The following is a look at why I placed the AFC West teams where I did in the Week 16 NFL power rankings:
Power ranking: 17
Where I ranked them: I had the Broncos 16th. They should slip some down the rankings after not showing very well against a very good Carolina team.
San Diego Chargers
Power ranking: 21
Where I ranked them: I had San Diego 20th. That was an impressive win. I had eight-loss San Diego ranked higher than seven-loss Washington.
Kansas City Chiefs
Power ranking: 28
Where I ranked them: Kansas City just can't finish. But it is playing decent football. Considering that the Chiefs are a two-win team, they're fairly ranked at No. 29.
Power ranking: 30
Where I ranked them: I had Oakland ranked 30th. The Raiders are getting worse. Is there time for them to catch Detroit as the league's worst team?
