The Week 8 Power Rankings are in ... but not without a hot sports opinion fresh out of the oven.
How people could consider Sunday night's game between the Seahawks and Cardinals bad football vexes me. I get it: Your fantasy running back didn't score. What we saw was a clash between two inspired defenses hell-bent on not letting the other win the game, a contest played with unwavering intensity. It was emblematic of the very fabric the sport was built on. Many of the penalties were personal fouls, pulling guys off the pile ... or holding because the pass rushers were playing out of their minds. NOT SLOPPY FOOTBALL. Guess how many turnovers there were? None. Now, tell me that's sloppy football.
Now, on to some of your hot takes ...

Won the bye week, huh? That's a new one, man. But I like it. Don't you worry, though: The Panthers didn't climb up there, either.
Let the dissension commence!
C) The big mistake: Dan Quinn going for it on fourth down on his side of the 50. He might have confidence in his offense to pick up those yards, but it sure revealed a lack of confidence in his defense to stop another San Diego drive. Punt it.
**Power Rankings side note:** Those throwbacks were sweeeeet on Sunday. </content:power-ranking>
