NFL standings and playoff picture 2014: Patriots, Cardinals out front in Week 11

It's Arizona, and then it's everyone else in the NFC West. We've got the updated standings through Week 11.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

A weird NFL season got weirder in week 11, with the Rams upsetting the Broncos in a 22-7 stunner, Arizona winning 14-6 without Carson Palmer over the Lions, and Kansas City beating the Seahawks, 24-20.

On Sunday Night Football, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck played in what turned out to be a game based on run offense by the Patriots and pass defense as New England beat Indianapolis, 42-20.

AFC East

1. New England Patriots (8-2)
2. Miami Dolphins (6-4)
3. Buffalo Bills (5-5)
4. New York Jets (2-8)

The Patriots moved to 8-2 with a big win over Indianapolis on Sunday Night Football. They've now won six straight games since losing on Monday night to Kansas City. The Dolphins won on Thursday night over Buffalo to stay on pace for a potential wild card spot.

AFC North

1. Cincinnati Bengals (6-3-1)
2. Baltimore Ravens (6-4)
3. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-4)
4. Cleveland Browns (6-4)

Pittsburgh plays Tennessee on Monday, but the AFC North remains the NFL's tightest division. Cleveland lost to Houston, meaning that the Ravens, Steelers and Browns all fall in line behind the Bengals with 6-4 records.

AFC South

1. Indianapolis Colts (6-4)
2. Houston Texans (5-5)
3. Tennessee Titans (2-7)
4. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9)

The Colts had a tough home loss against the New England Patriots on Sunday night, but the Texans had a much-needed win over the Cleveland Browns at home to get to .500 on the season.

AFC West

1. Denver Broncos (7-3)
2. Kansas City Chiefs (7-3)
3. San Diego Chargers (6-4)
4. Oakland Raiders (0-10)

The Chiefs look ready to battle the Broncos for AFC West supremacy after beating Seattle at home. They've won five straight since their loss to San Francisco, and will host the Broncos Nov. 30. The Chargers stayed close with a way too close win over Oakland.

NFC East

1. Philadelphia Eagles (7-3)
2. Dallas Cowboys (7-3)
3. New York Giants (3-7)
4. Washington (3-7)

The Eagles dropped to 7-3 after getting blasted in Green Bay, 53-20. Dallas had a bye in Week 11, but will have two games against Philadelphia over the next four weeks.

NFC South

1. Atlanta Falcons (4-6)
2. New Orleans Saints (4-6)
3. Carolina Panthers (3-7-1)
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-8)

Say hello to your new division-leading Atlanta Falcons, who survived against Carolina while New Orleans lost at home to Cincinnati. Tampa Bay won its second game of the season over Washington.

NFC West

1. Arizona Cardinals (9-1)
2. San Francisco 49ers (6-4)
3. Seattle Seahawks (6-4)
4. St. Louis Rams (4-6)

The Cardinals are 9-1 for the first time since 1948 and are the clear division leaders, but the 49ers moved into second place with a win over the New York Giants. Seattle fell in a tough loss to Kansas City.

NFC North

1. Detroit Lions (7-3)
2. Green Bay Packers (7-3)
3. Chicago Bears (4-6)
4. Minnesota Vikings (4-6)

The Lions may have the head-to-head edge over Green Bay, but the Packers look like division leaders after 108 points in two weeks. Detroit lost in Arizona, but Chicago beat Minnesota as they try to stay playoff-eligible.
