NFL Power Rankings: ESPN Has Kansas City Chiefs At No. 24

Well, it’s not where the reigning division champs of the AFC would like to be, but there’s no doubt that the Kansas City Chiefs are moving upward on Power Ranking lists throughout the sports world. The Chiefs currently sit at No. 24 on the latest from ESPN with Bill Kuharsky noting, "Coming off two wins and a bye, the Chiefs get Oakland, which has a developing quarterback situation. "

That Oakland game is the key match-up for the Chiefs. With a win, Todd Haley rights a ship that was supposed to run around and have him fired at 3-3 and a real shot at the division. With a loss, the Chiefs are staring at a 2-4 record with the Raiders and Chargers running away with the division and, with it, any realistic chance of a playoff appearance.

The Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots sit atop the ESPN Rankings, as most of them, at No. 1 and 2.
