Finally, the NFL season is hitting the halfway mark. And the Philadelphia Eagles moved to No. 1 on nearly every power rankings list after taking care of Washington on Monday night, holding the league’s best record at 6-1.

Even though Kansas City lost to the Oakland Raiders in Week 7, the Chiefs are still the No. 2 team on Yahoo Sports' power rankings. Also, the Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, and the New Orleans Saints are in the top 10. All three teams collected a victory in Week 7.

ESPN's power rankings doesn't have Philadelphia as the top team. Instead, the New England Patriots are at the top of that list. The Eagles and Chiefs are No. 2 and No. 3, though. Also, the Dallas Cowboys climbed up to the top 5. The Houston Texans and Oakland are in the top 10.

Philadelphia is the top team on's power rankings, but the Rams are behind the Eagles at No. 2. Kansas City dropped to No. 4, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are at No. 3. Also, the Buffalo Bills finally cracked the top 10.

CBS's power rankings has Philadelphia as the top team, and the top 10 looks similar to all the other lists. However, the Miami Dolphins climbed up to the top 10. Unfortunately for the Green Bay Packers, they slipped down each list. The Packers are currently on a two-game loosing streak, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers may not come back this season after breaking his collarbone against the Vikings in Week 6.

SB Nation also released its Hope Rankings heading into Week 8, and the Eagles are on top of the list. The isn't a power rankings list. Instead, it's a list that shows which teams have the most hope heading into Week 8.

It’s now a two-team race for the No. 1 draft pick, with the Browns and 49ers both sitting at 0-7. The Browns are still at the bottom of each list.
