2014 NFL POWER RANKINGS WEEK 9: Broncos Maintain top spot

NFLTeamsA power ranking of all 32 NFL teams after week eight play.

The Twist: Each week the 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. Reflecting the top 12 teams most likely to make the playoffs. One NFC team and one AFC team occupy the top two spots to reflect who may end up in the super bowl. At least one team from each division is represented in the top 12.

The Top 12 Teams:

The Bengals have now gone 2-0 against their main division rival the Ravens which puts the Bengals back into the top 12. Consequently the Ravens fall to number 13 and are looking at fighting their way through the wildcard pool.  Clearly the NFC South is the weakest division in the NFL as all teams are below .500 after week 8. The Panthers hold on to the number 12 spot as the team that would most likely to back their way into the playoffs by representing the South. An important game with the Saints on Thursday night will determine who takes the lead in the worst division.
