If you want to know how bad the bottom third of the NFL has been this season, consider this: the Kansas City Chiefs just lost their starting QB for the season, joining their star RB and star safety on the injured-reserve list.
Yet somehow the Chiefs are still at No. 21 in SBNation's latest NFL Power Rankings:
21. Kansas City Chiefs (4-5, LW: 19): The Chiefs had won four in a row, tied for first in the division, and faced home games against Miami and Denver -- and they lost them both. That tells you where this team is right now.
Now they're counting on little-used reserve QB Tyler Palko to save their season. In four seasons, Palko has thrown 9-13 passes for 82 yards.
The good news is the rest of the AFC West isn't much better: it's the only division in the NFL without a single team that has a positive point differential.
The bad news is their schedule over the next five weeks: at New England, Pittsburgh, at Chicago, at the New York Jets, Green Bay.
