chargers (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Musashi’s JFF Ravens are just plugging along … pacing themselves. Good match-up coming up against the AFC West leading JFF Chargers. Right now, if the JFF Bengals slip up down the stretch, the JFF Ravens have a very good chance of claiming the #6 Seed in the AFC Playoffs. We’ll see what happens.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (@ UNCLE___SAM) 7-3-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Falcons 35-6 (Week Ten); AT JFF Redskins 28-20 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: AT JFF Bears (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Bengals (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Three straight games against CPU-controlled teams could have the JFF Buccaneers on the verge of becoming complacent, but the reality is, Tampa Bay has no room for any type of complacency until they confirm a for-sure spot in the NFC Playoffs. Big game coming up against the AFC North’s JFF Bengals. So far, Top Dawg is 0-2 against human users from the AFC North. Think he might be fired up for this next inter-conference match-up?

Indianapolis Colts (@ ModeOne4Ever) 8-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Patriots 21-14 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: vs. JFF Jaguars (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Redskins (Week Twelve)

Comment: Even though Air Attack’s JFF Colts won their Week Eleven contest versus the JFF Patriots, the Indianapolis Owner / Coach was not happy with the two fumbles he had by FB Dorin Dickerson and QB Terrelle Pryor. “Not happy about those fumbles at all,” said Air after watching his team improve to 8-2-0. The JFF Colts have two CPU opponents before their big AFC match-up with the JFF Browns.

Seattle Seahawks (@ SamoanK1NG) 8-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF N.Y. Giants 30-12 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF Chiefs 44-26 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: vs. JFF Cardinals (Week Twelve); AT JFF 49ers (Week Thirteen)

Comment: The JFF Seahawks now have the most high-powered passing offense in the league thanks to QB Russell Wilson (who is playing out of his mind) and WR Percy Harvin (who had 21 receptions for 420 receiving yards and 3 receiving touchdowns in a victory against the CPU-controlled JFF Kansas City Chiefs). No team in the league has a more difficult and challenging Week Twelve / Week Thirteen schedule than the JFF Seahawks. The NFC West has all of the big “Twitch-worthy” games this week.

Arizona Cardinals (@ INGLEWOODD) 9-1-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Rams 17-14 (Week Eleven); Lost to the JFF Lions 17-14 (Week Twelve)

Next Up: AT JFF Seahawks (Week Twelve); AT JFF Falcons (Week Thirteen)

Comment: WHAT?!?!? The JFF Cardinals lost to WHO?!? Arizona Owner / Coach simply said, “The JFF Lions aired out my defense,” and left things at that. Consequently, the JFF Cardinals suffer a tie for the third largest drop in the Power Rankings this season (the largest drop in the Power Rankings this season was by the JFF Eagles, who went from #7 in the Power Rankings after Week Seven to totally out of the Power Rankings after Week Nine, and the second largest drop was the JFF Cowboys, who dropped eight spots after losing to the previously unranked JFF Seahawks in Week Six; The JFF Lions also dropped seven spots earlier this season after losing to the previously unranked JFF Packers in Week Three) No time for “self-pity parties” though, because the JFF Cardinals have a HUGE Week Twelve match-up coming up against their NFC West Division rival, the JFF Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys (@ TD33DORSETT) 7-3-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Jaguars 17-6 (Week Ten)

Next Up: AT JFF N.Y. Giants (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Eagles (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Well, the time has come for the JFF Cowboys to stake their claim on the NFC East Division title. If Dallas finishes the week 2-0 (against the JFF N.Y. Giants and JFF Eagles), then they will have all but wrapped up the division crown. On the other hand, if by chance they go 0-2 or 1-1 this week, then we still have ourselves an interesting race in the NFC East.

