    MBA Power Rankings
    1. Seattle Seahawks 7-0

    This is Russell Wilson Country and this is Russell Wilson's Air but on a serious note the Seahawks are in a championship caliber form. Led by the Legion of Boom and the rest of the defense that has only given up a league low 89 points to opponents this season, it is going to be a tough task to knock these Seahawks from the undefeated ranks.

    2. Minnesota Vikings 5-1

    The Vikings at #2 are a scary good team whose offense is on fire right now. Teddy has thrown 18 touchdowns this season to only 3 interceptions and Adrian Peterson is being Adrian Peterson. The Vikings defense have created 15 turnovers so far this season and they are gonna need that type of production all season especially with our #3 team on the list, division rivals The Chicago Bears who host the Vikings in Week 8.

    Chicago Bears 5-1

    Da Bears are 5-1 so far and a lot of the credit has to go to first year running back Jeremy Langford. This kid is averaging 123.5 yard per game and already has 9 rushing touchdowns, if that doesn't scream Rookie of the Year front runner I don't know what does. Now Langford isn't the only new addition making plays ole Money Manziel has found his groove in the windy city throwing for over 1700 yards with 11 touchdowns. They have a huge matchup this week against the #2 team on the list and division rival Minnesota Vikings.

    4. Oakland Raiders 5-1

    The Raiders have put together a very good start to the 2015 season behind the arm of Derek Carr and his talented rookie wideout Amari Cooper. They are the best team in the AFC right now and are 2-0 in the AFC West after a big win over the Broncos. There only loss this year is to the Chicago Bears and it was only by a touchdown and there schedule the rest of the way is middle of the road in terms of toughness as they have a handful of games against some really good teams then the rest is meh at best.

    Baltimore Ravens 5-2

    Baltimore sits at #5 in the rankings and 5-2 on the season behind a very balanced offensive attack. Flacco has played decent so far but needs to cut down on the turnovers if the Ravens want to make a championship run. They are sporting a nice backfield duo of Justin Forsett and Antone Smith who have accounted for 788 yards and 9 touchdowns. Baltimore is 1-1 in there division with a loss to Cleveland but if I had to say right now this team is in the driver seat to take the AFC North.

    Washington Redskins 5-2

    The Redskins who to start the year were wondering if RG3 was there guy and now in week 8 we know that he is definitely there guy as he is having a sneaky good year accounting for 17 total touchdowns (14 Pass, 3 Rush) and to compliment RG3 in this Washington offense is Alfred Morris who is having a crazy good year rushing for 940 yards and 7 touchdowns already. The defense for Washington isn't anything to write home about but they are playing good football but it is definitely there offense who is carrying them right now. They have a 2 game lead in the NFC East and should walk away with this division.

    Buffalo Bills 5-2

    No one circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills and so far they have started the 2015 season pretty good minus a loss to there hated rival Patriots. I picked this Bills team to win it all and I believe there is a definite shot for this to happen since we are just short of halfway through the season. The Bills new addition Lesean McCoy is finding the endzone pretty easily this year already scoring 12 times so far but the surprise of this Bills team is the contributions of rookie running back Karlos Williams who has stepped up and been a nice compliment to McCoy. The Bills have a tough road ahead and if they hope to win the AFC East they will need to beat New England in week 11 to help there cause.

    Houston Texans 5-2

    At #8 we have the Houston Texans who sit at 5-2 and are leading the AFC South with 2nd year quarterback Tom Savage leading the way. Houston started the year 5-0 and would have been inside the top 3 in the rankings but back to back losses in the state of Florida to Miami and Jacksonville knocked them down to 8. I believe the Texans will bounce back from these losses and right the ship to win this division and possibly be the darkhorse in the AFC.

    New England Patriots 4-2

    Tom freakin Brady kid hes a sure fire Hall of Famer but hasn't been preforming to that level this season statistically but they are 4-2 and have beaten some quality opponents thus far. Gronk Smash has been full effect as he leads the team in receptions and yards but it is Lafell who has found the endzone more in this passing attack scoring 5 times. This Patriots team is no different from any Pats team they play really good offense and have a solid defense and we will see them in the playoffs.

    Denver Broncos 4-2

    Brock Osweiler stepped in for Peyton Manning who was injured in the Minnesota win and has split his 2 games he has started this season and will likely get 1 more start against a good Green Bay team before Mannings return. Denver has played amazing away from Mile High so far this year sporting a 3-1 record in away games. When Manning returns I expect this team to compete for the division but should definitely get a wild card spot.

    Green Bay Packers 4-2

    After two blowout losses to start the season the Cheeseheads have turned it around and reeled off 4 straight wins. Mr. Discount Doublecheck has not had a great season so far for his standards and has been seen on the sidelines numerous times throwing tablets(as seen below). The Packers did however replace BJ Raji with Jonathan Hankins from the Giants to sure up there defensive line but it cost them Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. The bad news for Green Bay fans is that two of the best teams in the NFC are in there division and they will need to pull off some upsets to get into the post season.

    Arizona Cardinals 4-3

    Carson Palmer is killing it but there record doesn't reflect that until you dive deeper into it and see that 2 of there 3 losses have come to the Minnesota Vikings and the Baltimore Ravens both teams rank in the top 5 of these rankings. Seattle may have a 3 game lead over Arizona but again I would not count them out of the playoffs.

    13. Atlanta Falcons 4-3

    The Falcons lead the NFC South heading into week 8 but with 5 division games left and there are some question marks surrounding this team as they are on a roller coaster right now. One week there good the next they couldn't hit water if they fell out of a boat. If they can level out and play solid football they should win the division but there division rivals are right in the rear view.

