Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings
By Bill Williamson
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.
Power Ranking: 17
My Power Ranking range: 17-19
Why: The Raiders’ defense is giving up way too many points.
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.
