NFL Power Rankings Week 16: Kansas City Chiefs Hanging Around Top 10

We're back with more NFL power rankings for Week 16. The common placement of the Chiefs this week seems to be around No. 9-12, which is about right. The Chiefs are two more victories away from securing a spot in the playoffs so they're doing something right but they're not quite on that elite level of teams (yet).

Click here to see me work through the Chiefs ranking. I said No. 8-13 was their window and settled on No. 11. Here's a roundup of the various power rankings out there:

SB Nation 11 (14): "The Chiefs control their own destiny for another week as they beat the Rams. Two more wins and the Chiefs are in. Simple as that."

SB Nation Philly 9 (11): "Got themselves a road win against the Rams, which sets them up very nicely to get a playoff game at home."

SB Nation Arizona 10 (11): "Kansas City being able to play all the teams in the NFC West is tantamount to having your name drawn by a billionaire in the office Secret Santa."

Pro Football Talk 12 (16): "For a change, the Governor’s Cup was full of something other than satisfaction."

WEEI 12 (14): "The Chiefs control their own destiny. If they win their remaining two games against the Titans and Raiders; they will take the AFC West for the first time since 2003."
