NFL Power Rankings, Week 8: Buccaneers hit top three; Cowboys fall continues –

Previous rank: No. 23

Beware of Post-54 Carson Wentz. If you don’t destroy the monster in the first 53 minutes of game time, he will kill your season and haunt your dreams. Just ask the Giants, who let Philadelphia hang on the periphery on Thursday night, to disastrous results. Wentz’s stat line over the final two drives: 5-for-7, 121 yards, two touchdowns, 153.3 passer rating. The first of those scoring drives covered 78 yards on four plays; the second, 71 yards on six. Given the Cowboys’ retreat into laughingstock status, the Eagles have a wide-open path to an NFC East title and a home playoff game. Just need to find a way to win eight games … or seven … OK, maybe six. Yeah, probably five.
