ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 17 were released Wednesday. 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: This team is not a fluke. It’s time the Chiefs receive due credit.

San Diego Chargers

Power Ranking: 14

My Power Ranking range: 14-16

Why: The 2010 Chargers proved that talent isn’t the only ingredient needed for success.

Oakland Raiders

Power Ranking: 17

My Power Ranking range: 17-19

Why: The Raiders’ defense is giving up way too many points.

Denver Broncos

Power Ranking: 31

My Power Ranking range: 31

Why: The Broncos are ranked where they belong, but Tim Tebow gave the team hope last week.
