Week 5: 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:


Power ranking: 8th

My ranking range: 5-7

Why: I understand the Broncos being ranked last among the five unbeatens. There isn’t much belief, but the truth is Denver is playing as well as any team in the NFL right now.

San Diego

Power ranking: 16th

My ranking range: 13-15.

Why: I still like this team. I think it is better than average, but it is 2-2, so this ranking is not shocking.


Power ranking: 28th

My ranking range: 27-29

Why: The Raiders look like they are ready to stay here at the bottom of the barrel.

Kansas City

Power ranking: 30th

My ranking range: 30-31

Why: The Chiefs are showing no signs that they will be any higher than this for some time.
