    While the Patriots hold steady at No. Yasmani Grandal Jersey . 1, the Seahawks and Broncos inch their way closer to the top in this weeks ESPN NFL Power Rankings. ESPNs power panel (a group of more than 80 writers, editors and TV personalities) saw Seattles tie game against Arizona as a plus, moving the team up a spot to No. 2.Methodology note: These rankings reflect who voters think would win in head-to-head matchups. Higher-ranked teams would more often be favored against lower-ranked teams. Coming off a win doesnt guarantee a jump, and coming off a loss doesnt guarantee a fall.Check out the rest of the league and where each team ranks.Previous rankings: Week 7 | Week 6 | Week 5 | Week 4 | Week 3 | Week 2 | Week 1 | PreseasonESPN Stats & Information contributed the following research.1. New England Patriots2016 record: 6-1 Week 7 ranking: 1Tom Brady is completing 75.2 percent of his passes this season and has yet to throw an interception. When targeting his tight ends, hes completing 82 percent of his passes. New England travels to Buffalo for a Week 8 divisional grudge match. The Bills shut out the Patriots earlier this season, but Brady wasnt under center for that game and Rob Gronkowski wasnt 100 percent.2. Seattle Seahawks2016 record: 4-1-1 Week 7 ranking: 3The Seahawks have lost only one game so far this season, but things are off in Seattle. For starters, the team is averaging only 3.1 yards per rush this season, second worst in the NFL. A trip to New Orleans could help the Seahawks get the running game back on track.3. Denver Broncos2016 record: 5-2 Week 7 ranking: 5The Broncos moved into a tie with Oakland for the AFC West lead as well as improved to 5-2 after a victory over the Texans on Monday night. Denver is 5-1 with QB Trevor Siemian, who hasnt thrown an interception since Week 2. Siemians one loss? The Chargers, whom Denver hosts in Week 8.4. Dallas Cowboys2016 record: 5-1 Week 7 ranking: 4Well find out soon if the Cowboys stick with Dak Prescott or go back to Tony Romo as the teams starting QB. The decision comes at a critical time for the Cowboys, as they could take a big lead in the NFC East with a win against the Eagles in Week 8. If Romo starts, keep in mind he has won five of his past six games against Philadelphia.5. Minnesota Vikings2016 record: 5-1 Week 7 ranking: 2What a difference a week makes. The Vikings unbeaten season ended at Philadelphia, and QB Sam Bradfords three turnovers sort of reminded us of, well, the old Sam Bradford. Can the Vikings get back on track Monday night against the 1-6 Bears?6. Green Bay Packers2016 record: 4-2 Week 7 ranking: 10Green Bay picked up the win in Week 7, but how long can it survive with wide receivers playing running back? The Packers got seven yards from halfbacks, which worked against the Bears, but the host Falcons will provide a much tougher test this week.7. Arizona Cardinals2016 record: 3-3-1 Week 7 ranking: 13The good news is the Cardinals havent lost games and havent committed a turnover in each of their past three games. But it could be tough to feel good after that Week 7 tie with Seattle. Arizona looks to get revenge on the Panthers in Carolina this week.8. Pittsburgh Steelers2016 record: 4-3 Week 7 ranking: 7QB Landry Jones looked pretty good Sunday until the fourth quarter, when he went 9-of-20 passing. The Steelers bye this week will give Ben Roethlisberger time to heal without missing a game, but Jones could be in line for a few more starts before Big Ben returns.9. Kansas City Chiefs2016 record: 4-2 Week 7 ranking: 11The Chiefs continue to find ways to win, but does anyone fear them? They have a 4-2 record and the fourth-best turnover differential but only a plus-13 point differential. The Chiefs head to Indianapolis this week riding a two-game winning streak.10. Atlanta Falcons2016 record: 4-3 Week 7 ranking: 6The Falcons still sit atop the NFC South despite losing two in a row but they need to stop the bleeding. A home game against the Packers, who have won three straight against Atlanta, and two tough road games (Bucs, Eagles) await the Falcons before their Week 11 bye.11. Oakland Raiders2016 record: 5-2 Week 7 ranking: 14The Raiders are still chilling at the top of the AFC West standings, but are they for real? Of the five-win teams this season, the Raiders by far have the worst point differential (plus-6). A trip to Tampa in Week 8 could help bolster that margin though.12. Philadelphia Eagles2016 record: 4-2 Week 7 ranking: 15The Eagles have one offensive touchdown in their past two games. Their defense has one touchdown in that span, and their special teams unit has two. Its never a bad thing to get points from defense and special teams, but QB Carson Wentz needs to start moving the ball again, especially at Dallas in Week 8.13. Cincinnati Bengals2016 record: 3-4 Week 7 ranking: 16If you cant stop A.J. Green, its going to be tough to beat the Bengals. Case in point: Green is averaging 10 receptions and 174 yards in wins this season, compared with five receptions and 63 yards in losses. Washington will take its turn trying to stop Green this week.14. San Diego Chargers2016 record: 3-4 Week 7 ranking: 19The Chargers defense still has some problems, but pass rush is not one of them. Rookie defensive end Joey Bosa has recorded 4.0 total sacks in two of his three games and San Diego ranks in the top 10 in sacks and pressure percentage. Theyll be chasing after the Broncos in