AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
Denver is No. 1 in ESPN’s NFL Power Rankings this week. Here are a couple of tidbits:
- ESPN.com’s Power Rankings go back to 2002. This is the first time Denver has been No. 1.
- The last time an AFC West team was in the top slot? The Chargers, in Week 18 of 2006.
Kansas City assistant linebackers coach Adam Zimmer was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving Sunday night. The team is aware of the situation, but has yet to decide on Zimmer’s status for the season finale at Denver.
Oakland cornerback Phillip Adams suffered a groin injury and right guard Mike Brisiel suffered a concussion at Carolina.
