NFL Power Rankings, Week 8: ESPN Keeps Broncos At No. 27

ESPN's latest NFL power rankings kept the Denver Broncos in the same place they were in last week: No. 27. Paul Kuharsky isn't buying into Tebow Mania:

Big finish washed away a terrible showing and poured fuel on Tebow-mania.

At least with that explanation, ranking teams like the Seattle Seahawks and the Jacksonville Jaguars is justifiable.

Looking around the rest of the AFC West, the Kansas City Chiefs continue to move up. They are now winners of three straight games and stand at .500 for the season. They check in at No. 21. The San Diego Chargers remain a top 10 team at No. 9, even with a loss to the New York Jets on Sunday. The Oakland Raiders tumble down six spots from No. 9 to No. 15 after their 28-0 loss to the Chiefs.

If the Broncos can pick up a win against the Lions, they should move up another few spots in the power rankings and still stay in the race for the AFC West.
