It pays to be KC (terrible at football)

I'm sure someone else has already pointed this out, but as I only visit this site weekly I really wanted to point out the disadvantage of being mediocre every year and finishing 2nd in the AFC West.....

I was watching the Power Rankings unfold on ESPN today and noticed that they had KC at #10. 

The AFC west plays the AFC South in its entirety this year at well as the NFC West.  However, the common divisions this year, shared between AFC West teams would be the respective teams (from last years' standings) from the AFC North and AFC East.

Denver was paired with Baltimore and the N.Y. Jets. These two teams happen to be the best two  teams (arguably) in the conference, while KC will play Cleveland and Buffalo (maybe the two worst in the entire league).

Denver has obviously pissed off the football gods by being given Indy, Tennessee, Baltimore, and the N.Y. Jets in consecutive weeks. All four of these teams should be playoff teams (as should Denver), with 3/4 potentially vying for Super bowl Wins. 

Weeks 7 through 17 give us the potential for 8 wins if we win where we should (I give us L's at KC and OAK).  Keep the faith, and don't get down on Injuries. Way too much doom and gloom lately. 8 beers, a shot of Jameson give me insight!
