Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings

By Bill Williamson

ESPN.com’s final 2010 NFL Power Rankings were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:

Kansas City Chiefs

Power Ranking: 11

My Power Ranking range: 9-11

Why: The Chiefs are limping into the playoffs, but they still have a chance to make some noise.

San Diego Chargers

Power Ranking: 14

My Power Ranking range: 13-15

Why: In the end, this was a very disappointing season for the Chargers.

Oakland Raiders

Power Ranking: 15

My Power Ranking range: 14-16

Why: This was a season of progress for Oakland.

Denver Broncos

Power Ranking: 29

My Power Ranking range: 29-31

Why: This clearly was one of the worst teams in the NFL this season.
