Latest NFL Power Rankings: Where do Chiefs Rank After Monday's Win?

They’re up there

The Kansas City Chiefs (6-2) picked up their fourth-straight win over the Denver Broncos (3-4) after their 29-19 victory Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium.

The win gives the Chiefs a stranglehold on the AFC West Division, because as of now, the Chiefs are the only team within the division that has a winning record.

Things can quickly change in the NFL, but right now the Chiefs are in the driver's seat.

And as is the case every Tuesday morning, the latest NFL Power Rankings have been released.

So, where do the Chiefs rank after Monday's win? Here's a look at a few of the latest rankings

Peter King and the folks at Monday Morning Quarterback have the Chiefs ranked No. 3, trailing only the Philadelphia Eagles (No. 1) and New England Patriots (No. 2).

It's worth noting the Chiefs beat both of those teams.

In fact, all six of the Chiefs' wins this year have come against teams ranked inside the Top 18 of their latest list.

NFL.com has the Chiefs at No. 4 this week. Here's what NFL.com Analyst Elliot Harrisonhad to say:

"The Chiefs stay parked in the cleanup spot after a respectable -- if not overly impressive -- win. On a night when Alex Smith and the offense looked like they had eaten too much barbecue, the defense and special teams stepped forward -- particularly, Justin Houston and Harrison Butker, who has a great name. (First name.) Also notable: The moves from Terrance Mitchell to Kenneth Acker and Phillip Gaines to Steven Nelson. They paid off. Still feel for Mitchell, who has been picked on by some excellent quarterbacks this season: Tom Brady, Carson Wentz, Philip Rivers, Kirk Cousins, Ben Roethlisberger and Derek Carr. So, the struggling Trevor Siemian comes to town and Acker gets the assignment. That sucks."

Pete Prisco of CBS Sports also has the Chiefs at No. 4 this week, trailing the Eagles, Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Here's what Prisco had to say:

"They bounced back in style against the Broncos Monday night to take command of the division race. They face a tough one at Dallas this week."
