Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings

ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 6 were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:

Kansas City Chiefs

Power Ranking: 13

My Power Ranking range: 11-13.

Why: The Chiefs have lost two games in a row, but they showed they are not pushovers.

Denver Broncos

Power Ranking: 22

My Power Ranking range: 21-23

Why: Denver competes. The next step is learning how to finish games.

San Diego Chargers

Power Ranking: 24

My Power Ranking range: 19-21

Why: San Diego is dominating the yardage game, but not the scoreboard game. Guess which one counts the most?

Oakland Raiders

Power Ranking: 28

My Power Ranking range: 26-28

Why: We’re nearly halfway through the season and all those preseason expectations clearly were off the mark. Oakland continues to struggle in key areas.
