It looks like we can’t get any LOVE from the guys over at NFL.com. They released their latest power rankings, which factored in free agency and the draft and they ranked us at the BOTTOM third in the LEAGUE! Of all the teams in the AFC West, we are ranked last.
LAST PLACE IN THE AFC WEST… here we come!
It sure seems like we have more fans in Las Vegas, then we do out on NFL.com. At least they put us as favorites in 12 games during the season.
Now to these power rankings: the Denver Mannings are ranked 10th in the league and best among the AFC West. Everyone and their mama has jumped onto that bandwagon! The Chefs are ranked at 15th and they called them “Denver’s biggest threat.” The Rai-duhs will be battling us for the cellar, ranked at number 20.
Sitting at rank number 21, our San Diego Chargers! Only one way to go from here: UP!
