Week 5 2017 NFL Power Raknings: Kansas City Chiefs sit alone on top

The Chiefs are at the top, the Browns are at the bottom and there are a lot of questions for everyone in between.

NFL: Washington Redskins at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

It has been an interesting start to the 2017 NFL season.

There is really nothing that makes sense in the NFL right now.

How many teams are actually good? Who is really good? Is anyone outside of the lone undefeated team, the Kansas City Chiefs?

Let’s take a look at this weeks power rankings.

The Undefeated

It wasn’t pretty on Monday Night. Actually, it was beautiful. The Chiefs, missing their entire interior offensive line, beat up a good Washington Redskins defense.

Kansas City Chiefs

Ranking the Single Losses (3-1)

This is, again where you can really put them in any order you want to. I am going by what I have been able to watch week-to-week. There are a lot of teams that look good then bad, there are some teams I just can’t put my finger on yet.

2. Detroit Lions - Should be undefeated if not for some interesting work by the officials.

3. Atlanta Falcons - I know Atlanta beat Detroit. But, they shouldn’t have and then they lost to Buffalo, who I am still ranking behind them.

4. Buffalo Bills

5. Denver Broncos

6. Philadelphia Eagles

7. Pittsburgh Steelers

8. Green Bay Packers - If the Packers get healthy, they are my pick to come out of the NFC.

9. Los Angeles Rams

10. Carolina Panthers

11. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1)

The Mess in the Middle (2-2)

Again, rank these teams in any order and I will listen. I think what the Skins did against the Chiefs last night was the most impressive loss of any team in this group.

12. Washington Redskins

13. New England Patriots

14. Houston Texans

15. Seattle Seahawks

16. Dallas Cowboys

17. New Orleans Saints

18. Tennessee Titans

19. Minnesota Vikings

20. Arizona Cardinals

21. Jacksonville Jaguars

22. Baltimore Ravens

23. Oakland Raiders

24. New York Jets

Still Alive... but Barely (1-3)

The Bengals have a weird, make a run, feeling to them. Maybe because I don’t buy anyone in the AFC North, but they feel like they could be a Wild Card threat. The rest, no way.

25. Cincinnati Bengals

26. Indianapolis Colts

27. Miami Dolphins

28. Chicago Bears

The Battle for the First Pick (0-4)

The Chargers and Giants are going to win football games this year, they have too. Yet, for four weeks, they are among the four worst teams in the NFL.

29. Los Angeles Chargers

30. New York Giants

31. San Francisco 49ers

32. Cleveland Browns
