NFL's Week 8 is in the books, and if it wasn't clear before, the New England Patriots are easily the team to beat.

After another week of play, four teams remain undefeated. But, at least in our view, there's a one-less team that's earned its way into a top-four ranking. The Pats, Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos have combined to go 28-0, while 10 of the 32 teams sit with either one or two wins for the season.
