The Kansas City Chiefs were 1-0 at one point in the season. They were a top 10 team in the NFL.

And then they lost four straight games.

The KC Chiefs spot in the 2015 NFL power rankings for Week 5 is lower than it has been in a long time. The Chiefs are clearly not a good team. Sure, they can recover and make the season respectable but based on the past four weeks that doesn't seem likely.

Here's where they stand entering Week 6 ...

SB Nation: 20

Same goes for the Kansas City Chiefs, whose first three losses came to the Broncos, Packers and Bengals -- all teams that are still unbeaten -- but losing to the Bears really sets them back. So does losing Jamaal Charles. Tough times in Kansas City right now.

PFT: 26

Has any season turned more dramatically from the first half of Week Two through the end of Week Five? 25

Not sure any fan base took it on the chin as bad as the Chiefs Kingdom on Sunday. Kansas City has no excuse for losing to the Bears, having held a double-digit lead late in the fourth quarter. Not to mention -- but we'll mention -- that both touchdowns looked like Jay Cutler simply chucked the ball out there, particularly the game-winner to Matt Forte. Also, losing your best football player on top of the loss? Ugh.

Yahoo Sports: 23

Without Jamaal Charles and his ability to hit some home runs in the running game, the Chiefs will have to finally open up the passing game or it'll get ugly. Prediction: It'll get ugly.

CBS Sports: 23

With Jamaal Charles down for the year with a torn ACL, and four consecutive losses, this team is reeling. Can they turn it around?

USA Today: 27

Hard to believe this flawed team can recover from the loss of its best player. Same may go for Andy Reid. #KCBBQed?

ESPN: 19

Four straight losses for the Chiefs, and now Jamaal Charles is done for the season. The Chiefs' last four-game losing streak came in 2012, when the team finished 2-14.
