The Kansas City Chiefs are playing the New York Jets this weekend but they're not the only AFC West game that matters. The Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers are all playing in the Sunday late games so the Chiefs will have a good idea of where they stand in the division by Sunday evening.

Here's a look at the rest of the AFC West in Week 14:

Chicago Bears at Denver Broncos: The Broncos are three-point (or 3.5) favorites in this game so the odds are on Denver to win. The Bears are trotting out Caleb Hanie again so I think you can't feel too comfortable with the Bears potentially winning this game. That said, Tim Tebow and the Broncos are still kind of a wildcard, despite the five-game winning streak.

Oakland Raiders at Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are 12.5 point favorites at some places and at 12-0 I think you'd be crazy to pick them to lose at home. Green Bay should, and probably will, win this game.

Buffalo Bills at San Diego Chargers: The Chargers, who had lost six in a row before last week's victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars, are seven point favorites in this game. I wouldn't feel that confident in the Chargers winning -- they're definitely talented enough to do it -- but the only consistent part of their team this year is their ability to be inconsistent.
