Giant Move in Power Rankings

Their lead is quickly dwindling, but the San Diego Chargers curiously retain top spot in the NFL power rankings for Week 8.

The Chargers' No. 1 ranked offense still keeps them atop the rankings, but after dropping three in a row both SU and ATS this could be San Diego's last week on top. Need to get the formula adjusted to reflect stupidity and special teams incompetence.

Most of the list makes statistical sense and points to some edges in power. That can point to some point spread edges to help bettors win.

1. San Diego (1) – The Chargers evidently need to be reminded that the player isn't down   until they're touched by a defender.

2. NY Giants (2) –  Behind their ever-improving offense and hard-nosed defense the Giants have won four straight while going 3-1 ATS.

3. NY Jets (4)  - With a 5-1 ATS record the Jets haven't just been good to New York fans this season.

4. Pittsburgh (6) – Ben Roethlisberger has nearly passed for more yards in two games (559) than the Steelers had total in their first four games of the season (606).

5. Philadelphia (7) – After this week's bye the Eagles will hand the starting QB duties back to Michael Vick. So is Kevin Kolb the future in Philly or not?

6. Atlanta (5) – Roddy White went off in Week 7 with an amazing 11 catches for 201 yards and two touchdowns.

7. Indianapolis (10) – The Colts return from their bye week with a Monday night showdown against Houston.

8. New Orleans (9) – The Saints own the worst ATS record in the NFL at 1-6.

9. Baltimore (8) –  Ed Reed returns to the tune of two interceptions, but the Ravens still failed to cover against the awful Bills.

10. Kansas City (13) – The Chiefs are another bright spot for bettors this season with a 5-1 record ATS.

11. Dallas (3) – The Cowboys' playoff chances are as broken as Tony Romo's clavicle.

12. Miami (12) –  The Dolphins are 3-0 SU and ATS on the road this season as they head to Cincinnati this weekend.  

13. Cincinnati (11) – After three straight losses both SU and ATS things are looking bleak in Cincinnati right now.

14. Oakland (24) – The Raiders scored 59 points last week? But they only scored 60 points total in their previous three games combined.

15. Tennessee (14) – A trip to San Diego to play the bungling and beat up Chargers doesn't look too bad right now.

16. Minnesota (16) – The Vikings continue to tank on the road where they've lost seven straight. Have fun in New England this week, Brett.

17. Green Bay (15) –  A win and a cover versus the Vikings last week snapped the Packers' four-game ATS losing streak.

18. New England (19) –  Without Randy Moss on the other side Wes Welker has caught 11 passes for 78 yards and no touchdowns in his last two games.

19. St. Louis (21) –  The Rams' chances of rebounding this week look pretty good at home against the toothless Panthers.

20. Tampa Bay (25) –  With three of their next four games against Arizona, San Francisco, and Carolina (combined 5-14) a playoff spot isn't a pipe dream in Tampa Bay right now.

21. Houston (20) –  Can the Texans post another upset of the Colts this week? They bombed Indy 34-24 as 1.5-point home dogs in Week 1.

22. Chicago (18) – Jay Cutler has been sacked 10 times and thrown four picks to only one touchdown in his last two games.

23. Detroit  (22) – Fresh off their bye the Lions need Matt Stafford back with Shaun Hill banged up.

24. Seattle (28) – The Seahawks lead the NFC West and they're 4-2 ATS. That's how bad the NFC West is right now.

25. Denver (17) – The Broncos' 29 pass attempts last week looks pretty low for them. But it isn't really, when you consider they ran the ball only 17 times.

26. Washington (26) –  The Redskins are filling bettors' pockets this season with a 5-1-1 ATS record, which includes a 5-0-1 ATS mark as the underdog.

27. San Francisco (23) – The 49ers couldn't even beat the winless Panthers last week and now Alex Smith is out with a separated shoulder as they head to London.

28. Cleveland (27) –  Not only was the Browns' upset win over the Saints this week shocking, but it came as a 12.5-point underdog.

29. Buffalo (31) –  The Bills are the only team in the league without a win, but they're 2-4 ATS.

30. Carolina (30) –  The Panthers may have a win, but they still own the worst scoring offense in the NFL.

31.Jacksonville (29) – The Jaguars hit the road this week where they are 2-7 both SU and ATS in their last nine games.

32. Arizona (32) –  Fresh off their bye Max Hall and the Cards look to build on their Week 5 upset win over the Saints.
