ESPN Power Rankings: Chiefs Crack Top 5

The Kansas City Chiefs are 4-0 for the first time since 2003 and the national media who so often like to look past the team from the Midwest is forced to stand up and take notice. While the Chiefs still won’t get as much play on Sportscenter or NFLAM as some of the other “higher profile” 4-0 teams like the Peyton Manning led Denver Broncos, the Tom Brady led New England Patriots or the Drew Brees led New Orleans Saints, the fact that, thus far in the 2013 season the Chiefs have managed to keep pace with the NFL “big dogs” can’t go without mentioning.

One of the ways the Chiefs are being talked about is weekly NFL Power Rankings. Several sporting networks and sites like to rank each team from 1 to 32 and talk about why they’re at the spot they’re at. You can find the major Power Rankings at NFL.com, CBSSports.com and even our own Fansided Network. However, the rankings I like to look at the ESPN Power Rankings.

Every week on AA Radio, Arrowhead Addict Editor Andrew Kulha and I break down these rankings at the end of the show. If you want to watch past episodes, please check out the AA Radio tab at the top of the page.

However, since this is the first week the Chiefs (who started out at #24 in the post-draft edition of these rankings) are now #5. Of course, the other four undefeated teams are 1-4 (Denver, Seattle, New Orleans and New England respectively) but that’s okay. For a team that spent nearly the entire season last year at #32, it’s nice to see that even the “professionals” have to admit that 4-0 isn’t a fluke.

I’m happy the Chiefs are in the top five, but I think they should be at #4. I’m not convinced that the Patriots are better than them. I get it, it’s Tom Brady and Bill Belicheck, but still, they’re not as “Patriot-like” as they’ve always been. But, what do I know?

While it’s relatively certain that another Chiefs win this week, combined with a loss by any of the other four unbeaten will move the Chiefs even higher, we can only sit back and wait.

For the record, Andrew called a top five spot last week on AA Radio. We’ll see what he has to say about it this week when we record the next episode. I’m sure he’ll be plenty pleased with himself. Who can blame him? When the Chiefs are winning it’s good for business and it’s fun to watch football again. Even the guys at ESPN will agree with that.

What do you think, Addicts? Do you agree with the order of the Power Rankings? Sound off below. As always, thanks for reading and GO CHIEFS!!!

    That’s right….Top 5!

  • Michael Shaw

    “Do you agree with the order of the Power Rankings?” To be honest, we haven’t faced a defense yet that is almost slightly comparable to our defense…………..until this weekend. The Titans are good defensively and unfortunately Locker isn’t starting, Fitzpatrick is and we all know what he did to us two years in a row up in Buffalo, so I am a bit concerned about this game. IF we stay pat and win Sunday at Tennessee, then I say we should be above the Pats as I also don’t think they are that much better than us!!! This would be a GREAT time for Dallas to get their shit together and win this week!!!!!!!! GO CHIEFS!!!!

    • Troy Utt

      Michael, While I agree that we have not yet faced a “D” as stringent as that fielded by our beloved Chiefs. I have argued all day we are every bit as good or better as NE. Looking back the last few weeks at their opponents, the scores, & even Bradys reaction when things didn’t go well in close games vs opponents they should have blown out based on reputation alone made my argument easy! Besides I guess waiting one more week, provided our boys take care of business makes it all worth while, and that much easier a point to make, as after this weekend there should be at least one less unbeaten team…

    • superman_25_58

      Fitz isn’t playing the same old Chiefs and he will find this out when he is picking his butt up off the ground all day long.

  • mattU

    In short. No, KC doesn’t deserve to be #5 in Power Rankings. We’ve beaten no team in the top 15, and 3 teams in the bottom 6.

    Last year Arizona started out 4-0…So let’s not get ahead of ourselves touting the 4-0 record. 4-0 means little to me considering the competition we’ve faced has a 3-13 combined record. People can say what they want about “every win counts”…Well technically it’s true, but I don’t think you hang your hat on wins against Jacksonville and this year’s NFC East. I’m going off what I’ve seen, and that is a defense that’s shown
    it can be dominant, but an offense that has been underwhelming against some suspect defenses (Jacksonville [2nd half], Dallas [Crybaby Rivers just shredded them], Eagles, and Giants [until their D gave up in 4th Qtr]).

