2023 Power Rankings - Week 8

Rank (LW) Logo Team Record Rating Comment
1 (1) FW 5-2 115.85 The Pistons had their 5 game winning streak snapped after Denver came from behind on MNF. Fort Wayne could not capitalize off of Travis Kelce's 40 point evening where T. Swift was present for yet another game. In case you hadn't notice, the Pistons are trying to replicate the 2004 Chicago Trim who took a new kicker every week.
2 (3) SH 5-2 101.40 The champs found their footing again coming off a season low to be the weekly top score. The wideouts closed out the week in impressive fashion. Tyreek Hill had an 11 catch day and scored a TD on SNF. Jordan Addison had his career best game with a 36 point night on MNF. The Hooligans now own the longest win streak - 4 games.
3 (2) LAB 6-1 98.02 The Bombers took over the top spot in the standings as they reached win #6. It wasn't a pretty looking win as they barely scored over 100 points. It was a 1-2 punch with A.J. Brown and Mark Andrews lighting up the scoreboard for 56 points. The rest of the team however disappointed with Stafford the only other player to have more than 10 points.
4 (4) CTR 4-3 92.84 The Triumph hit the 130 point mark for the 4th time this season. They had to sweat this one out a bit and didn't take the lead until McCaffrey found the endzone late in the 2nd quarter. He has scored a TD in every game this year and has a streak of 16 straight going back to last year. It was a good bounce back game as he exited the week before with a rib injury.
5 (8) ANA 3-4 83.21 The Commando Cats are officially on a winning streak. After starting off the season 0-4, they have fired off 3 straight wins. This was one of those Patrick Mahomes weeks where he puts up gaudy numbers and can single handily win a week. He went off for 55 points and it was good enough to win Player of the Week. He's won every year dating back to 2018.
6 (9) DEN 4-3 81.44 The Diamonds had an impressive come from behind victory to knock off the Pistons. Down 45 points with Cousins and Kittle to go, the deck was stacked against them. Captain Kirk had an amazing game without Jefferson and had a 38 point night. Kittle contributed 12 points to put Denver over the top to get the 5 point win.
7 (7) SD 3-4 79.60 San Diego did just enough to take down Tampa Bay, but they sit as the #9 seed halfway through the regular season. The Surge had 3 guys on carryovers so that's why it felt like they hardly scored. Jalen Hurts led the way with 29 points for the second consecutive week. The tight end position has been a weakness on this team because they have yet to get a double digit performance.
8 (5) ND 2-5 77.96 The Nimrods look like a shell of themselves. For the second time in 3 weeks, they failed to break 100 points. The magic is disappearing from North Dakota. They are at risk of ending their 8 year run of making the playoffs. Normally they are great at streaming kickers and defenses but this week didn't pan out with Maher and the Raiders D combining for 2 points.
9 (6) SF 4-3 75.90 The Rattlesnakes had a pretty awful week and could only muster 82 points. The highest point total for any starter was 18 points by James Cook. Cooper Kupp was shutdown and had a measily 6 point day which included a 2 point conversion. It was also the first time where Brock Purdy had more INT's than TD's in his young NFL career.
10 (10) TB 4-3 69.87 The coldest team in the league is the Blizzard. It seems like an ages ago that Tampa Bay was competitve. During their 3 game losing streak, the Blizzard have averaged 80 points per game. With Jefferson and Fields out, their subs scored 11 and 7 points respectively. To make matters worse, Chris Olave was arrested for reckless operation.
11 (11) ATL 1-6 67.47 The Jesters are still looking for their 2nd win of the season. It was a big head scratcher what happened to Bijan Robinson this week. He would finish with one carry for 3 yards. He wasn't listed on the injury report but turns out he was suffering from headaches. Another head scratcher stat was that the Browns D gave up 38 points but forced 4 TO's and scored a TD for 18 points.
12 (12) DET 1-6 61.95 The Devils were on the wrong side of a whooping and suffered a 50 point beat down. For the fourth time this seaon, Detroit could not hit the triple digit mark. The Devils went with the wrong defense picking Detroit over Batimore, which also ended in a beat down. But, Jahmyr Gibbs returned from injury and hauled in 9 balls and accounted for the only Lions TD.
