Pundit power rankings for Week 3: Chiefs break the top five National pundits took note when the Kansas City Chiefs knocked off the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road for the first time since 1986 White Xavier Williams Jersey , moving the Chiefs up to the third spot in our aggregated power rankings, and dropping the Steelers out of the top 10.Pundit Power Rankings for Week 3Chiefs AFC West Teams Other AFC TeamsHere's what the pundits had to say about the Chiefs this week:ESPN (3rd from 6th)NFL.com (Elliot Harrison - 4th from 11th)SBNation (Rebecca Toback - 3rd from 7th)Sporting News (Vinnie Iyer - 3rd from 8th)Yahoo! Sports (Frank Schwab - 4th from 7th)CBS Sports (Pete Prisco - 3rd from 8th)Among the pundits, NFL.com’s Elliott Harrison gave the Chiefs the biggest boost, bringing them up seven spots from last week.But all of them put the Chiefs at third or fourth in their rankings.The pundits are starting to think the Cincinnati Bengals could be for real.The two polls moved them up at least 10 spots, and their overall position improved by nine.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got some more love, too, showing an overall improvement of nine, with four of the six rankings moving them up double digits.The scribes agree the Texans are headed down, but disagree a lot on how much.They fell 11 spots overall — the biggest drop of the week — ranging from down two spots to down eleven.Now the Chiefs come back to Arrowhead for the home opener against the San Francisco 49ers.We’ll see what the pundits all have to say next Tuesday.Don’t forget!Wednesday on Arrowhead Pride Youth Kareem Hunt Jersey , we’ll start combining what the pundits say with what the number-crunchers say — to give you True Power Rankings! When we started the live update of the Week 10 Pundit Power Rankings on Tuesday morning, the Kansas City Chiefs were in second place.But then the MMQB Power Poll came in.Their fourth-place ranking dropped the Chiefs to third.Then Pete Prisco from CBS Sports decided to leave the Chiefs in fourth, and Kansas City dropped to fourth in the aggregated rankings — a drop of one position — even though they had defeated the Cleveland Browns 37-21 on the road.Pundit Power Rankings for Week 10Chiefs AFC West Teams Other AFC TeamsHere's what the pundits we're tracking said about the Chiefs this week:ESPN (2nd from 2nd)MMQB (4th from 3rd)NFL.com (Elliot Harrison - 3rd from 3rd)SBNation (Rebecca Toback - 4th from 3rd)Sporting News (Vinnie Iyer - 3rd from 4th)Yahoo! Sports (Frank Schwab - 1st from 2nd)CBS Sports (Pete Prisco - 4th from 4th)USA Today (Nate Davis - 4th from 4th)Other power rankings we noticed this week:Jaguars.com (John Oehser — 1st from 2nd) Why not them at No. 1?NJ.com (Joe Giglio — 1st from 2nd) No offense is consistently as good as Kansas City’s right now. Patrick Mahomes is the NFL MVP, and Andy Reid has an answer for every defense thrown at him.NBCSports.com (Scott Bair — 4th from 3rd) Pat Mahomes is great. We get it. That Kareen Hunt kid is pretty gosh darn special, too.Chicago Tribune (Brad Biggs — 3rd from 3rd) The juggernaut has been held under 30 points once all season, and QB Patrick Mahomes has three targets with six or more touchdown catches.ArizonaSports.com (Vince Marotta — 3rd from 4th) Chiefs had five touchdowns on their first six possessions in easy win.Bleeding Green Nation (Brandon Lee Gowton — 2nd from 3rd) KC is rolling inferior opponents like clockwork. Ho hum.Mile High Report (Pete Baron — 1st from 2nd) Congrats to the Chiefs, you are the new “Best Team” in the NFL. I debated putting the Saints up here, but the Chiefs didn’t do anything to warrant being leap frogged. Remember how last year everyone was saying that the Eagles would lose like they always did in the playoffs? Well, that didn’t happen and people keep saying the same thing about the Chiefs. Just use that for a bit of food for thought. I’d love to see a Super Bowl with my #1 and #2 ranked teams [Baron has the Saints #2].In the final analysis Youth Steven Nelson Jersey , it’s not so much about what the Chiefs did this week.It’s about what the New Orleans Saints did — defeating the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Rams 45-35 in New Orleans.The Rams deserved to fall from the top spot.The Saints deserved to rise.Meanwhile, the New England Patriots beat the Green Bay Packers impressively — sorry, I meant to say, “Tom Brady beat Aaron Rodgers impressively” —and that left the Chiefs as the odd team out, having done nothing more exciting than defeating the Browns.I thought Frank Schwab of Yahoo! Sports framed the situation in the proper way: the Saints, the Rams and the Chiefs all have a legitimate argument to be proclaimed the best in the league right now.I’d even go as far to agree with Schwab’s pick; on balance, I think the Chiefs have the most compelling case.But even if you think the Chiefs’ argument is the best one — like a number of pundits who don’t happen to be included in our tabulation — it’s still... you know... arguable.Elsewhere, things pretty much stayed the same.The Houston Texans moved into the Top 10, while the Washington Redskins fell out; those two teams also posted the biggest gain and loss of the week. The Detroit Lions descended into the cellar Youth Travis Kelce Jersey , which allowed the Indianapolis Colts to get a hoof-hold on the edge of the windowsill and climb out.The biggest disagreements among the scribes were about two teams that played each other.ESPN’s poll dropped the Washington Redskins just one spot — and nudged the Atlanta Falcons up only one position — after the 38-14 spanking the Falcons gave the Redksins.Meanwhile, Schwab and NFL.com’s Elliot Harrison gave the Falcons big boosts, while Prisco and Nate Davis of USA Today dropped the Redksins hard.Snark of the weekLots of worthy jibes this week.But I loved this one about the Cardinals from Scott Bair at NBCSports.com:So how will this change when we total up the data from the number-crunchers, and come up with Arrowhead Pride True Power Rankings for Week 10?It’s hard to say, but I feel it in my bones: we’ll have a new team at the the top of the list on Wednesday.Be sure to check it out!
