ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 9 were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:
Power Ranking: 11
My Power Ranking range: 7-9.
Why: The Chiefs are learning to do what it takes to win.
Power Ranking: 16
My Power Ranking range: 14-16
Why: The Raiders are streaking up the rankings. Teams that score 92 points in two games tend to do that.
Power Ranking: 22
My Power Ranking range: 18-20
Why: The Chargers can win every time they step on the field. But they can lose every time they step on the field as well.
Power Ranking: 28
My Power Ranking range: 28-30
Why: The Broncos are falling fast and hard.
