NFL power rankings Week 9: Chiefs hang on to top spot


Another week of NFL action is in the books, which means it is time to for us to re-examine the landscape of the league and see where every team stacks up against each other.

Once again, the Kansas City Chiefs take the top spot, with the division rival Denver Broncos right behind. The Indianapolis Colts were narrowly edged for the top two spots and come in at No. 3, while the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots round out the top five.

For the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars, they continue to hold up the rear as they search for their first wins of the regular season.
