NFL Power Rankings Week 8: Shaken Up at the Top
Week 8 in the 2014 NFL season is in the books. The NFL lost the last undefeated team weeks ago, and in what is being called The Passing Sunday, the league lost all but two one-loss teams.
Will those two teams take the top two spots?
Football Nation would like to remind readers that power rankings are only an opinion, based on just one opinion, but they do take into account strength of schedule, point differential and other human elements rather than just record.
The Washington Redskins had a very impressive win on the road against their division opponent, the Dallas Cowboys. Washington, along with Cincinnati, moved up the furtherest with four spots while Dallas dropped five spots. The uncertainy of Tony Romo's health did not help the Cowboys' ranking.
Remember, Power Rankings are supposed to reveal some insight, not just list the teams from best to worst record.
Lastly, don't forget that the rankings are serious, but the comments are not. Let's be real, after reading lots and lots of serious football articles breaking down every little detail, fans could use a good laugh.
Anyway, without further ado, check out where each team ranks after Week 8 of the 2014 season.
