WEEK#    
Posted November 05, 2013 09:58 AM EST

At the midway point, we're doing a little remodeling, and guess what? There's a new No. 1 team. Sorry, Chiefs, being 9-0 just isn't enough.

Watch Brian Billick explain his Week 8 rankings further here.

RK Team RECORD CHANGE HIGH/LOW COMMENTS
1

8-0 - 1/19
This defense hasn't given up more than 17 points yet this season and have a league-high 35 sacks on the year. Absolutely dominant.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
2

7-1 - 1/4
The Seahawks have now won 11 of their last 12 regular season games and are 6-1 to start a season for the first time in franchise history…but most importantly, this team just looks like they are having a lot of fun.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
3

7-1 - 1/5
Peyton Manning was sacked four times on Sunday night, the most he's been sacked in a game since 2007.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
4

5-2 - 4/15
The Colts are young and explosive, but with youth comes inconsistency and before I put them above the Broncos, I want to see them put together back-to-back games.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
5

6-1 - 2/16
The Saints were on a bye this week and will now host three of their next four games in New Orleans.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
6

6-2 - 1/13
Here comes the 49ers…after starting 1-2, they have now won four in a row and are scoring 33 points per game while only giving up 12.8 during their win streak.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

5-2 - 6/24
No James Jones or Randall Cobb. No problem. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' offense converted a season-best 53.8% of their third downs and scored their second most points of the season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
8

6-2 - 5/13
In the last two games, Andy Dalton has thrown for 702 yards and six touchdowns…both on the road. That’s pretty good.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
9

6-2 - 3/9
The rules are the rules…no matter if it's the first quarter, the last quarter or overtime. Whether you agree with the rule or not, you can hardly fault the official for throwing the flag on what was an obvious rules infraction.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
10

4-4 - 10/18
The Cowboys have won back-to-back games for the first time this season and now sit atop the NFC East and are a perfect 3-0 against divisional opponents.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

4-3 - 11/26
Do you think Philip Rivers has already cleared the space on his mantle for the Comeback Player of the Year trophy?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

5-3 - 6/20
Calvin Johnson now has more receiving touchdowns after seven games this season than he did all of last year.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

4-3 - 4/20
Not only did the Bears lose the game on Sunday, but they also lost Jay Cutler for at least four weeks and Lance Briggs for the next six weeks. Not sure the Bears can keep pace with the Packers or Lions in the division at this point.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

4-4 - 12/30
The Jets snapped a six game losing streak against the Patriots and have yet to have back-to-back losses on the season. I don’t think the Jets are a playoff team, but they will play spoiler at some point in the second half of the season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

3-4 - 14/26
This team flashes, but just can't seem to put it all together.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

3-5 - 16/27
Thaddeus Lewis earned his first win as a starter in the NFL, but the game ball should go to the defense who forced three turnovers, one of which was returned for a touchdown.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

3-4 - 5/25
The Ravens are the first defending champs to have a losing record after seven games in the following season since the 2006 Steelers.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

3-4 - 10/25
The Dolphins had three turnovers and converted on just three third downs…that’s almost always going to end in a loss.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

2-5 - 4/32
Case Keenum held his own in a very tough setting on Sunday…I think he earned the right to compete for the starting job even with a healthy Matt Schaub.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
20

2-5 - 13/30
In the win over the Ravens on Sunday, the Steelers snapped an 11-game streak of failing to reach 100 yards rushing. That just sounds strange for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

3-5 - 9/23
Do you think the Eagles will have another Vick/Foles joint press conference to now name Vick as the starter? At least we can rule out Matt Barkley as a viable option as this stage in his career.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

4-3 - 2/28
There are some very talented young interior defensive lineman in this league and one of them is named Kawann Short.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

2-5 - 4/31
The Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak, but only had 18 rushing yards in the process. Reports suggest that Steven Jackson could be back this week and he could provide this offense the spark it needs.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

2-5 - 13/31
RG3 seems to be hitting his stride…literally, but this defense is awful in the back half and that is going to be detrimental for the Redskins down the stretch.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

3-5 - 17/31
The game just looks too big and fast for Brandon Weeden.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

4-4 - 9/29
For as bad as Eli Manning has been this season, it is Carson Palmer that actually leads the league in multi-interception games this year. He has thrown at least two picks in five of the Cardinals seven games so far.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

3-5 - 14/28
Tavon Austin is proof that you should never make a 5'8 wide receiver the first player selected at the position in the NFL Draft. No matter how explosive his college tape was.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
28

3-4 - 25/32
The Raiders next two opponents have a combined five wins…and they get them both at home, its time to show up.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

2-6 - 15/31
The Giants won by 16 points but played badly enough to lose. How did Eli Manning and Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks lose all their chemistry? It looks like they have never even played together.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
30

1-6 - 10/30
Josh Freeman completed 37.7% of his pass attempts for 190 yards and one interception. That was ugly.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
31

0-8 - 25/32
We all know that the Jaguars desperately need to draft a franchise QB, but they have so many holes on defense as well. They have already surrendered 400+ yards to opposing offenses four times this season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
32

0-7 - 21/32
The Bucs have lost 11 of their last 12 and now will be without their best offensive player for the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury.
