NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Why hello there, Denver!

New, comments

The AFC West has three teams in the Top 5 and the AFC in general is once again the dominant conference in the NFL.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos launch themselves into the top three this week. I couldn’t quite put them above the Kansas City Chiefs just for the simple fact that it was incredibly impressive to go into Foxboro and put the whooping on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

Rest easy, though, the Chiefs always find a way to choke away a good season. The Oakland Raiders have a suspect defense, which makes them beatable if their offense gets shut down.

Still, the AFC completely dominates the top ten with seven teams making the cut.
