I hear a lot about the media not liking the Chiefs. So I'd like to quantify the perception.

Imagine that all 32 teams end up 8-8, and every team has the exact same number of points scored and points yielded. Every team had two amazing comebacks and blew two big leads. Every quarterback had an 82.7 rating and every starting running back got 1,102 yards at a 4.2 clip. I could go on, but you get my drift.

Going into the 2006 playoffs, which has been expanded to 32 teams, please rank the teams that would get the most and least press love?

Here's my initial list.

1. Dallas Cowboys
2. Oakland Raiders
3. Green Bay Packers
4. New York Giants
5. Pittsburgh Steelers
6. New England Patriots
7. Indianapolis Colts
8. Denver Broncos
9. Philadelphia Eagles
10. New Orleans Saints
11. New York Jets
12. Chicago Bears
13. Miami Dolphins
14. Washington Redskins
15. San Francisco 49ers
16. Atlanta Falcons
17. Cincinnati Bengals
18. Arizona Cardinals
19. Minnesota Vikings
20. Carolina Panthers
21. Buffalo Bills
22. St. Louis Rams
23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
24. Jacksonville Jaguars
25. San Diego Chargers
26. Baltimore Ravens
27. Cleveland Browns
28. Seattle Seahawks
29. Houston Texans
30. Kansas City Chiefs
31. Detroit Lions
32. Tennessee Titans
