Breaking down AFC West Power Rankings

ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 2 were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:

San Diego Chargers

  • Power Ranking: 12

  • My Power Ranking range: 7-10

  • Why: I don’t think it is panic time in San Diego. The Chargers have some things to work out, but it’s a fixable situation.

Kansas City Chiefs

  • Power Ranking: 23

  • My Power Ranking range: 17-19

  • Why: I think No. 23 is way low. Hey, it’s just one game, but that’s all we know. There weren’t 22 teams better than Kansas City in Week 1.

Denver Broncos

  • Power Ranking: 25

  • My Power Ranking range: 24-27

  • Why: The Broncos clearly have a long way to go, but they did not embarrass themselves in Jacksonville.

Oakland Raiders

  • Power Ranking: 27

  • My Power Ranking range: 26-28

  • Why: You can’t argue with this slot. The Raiders were one of the most disappointing teams on the field in Week 1.