    Cleveland Browns 4-3

    The Dog Pound has had something to cheer about this season as there Browns have a winning record and are 2nd in the AFC North only trailing the Ravens by 1 game. Unfortunately there owner has had to step away from the team for now and is contemplating selling the organization all together but only time will tell.

    Indianapolis Colts 4-3

    Andre Luck and the Colts sit at 4-3 second in there division behind the Houston Texans who they have already dropped a game to this season. However there is some good news for Indy as Houston has dropped two straight games and maybe having some issues offensively but the bad news for Indy is there schedule the rest of the season is full of solid opponents. So they will need a little Luck to get to the post season.

    16. Carolina Panthers 3-3

    Keep Pounding Carolina, currently second in the South behind Atlanta but will get to play them twice in a 3 week span starting week 14. The Panthers are my real life favorite team so this could be a book lol but ill keep it short. Cam Newton has had a slow start to his year and there record reflects that but once he gets it going watch out because this team is built for a deep post season run.

    Dallas Cowboys 3-3

    America's team has stumbled out of the gate but have managed a .500 record to this point. For the Cowboys to turn things around it starts where it always does with Dallas and thats Tony Romo. If he can get hot over the next few weeks they will be contending with Washington for the East.

    Miami Dolphins 3-3

    Tannehill and the Dolphins currently behind New England and Buffalo in the AFC East are gonna need some help if they are looking to nab a wild card spot or there division because the Pats and Bills are very strong teams with very solid owners. A bright spot on this team has to be wide out Kenny Stills who came over from New Orleans and is having an amazing season so far he has 25 Catches for 689 yards and 8 touchdowns. If they can get production like this from others this team could get hot and make a run down the stretch.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-3

    Jameis Winston's rookie campaign has started out very good as he has thrown for 1800 yards with 16 touchdowns but he also has 15 interceptions to go along with that but he has the Bucs in contention for the NFC South crown and thats all you can ask for. If he cuts down on the turnovers and Doug Martin continues to produce good numbers on the ground they should hang around all year.

    Tennessee Titans 3-3

    Just like Winston Marcus Mariota has started his NFL career with some success throwing for 1500 yards with 13 touchdowns but again turnovers are killing these rookie quarterbacks as Mariota has thrown 14 interceptions. Mariota has definitely found himself a redzone target in rookie wide out Dorial Green-Beckham who has 12 catches on the year and 5 touchdowns. The Titans find themselves only 2 games behind Houston in the South so if Mariota can limit the turnovers and hope the Titans find a run game they could find themselves in a playoff race.

    Pittsburgh Steelers 3-4

    Our Commissioner and leader of MBA with his beloved Steelers are 3-4 which has come to a shock for some who have seen him in HaW. The Steelers problem so far is they haven't been able to beat the teams they are suppose to beat, two of there losses this season include the 1-5 Rams and 1-6 Chiefs which the Steelers gave them there only wins. Pittsburgh could easily be 5-2 but there is enough time to turn it around and chase down Baltimore for the division.

    San Diego Chargers 3-4

    The Chargers first 7 games have been pretty wild as they started 2-0 then got blown out by Minnesota then bounced back against Cleveland but then the wheels fell off and they have started and are currently in a 3 game skid losing to Pittsburgh, Green Bay, and Oakland. There next two games are very very tough as they travel to Baltimore then host Chicago. San Diego could be staring 3-6 heading into there bye week.

    New Orleans Saints 3-4

    The New Orleans Saints find themselves last in the South but they are only one game out of first making the NFC South wide open in terms of who will win this division. The Saints however are 1-2 but still have a game against every NFC South team so there is still hope in The Big Easy.

    24. Jacksonville Jaguars 2-5

    Bortles and the Jags haven't started this season liked they had hoped they would but after a solid win against Houston which it looked like the team had started to turn it around they get blown out by Buffalo.

    New York Giants 2-5

    Yours truly's team lol I took over and they were 1-3..traded for Clinton-Dix who had a stellar first game against the Eagles who we beat then sim lossed to the Cowboys. Not saying this season is a complete wash as we are trying to build for the future....most likely missing the playoffs and will have a top 10 pick.

    Philadelphia Eagles 2-5

    The Eagles had a good start at 2-1 but are on a 4 game losing streak which includes a massacre by the Redskins and three one score losses in a row.They have the talent to turn it around and there next few games are very winnable so I look for the Eagles to start the climb back up the standings.

    New York Jets 1-5

    They just recently came under new ownership and the new owner is no slouch when it comes to turning around a team so I don't see the Jets being this low for long. On a side note there only win is against the Patriots.

    St. Louis Rams 1-5

    They have the best defensive line in the league but that can only carry you so far. The Rams offense has to start scoring more to help there defense out if they hope to salvage this season. They have been in almost every game except for two losses against Washington and Cleveland.

    Cincinnati Bengals 1-5

    With the talent this team has on both side of the ball it is very shocking that there only win is against a 1-6 Chiefs team. This team needs to turn it around right now if they want anything to do with winning this division or even sniffing the playoffs. The good news is they have only played one division game and will have 5 chances at gaining against division rivals which they need to win all 5.

    San Francisco 49ers 1-6

    The 49ers are in rebuild mode after losing a ton of players this past offseason. They still have some good pieces to build around so its not a total rebuild but this isn't the same 49ers teams from the past couple seasons.

    Kansas City Chiefs 1-6

    Kansas City recently won there first game of the season against a good Steelers team and when you look back at there schedule it hasn't been an easy one and the bad news is after there next game against Detroit it doesn't get any easier. Atleast they won't go 0-16.

    Detroit Lions 0-7

    The Detroit Lions have just gone under new ownership and he has inherited the worst team record wise in the league. I don't see them going 0-16 but in a division where you have two teams right now with one loss you may think about trying to win the race for 1st pick since playoffs are out of the question at this point.
