Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings

ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 10 were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:

Oakland Raiders

  • Power Ranking: 12

  • My Power Ranking range: 11-13

  • Why: The Raiders are atop of the West, at least in the rankings. Good for them. They earned it.

Kansas City Chiefs

  • Power Ranking: 14

  • My Power Ranking range: 11-13

  • Why: The Chiefs can’t make a habit of blowing road games.

San Diego Chargers

  • Power Ranking: 16

  • My Power Ranking range: 15-17

  • Why: Have we seen the annual rise of the Chargers?

Denver Broncos

  • Power Ranking: 29

  • My Power Ranking range: 28-30

  • Why: The rest of the division is on the rise while Denver clearly isn’t.
