NFL power rankings, Week 12: Lions fall out of top 10

Unsurprisingly, the Detroit Lions' stay in the top 10 is over in most NFL power rankings thanks to their loss on Sunday.

After going on the road to Chicago and completing a season sweep of the Bears, the Detroit Lions were in the top 10 across the board in NFL power rankings. Now, though, after going on the road to Pittsburgh and losing a very winnable game, the Lions have dropped out of the top 10 in all but one set of rankings. Take a look:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which will take on the Lions this week, are ranked 27th (SB Nation), 28th (ESPN), 28th (CBS Sports), 27th (FOX Sports) and 28th (Pro Football Talk). Two straight wins have gotten Tampa Bay out from the very bottom of the power rankings, but they'll need to keep winning to get out of the low 20s.
