Another week of NFL action is in the books, and we have a new No. 1 at the top of the power rankings. The Kansas City Chiefs are the lone unbeatens after the Denver Broncos loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Peyton Manning’s return to Lucas Oil Stadium.

In perhaps one of the most surprising developments, the Jacksonville Jaguars finally moved up from last place, despite a blowout loss to the San Diego Chargers in Week 7.

Where does your team come in on the list?

Here are the power rankings heading in to Week 5 of the regular season:

    Yes the Chiefs are undefeated, but not the best by any means. They were the worst team last year and got an easy schedule because of it. Good team yes, #1 by no means.

    • ……ChiefsFan……

      Only two games were added to the schedule to compensate for last years record. One against the Browns, and one against the Bills. They haven’t played either of those games yet, both are coming up in the next two weeks.

      I’m not saying you can’t have an opinion, just maybe do your homework first.

    I think we all know that the Chiefs aren’t as good as their record indicates. The Texans suck and only lost by one point, the Raiders were tied 7–7 with them all the way till there was three minutes left in the third quarter, not to mention they have one of the easiest schedules so far through the first half of the season in all of the NFL. The rest of the team the Chiefs have played, well! Their record speaks for itself. The funny thing is, they will skate through this season into the playoffs and then most likely get their butts kicked in the first round. hell, the Raiders should have beaten the Chiefs if their defense wasn’t playing against the Raiders practice squad offensive lineman. What a joke that was. I’m pretty sure there will be a couple games in the second half where the Chiefs will get slapped with reality.

    72 Dolphins can pop the cork!!! KC only undefeated team… Won’t last long, still haven’t played Denver TWICE!!!

  • Tom Sparks

    Wow, no love for the Chiefs, who wudda’ thought? 7-0, no respect! Very typical knee jerk to a team that IS playing like a TEAM! Gotta start thinking like Reid and put these jealous, zealots behind us. They are a waste of time!
    Opinions are like assholes, everybody’s got ‘em! Just face the facts, we’re 7-0 and playing pretty much the same teams Denver has! Live with the truth!