    If we beat Tennessee, Oakland, and Houston, I’ll be ready to jump in head-first touting the Chiefs as an elite top 5 team in the NFL, but coming off a horrendous 2-14 season, the water still looks too shallow for me right now.

    • Brody Hall

      Man were not just beating these teams… we are owning them! And the teams you point out?? TEN… locker is out, OAK… LMFAO, HOU… I can understand that. We deserve where we are at, even the #4 spot.

      • mattU

        We are not owning teams. We beat Dallas by 1 at home. Eagles and Giants were both close games until the long drives the offense put together in the 4th quarter. Jags…it’s not like any team that’s played them has had any trouble. My point with TEN, OAK, and HOU was that I’d be on board with thinking this team is elite (top 5) if we can stay undefeated through that stretch. TEN has a good defense…I’d really like to see what our Offense can do against them. If we beat HOU then I’d say we’re a top 5 team.

        • jnutssackmonster

          Bandwagon… gtfo

        • superman_25_58

          Dallas doesn’t have a high flying offense as well as a shut down D? We play Philly’s high flying offense that was scoring 30+ ppg and shut them down. We also played Dallas power offense and held them to 16 points as well than they turn around the next week and put up 30+. I like our chances against these other teams besides maybe Houston other than them I don’t believe all the other teams on this schedule before Denver have a good enough offense to beat the Chiefs IMO.

    • Davé

      How can you watch this Defense and not feel comfortable is beyond me. Our offense is only getting better and they don’t even have to.

      • mattU

        I don’t know how you feel comfortable with the offensive production. The teams we’ve played do not have good defenses (JAC, PHI, and NYG all giving up more than 30 points/gm).
        Our offensive unit is producing 20 points per game on average, and that’s with one of the best average starting field positions in the league.

        I’m comfortable with our Defense, but the offense is going to have to improve if this team is going to be a serious playoff contender (as #5 power ranking suggests).

        • Stacy D. Smith

          You have to take game situations into consideration. In most cases, Kansas City has been protecting a lead (which typically works out to conservative playcalling). Would I like to see more offensive production? Absolutely. Let’s have some perspective though.

    • Stacy D. Smith

      In the four games Arizona won in 2012, two of them came against teams that would eventually make the post-season. The other two were against bad Eagles and Dolphins teams. I’d venture to guess the same will be true of Kansas City. Between the ‘Boys and Eagles, one of them will win the NFC East and be a playoff team. The other should at least be in the hunt for a wildcard. The other two wins will be against bad Giants and Jaguars teams. Being 4-0 is impressive no matter who you play. Teams lose to bad teams every week. Can’t penalize the Chiefs for the way the first quarter of the season shook out on their schedule. They can only play who they’re scheduled to play.

      • mattU

        I can’t argue that the Chiefs are 4-0 and that the mark is impressive. I also can’t argue that none of the other unbeaten teams (except the Saints over Miami) has beaten a team with a winning record, but come on man. Look at the competition subjectively. The Seahawks demolished San Fransisco at home and beat Houston on the road…both teams better than anyone we’ve faced. Denver has blown out every team they’ve played, and Baltimore is just as good as Dallas in my opinion. Denver offense put up 45 points on the Eagles and KC’s 19, while the Eagles only scored 4 more points against Denver than they did KC. The Patriots are a team I agree with you on…they need to prove themselves over the next 2-3 weeks (against quality competition) just like KC does. We’ll all have a better idea how good the Chiefs are in 3 weeks.

        • Stacy D. Smith

          Only if you’re judging Houston and San Francisco based on who they were last year. Neither teams appears to be the same. To assume they’re the same is a mistake. Are the Chiefs the same team from a year ago?

          Thus far, the Chiefs have had the league’s softest schedule, but guess who’s right behind them? Denver (2nd-easiest), New England (3rd-easiest), and Seattle (4th-easiest). You’d have to cherry pick to discount Chiefs wins and not those of the other teams (many of whom have had common opponents).

          • mattU

            The Chiefs have had a complete coaching overhaul, changed schemes on both sides of the ball, and brought in a competent QB…So it’s not really an apples to apples comparison there when know QB and coaching were the biggest problems with last year’s team. Houston and San Fransisco were both very good last year, and their schemes/coaching/personnel have largely stayed in tact. SF is dealing with some significant injuries, but they are still a talented, well-coached team. Houston would be 3-1 right now with a win over Seattle if Matt Schaub doesn’t decide to float a pass into the flat for grabs.

