Our top-9 from last Thursday took care of business in predictable fashion during Week 8, so we have no movement to report prior to slot No. 10, where the Detroit Lions rise following the team’s 31-30 comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys.

The numbers in brackets indicate each team’s Power Ranking, which is based on a scale of 1-100. These numbers can be used as a baseline to determine the point spread between any two teams on the list. Keep in mind that these numbers do not account for home field advantage, situational analysis (extra rest, back-to-back road games, divisional rivalries, etc), injuries, weather or public perception. They are merely to be used as a baseline for your initial analysis.
