NFL rankings: Week 6


It’s almost painful to put together my NFL rankings this week.  The Chiefs suffered yet another humiliating loss and drop even further towards the bottom of the league.  Meanwhile, we’re seeing the best teams in the NFL clearly separate themselves from the rest.  However, there really wasn’t a ton of movement in the rankings this week as nine of the top twelve teams from last week’s NFL rankings remain the same.

More from Kansas City Chiefs News

Our biggest risers this week are the Chicago Bears, who rose not just for winning, but because so many other bad teams lost.  The biggest fallers?  Yeah, you guessed it.  The Chiefs come crashing down six spots to number 25.  The Chiefs and Ravens are the surprise teams at the bottom of the rankings so far this year as everyone else were pretty easy to spot this offseason.

It’s tough to stay excited about Kansas City this year.  No, the season isn’t over.  Yes, it’s still possible they turn it around.  I’m just not expecting it.  But enough of that…on to the rankings!
