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.
Power Ranking: 23
My Power Ranking range: 21-23
Why: Injuries are taking a big toll on this spunky team.
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.
