NFL Power Rankings: Chiefs Sliding Back To The Top 10

New, 1 comment

The Kansas City Chiefs have now won four of their first six games as we enter Week 8 of the season. Two of those wins have been in dominating fashion over the San Francisco 49ers and Jacksonville Jaguars. The two losses against the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans were close and generally considered good for a team like the Chiefs.

So where do they need to be ranked in the next round of NFL power rankings we'll see from around the web?

Last week the consensus seemed to be No. 12-16 in the various power rankings. The Chiefs had started out 3-0 but were coming off of two straight losses. Both losses were close and against good teams so the Chiefs weren't getting marked down too much for them.

Now the Chiefs are 4-2 and they're coming off of a dominating win over a previously .500 opponent.

I'm saying, at 4-2, the Chiefs merit consideration for a top 10 ranking. The Chiefs may not quite be a legitimate top 10 team yet but they're simply beating the teams they should and doing it at times in convincing fashion. There aren't a ton of question marks with this team as they're pretty solid all around, especially if Matt Cassel and Dwayne Bowe continue to play like they did.

Most of the NFL power rankings will come out on Tuesday so we'll take a look at them but the Chiefs should be getting some top 10 votes.
