We are back with our week eight Power Rankings. Once again we have a group of the finest minds from around the UK to rank all 32 teams and produce an overall rankings that should be as fair and correct as possible.
Perhaps surprisingly there are no crazy moves up or down this week. the Ravens are the biggest movers as they move up five spots into the top 10.
At the other end it is bad news for the Brioncos and Texans who both fall after tough losses in divisional games.
But where is your team ranked? Let us know on Twitter and/or Facebook if you think your team is too low, too high or just about right.
This week’s rankers are Adam Wilson, Ben Rulton, Mark Ross, Hayden Shaw, Ryan Tomkins, Wes Adnerton, Adam Murfet, Rowan Smith, Paddi Cooper, Nick Truss, Tom Young, Stephen Edwards and myself, Dave Gray.
32 – Miami Dolphins
Does holding on to the 32 spot count as a win?
31 – Cincinnati Bengals
They haven’t traded A.J. Green away yet. I guess that is a positive?
30 – Washington Redskins
Have failed to reach double figures in three of the past four weeks. The one they did – Miami.
29 – Atlanta Falcons
I am honestly not sure what to even write about them now. Just hopeless.
28 – New York Jets
Get used to the ghost jokes Jets fans.
27 – New York Giants
Not the lowest ranked team in New York. Congratulations.
26 – Los Angeles Chargers
A bit like the Falcons, it is hard to know where the Chargers go from here. Are they going to be drafting high enough to get Rivers’ replacement?
25 – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
A bye week but Jameis Winston still threw two picks
24 – Denver Broncos
It was all set up for them to prove they were for real. They didn’t.
23 – Tennessee Titans
Ryan Tannehill providing such a boost to the offence should be the final nail in Mariota’s Titans’ career
22 – Cleveland Browns
A big game with New England. Baker Mayfield hasn’t done too well against elite defences in his NFL career.
21 – Pittsburgh Steelers
Could the Dolphins actually try and win this game on Sunday to improve their pick from the Minkah Fitzpatrick trade?
20 – Jacksonville Jaguars
Whisper it, but is the Gardner Minshew experience running out of steam?
19 -Arizona Cardinals
A three game winning streak sees them rise up the ranks.
18 – Oakland Raiders
There was no shame in losing to that Green Bay team
17 – Chicago Bears
The Saints are a great team but that was really disappointing
16 – Philadelphia Eagles
A huge game for the division and they blew it. It looks a long way back from here
15 – Detroit Lions
Another team that came up short ina prove it game
14 – Dallas Cowboys
I expected a much bigger jump that this after an impressive win over the Eagles
13 – Los Angeles Rams
Jalen Ramsey could end up being a great move for the Rams. Interesting to see how they do against better opposition.
12 – Carolina Panthers
It doesn’t seem like Cam is that close to a return and they don’t really need it. A week off was probably needed for Christian McCaffrey
11 – Houston Texans
The big win against the Chiefs followed by a big letdown. Just so hard to really buy in on the Texans
10 – Indianapolis Colts
Jump their division rivals and that win gives them the early tiebreaker over them. That was huge
9 – Minnesota Vikings
The Lions had been playing some good football but they Vikings handled them easily. Impressive
8 – Buffalo Bills
Will that offence be able to do enough in January?
7 – Seattle Seahawks
Just ran all over by Lamar Jackson. they really couldn’t handle him. Worrying signs for one of the early front runners
6 – Baltimore Ravens
Questions before last week about the teams ability to beat the better teams. That went out the window with a hammering of the Seahawks.
5 – Kansas City Chiefs
Mahomes injury seems to be not too serious which seems amazing after seeing his kneecap around his leg.
4 – Green Bay Packers
Dominated the Raiders. They are just a really good team. If the offence canput it together then they are dangerous.
3 – New Orleans Saints
Drew Brees could be back this week. Look out NFC
2 – San Francisco 49ers
Almost lost the number two spot after holding on to the unbeaten record and shutting out an opponent. A little harsh. A big test coming up with the Panthers
1 – New England Patriots
Couldn’t get all the votes last week but now it is a unanimous number one. That defence is something else.
