Houston Texans: Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#2)

Last week: 2 (+0)

Record: 6-1

I thought about moving Houston back up into the #1 spot, but let’s see how good the Ravens actually are first. If they’re as bad as the Texans made them look, then that’s not as impressive of a win and the Texans’ struggles with the only good NFC team they’ve faced is troubling. The NFC is by far the better conference and while Houston looks to be by far the best team in the AFC, they’ll have to beat an NFC team to win the Super Bowl.