Houston Texans (@ deuce1413) 5-5-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Browns 33-14 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: vs. JFF Bengals (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Titans (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Deuce, the Owner / Coach of the JFF Texans, created a very thorough and eye-catching “Who is in the best position to earn a playoff berth in the AFC” spreadsheet. Kudos to him for that! That lets this Website Manager and Story Editor know that he is taking his last six games of the season very seriously. Big game coming up in Week Twelve against the JFF Bengals.

San Diego Chargers (@ jayqeezy) 7-3-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Raiders 38-13 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: vs. JFF Rams (Week Twelve); AT JFF Ravens (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Jon Jon is trying to make a push for the AFC West title, and if the JFF Chargers defeat the JFF Ravens in Week Thirteen, his chances of doing just that increase significantly. Even if San Diego loses to Baltimore by chance, the JFF Chargers are still in a great position to claim the #4 Seed in the AFC Playoffs. We shall see what happens!

Green Bay Packers (@ BarNone12000) 7-3-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Bears 49-32 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF Eagles 21-10 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: AT JFF Vikings (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Patriots (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Looks as though Tim Dog was able to overcome that disappointing performance against the JFF Panthers and gain more momentum toward claiming the rights to the NFC North Division title with his victory over the fading JFF Eagles. Two big games coming up this week – one within the division, and another one outside the conference – and the JFF Packers really need to win both of those games to stay ahead of the JFF Vikings and suddenly surging JFF Lions

Miami Dolphins (@ JoshHimself) 8-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Lions 30-13 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF Bills 18-10 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: AT JFF Broncos (Week Twelve); vs. JFF N.Y. Jets (Week Thirteen)

Comment: The JFF Dolphins WON … but they also LOST. Sound familiar? Miami becomes the fourth team this season that will have to suffer an Auto Pilot forfeited loss due to a violation of the league’s scheduling rules. Without getting too lengthy, Josh – the Owner / Coach of the JFF Dolphins – gave the League Commissioner the misleading impression that Ato a.k.a. “Da Kang’ (JFF Lions Owner / Coach) had basically went AWOL. Josh had even told Da Kang that if they could not play their game, he would be content with Da Commish simming the Week Ten contest via the league advance. Now, the JFF Dolphins will have to experience an Auto Pilot forfeit to the JFF Vikings during Week Sixteen competition. If Miami ends up missing the playoffs by one game, Josh is going to be crushed. If Detroit ends up missing the playoffs by one game, Da Kang might come looking for Josh.

Buffalo Bills (@ K-R-U-Z-702) 8-2-0

Most Recent Results: Defeated JFF Chiefs 38-31 (Week Ten); Lost to the JFF Dolphins 18-10 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: vs. JFF N.Y. Jets (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Browns (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Plain and simple, the JFF Dolphins have the JFF Bills number. Normally, Buffalo tends to exhibit a very high powered offense, but in their only two losses of the season (both to Miami), the JFF Dolphins have held their offense in check. Big game coming in Week Thirteen against the #1 defense in the league … the JFF Browns.

Detroit Lions (@ ah2dakang) 4-6-0

Most Recent Results: Lost to the JFF Dolphins 30-13 (Week Ten); Defeated JFF Cardinals 17-14 (Week Eleven)

Next Up: AT JFF Patriots (Week Twelve); vs. JFF Bears (Week Thirteen)

Comment: Look who is back!! The JFF Detroit Lions have not been in the Power Rankings since Week Five competition, but after pulling off what is arguably the biggest upset of the Regular Season thus far, Da Kang’s resilient JFF Lions squad returns to The Top 16. Ato actually wasn’t all that impressed with his own victory. Da Kang told this Story Editor, “I very much was confident I was going to win that game against Arizona. I still feel that I am one of the best Madden Ballers in the league, despite my losing record. I have been distracted by a lot of personal and job-related activities and obligations, but I still want to make a run for the NFC North title. I won’t lie though … I am livid about my loss to the JFF Dolphins. That Auto Pilot loss does not sit well with me at all. I feel cheated.” Who can blame Da Kang for being a bit angry? Big game coming up against the JFF Patriots.
