A weekly examination of the Chiefs’ ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 22 | Last Week: 20 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
Unlike last week, the Kansas City Chiefs are right about where they should be in this week’s ESPN.com Power Rankings. They’re 13th, so they jumped seven spots from last week.
Not sure I understand the logic of dropping the Chiefs a spot from 19 to 20 after they routed the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road and then bumping them up seven spots after they won a coin-toss game at home against the Dallas Cowboys. But that’s another debate for another time.
For now, 13 is about where the Chiefs belong. The Chiefs are immediately behind No. 12 Miami. No argument there. The Dolphins already have two wins on the road, though one of those happened against the anemic Cleveland Browns, who may be no better than the Jaguars.
The Chiefs are immediately ahead of the Colts, who lost a home game to the Dolphins on Sunday, and the Cowboys. No arguments there, either.
The Chiefs are in Philadelphia on Thursday night to take on the No. 19 Eagles.
