Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

By: Ryan Kirouac

Another week is in the books for the 2019 NFL season.

With Patrick Mahomes injured during the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night game, the AFC has been blown wide open (except for the one seed, that belongs to the Patriots). Teams like the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens are looking to take that playoff bye week away from the Chiefs, and other teams are hanging in there, fighting for a Wild Card berth.

Over in the NFC, it is still very much anyone’s game.

The San Francisco 49ers remain undefeated due to spectacular defensive efforts, but the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers are hot on their tail. A week from now, we’ll have eclipsed the halfway mark of the season and teams will start to drop out of playoff contention for good.

This week was a relatively predictable week, with very few upsets across the board. With that being said, the top ten this week still received a bit of a shake-up, so let’s get right into it.
