1. Kansas City Chiefs: (12.7 wins) AFC West Champs
The computer didn’t really seem to care that the Chiefs lost to the Rams on Monday. Despite the loss, the Chiefs are still being given the best chance to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

No other team in the AFC is over 15 percent. Week 12: bye.

“I want to mess up the draft,” Carr said Wednesday. “I don’t want the first pick. I want to win all these games. I want everybody to be mad at me for that. That’s what I want to accomplish.”