            It’s really pointless to be arguing to this length so early in the season anyway…I just stated I don’t think it’s time to put the Chiefs into the elite (top 5) category after a 4-0 start against sub-par competition. I want to see a bigger sample size before putting them up on a pedestal like that. Sometimes cautious optimism is a good approach when your team hasn’t won a playoff game in 20 years :)

          • Stacy D. Smith

            If quality of opponent is the line you’re drawing in the sand, that argument doesn’t hold water. Every undefeated team has played poor teams to this point in the season.

          • BigGil

            I think Baltimore has had too much overturn (permanently gone players) and key injuries (Pitta and Jacoby Jones) to be considered quite on par with Dallas. As for Houston, Schaub looks like he’s regressing. Their D still looks good, but it is a bit disconcerting that SEA played three inexperienced OL against them and still didn’t get their ass handed to them (which probably definitely would’ve happened against the last two year’s Texans D). San Francisco? Kaepernick may have been figured out… unless your D’s secondary just isn’t up to snuff (GB), they have to get Gore and the running game going before Kaep can do shit. Plus something I’d just not clicking on their D quite yet, but I can’t quite figure out what (D too tired when Kaep and Gore can’t get anything going on offense, maybe?).

            Point is, all five teams’ schedules have left a little something to be desired yet, so far. Speaking just on these five teams… I’d put KC ahead of NE just based on performances in the first four games. Putting them ahead of the other three is a tougher sell. But I’d sooner put SEA & NO ahead of KC than DEN (for reasons stated in my solo comment rant).

      • BigGil

        I think that’s the point. The Cards started out 4-0 last year, beating two eventual playoff teams in the process… they then went on to have a massive losing streak… it happens. I personally don’t think it will happen for the Chiefs. But it is an ever present possibility. If they don’t let their early success go to their heads, then the odds of the same thing happening to them greatly decreases. On the plus side in that regard, I don’t think Andy Reid will let that happen.

    • Daniel Alvarado

      smh

      • mattU

        Forgive me for being cautiously optimistic about a team that went 2-14 last season. I’m as die-hard a Chiefs fan as most people here, I’m just trying to stay realistic. Do I think it’s likely we’ll make the playoffs? Yes. I just don’t think the Chiefs are in the top 5 best teams in the league right now. Top 10? Definitely yes.

        • Daniel Alvarado

          i just dont see why u dont think their a top 5 team just because they were 2-14 team last year… Teams do have turnarounds like this…that just means that you think our first 4 games were a fluke..so whats the next three gonna prove to you? your gonna say that tenn didnt have their starting qb thats why we won…Raiders their a bad team thats why we won…Houston they’re just trying to find new ways to loose being ahead

          • BigGil

            That kinda turnaround (worst record one year to elite team the next) is by no means common. Indy just went from 1-15 to 11-5, this is true. Were they considered elite? No.

            And why should mattU being cautiously optimistic necessarily mean that he thinks the first four games were a fluke? We’ve seen shades of what most of these defensive players could do in the past, but it was always for only a game or two a season. They didn’t consistently show up together and play to the height of their ability at the same time. They have so far this year and it’s good to see, and it’d be even better to continue to see them keep it consistent like they have so far (but not in past seasons).

            When I watch this year, I see the defense keeping up their consistency of playing at a high level. I see progress in the special teams cleaning up on their small errors. I see the offense improving each week as more time passes and they gel more and more. If they continue doing these things, they can very much be an elite team.

            HOWEVER, it shouldn’t be that difficult to understand why a fan that’s been disappointed in the past wants to keep him/herself guarded for a few more games to be sure that the defense is still playing consistent and the ST/Offense are still improving before pushing their chips all in on “we’re elite”.

            This goes for everyone in this discussion thread.

            You know what the difference is between KC and the other four undefeated teams? This isn’t the first time the other teams have been in the “elite” discussion. They already had a pre-existing positive track record (except the Saints last year, but were without Sean Payton or a defense performing as admirably as theirs has this year). The Patriots look the weakest compared to previous seasons, but, then, for all they lost on offense, their defense looks a little stronger.

