After another solid win in Week 3, we take a look at where the Kansas City Chiefs stand in the most recent NFL power rankings. Plus our own rankings.

Another week, another set of NFL power rankings across the country. Now that we’ve had a chance to digest, it’s time to take a look at how the major media sites viewed the Kansas City Chiefs. With the Chiefs being one of just two undefeated teams left in the NFL, you can expect them to be high up there.

Of course, there are those who believe that power rankings are completely useless and just waste everyone’s time. Well, why are you here now then? Sure, power rankings have absolutely no purpose in the NFL. They have zero bearing on the final standings. So what? It’s still fun to see how people believe your team stacks up.

The experts are pretty high on Kansas City right now, and rightfully so. The Chiefs are fresh off of another impressive win this week. We saw the defense really come to life out in LA, despite some brutal heat and a nagging injury bug. That defensive performance should have made an impression in the minds of many analysts.

Let’s see who has the Chiefs where…starting with our own FanSided NFL site:


124. Kansas City is leading the league in penalties, but somehow surviving. How you ask? Kareem Hunt looks like the second coming of Jim Brown.. (3-0). Previous: . Kansas City Chiefs. 2. team

Matt Verderame has the Kansas City Chiefs coming in at the second spot in the FanSided power rankings, but seems to have a little trepidation there. I’m going to disagree that Kareem Hunt has bailed the Chiefs out. He has been a big help, but Kansas City has outplayed all of their opponents so far.

The top spot in Matt Verderame’s poll goes to the Atlanta Falcons. You’ll see a good bit of that until the Falcons lose a game. Atlanta’s high powered offense has a lot of people believing that they are headed back to the Super Bowl this year.

This is likely one of the polls where the Chiefs will hold steady as long as things don’t change. As long as Kansas City and Atlanta both keep winning, I see the edge here sticking with the Falcons. Of course, as we know, power rankings don’t truly matter, so it’s not a big deal.
