Time to reveal the NFL Power Rankings Week 8. Not too many surprises, except for the back-end with appearances from a couple of teams that were expected to be contenders this year for the Super Bowl.

Week 7 of the NFL season is officially in the books, and things are starting to get a lot more clear as teams are jockeying for playoff positions.

Who in the world is the best team in the NFC? Is the AFC really that much better?

The answers: 1) Who knows, and 2) Yes.

There were some major surprises over the weekend. Cleveland rocked (see what I did there) New Orleans in the Big Easy, Buffalo almost pulled off a most improbable upset, and Darren McFadden looked like a Marcus Allen-Bo Jackson hybrid while running all over Denver.

Dallas has even more questions. They are now at 1-5 and without Tony Romo for what appears to be a big chunk of the rest of the season,

But everyone saw that coming, right? Suuuuuuuure.

Did the wins (or in Buffalo's case, moral victory) move them up the NFL food chain?

Pittsburgh may have gotten a little help, but they still look like the team to beat. New England won a tough one in San Diego without much offense to speak of, and the Jets are holding firm despite not even playing.

Let's take a look at this week's power rankings.
