ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 5 were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:

Kansas City Chiefs
  • Power Ranking: 10
  • My Power Ranking range: 5-7.
  • Why: The Chiefs are creeping up the rankings. They could take a big leap up with a win at Indianapolis on Sunday.
San Diego Chargers
  • Power Ranking: 12
  • My Power Ranking range: 8-10
  • Why: The Chargers have the top-ranked offense and defense in the NFL. Besides the slop, this is a fine, fine team.
Denver Broncos
  • Power Ranking: 21
  • My Power Ranking range: 15-19
  • Why: The Broncos have shown they are a competitive outfit. They are not terrible.
Oakland Raiders
  • Power Ranking: 29
  • My Power Ranking range: 26-28
  • Why: The Raiders are showing signs of improvement, but they are still mistake-filled.
