Power Rankings Week 8

Don't look now, but a couple teams are rising from the ashes. San Diego is all-of-a-sudden ranked fifth after starting out the year in serious trouble. New Orleans had the largest single week jump in team strength.

Two NFC West teams now occupy the bottom two spots in SF and STL. I'm not sure I see that changing anytime soon.

Clearly, the best two teams square off in Indy this week, but look at the difference in team strength. Indy might be #2, but they are trailing by 8pts in team strength. That would be like Dallas facing the Hawks or Tampa in that it could be a good game, but one team is clearly better than the other.

Cleveland is a bigger challenge than I expected early in the year. This would be a significant win on the road, but I'm not feeling confident about our ability to score enough to pull this out.
