NFL Power Rankings: AFC West Possibly Worst Division In NFL

The Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos are all not where they’d like to be on the latest SB Nation NFL Power Rankings. That’s because they’re likely the worst division in the entire NFL at this point. The Raiders are 6-4 and lead the division. The Chargers and Chiefs are 4-6 and sit in the basement. Everyone is close because no one is either that good or that bad. Instead, it’s a middling division that should prove an easy ouster for someone in the playoffs.

Currently the Raiders sit at No. 14 in the SB Nation Rankings with Joel Thorman commenting, “Your first place Raiders. Oakland QB Carson Palmer is playing much better and Oakland is winning.” The Broncos are next at No. 16 and the Chargers and Chiefs fell to No. 21 and 22 respectively. The way the Broncos are playing, they’re likely the best bet to keep climbing since the Raiders have looked very beatable at times. Then again, in first place, it’s hard for anyone to say something negative about them.
