Rankings will change each week due to personnel changes, injuries and performance on the field, and a team’s ranking in any given week has no impact on where they might rank in weeks to come. Rankings will fluctuate a great deal more the first few weeks of the season as teams seek their levels and schedules balance out. These are PFW’s Power Rankings following Week 8 as teams head into the ninth weekend of regular season games. Rank/Team/Record/The Skinny 1. Eagles: 7-1 Most impressive team in league right now 2.
