2. Kansas City Chiefs (9-1, Previous: 2)
The Chiefs have been on an amazing run this season, but it’s been against what is widely recognized as the softest schedule in the NFL, with four of their wins coming against backup quarterbacks. The streak came to an abrupt halt against Peyton Manning Sunday night, but Kansas City held up surprisingly well, especially on offense, where Alex Smith broke out of “game management” mode and made some flashy plays, especially with his legs. If a few of those dropped passes had been hauled in, the result could have been different. But it wasn’t. (Getty Photo)
