Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings

By Bill Williamson

ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 6 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: 7-9.

Why: Perhaps no team in the history of the NFL lost by double digits and didn’t lose any respect. The Chiefs showed they are for real in a 19-9 loss at Indianapolis.

San Diego Chargers

Power Ranking: 21

My Power Ranking range: 14-16

Why: The Chargers are a very good team, but they are really killing themselves.

Denver Broncos

Power Ranking: 23

My Power Ranking range: 21-23

Why: Injuries are taking a big toll on this spunky team.

Oakland Raiders

Power Ranking: 25

My Power Ranking range: 23-25

Why: The Raiders have a manageable upcoming season, so they are primed to make a move.
