For the first time in NFL history, four teams are undefeated in seven games. Three of the four are AFC teams, as the New England Patriots, the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Denver Broncos all have zeroes in the loss column. With the Green Bay Packers Monday night loss, coming at the hands of the Broncos, the Carolina Panthers are the lone unbeaten in the NFC.

On to the NFC West.

For the third straight week, three NFC West teams won their matchup, and for the first time since week one, the division as a whole is over .500 at 16-15. Two teams have winning records, another has an even record, and a final team sits under .500, which is the exact way the division finished last season.

As things stand now, only one NFC West team would make the playoffs, as the division winner. After eight weeks weeks of action, here are the new Golden Gate Sports’ NFC West power rankings.