            Ease up. While all signs are currently pointing to our Chiefs getting there, we shouldn’t get too cocky… we’re not Miami fans here…

          • mattU

            Thank you for backing me up on this. I feel like I’m taking crazy pills here being the only one who hasn’t thrown the Chiefs in the “elite” category after 4 weeks of play, coming off a 2-14 season. Elite (top 5) teams are super bowl contenders. I see the Chiefs as a playoff team (like the Colts last year), but I don’t think they’re far enough along to be considered super bowl contenders. There’s only 3 teams all time (1980 49ers, 1998 Rams, 2000 Patriots) that went from below .500 record one year to win the super bowl the next…None of them had fewer than 4 wins, and all had one thing in common: a Hall of Fame QB taking over the reigns.

        • superman_25_58

          What other 5 teams would you put ahead of the Chiefs?

          • mattU

            Here’s how I’d rank top half of the league right now. Chiefs are #7.

            1. Broncos
            2. Saints
            3. Seahawks
            4. Patriots
            5. Colts
            6. Texans
            7. Chiefs
            8. Lions
            9. Bears
            10. 49ers
            11. Packers
            12. Falcons
            13. Bengals
            14. Dolphins
            15. Ravens
            16. Cowboys

          • Daniel Alvarado

            i rest my case

    • jacati

      So what you are also saying is that the broncos don’t deserve to be in the top 5 either. The defenses they’ve faced were ranked 16, 22, 26 and 32nd. The funny thing is that both have played similar teams and the Chiefs are ranked 9th in overall defense and 3rd in pass defense while the Boncos are Ranked 17th overall and 29th in pass defense. As far as our offense being underwhelming The Chiefs have a lot of new pieces on offense and, believe it or not, it takes time for everybody to gel. Won’t hurt getting the tight ends healthy either, although McGrath is doing an outstanding job as an replacement. Long story short, you should probably get yourself some waders because the water is getting a whole lot deeper. War Chiefs…….

  • Jarad

    Its an awesome year so far!! I love being able to watch espn and NFL Network throughout the week. I believe KC should be towards the top in these rankings, but there are few things that need to be worked on. The offensive line has been disappointing to say the least. And also, the special teams is suppose to be a strength. It has been great in some areas, but the blocks are something of concern. Hopefully the protection on O and special teams improves quickly. As well as the run blocking. Charles getting 5-8 1st half carries for 15-20 yards wont cut it. GO CHIEFS!!!!

  • Justin R Groth

    Ok OT but I am going to the Raiders game for the second year in a row with my family. Last year we had the wonderful BBQ of Oklahoma Joe’s, this year I want to try Gates but heard they close about noon is this true

    • Lyle Graversen

      I’ve been to Gates on a Sunday after a game before. I don’t remember which location, but I’m sure we Gates last year after one of the games.

      • Justin R Groth

        Thanks Lyle… I did some checking and my step-mum (the person who told me they closed at 12:00pm) was wrong and that they in fact on most nights close at 12:00 a.m. So i will be enjoying Gates and Arthur Bryant’s this year… one more Question though… Is there an Arthur Bryants in the Villiage mall

        • steve james

          I thought they had one of those two in the stadium? I don’t recall from the last time I went:(

        • Danny W

          Gates is good food but I don’t care for the whole yelling thing as soon as you walk in the door. I don’t care for the line and the hassle. Let me sit down, have a waiter come by and take my order and fill my drink repeatedly for my liking. Food is great service is embarrassing there. IMO

          • Davé

            Its so worth it Danny

    • HerbanLegend

      In my mind there’s nothing like Gates on game day. I would stab an innocent person for a stop at the Gates near Arrowhead before a raider game in the sea of red. As a diehard Chiefs fan in Denver even the thought of those two things makes me sick to come back to KC.

      • Davé

        You tell the truth. As a now displaced Chiefs fan in California I come back to Kansas for two things: Watch Chiefs games and Eat the Pork Sandwich at Gates. I swear I look forward to both about the same.

    • Davé

      Gates pork on a half is the best f’n BBQ in the nation. Arthur Bryants for Ribs and Oklahoma Joes doesn’t compete in any way except when it comes to potatoes. TBH I feel that Okalhoma Joes and Jack Stack are only in existence so white people can feel comfortable eating BBQ. BTW before anyone assumes any thing, I am indeed a white dude.

