SLR’s Week 8 NFL Power Rankings: 11-15

15. player. 87. Sure, the Panthers miss Steve Smith, but the defense has taken a major step back this season.. 3-3-1. Last Week: 12. Carolina Panthers

Last Week: 20. Kansas City Chiefs. 14. player. 124. It hasn’t been the start the Chiefs wanted, but a road win over the Chargers is a nice boost and at 3-3, they’re right there to compete for a Wild Card.. 3-3

The best thing to be said for the 49ers right now might be that the Seahawks are underwhelming as well.. 4-3. Last Week: 11. San Francisco 49ers. 13. player. 42

Last Week: 9. Cincinnati Bengals. 12. player. 56. Getting shutout in Indy is not the way to follow up a tie that felt like a loss. Bengals trending downward.. 3-2-1

Seattle Seahawks. 11. player. 36. The Seahawks have now lost two straight; the first time they’ve done that since October 2012.. 3-3. Last Week: 6
