POWER RANKINGS

Power Rankings Week 7 | Where do the Chiefs Rank After Monday's Victory?

The Kansas City Chiefs were back in the win column on Monday with an impressive victory over the Buffalo Bills, posting a dominant performance on both sides of the ball. It all helped the Chiefs move to 5-1 on the season and re-claim the top spot in some of the various "NFL power rankings" from around the web.

Kansas City moved back into the No. 1 position in NFL.com's rankings this week following a monster performance from the Chiefs' running game, which again demonstrated that this team can win in a variety of ways.

Here's a portion of what analyst Dan Hanzus had to say about the Chiefs:

"On the eve of the World Series, Andy Reid threw the Bills a nasty changeup. The Chiefs rushed the ball 46 times for 245 yards on Monday, the most yardage for the team on the ground since 2012 and tied for the most single-game rushes in Reid's 22 seasons as head coach."

The folks at Yahoo! Sports agreed with that ranking, slotting Kansas City in their top spot. Analyst Frank Schwab appears impressed with the Chiefs' capabilities on offense.

"The Chiefs, who have the best quarterback in the NFL, bludgeoned the Bills on the ground. And they're adding Le'Veon Bell to the offense. There's a reason this team didn't move out of the No. 1 spot after one loss."

The Ringer and Sports Illustrated also have the Chiefs atop their rankings after Monday's strong performance.

Here's what analyst Mitch Goldich wrote about Kansas City:

"I've felt all along that the Chiefs are the best team, and every team is going to slip up at some point like they did against the Raiders. It was good to see a rebound on Monday night with a dominant game against a good Bills team on a rainy night. I would pick the Chiefs to beat any other team on a neutral field right now and I still expect them to repeat as Super Bowl champs, so they're back to being my No. 1."

Here's where the Chiefs landed in a handful of other rankings from around the web:

ESPN: No. 2

CBS Sports: No. 3
