Kansas City, the only unbeaten team in the NFL, is now alone atop The Associated Press power rankings.
The Chiefs didn't exactly impress the voters in a 23-13 victory against Buffalo that included two touchdowns from the defense and none from the offense.
Some panelists figure Kansas City's 9-0 record will get a test soon enough — as in the next game. The Chiefs, 2-14 a year ago, go to Denver after this week's bye.
Alex Marvez of Foxsports.com writes that everyone will finally get a good gauge of "how good the Chiefs are" against the Broncos on Nov. 17.
Seattle is second after dropping out of a tie for the top spot with Kansas City, and Denver stayed at No. 3.
