NFL Power Rankings 2012, Week 16: Chiefs still control the cellar

Perhaps the best news for Kansas City fans is that the end of the regular season is just two games away.

The Kansas City Chiefs are still in the basement of the NFL standings, and are accordingly down at the bottom of most of the NFL power rankings sets on the web.

The Chiefs are having a dismal year by any standard, but SB Nation NFL editor (and Arrowhead Pride co-founder) Joel Thorman finds a particularly succinct way to sum up their struggles in his latest power rankings:

The four worst point differentials in franchise history have come in the last five years.

Yeah, that's not exactly encouraging for the future of the franchise. Well, at least American hero Ricky Stanzi might be getting his starting shot at last.

CBS Sports senior columnist Pete Prisco is the lone outlier this week, ranking the Chiefs 31st, just above the equally hapless Jacksonville Jaguars. Over at NBC Sports' ProFootballTalk, Mike Florio is less optimistic, condemning the Chiefs to dead last. ESPN's rankings roundup also has the Chiefs bringing up the rear of the league.
