NFL Power Rankings Week 8: AFC Sweet—And Not So Sweet—16

Below are some Week 8 NFL power rankings for the 2013-14 NFL season. Where do the Tennessee Titans rank among all 16 AFC teams? They’re not as low as one may think. Whichever “tweener” team can get hot will have a very good chance at securing one of the AFC’s wild-card berths.

Obvious Top 5
01 Kansas City Chiefs 7-0
02 Indianapolis Colts 5-2
03 Denver Broncos 6-1
04 Cincinnati Bengals 5-2
05 New England Patriots 5-2

That’s MY No. 6 Seed!
06 San Diego Chargers 4-3
07 Tennessee Titans 3-4
08 Pittsburgh Steelers 2-4
09 New York Jets 4-3
10 Baltimore Ravens 3-4
11 Buffalo Bills 3-4
12 Cleveland Browns 3-4
13 Miami Dolphins 3-3
14 Oakland Raiders 2-4

15 Houston Texans 2-5

16 Jacksonville Jaguars 0-7


  • Titans already defeated No. 6, No. 8 and No. 9. They’re not in a bad position for that second wild card.
  • Houston Texans have the AFC’s second-worst record…and the Titans lost to them.
  • Let’s stop overrating the Broncos. They’re very similar to the 2011 Green Bay Packers: high-scoring offense that can’t stop anybody because of a pitiful pass-rush. They’ll flame out before February.
  • Every AFC team has a glaring weakness. Can Andy Dalton carry the Bengals deep into January? Do the Chiefs have enough offense? Will Tom Brady develop enough chemistry with his wide receivers? Colts are inconsistent and lost Reggie Wayne for the season. Broncos have no defense.
