Rankings will change each week due to personnel changes, injuries and performance on the field, and a team’s ranking in any given week has no impact on where they might rank in weeks to come. Rankings will fluctuate a great deal more the first few weeks of the season as teams seek their levels and schedules balance out. These are PFW’s Power Rankings following Week 5 as teams head into the sixth weekend of regular season games. Rank/Team/Record/The Skinny 1. Chiefs: 5-0 They actually seem to keep getting better2.