Week 8.15. Detroit Lions2016 record: 4-3 Week 7 ranking: 21Matthew Stafford has thrown 11 touchdowns with no picks in the Lions four wins this season, leading a fourth-quarter comeback in each game. Eventually the Lions may win by more than a score, but theyll have their work cut out for them in upcoming games at Houston and at Minnesota.16. Buffalo Bills2016 record: 4-3 Week 7 ranking: 8The Bills couldnt get their ground game going against the Dolphins and they lost, a common theme for them this season. The Bills are averaging 73 rushing yards in losses and 212 rushing yards in wins. They ripped off 134 the first time they played the Patriots in Week 4. Can they do it again this week?17. Houston Texans2016 record: 4-3 Week 7 ranking: 17The Texans have been held without an offensive touchdown twice this season. They have nine offensive touchdowns on the year, fewest in the NFL. If they cant find the end zone against the Lions in Week 8 -- who rank in the bottom five in defensive efficiency -- Houston will have a problem.18. New York Giants2016 record: 4-3 Week 7 ranking: 12The Giants head into their bye 4-3, having won two straight after losing three straight after winning two straight. It has been a streaky season for first-year head coach Ben McAdoo and the G-Men, who are one of three teams with a winning record and a negative point differential this season.19. Washington Redskins2016 record: 4-3 Week 7 ranking: 9The Redskins have allowed a game-winning score in the final five minutes in two of their three losses this season. Those could come back to haunt them with the NFC East as tight as it is. The Redskins travel to London to face Cincinnati this week.20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers2016 record: 3-3 Week 7 ranking: 28Raise your hand if you thought it would be Jacquizz Rodgers who would be saving the Buccaneers season. Rodgers has posted his first two career 100-yard rushing games his past two games, rushing a total of 56 times. Rodgers & Co. will look to repeat against the Raiders in Week 8.21. Baltimore Ravens2016 record: 3-4 Week 7 ranking: 18The Ravens have lost four straight games for the first time since 2007 (when they lost nine straight), so this Week 8 bye probably couldnt have come at a better time. QB Joe Flacco has a lot to figure out: He has just two touchdown passes in his past five games.22. Carolina Panthers2016 record: 1-5 Week 7 ranking: 23The Panthers return to the field after a bye in hopes of ending a four-game losing streak. It wont be the NFC Championship Game rematch we all expected at the start of this season, but it could be a chance for Carolina to right the ship. The Panthers scored 49 against Arizona in the 2015 playoffs.23. Tennessee Titans2016 record: 3-4 Week 7 ranking: 22The Titans could be a lot better if they didnt have to play at home (1-3 this season). Tennessee is 2-10 at home with a minus-15 turnover differential the past two seasons (4-7, minus-3 on the road). Another home game awaits for the Titans on Thursday against Jacksonville.24. Indianapolis Colts2016 record: 3-4 Week 7 ranking: 24QB Andrew Luck is on pace for career highs in completion percentage, touchdown-interception ratio and Total QBR this season, yet the Colts are below .500. And believe it or not, after winning in Week 7 at Tennessee, Luck has a chance to win consecutive starts for the first time since 2014 when Indy hosts Kansas City in Week 8.25. New Orleans Saints2016 record: 2-4 Week 7 ranking: 20Its rare for the Saints defense to hold opponents to fewer than 30 points, but New Orleans has not taken advantage of those rare instances. They are 0-2 in such games this season. The defense could hold again against Seattle this week, but points will be tough to come by.26. Miami Dolphins2016 record: 3-4 Week 7 ranking: 27O.J. Simpson. Earl Campbell. Ricky Williams. Jay Ajayi. Those are the only players in NFL history to rush for 200 yards in back-to-back games. The Dolphins are on bye this week, though, so well have to wait until Week 9 to see if Ajayi can make it three straight.27. Los Angeles Rams2016 record: 3-4 Week 7 ranking: 26The case for Case is starting to run thin as the Rams have lost three straight, with Keenum throwing an interception on the Rams final drive each time. With a bye this week, will the Rams have made any changes when we see them against Carolina in Week 9?28. New York Jets2016 record: 2-5 Week 7 ranking: 25Since QB Geno Smith is done for the season, the Jets will have no choice but to believe in the Fitz-magic again. It shouldnt take much magic, no matter who starts, to beat the 0-7 Browns this week.29. Jacksonville Jaguars2016 record: 2-4 Week 7 ranking: 29The Jaguars get their opportunity to shine in prime time Thursday against the Titans. If their first six games are any indication, they wont be making a good first impression at the start of the game: The Jaguars have an NFL-worst minus-44 point differential in the first half.30. Chicago Bears2016 record: 1-6 Week 7 ranking: 30QB Jay Cutler is back. He was hurt on Monday night in Week 2 and hell make his return on Monday night in Week 8. Hell have to face the Vikings, against whom he has lost three straight. They boast a defense with the most takeaways and fewest points and yards allowed this season. Good luck with that.31. San Francisco 49ers2016 record: 1-6 Week 7 ranking: 31Forget the 49ers quarterback situation for now. In seven games, the 49ers have allowed 1,296 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. Only three running backs have hit those marks for an entire season since 2013, and the 49ers have yielded it in seven games. Guess what theyll be working on during their bye?32. Cleveland Browns2016 record: 0-7 Week 7 ranking: 32Six Browns have thrown a pass this season. The researchers at Elias Sports Bureau say the last team in a non-strike year that had six players throw a pass in the first seven games: the 1976 Buccaneers, who went 0-14. The 0-7 Browns are halfway there and host the Jets this week. Clayton Kershaw Jersey . With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. Yasiel Puig Jersey . