NFL Power Rankings, Week 8: 49ers holding steady

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

We break down Week 8 NFL power rankings, and where the 49ers are situated.

We're back with our weekly look at NFL Power Rankings. Wes will put together his own rankings, but for now, we've got a look at five sets of power rankings around the league.

The 49ers bounced back from a tough Week 6 loss to the Giants with an ugly but needed Week 7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. The win has moved them up a spot or two in some rankings, although there remains some debate about where they should sit compared to the Packers.

There has to be some value for the 49ers Week 1 win, but of course the Packers get plenty of credit for their road domination of the Houston Texans two weeks ago. They handled the Rams this past week, but I don't think the score was entirely indicative of the Packers performance. The Packers have bounced back from a poor start and now sit at 4-3. They are a game and a half back of the first place Bears and hold a home win over them as well. The Packers will be in the mix the rest of the way, but are they "better" than the 49ers? I think the breakdown of the power rankings shows this is up for debate.
