NFL Power Rankings Week 12: KC Chiefs Are Above Average

It's Tuesday which means NFL power rankings. Week 12 saw the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Arizona Cardinals so they can expect to rise back to the No. 12-15 range they've been in for most of the season. The Chiefs had lost two in a row coming into last week's game so they were ranked a little lower than we've seen them since the start of the season.

But they're back around No. 12-15, which I think is fair. Here are some power rankings from around the web:

SB Nation: 14 (17) - "The Chiefs stand alone atop the AFC West but for how long? They've got back-to-back divisional games coming up against the Broncos and Chargers. First step though is beating Seattle this weekend."

SB Nation Atlanta: 14 (20) - Done via mathematical formula.

CBS Sports: 14 (16) - "They're back in first place by themselves after beating up on Arizona. Now comes a tough road game at Seattle."

FanHouse: 15 (19) - "Good teams win home games against subpar opponents, and the Chiefs did just that in Week 11 by beating Arizona. They're now 5-0 at home this season, Their remaining schedule isn't imposing at all, and if they can squeak out a No. 2 playoff seed, they may reach the AFC championship."

NFL Mocks: 13 - "This team is far ahead in their rebuilding process but they are more focused on the playoffs not rebuilding. While the Chiefs have surprised people this year I think their lack of talent will catch up with them at some point."
