AFC West: 2010 Week 9 Power Rankings’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 9 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: 7-9.
  • Why: The Chiefs are learning to do what it takes to win.
Oakland Raiders
  • Power Ranking: 16
  • My Power Ranking range: 14-16
  • Why: The Raiders are streaking up the rankings. Teams that score 92 points in two games tend to do that.
San Diego Chargers
  • Power Ranking: 22
  • My Power Ranking range: 18-20
  • Why: The Chargers can win every time they step on the field. But they can lose every time they step on the field as well.
Denver Broncos
  • Power Ranking: 28
  • My Power Ranking range: 28-30
  • Why: The Broncos are falling fast and hard.
