With the loss to the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs are now in last place in the AFC West. They're two games out of first place but the Chiefs have shown us over the last three weeks that they may not be interested in being competitive in the division into December.
We looked at the AFC West standings the other day but now that the entire week is complete we'll revisit them. One quick question, though: Who would have thought that the top two teams in the division after 11 weeks would be the Raiders and Broncos?
Oakland Raiders (6-4): Oakland leads the division by one game and they look like the best team in the division right now. Carson Palmer is playing better, the running game is near the top of the league and they're doing it without Darren McFadden. Right now, I'd be surprised if the Raiders didn't win the division.
Denver Broncos (5-5): The Broncos are now 4-1 under Tim Tebow and have games coming up against the Chargers and Vikings so it wouldn't surprise me to see the Broncos keep things competitive late into the season.
Kansas City Chiefs (4-6): Three losses in a row to start the season and now another three-game losing streak. It's looking more and more like the Chiefs simply caught a break in their four-game winning streak and that's not who they really are.
San Diego Chargers (4-6): I thought the rest of the AFC West would be chasing San Diego throughout the season but barring the Chargers running the table or going 5-1 down the stretch, they won't be winning the division.
