1. Power rankings: No. 15 Kansas City Chiefs

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"The Kansas City Chiefs' reward in ESPN's Power Rankings for beating the St. Louis Rams 34-7 was to drop a spot this week.

The Chiefs are 15th, down from 14 last week. The 4-3 Chiefs were jumped by the 5-3 Pittsburgh Steelers, who won a home game 51-34 against the Indianapolis Colts last Sunday. A lopsided win over the Colts is more impressive than one against the Rams. But should it have vaulted the Steelers over the Chiefs? Maybe, but I'll argue Pittsburgh's win over Indianapolis is not as impressive as what the Chiefs did against the New England Patriots earlier this season in a Monday night game. "    READ MORE…

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"Quarterback Alex Smith missed a season and a half during his time with the San Francisco 49ers because of an injured right shoulder. So an abundance of caution led Smith to get treatment at halftime of last week's game against the St. Louis Rams for what the Kansas City Chiefs are calling a sprained throwing shoulder.

"I've had a history of stuff with my right shoulder," Smith said. "I was a little sore, but I felt good. "    READ MORE…

5. Rex Ryan comes with praise for Tamba Hali

By Adam Teicher - ESPN.com

"Those of us in these parts don't need any encouragement to appreciate Tamba Hali. Beyond the sack numbers -- he's third on the Kansas City Chiefs' all-time list behind Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith -- his blue-collar approach to things makes his style of play easy to like.

That encouragement came Wednesday nonetheless from, of all places, New York Jets coach Rex Ryan in an interview with Kansas City-area media. The Jets play against the Chiefs on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium and it's not unusual for a coach to go overboard with the praise of an upcoming opponent. "    READ MORE…
