The Green Bay Packers are predictably atop every single NFL Power Ranking you will ever find at this point in the season, and the latest Week 17 NFL Power Poll is no exception. What has changed, however, is the ranking of the Kansas City Chiefs over the course of the season to fall lower and lower with each passing week — at least it seems.
