NFL Power Rankings: Where do the Chiefs Rank Following Sunday's Victory Over Denver?

Here’s a look at the latest NFL power rankings from around the web

The Kansas City Chiefs won their fourth-straight game on Sunday with a dominant performance against the rival Denver Broncos, and once again, the national pundits took notice as reflected in the various "NFL power rankings" from around the web.

Kansas City checked in at No. 5 in's rankings, trailing only the Baltimore Ravens, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.

Here's what analyst Dan Hanzus had to say about Kansas City:

"The Chiefs look like a team ready to make a run. Sunday's 23-3 win over the Broncos appears workmanlike on the surface, but a closer examination shows a Kansas City team humming on both sides of the ball. The steady snowfall did little to slow down Patrick Mahomes, who threw for 340 yards and two touchdowns, both to Tyreek Hill. The defense was even better."

Elsewhere, Bleacher Report has the Chiefs all the way up at No. 2 in their rankings behind only Baltimore.

Bleacher Report's analysis of the Chiefs was simple enough:

"The Kansas City Chiefs are hitting their stride at the right time."
