Broncos rise one spot in NFL power rankings entering Week 8

·1 min read

After losing 17-14 to the Cleveland Browns last week, the Denver Broncos are now ranked No. 20 in Nate Davis’ latest NFL power rankings for USA TODAY Sports. That’s actually up one spot from their No. 21 ranking last week.

Here is Davis’ commentary with the Broncos’ ranking this week:

Inexplicable that this team ran 14 times in Week 7 loss at Cleveland. If any offense should be 4.5 yards and a cloud of dust, it might be this one.

Elsewhere in the AFC West, the Los Angeles Chargers are ranked No. 10, the Las Vegas Raiders are ranked No. 11 and the Kansas City Chiefs are ranked No. 13. Davis considers Denver the worst team in the division.

The Washington Football Team, who Denver will host in Week 8, are ranked No. 24. Washington is coming off a 24-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

The undefeated Arizona Cardinals are ranked No. 1 and the Houston Texans are ranked No. 32. To view the complete NFL power rankings entering Week 8, visit