      • berttheclock

        Sort of interesting this discussion on BBQ as KC is going to play the Titans in Tennessee. Had Henry Perry of Tennessee not moved to KC in the early years of the last century, who would even know about Gates and Bryant’s BBQ? I only wish I could have convinced my wonderful Aunt that it was safe to go into the neighborhood surrounding Bryant’s. She really missed a treat.

        But, hey, Dave, should you ever come north to Portland, be sure to try Podnah’s Pit. Owned by a Texan, who makes three great sauces from North Carolina. His peppery and vinegar sauce from the Eastern part goes great with pulled pork. His Western mountain part sauce is made from molasses and tomatoes, ala Memphis and the great KC sauces and is really good with brisket and chicken. He, also, makes a mustard sauce from South Carolina and the southern part of NC. I don’t know if he ships nationwide, but, his products are sold in the local market chain of New Seasons Market.

        • Davé

          BBQ convo is worthy of any and all message boards. Thanks for the tip brother I will certainly come up there for the sole reason of trying this place you believe in. I got some vacation coming up and seeing as how the national parks are closed because the tea party is bane of human existence I might just roll a little further north.

  • BigGil

    I know I should probably be commenting on the Chiefs place in these things, but I’m gonna ignore that for the time being and say: they put Denver #1? Really??? While it can’t be ignored that Peyton & their offense is killing it, they’re killing it against teams with pretty terrible defenses (and I’m including Baltimore in that considering that their defense couldn’t seem to get their heads out of their asses until Week 3, and are still pretty suspect after Week 4). The best defense they played thus far (that has been consistently decent all season) was Oakland’s (even playing better than people expected, they’re still a middle of the pack defense). That also happened to be their lowest scoring game. Denver’s own defense ranks in the bottom half of the league (if not the bottom ten or eight) in pretty much every significant defensive statistic (with the exception of being ranked #1 in run yards allowed pet game). But as to that one #1 defensive ranking, they got that by their offense running up the score such that any hope their opponents had was to pretty much abandon the run game and pass, pass, pass. Even knowing that the passes are coming they do a pretty average job of stopping it. They’re letting poor offenses put up respectable numbers despite this, for Pete’s sake. I’d like to see how they fare playing a team with a top defense and middle of the pack offense, or even a team that’s middling in both categories. Maybe things will look different when they get Von and Champ back, but for now, I don’t see them quite as a team worthy of the #1 ranking. I think that currently goes to the Seahawks or even the Saints (who are looking greatly improved on D and looked pretty convincingly worthy of the #1 overall ranking last night).

    Rant over

    • BigGil

      Btw, my rant against their D doesn’t include their ST. I have to concede that they have a top unit there. F@$&ing Trindon Holliday… If on any other team but the Broncos, the speedy little squirt might be a favorite non-Chief of mine…

    • Davé

      Von Miller won’t be a dominant post STEROIDS. Champ Bailey is old and washed up. Any good receiver will own that side of the field.

  • http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/community/profile/index.jsp?ipid=14872822'defer='defer' defer='defer upperturion

    Top 5 — say what!! Now you know we’ll lay an egg this week. While I’m not seeing the big mistakes of the previous yr, I saw Smith miss potential Td throws to Bowe at least twice against NY. Yes Alex was under pressure; but it’s time to stretch the field in a big way and stop playing paddy-cakes for gawds sake! Stacking the box against Charles is an opportunity, man…

    A win this week will tell me more about this team than any of the previous 4……………………

    • berttheclock

      What will be needed this Sunday is to stop the pass rush of the Titans so Alex has time to throw. In the first four games, they have brought 5 guys on 45 per cent of their defensive plays.

  • Jim Harper

    I always find it interesting when guys come on here to shower us with their wisdom about our Chiefs. The truth is that power rankings this time of year mean very little. We are only a quarter of the way through the season. We will have a much better feel for that when we reach the halfway point. With that being said I could not be happier with how our Chiefs are playing and they are even getting respect around the league. I am retired and normally spend my day watching the NFL network or ESPN, and I can report that all the talking heads are proclaiming the Chiefs to be legit. I do think after the Patriots loss of Wilfork for the year it hurt them considerably. I will say that it really gets my goat that people still want to critics of the Chiefs thus far. Yes there are areas of improvement that need to be addressed, but my best guess is that Reid has it under control. Instead of complaining about what they are doing wrong, I would much rather just enjoy what these guys are doing.

