ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 5 were released Tuesday. Here are my thoughts on how the AFC West teams fared in the rankings:
Power Ranking: 10
My Power Ranking range: 5-7.
Why: The Chiefs are creeping up the rankings. They could take a big leap up with a win at Indianapolis on Sunday.
Power Ranking: 12
My Power Ranking range: 8-10
Why: The Chargers have the top-ranked offense and defense in the NFL. Besides the slop, this is a fine, fine team.
Power Ranking: 21
My Power Ranking range: 15-19
Why: The Broncos have shown they are a competitive outfit. They are not terrible.
Power Ranking: 29
My Power Ranking range: 26-28
Why: The Raiders are showing signs of improvement, but they are still mistake-filled.
