Week 8 NFL Power Rankings: Chiefs Worst to First

NFLTeams
A power ranking of all 32 NFL teams after week 7 play.

The Twist: Each week my top 12 ranked teams will consist of 6 NFC teams and 6 AFC teams since 6 from each conference will qualify for the post season. I reflect the top 12 teams most likely to make the playoffs each week.

Last season the Chiefs spent most of the year at the bottom of the NFL rankings, but this week as the only remaining undefeated team, the 7-0 Chiefs deserve the top spot. How long KC can maintain that top spot remains to be seen with two battles with the Broncos coming up soon.

TOP 12:
The Ravens fell to 3-4 after losing in Pittsburg, and fall out of the top 12 teams. That moved the opportunistic 4-3 Chargers into the top 12 as they benefit from loses by Ravens, Dolphins, and Titans.

With the Colts handing the Broncos their first loss, the Colts move up to 3 and the Broncos down to 5.

After completely shutting down the Eagles offense, the Cowboys are at the top of the NFC East and are in a good position to win a playoff spot approaching the half way point. They stay at 12.
