The AFC West struggled in Week 6, as all three teams in action failed to earn a win with the Oakland Raiders on a bye.
The Kansas City Chiefs began Sunday afternoon by losing, 9-6, to the Baltimore Ravens in a field goal-fest. The Ravens added injury to insult with Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel being forced to leave the contest with an injury.
The Denver Broncos followed Kansas City with a 31-21 loss in a highly-anticipated matchup with the New England Patriots on the road at Gillette Stadium. Tom Brady outdueled Peyton Manning as the Broncos dropped their second loss away from home this season.
In the Sunday night showcase, the San Diego Chargers suffered a 31-24 loss to the previously-winless New Orleans Saints. Despite the Chiefs and Broncos losing, San Diego was unable to take advantage and increase its lead in the AFC West standings.
Currently, the Chargers (3-2) hold a one-game advantage over Denver (2-3), while the Chiefs (1-4) remain tied with the Raiders (1-3) in the win column.
All four teams will be in action next weekend, with the Chargers and Broncos going head-to-head on Monday night.
