Our first 2010 NFL power rankings have been released.
I do not have a vote. AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky is the AFC representative. I have an opinion though, so here goes:
Power ranking: 4th
My ranking range: 4-6
Why: Despite many key departures, this is still a top-flight team because of a dominant passing game.
Power ranking: 20th
My ranking range: 22-26
Why: The Broncos have a lot of holes. They lost eight of their final 10 games. I don’t see a lot of immediate improvement.
Power ranking: 24
My ranking range: 21-23
Why: The Raiders will be improved because of the addition of Jason Campbell. This is far from a great team, but there is some hope in Oakland.
Power ranking: 29
My ranking range: 24-27
Why: The Chiefs have to show they can compete. I think they will. They had a good offseason.
