Dr. J's Week 8 NFL Rankings

To all of those in San Diego like I am who have watched the fires rage out of control, my heart goes out to all those who have lost homes, family members, loved ones, and their memories. God be with you...

1) Kansas City Chiefs (8-0)
Last Week: 1st, Defeated Buffalo 38-5
Chiefs look like they've got everything clicking.

2) Indianapolis Colts (6-1)
Last Week: 3rd, Defeated Houston 30-21
Colts take Texans a little too lightly before waking up.

3) Minnesota Vikings (6-1)
Last Week: 2nd, Lost to NY Giants 29-17
Daunte Culpepper threw his 1st interception of the season, but at the worst possible time.

4) Tennessee Titans (5-2)
Last Week: 4th, Defeated Jacksonville 30-17
Steve McNair is the best QB in the NFL right now. Period.

5) Carolina Panthers (6-1)
Last Week: 5th, Defeated New Orleans 23-20 in OT
Carolina is 3-0 in OT games this year, all on the road.

6) New England Patriots (6-2)
Last Week: 7th, Defeated Cleveland 9-3
Bill Belichick should be coach of the year.

7) St. Louis Rams (5-2)
Last Week: 9th, Defeated Pittsburgh 33-21
Who the heck is Arlen Harris?

8) Miami Dolphins (5-2)
Last Week: 11th, Defeated San Diego 26-10
I seriously doubt Jay Fiedler gets his job back.

9) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-3)
Last Week: 12th, Defeated Dallas 16-0
Team continues it's win one, lose one pattern this season.

10) Seattle Seahawks (5-2)
Last Week: 6th, Lost to Cincinnati 27-24
Seahawks can't handle swarming Bengals defense.

11) Dallas Cowboys (5-2)
Last Week: 8th, Lost to Tampa Bay 16-0
Quincy Carter can't solve the Bucs Cover 2.

12) Denver Broncos (5-3)
Last Week: 10th, Lost to Baltimore
Good news is that John Mobley's x-rays were negative, but he does have a bruised spinal cord.

13) Green Bay Packers (3-4)
Last Week: 13th, Bye Week
Packers can't get into these basketball game scores if they want the playoffs.

14) Philadelphia Eagles (4-3)

Eagles run the ball for an impressive 194 yards.

15) Cincinnati Bengals (3-4)
Last Week: 17th, Defeated Seattle 27-24
Corey Dillon, I believe that is what is known as karma...

Last Week: 18th, Defeated Denver
Jamal Lewis has 977 yards through seven games.

17) Buffalo Bills (4-4)
Last Week: 14th, Lost to Kansas City 38-5
Bills need better protection from the offensive line if they are going to have immobile Drew Bledsoe in the pocket.

18) New York Giants (3-4)
Last Week: 25th, Defeated Minnesota 29-17
When Kerry Collins is on, he's dangerous...

Owen Pochman, we hardly knew you...

20) Washington Redskins (3-4)
Last Week: 19th, Bye Week
Get the arch rival Cowboys next.

21) New Orleans Saints (3-5)
Last Week: 21st, Lost to Carolina 23-20 in OT
A missed block, a fumble, and another gut wrenching loss.

22) Cleveland Browns (3-5)
Last Week: 20th, Lost to New England 9-3
There have been two games this season where there were no TD's scored and the Browns have lost both of them.

23) Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5)
Last Week: 22nd, Lost to St. Louis 33-21
Steelers offense is tumbling and defense is bumbling.

Last Week: 23rd, Lost to Philadelphia 24-17
Not even Chad Pennington can make a difference this time.

25) Houston Texans (2-5)
Last Week: 24th, Lost to Indianapolis 30-21
A bad sight for Texans fans, David Carr on crutches.

26) Oakland Raiders (2-5)
Last Week: 26th, Bye
Raiders get a reprieve against the Lions on Sunday, right?

I like him a lot, but Matt Millen has got to go...

32) Atlanta Falcons (1-6)

Shake up begins in Atlanta. Ray Buchanan looks to be benched.
