AFC West Remains A Mystery After Chiefs, Raiders And Chargers Lose

Through nine weeks, we still have no idea who the best team in the AFC West is. For the second consecutive week we have a three-way tie between the Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders at 4-4. It had 22 years since there was a three-way tie between 4-3 team so this is definitely odd.

In Week 9 we saw all three of those teams win which means the Denver Broncos are one game back in the AFC West. (Yes, you read that right.)

The three-way tie will end next week when the Chargers host the Raiders on Thursday Night Football. (Unless the Chargers and Raiders ends in a tie. And the Chiefs. I wouldn't put it past this division.)

Here's the next three up for every team in the AFC West:

Chiefs: Denver, at New England, Pittsburgh.

Raiders: at San Diego, at Minnesota, Chicago.

Chargers: Oakland, at Chicago, Denver.

Broncos: at Kansas City, New York Jets, at San Diego.
