NFL Power Rankings: Week Eight

Ken McClishContributor IOctober 11, 2016

32. Rams

At least they lost the way they were supposed to. "They are who we thought they were!"


31. Buccaneers


30. Lions

Huh? The Lions possibly being the favorites in their next game? Oh wait, they play the Rams.


29. Browns

Crushed at home.


28. Titans

Hey...they didn't lose.


27. Chiefs

Just ain't gettin' it done.


26. Redskins

Well, that was nice. The front office said that Jim Zorn would be the coach through the rest of the season. At least they're giving him time to pack. They shouldn't have relinquished his "play calling duties" publicly.


25. Raiders

Back to losing ways. New starter Bruce Gradkowski?


24. Panthers QB and coach soon?


23. Seahawks

Hopefully the bye helped.


22. Jaguars


21. Bills

The Bills are on a win streak.


20. 49ers

Say hello to new starting QB Alex Smith.


19. Bears

Uhh...weren't these guys favored before being absolutely crushed on Sunday? The Bears have obvious issues.


18. Dolphins

Nice effort versus the Saints. Too bad they don't have a No. 1 QB nor a reliable WR who can catch when it matters most.


17. Jets

Nice win against one of the worst teams in the NFL.


16. Chargers

Did what they were supposed to.


15. Texans

"Know when to hold 'em. Know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away. Know when to run."


14. Packers

No looking ahead for these guys with their win. Now it's time for Favre Bowl II.


13. Ravens


12. Giants

"Omaha." I think the entire nation knows the Giants' snap count. Tough loss at home.


11. Falcons

Turnovers and sacks = ballgames lost.


10. Cowboys

Legitimizing win for Dallas.


9. Cardinals

Excellent win versus the Giants.


8. Eagles.

Lost to a terrible team last game. Bounced back with a win against another terrible team in tonight's game. Whatever helps.


7. Bengals

Hangover no more. Cedric Benson pummels the team that waived him.


6. Steelers

Great win against the Vikes. Two nice takeaways by the D at the right time. I don't think they're worthy of a higher place in the ranks as of yet though.


5. Patriots

Rolling along.


4. Vikings

Tough loss in Pittsburgh may help them down the road.


3. Broncos

Denver added a punter over their bye. I wonder if he still eats Snickers bars before games.


2. Colts

Something might be wrong. No 300-yard passing day for Peyton Manning?


1. Saints

The Saints are still marching.
