Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings

By Bill Williamson

ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 11 were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:

Oakland Raiders

"Power Ranking: 12

"My Power Ranking range: 11-13

"Why: The Raiders have control if they win the division. Can they continue to rise up the rankings?

Kansas City Chiefs

"Power Ranking: 15

"My Power Ranking range: 14-16

"Why: It’s not panic time, but the loss at Denver is cause for some alarm.

San Diego Chargers

"Power Ranking: 16

"My Power Ranking range: 15-17

"Why: The Chargers have to like where they sit after an uneven start to the season.

Denver Broncos

"Power Ranking: 26

"My Power Ranking range: 24-26

"Why: The Broncos are coming off perhaps their best showing of the Josh McDaniels’ era.
