Kansas City Chiefs: 2013 Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#8)

Last week: 6 (-2)

Record: 8-0

The Chiefs are 8-0, but they haven’t beaten a team ranked higher than 12th on this list and 5 of their 8 wins have come against bottom-10 teams. On top of that, 5 of their wins have come by 10 points or less. They are overrated and could easily lose this week in Buffalo, where two other top-15 teams (Baltimore, Carolina) have lost and two other top-10 teams (Cincinnati, New England) almost lost. Also overrated is Alex Smith, who is 27-5 over the past 3 seasons and apparently gets all the credit for that, even though his defenses have allowed 13.4 points per game in those 32 games. The Chiefs have a great defense and a strong running game, but they won’t be able to get deep into the playoffs.
