Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings

ESPN.com’s final 2010 NFL Power Rankings were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:

Kansas City Chiefs

Power Ranking: 11

My Power Ranking range: 9-11

Why: The Chiefs are limping into the playoffs, but they still have a chance to make some noise.

San Diego Chargers

Power Ranking: 14

My Power Ranking range: 13-15

Why: In the end, this was a very disappointing season for the Chargers.

Oakland Raiders

Power Ranking: 15

My Power Ranking range: 14-16

Why: This was a season of progress for Oakland.

Denver Broncos

Power Ranking: 29

My Power Ranking range: 29-31

Why: This clearly was one of the worst teams in the NFL this season.
