NFL Power Rankings: Chiefs, Jags share basement

The verdict is in for Week 8 and everyone agrees that the Chiefs and Jaguars are the two worst teams in the NFL.


The latest round of NFL Power Rankings is out across various sites from NFL writers, including SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber, and the results are simply not pretty to look at when it comes to the Chiefs. Rather, I should say that the rankings mirror the on-field product.

For Van Bibber, the very idea that the powers-that-be are employed in Kansas City after the bye is a mystery. He ranks the Chiefs at No. 31 of 32 at SB Nation and writes, "How does Scott Pioli still have a job in the NFL? The good news is the Chiefs did not lose this week while on a bye, or did they, since Clark Hunt didn't fire anyone?"

ESPN has the Chiefs dead last in the NFL, just below the Browns and Jags. Ashley Fox writes, "The Chiefs still haven't led in a game this season. Their one victory came in OT."

CBS is a bit kinder and has the Chiefs at No. 30 with a surprising drop from the Carolina Panthers in at No. 31. The Jags are No. 32. About the Chiefs, Pete Prisco writes, "They come out of their bye as one of the league's biggest disappointments. And it's more than just Matt Cassel. Or Brady Quinn. Or whoever starts at quarterback."

Finally Brian Billick at FOX Sports also has the Chiefs at No. 30 with the Raiders at No. 31. He writes, "Brady Quinn has been named the starter, with Matt Cassel serving as the backup for this Sunday's game against the Raiders. I predict that in no more that two weeks, the fans in KC will be asking for Ricky Stanzi to replace Quinn."

The Chiefs and Jaguars are the common entries at the bottom of the NFL. Do you agree?
