Week 8 saw some teams get back on track, some continued to get hotter and some teams fell back. One team’s dream for an undefeated season was derailed and one team is still fighting to find it’s first win after 8 grueling weeks. As the 2017 season closes in on it’s final game, some of the usual characters are still atop the football world.
