Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

Andre Ellington

32. Oakland Raiders (LW: 31)

The lone winless team left in the NFL through seven weeks, the Raiders have actually been playing better over the last two. Derek Carr shows promise week in and week out, but it remains a mystery when that first coveted win will actually come.

What to know: Carson Palmer faced pressure on less than 20 percent of his drop-backs, thanks in part due to the ineffectiveness from Raiders first-round pick Khalil Mack. Mack led the team with six defensive stops, but failed to generate any pressure (Pro Football Focus)
