The Reality Check Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

October 24, 2012 | Glenn Clark

16. Arizona Cardinals (13)

Accidentally still in the top half of the NFL.

15. Washington Redskins (12)

We all know RGIII is the real deal. We just don’t know if he’s going to have any healthy players to throw the ball to.

14. Dallas Cowboys (19)

Sean Lee injury a factor for a team already stuck in mediocrity.

13. Seattle Seahawks (11)

Need more from Russell Wilson.

12. Philadelphia Eagles (14)

On Sundays they play football. All other days they play “turmoil.”

11. Pittsburgh Steelers (15)

Remember when the Ravens were going to run and hide from them?

10. Minnesota Vikings (10)

Blah blah blah Samantha Steele.

9. Denver Broncos (9)

Peyton Manning facing Drew Brees Sunday? This will be neat. I wonder if they’ve ever faced each other before.

8. Baltimore Ravens (3)

Is there ANY humor to be had in referring to Ray Rice as “The Burrito” moving forward?

7. Chicago Bears (8)

And we all got to find out that Jason Campbell is still alive!

6. New England Patriots (7)

It seems like they shouldn’t have needed such dramatics.

5. San Francisco 49ers (6)

It wasn’t pretty…it was the 49ers.

4. Green Bay Packers (5)

More Randall Cobb, please. Love, happy Randall Cobb owner.

3. New York Giants (4)

2. Houston Texans (2)

1. Atlanta Falcons (1)

Their number of losses equals the number of other ‘N Sync members who attended Justin Timberlake’s wedding. Don’t ask me how I know that.
