Danny's Power Rankings

Danny O'Neil's NFL Power Rankings | Week 8
Rank Team Comment
1 (1)Denver BroncosPeyton Manning isn't the first one to point to the scoreboard after a 14-point win. He is the only one, however, who's pointing in order to blame someone.
2 (2)Dallas CowboysThere's a stamp somewhere on Tony Romo's packaging that states, "Expires on Dec. 1, Every Single Freaking Year."
3 (4)Philadelphia EaglesThe working title for Chip Kelly's book on the NFL is "Aviary Evolution: From Duck to Eagle."
4 (11)Green Bay PackersRelax, just do it when Aaron Rodgers tells you to do it. Relax, you do it, and four straight wins will come.
5 (7)New England PatriotsNose tackle Vince Wilfork eats up space on the inside. Among other things.
6 (8)Arizona CardinalsThe Cardinals' long snapper is Mike Leach. Wonder if Jim Moore likes him as much as the Cougars' coach?
7 (12)Indianapolis ColtsWhat do you call an Andrew Luck necklace giveaway? Indy Pendants Day.
8 (9)Detroit LionsGolden Tate has 649 yards receiving while Seattle's seven wide receivers have combined for 834. Just saying.
9 (3)San Diego ChargersPhilip Rivers' success must have gotten lost in translation when facing Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio on Thursday night.
10 (13)Baltimore RavensThe Ravens' offensive formula is that the quarterback catches flak and the receivers catch Flacco.
11 (6)San Francisco 49ersThe Giants are San Francisco's only shot at a championship this since the 49ers now play in Santa Clara.
12 (5)Seattle SeahawksThe Seahawks actually requested that Percy Harvin not punch out on his final day of work for the team.
13 (21)Kansas City ChiefsKansas City's geographic diversity is shown with a kicker named Cairo Santos and linebacker Justin Houston.
14 (15)Buffalo BillsBuffalo and Kansas City are the only two teams in the league that have yet to allow a rushing touchdown.
15 (14)Carolina PanthersAmong the NFL's felines: Lions > Panthers > Bengals > house cats > Jaguars.
16 (10)Cincinnati BengalsCincinnati didn't allow more than 16 points in its first three games, but the Bengals haven't given up fewer than 27 in the last three.
17 (23)Miami DolphinsMight sound strange, but less Incognito has made the Dolphins more incognito this season.
18 (16)Chicago BearsNo mystery about the source of Chicago's turnover troubles: The Cutler did it.
19 (17)New York GiantsThe Giants are on the brink of another championship ... in a different sport.
20 (19)Pittsburgh SteelersPittsburgh's special teams amount to a wing and a prayer: Trust punter Brad Wing and pray for kicker Shaun Suisham.
21 (20)New Orleans SaintsThe Saints' four losses are by a combined 27 points, and Darren Sproles -- traded to Philly for a fifth-round pick -- has scored four touchdowns. Coincidence?
22 (18)Cleveland BrownsThe Browns beat Pittsburgh only to lose to Jacksonville, showing their commitment to finding new and ever more excruciating ways to torture their city. God hates Cleveland.
23 (29)St. Louis RamsPete Carroll is to Rams coach Jeff Fisher as Charlie Brown is to Lucy. No tricks next time, Fisher promises.
24 (22)Houston TexansThe Texans' quarterback may no longer be Schaub, but Ryan Fitzpatrick is certainly shabby in both a figurative and literal sense.
25 (26)Washington RedskinsColt McCoy could wear 45 and he still wouldn't work every time.
26 (25)New York JetsIf nothing else, the Jets' acquisition of Percy Harvin shows they haven't lost the will to fight.
27 (24)Atlanta FalconsThe Falcons are flying to England this weekend to play Detroit. No one would complain if they just stayed over there.
28 (28)Tennessee TitansNew starting quarterback Zach Mettenberger isn't riding in on a white horse, but he is no Whitehurst, which is a step in the right direction.
29 (27)Minnesota VikingsMinnesota fans predicted Seattle would be kicking itself over the Percy Harvin acquisition. Instead, Seahawks wound up absorbing punches.
30 (32)Jacksonville JaguarsThe Jags gave up 38 points per game in September compared to 13 so far in October.
31 (30)Tampa Bay BuccaneersQuarterback controversy: Does Mike Glennon look more like Beaker from the Muppets or Big Bird from Sesame Street?
32 (31)Oakland RaidersAs bad as the Raiders have been the past 12 years -- and they've been putrid -- they've never been 0-6.
