Week 3: AFC West power rankings

Posted by ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson

We have streamlined the voting process. I no longer have a vote. AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky is the AFC representative.

I still have an opinion though, so here goes:

San Diego

Power ranking: 11th

My ranking range: 6-8.

Why: The Chargers should have beaten Baltimore, the No. 1 ranked team, Sunday. San Diego is ravaged by injuries and still played well. This is a top-10 team.


Power ranking: 20th

My ranking range: 16-18

Why: I think Denver is being under ranked. I’m not ready to say this is going to be surprise team, but the Broncos are 2-0 and are better than No. 20.


Power ranking: 26th

My ranking range: 21-23

Why: The under ranking is continuing. The Raiders are closer to the middle than the bottom of the league.

Kansas City

Power ranking: 30th

My ranking range: 28-31

Why: Finally, I agree. The Chiefs have some life. But they just can’t win. So they are at the bottom of the league for now.

Meanwhile, Kuharsky has a post explaining his San Diego and Kansas City decisions.