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Highlight videos of offensive linemen are usually anything but knee-slapping sources of entertainment.Unless youre like Wesley Johnson -- and your New York Jets teammates get a hold of one.I wish it didnt exist, said Johnson, shaking his head Friday. I think its like a Ron Swanson deal (from `Parks and Recreation). I just dont like being on video, period.But theres Johnson, back in his college days at Vanderbilt in 2013, delivering a brief but passionate halftime speech , urging his Commodores teammates to step it up while holding a 10-7 lead over UMass. He smacks his helmet against a locker stall, knocking two nameplates off, and tosses his chair while finishing with an emphatic: Lets go!It worked.Final score: Vandy 24, UMass 7.Someone said, `Wesley should say something, and I was like, `Youre right, Im going to say something, Johnson recalled. Sure, it was fiery, but I was mumbling through it. We knew we were going to win, but we were playing bad. Thats what I was mad about.Jets left tackle Ben Ijalana saw a reporters tweet with a link to the video Thursday night and sent it to the rest of the offensive line.Our group chat exploded, guard Dakota Dozier said with a laugh. It was great.Even quarterback Geno Smith came over to compliment Johnson, who was in the middle of an interview.Hey, Smith said, that was a great halftime speech.It certainly has made the rounds -- even if Johnson would prefer it to fade into the nether regions of the internet.It just shows how passionate Wes is, Dozier said. I mean, thats honestly who he is. Hes a passionate man. I can totally get it where hes a little embarrassed, but at the end of the day, it makes you want to play with the guy. Youve got a guy that fired up, it rubs off.Johnson is about to get lots more playing time as he replaces the injured Nick Mangold for the final four games of the season, starting with Sunday at San Francisco.Wes has done a good job, coach Todd Bowles said. Hes getting better every week. The big thing about him is that hes smart and hes a fighter.Mangold was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Thursday with a severe ankle injury. Johnson stepped in for Mangold for four games after the seven-time Pro Bowl selection initially sprained the ankle against Baltimore on Oct. 23. Mangold returned last Monday, but re-injured it against Indianapolis.The 32-year-old Mangold is due nearly $6.075 million in base salary next year and the Jets could save $9. Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey. 75 million on the salary cap by cutting him. Johnson is scheduled to be a restricted free agent, but could be a younger -- he turns 26 next month -- and cheaper option for New York. So, these last four games could be, in essence, an audition for Johnson.It would be bad to think about that, Johnson said. Its kind of the mental fortitude thing where youve got to focus on the 49ers. If I look past that, Im doing everyone in the locker room a disservice.Johnson has been solid in relief of Mangold this season while continuing to develop as an NFL center.I think that we all have great expectations for Wes and his future, offensive coordinator Chan Gailey said recently. I think hes got the chance to be a very good football player before its over with. I mean hes not Nick Mangold, but theres not many of them out there that are.Johnson was a four-year starter at Vanderbilt, where he established himself as a versatile lineman by playing tackle, center and guard. He was voted an offensive co-captain by his teammates his final two seasons, and capped his college career by being drafted by Pittsburgh in the fifth round in 2014.Johnson was waived by the Steelers early during his rookie season after not suiting up for the first five games, and the Jets claimed him two days later. He didnt play in any games for New York that season, but saw action in 10 last year -- including filling in for an injured Mangold for one.He worked all along the line this summer, including at center, proving himself to be a valuable backup.Coming out of college, I had played left tackle the last few years, and the talk was, hey, this guy has played most of the positions, so that could be where he fits in, Johnson said. I was just looking to help out as much as I can and once a spot opened up, see if I can take advantage of that opportunity -- at whatever the spot it is. And, its happened to be at center.Other than that infamous Vandy video, theres not a lot on the internet on the Nashville native, who comes across as low-key and humble. He enjoys military history, the HBO show Game of Thrones and the Song of Ice and Fire novel on which the hit series is based.Im an OK guy, Johnson said, laughing.
