As the dust has settled following the Kansas City Chiefs' 19-17 loss last Sunday to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the experts have come out with their latest power rankings.

Despite the loss, most of the experts still believe the Chiefs, who sit at 7-3, are one of the eight best teams in the league right now. There are currently only two teams in the AFC with more wins (New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders), and each of them has eight wins.

After coming in at No. 3 last week, the Chiefs come in at No. 7 this week on NFL media analyst Elliott Harrison of NFL.com's latest power rankings.

Here's what Harrison had to say about the Chiefs' ranking:

"It started with a collective uh-oh at the news of Marcus Peters not playing. Peters is the frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year, especially after forcing that fumble to set up the game-winning kick at Carolina in Week 10. You don't want your top corner out against Mike Evans, who sees more footballs thrown his way than anyone else in the game today. Of course, Alex Smith's fourth-quarter end-zone interception was even costlier than Evans' production on Sunday…"

To round out the AFC West, the Oakland Raiders come in at No. 4, the Denver Broncos at No. 6 and the San Diego Chargers at No. 20.

Here's a look at where the Chiefs rank on some of the other power rankings around the internet:

CBS Sports – No. 8
Bleacher Report – No. 8
ESPN – No. 7
Yahoo Sports – No. 6
