NFL Power Rankings: Denver ends at top

By Bill Williamson

Here's a look at how the AFC West teams fared in the final NFL Power Rankings. I do not have a vote, but I do have an opinion:

Denver Broncos

" Power ranking: 1

" My range: 1

" Comment: It’s difficult to think there is a team playing better than Denver right now.

San Diego Chargers

" Power ranking: 22

" My range: 21-23

" Comment: Finishing 22nd just wasn’t going to be acceptable in San Diego this season. Norv Turner and A.J. Smith paid for it.

Oakland Raiders

" Power ranking: 30

" My range: 29-30

" Comment: I didn’t expect a great season, but it didn’t expect it to be this rough.

Kansas City Chiefs

" Power ranking: 32

" My range: 32

" Comment: The Chiefs fell to this spot early and they couldn’t get up.
