Last week, those in the media writing up NFL power rankings were still skeptical of the Kansas City Chiefs. This week, that skepticism still exists but more and more people are putting the Chiefs in their top ten NFL teams.

I've rounded up a handful of power rankings from around the web to see where the rest of the media thinks the Chiefs stand. Joel will have his SB Nation power rankings up soon.

  • ESPN Power Rankings: 20 (23) "But for the Bucs, they'd be biggest surprise to this point ." Whoops, this was last week's ranking. Waiting for the update. -Chris
  • FoxSports Power Rankings: 10 (22) "I'm keep getting fans on twitter saying they haven't played a good team yet. Sure, that's partially true, but you have to give the Chiefs credit for beating the teams on their schedule. You can't deny they are a much-improved team, especially on the defensive side of the ball."
  • Walter Football Power Rankings: 20 (23)
  • RealGM Power Rankings: 5 (20) "For the 2010 season, our weekly team rankings will be based solely off our Trench Counter formula, which means a completely objective examination,"
  • Pro Football Talk Power Rankings: 10 (12) "Speed, youth, enthusiam, creativity. Playoffs?"

10th or 20th in the NFL? Which are we closer to?
