Let’s just say it, Justin Houston is much better than the 27th-best player in the NFL.

You believe that unless you helped put together the NFL’s 2015 top 100 list. Numbers 30-21 were released Thursday, and Houston found himself behind two other defensive players — just in that group of 10.

But it wasn’t just Houston who was getting no love, it was the entire team. Sports Illustrated put together a piece that said San Diego has a better shot at dethroning Denver from the top of the AFC West, than Kansas City.

If you came here looking for actual Chiefs’ football news, there is some of that below as well.
