The Kansas City Chiefs are at #18 in <a href="http://www.gridirongrumblings.com/power.php">Gridiron Grumbling's Power Rankings</a>.<br>
<p>
Down from #20 a week ago, <a href="http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/powerRankings">Fox Sports</a> puts the Chiefs at #22 this week.<br>
<div class="blockquote">Damon Huard had the best game of his pro career on Sunday. What'd he have to say afterward? Well, what any team player would: "What a great offensive line. There are so many guys that make my job easy. And our defense -- are you kidding me?" The Chiefs looked good in their 41-0 romp of San Fran. Then again, it was against the Niners. Ross, Repete, and the rest of the kids from Hoover High could beat San Fran this year.</div><br>
<a href="http://www.realfootball365.com/nfl/articles/2006/10/nfl-power-rankings100406.html">Real Football 365</a> bumps the Chiefs up a spot to #22.<br>
<div class="blockquote">You'd think a 41-point win would move the Chiefs up higher, but let's see them do it against a real opponent first. San Francisco is, as usual, terrible.</div><br>
<a href="http://www.covers.com/sports/power-ranking/nfl-power-ranking.aspx">Covers.com</a> shoots the Chiefs up 6 spots to #18.<br>
<div class="blockquote">I'm not sure what the Chiefs did to deserve catching the Niners and Cardinals in back-to-back weeks, but it's certainly going to pay off now.</div><br>
Up two spots, <a href="http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/powerrankings">CBS Sportsline</a> has the Chiefs at #22 as well.<br>
<div class="blockquote">The bye week did the Chiefs a lot of good. Damon Huard has done a nice job in place of Trent Green, who will be back in two weeks.</div><br>
Just the same as CBS, <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/powerranking">ESPN</a> puts the Chiefs at #22, with the San Fran victory pushing them up two spots from last week.<br>
<div class="blockquote">Yes, they've only played three games, but the Chiefs have the No. 3 overall defense in the NFL. That's pretty good no matter who you play.</div><br>
I can understand why many of these rankings have the Chiefs in the lower 20s. We haven't played that well this season to deserve a higher ranking. Yet. Keep an eye on the No. 3 defense over the next few games and I think you will see the Chiefs rise significanly in the rankings.

I grabbed these links and this story idea from the <a href="http://www.milehighreport.com">Mile High Report</a>. Check it out and see where the Broncos stand in the power rankings.

Football Outsiders which judges the play of teams not the scores so much is a better judge of play and not the luck that exists in football has Chiefs number 6. Though they are basing it on early play and so are waiting for more data to see if this is real.

The Football Outsiders is good because they use DVOA. Thanks for the link.

Ross, Repete, and the rest of the kids from Hoover High could beat San Fran this year.Apparently, none of these guys play for the Rams (ranked 17th).

Exactly.

It's as if putting up 41 on the Niners, to go along with shutting them out, is no nig deal.

That one was discussed in another thread last night. Both KC and SF dropped 2 spots. Oddly enough, Denver went up in the rankings after not playing at all.

The rankings are worthless to begin with. This one is particularly bad. What's worse than worthless?

This one kills me---

I'm not sure what the Chiefs did to deserve catching the Niners and Cardinals in back-to-back weeks, but it's certainly going to pay off now.

WTF? What did SD do to deserve opening the season with Tennessee and the Raiders? Or Baltimore with Oak, TB, and Cle?

Not only did they go up, they went from 8th to 4th if I remember correctly.

That Fox one kills me. We beat a team by 41 points and we both move down two spots in that football scholar's ranking. Based on that logic, there's no way to improve your ranking if you play a team like San Francisco. If you win by 50, MAYBE you break even, but if you don't win by 50 you move down. I guess that just being associated with the 49ers is bad for a team's reputation.
