Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

Posted: October 24, 2016 in NFL

As mentioned last week, playoff and super bowl probabilities are if every team played exactly the same the rest of season and does not account for volatility in team performance so when examining the probabilities for playoffs understand that everything is slightly closer to 50% and for the Super Bowl it is more evenly spread among teams. Vikings reclaim the #1 spot after the Falcons lose at home to the Chargers, who move up four spots to tenth overall. Dolphins, Jets and Colts all moved more than four spots in the right direction after winning this week. Rams, Titans, Texans and Seahawks all dropped more than four spots in the rankings. Browns winless odds: 10.5%
