Kansas City Chiefs: 2013 Week 5 NFL Power Rankings (#7)

Last week: 12 (+5)

Record: 4-0

The Chiefs aren’t in the top-4 with the other 4-0 teams because their opponents have a combined record of 3-13. They’ve faced 3/4s of arguably the worst division in football, the NFC East, along with a Jacksonville team that’s worse than any team since the 2008 Lions and even that’s a debate. They won’t be able to rely on winning the turnover battle every game going forward and in the first game they didn’t win the turnover battle, they were stuck in a tough battle at home with the 0-4 Giants, before a punt return blew the game open. They’re a very solid football team, but all 6 teams ahead of them on this list are greater contenders for the Super Bowl.
