2011 NFC West power rankings: Week 3

By Mike Sando

The Seattle Seahawks rank 32nd in our power rankings heading into Week 3, even though the Kansas City Chiefs received two more last-place votes.

All five voters ranked Seattle between 30th and 32nd. The Chiefs drew a No. 24 vote from Ashley Fox to go with three last-place votes and one No. 31 vote. As a result, the Chiefs' average ranking (30.2) was slightly higher than the 30.8 for Seattle.

I went with the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, St. Louis Rams and Seattle, in that order. But I'll probably pick the Seahawks to win at home against the Cardinals in Week 3 based on home-field advantage and Arizona's defensive struggles.