    • Troy Utt

      That’s kind of been my point… Despite my occasional trip to the soap box or rant as you stated “when something gets my goat”, I prefer to focus on what the TEAM is doing & look at it as a whole.. I acknowledge supuerior the job our “D” is doing, & what our special teams has accomplished, but also realize that without the leaps our offense has made (continues to make), none of this is possible as it is a team effort. I honestly believe getting our TE’s back on the field is going to help the offense.
      I must be honest I looked at the power rankings & argued them today, and there is no denying that the Donkey’s have put together a great team this year. That said they are not unbeatable… and I believe KC’s can stop them! By week 10 I believe we will have gelled on offense & be clicking on all cylinders. I am truely looking forward to the next few weeks! WAR CHIEFS!!!

      • Jim Harper

        Well put Troy. In truth by the time week 11 rolls around lots of things can change. We have been fortunate so far that the Chiefs injuries have for the most part been minimal. Denver has not been as fortunate. Also all the talking heads are hailing Denver as this unbeatable behemoth when in truth they have not played a top defense either. Manning has shown over the years that the way to beat him is with pressure, which is why he has not performed well in the playoffs. He certainly has not faced anything like what KC will show him.

        • Troy Utt

          I did not read your message until this morning, at which point I had already seen the Chiefs weekly injury update. They are reporting “14″ w/ 12 that did not practice…
          Those numbers are starting to bother me a little? Any word on Fasano or Kelce?

          • Jim Harper

            Good morning Troy! I just read the injury report and I am not sure about it, although the numbers do seem high. Jamaal’s problem is foot blisters and most of the others were either limited or full practice. I have not heard anything in regards to either Fasano or Kelce. Hopefully most are ready to go by Sunday.

  • Danny W

    I don’t disagree on five or even four for that matter. I think on any given Sunday we could beat any team right now. That said on any given Sunday I think Indi, Tennessee, Cinci, San Diego, and possibly Miami could jump up and get us in a game. The great thing is though I don’t count us out of any game yet thanks to this for REAL defense, and special teams.

  • Davé

    Power rankings mean little right now. Even being 4-0 I do not think we are getting enough attention. 80% of the time most every media outlet is talking about Peyton Manning which is beyond annoying. I am not one to generally hope someone gets injured but I would not be disappointed in the least to watch ESPN or listen to NFL Sirius radio and not hear is name again. Let’s all be honest, Peyton has not faced a single defense that is worth anything. Even Baltimore dropped a game to EJ Manuel and the Bills. Not saying we could beat him, but someone should speak about the level of competition they have faced to date. I think we are certainly a better team than the Pats. Woohoo they beat Atlanta who just happens to be a 1-3 team now. As if them losing to Miami was not any indication that could also lose to the 3-0 Patriots. Why isn’t anyone talking about how awesome our defense is right now. Here are the games we have played so far : Jacksonville 0 points. Dallas a 30 ppg team: 16 points. Eagles a 30 ppg team: 16 points. Giants: 7 points only because Flowers was inactive. You think Peyton is going to mystically drop 40 points on this defense? You think Brady and his rook receivers match up against our secondary? You honestly think that New Orleans whose first team offense did shit against our first team defense in the preseason will somehow score at will against the Chiefs? Truth is we are a hard out for any and all teams in the NFL. I even believe we would beat Seattle quite convincingly. No we are not featuring one of the elite QBs, no we are not putting up 40 ppg. But guess what we will beat you anyway.

    Chiefs getting some respect in the national media. Nice!

    sean mcgrath AKA “the beard” in my opinion is doing a helluva job since he’s had to take over as the starting tight end for the team it seem’s he catches everything thrown to him and i wonder if and when fasano and kelce get back where he will be in the lineup i mean you don’t keep production off the field

    Even when the CHIEFS were a regular play off team they got no respect. The only way they will is to keep on winning. If they win 10-12 games they will be seen as ‘becoming’ an elite team. Once they get double win seasons they will get the respect we as CHIEFS fans know they deserve. As always GO CHIEFS!!’
