NFL Power Rankings 2012, Week 12: Chiefs collapse into cellar

On the bright side, it can't get any worse for Kansas City; they're now ranked as the bottom team in the league in the latest SB Nation Power Rankings.

The Kansas City Chiefs are at the absolute bottom of the latest SB Nation Power Rankings, taking the not-so-coveted 32nd slot.

The new spot represents a drop from last week's Power Rankings, when Kansas City held the 31st spot in the rankings. That was before Cincinnati shellacked the Chiefs 28-6. SB Nation NFL Editor Joel Thorman put the state of things succinctly, writing, "This team gets blown out more than anyone else."

The Chiefs (1-9) have still only held a lead two times in the 2012 season. Things don't look to get much better when they host the AFC West-leading Denver Broncos (7-3) at Arrowhead Stadium at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

ESPN's power rankings, as well as those of NBC/ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio, also have the Chiefs dead last in the league. But Kansas City fans can take a small (okay, tiny) amount of cheer from the CBS Power Rankings: the Chiefs are ranked 31st.
