KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs climbed three spots to 12th in this week's ESPN Power Rankings.
After winning five of their last six games, the 5-3 Chiefs deserve a spot or two better than 12. I'd have them at 10, ahead of the 5-2-1 Cincinnati Bengals (11th) and 6-3 Dallas Cowboys (ninth). The Bengals have two wins over the Baltimore Ravens but otherwise have beaten only bottom-feeding teams Atlanta, Tennessee and Jacksonville.
The Cowboys have lost two straight games, both at home.
The Chiefs on Sunday play against the Bills, also 5-3, in Buffalo. The Bills, ranked 18th, are another team ranked too low.
