NFL Power Rankings, AFC West style


Here's a look at how the AFC West teams fared in Week 1 power rankings. I do not have a vote, but I do have an opinion:

Denver Broncos

Power ranking: 13

My range: 9-11

Comment: I thought Denver would be ranked higher since Peyton Manning looks good going into the season.

San Diego Chargers

Power ranking: 15

My range: 14-16

Comment: Because of all the injuries, I think this ranking is fair.

Kansas City Chiefs

Power ranking: 17

My range: 9-11

Comment: I’m not surprised the Chiefs are ranked low, but I think this team, especially when it gets healthy, will be much better than expected.

Oakland Raiders

Power ranking: 26

My range: 20-22

Comment: I think the Raiders should be ranked higher than this. I don’t think they will be one of the league’s worst teams.
