The Kansas City Chief are, as we expected, hovering around a top 10 team in the various Week 8 NFL power rankings floating around the web.

Here's the latest set of power rankings. I'm adding more all day at this link on SB Nation Kansas City (including why I ranked the Chiefs 12th in the SB Nation power rankings).

SB Nation: 12 (15): The Chiefs took care of business against the Jaguars. Their defense looks solid and the offense has put up 73 points in two games. Things are looking up in Kansas City.

Pro Football Talk: 10 (12): The schedule goes Charmin soft with a visit from the Bills. (Of course, that's what the Ravens thought, too.)

Whoops, this is from last week: Sporting News: 13 (12): Give them a couple of A's for effort, but that's little consolation. Their next "scary" opponent is Tennessee-in Week 16.

FOX Sports: 10 (13): You certainly could argue that Kansas City is probably the NFL's most improved team this season. The formula is very simple for them to win: run the ball well and take the ball out of QB Matt Cassel's hands as much as possible.

FanHouse: 15 (15): Good teams blow out bad teams at home, and after taking care of business against the Jaguars, Kansas City has earned the right to be called a "good team." The Chiefs are sticking to the winning formula of good defense plus a great running game, and it should continue to work for them.
