Week 8 NFL Power Rankings: 1-5

At 4-0, the Panthers were the easy choice of all undefeated teams to be picked as “pretenders” but a come from behind win at Seattle followed by a convincing win over the Eagles means they’re for real.. 6-0. Last Week: 5. Carolina Panthers . 5. player. 87

45. The Broncos haven’t lost yet but there is a sense they still need to validate themselves. They have a big chance this week against the Packers.. 6-0. Last Week: 4. Denver Broncos . 4. player

56. The 6-0 Bengals come out of their bye week with a road game at the Steelers on the other side, probably with Roethlisberger returning to the lineup.. 6-0. Last Week: 3. Cincinnati Bengals . 3. player

Green Bay Packers . 2. player. 49. If the Packers get through the next two weeks unscathed (at Denver, at Carolina), they could be looking to make a post-Christmas push for an undefeated regular season.. 6-0. Last Week: 2

47. The Patriots started the season at the top of the power rankings and haven’t left that perch. Now they are jedi mind-tricking opponents into running the worst plays in NFL history. Watch out NFL!. 6-0. Last Week: 1. New England Patriots . 1. player
