The Kansas City Chiefs continue to climb up ESPN's Power Rankings coming off a thrilling 23-20 victory over the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night football. The Chiefs came into the week ranked at No. 21, but they have climbed up to No. 18 in ESPN's latest rankings.

Nobody would have thought that the Chiefs would find themselves tied for the division lead at 4-3 after getting blown out by a combined score of 89-10 in their first two games against the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions. But they have won four in a row and sit atop the division with the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers.

The Chargers fell down from No. 9 in last weeks rankings to No. 15 this week. The Raiders fall from No. 15 to No. 17 after their bye week, and the Broncos come in at No. 28 this week which is a spot down from where they sat last week.
