  • Sean Koerner compares how all 32 teams are trending in his NFL Power Ratings as we enter Week 8.

My NFL Power Ratings are a way to rank all 32 teams, but their intention is to be predictive.

I use them to project odds for every game throughout the season, which you can read more about here, so maintaining these ratings on a weekly basis is critical to finding the best betting edges.

We’re now seven weeks in and the league has shifted quite a bit since Week 1, so let’s take a look at how every team has moved in my power ratings since. All 32 teams are ranked from the best to worst according to my Week 8 ratings and feature how they’ve trended up or down (and by how much) since the season kicked off.

Before we dig into the results, let’s make one important disclaimer: The Kansas City Chiefs’ rating took a big hit as a result of Patrick Mahomes’ injury, but it’s temporary — he’s back at practice less than a week later. So while the Chiefs’ rating has dropped 8.5 points, it’s not predictive of what we should expect from Kansas City once he returns, so the Chiefs will rise again soon.
