NFL Power Poll - Week 8

1. Green Bay Packers (7-0) The only team left undefeated, for how much longer?

2. Pittsburgh Steelers (6-2) A huge win over the Patriots makes the Steelers back as the class of the AFC.

3. San Francisco 49ers (6-1) The team just wins games!

4. New England Patriots (5-2) A loss on the road in a tough environment, but the team seems to be lacking something this season.

5. New Orleans Saints (5-3) Got beat by the Rams, only reason I can think of is that the Rams wore the throwback jerseys (they should just wear them every week).

6. Detroit Lions (6-2) Blasted the Tebow led Broncos, this might give them back some of the swagger after two losses in a row.

7. Baltimore Ravens (5-2) Whew, almost lost to Arizona at home...big concerns with the passing game and Flacco have emerged.

8. Atlanta Falcons (4-3) They were on a bye week but I still feel they are better than a lot of others in the NFC.

9. New York Jets (4-3) Joe McNight is getting my vote for return man pro bowler!

10. Buffalo Bills (5-2) Shut out the Redskins in Canada!

11. San Diego Chargers (4-3) Lost in OT to the surging Chiefs, why is Norv Turner still coaching this team?

12. New York Giants (5-2) Had a close win against the bad Dolphins.

13. Houston Texans (5-3) Texans remain perfect agaisnt the AFC South with win.

14. Kansas City Chiefs (4-3) I never counted this team out but thought the injures would too much to get back in this, but hey that why they play the games.

15. Oakland Raiders (4-3) Had a bye week to get Carson Palmer ready.

16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-3) Another team on a bye week.

17. Chicago Bears (4-3) Yet another team on a bye week!

18. Cincinnati Bengals (5-2) This team is doing surprisingly well with the young talent they have, and wow they get two more first round picks for trading Palmer.

19 Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) Ah the Eagles coming off a bye week never lose, is this the game that signals the turn around?

20. Dallas Cowboys (3-4) This team is so inconsistent.

21. Tennessee Titans (4-3) Chris Johnson is averaging 2.8 yards per carry but this team is still winning.

22. Cleveland Browns (3-4) They are down to their third string running back now.

23. Minnesota Vikings (2-6) The tough loss team finally is able to pull out a close win, Ponder looks much better then McNabb.

24. Carolina Panthers (2-6) Panthers could be a team to reckon with, but maybe starting next year.

25. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-6) MJD leads the AFC in rushing (and fumbles?)

26. Washington Redskins (3-4) Look, record with Beck is 0-2...I think we all know it is time for Grossman to step back in!

27. Seattle Seahawks (2-5) They were almost never beat at home last year, this year 1-2 at home.

28. St Louis Rams (1-6) Throwback jerseys lead to a huge win over the Saints.

29. Denver Broncos (2-5) Tebow gets credit for a win last week and should take the blame for loss this week, welcome to the NFL kid.

30. Arizona Cardinals (1-6) Had a good game agaisnt the Ravens on the road but ultimately the proved to be who we thought they were.

31. Miami Dolphins (0-7) They sure are playing like they would like a certain future QB.

32. Indianapolis Colts (0-8) They are sure playing like they miss a certain hall of fame QB.

Yes! A Dennis Green reference for the Arizona Cardinals. Well done!

I would say New England and SF are tied but then again SF does have a better defense....

Cowboys are definitely inconsistent... and I can't stop thinking how the Niners should have beaten them too.

Ravens offense has looked out of place lately...would be a nice Thanksgiving gift if it stayed that way on Turkey Day.

I'm not sure about putting the Bengals on 18th... they've already won more games than I expected them to win all season.

Raiders, Chiefs, Chargers....that is going to be a fun race to watch.

I can see the Packers going undefeated, though I think the Lions Thanksgiving game could be their first (only?) loss of the year. Their defense though may write a check their offense can't cash one of these days.

Jim Harbaugh rules. That's all.

The Chargers have since lost 2 more games since this, I don't know how Norv still has a job considering Marty Schottenheimer was fired after going 14-2.

The Bears and Bengals should probably move up on this list.

Glad to see you going pro-Rex Grossman!
