These NFL power rankings say it all about the Kansas City Chiefs

The staff over at Mile High Report, SB Nation's Denver Broncos blog, each did a set of power rankings. The Chiefs ranking varied widely.


That one set of power rankings can put the KC Chiefs No. 32 and another one at No. 13 says it all -- about what we don't know -- about the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs. 13th? A little high for my tastes but I'm not arguing. (Note: Adam Caplan also has the Chiefs ranked 13th.) No. 32? Much has changed but, remember, this is still a two-win team.

Check out the full set of power rankings from the staff members of MHR (with a sortable table!). The lowest is No. 32 and the highest is No. 13. The average is 21.8.

I did a Q&A with our San Diego Chargers blog, Bolts From The Blue, that hasn't run yet so I hope they don't mind me quoting myself and giving you a preview to said Q&A about predicting the Chiefs record:

I think you can reasonably put the Chiefs in the category of 6-9 wins. It's not like it's impossible to be better or worse than that range either. New quarterback, new coach, new offense ... we're doing a lot of guessing on how the Chiefs will look, but we really don't know yet. I'm waffling somewhere between 7-9 wins for my prediction. That's a minimum of a five-game improvement year over year, which is significant.
