The Kansas City Chiefs are slowly climbing Power Rankings this week and the National Football Post moves the team up four notches from 26 to 22 in week 16 as the Chiefs are still in playoff contention. The win over the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers kept the Chiefs mathematically alive and gave the team a lot of confidence heading into their final two games of the season — games against the very two teams in front of them in the AFC West.
The Chiefs had just come off of one of the worst weeks an NFL team could endure with the loss of their coach and the ensuing drama. Much credit goes to Romeo Crennel who was able to hold things together and develop a game plan along with his assistant coaches to take on and beat the best team in the NFL by a wide margin.
The Chiefs now face the Raiders and Broncos for their remaining playoff hopes.
