Week 6: 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: 5th

My ranking range: 4-5

Why: I would have voted Denver fourth, over New Orleans, because the Broncos are 5-0 and the Saints are 4-0.

San Diego

Power ranking: 16th

My ranking range: 13-15.

Why: I have the Chargers slightly higher, but I wasn’t surprised they stood pat during their bye week.


Power ranking: 29th

My ranking range: 29-30

Why: The Raiders are close to being among the bottom three of the league.

Kansas City

Power ranking: 30th

My ranking range: 30-31

Why: The Chiefs have to show they can win a game before they get out of the dreaded “30-range.”
