NFL Standings, Week 1: AFC West

Here are the results through Week 1 of the 2012 NFL regular season in the AFC West.

Denver Broncos: 1-0
San Diego Chargers: 1-0
Kansas City Chiefs: 0-1
Oakland Raiders: 0-1

The San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders played the only intradivision matchup in the AFC West in Week 1. It was a pretty ugly affair, but San Diego won by capitalizing on special teams blunders by the Raiders and converting them into crucial field goals. Phillip Rivers game-managed pretty well, throwing a touchdown pass, and the Chargers defense held down the Raiders offense for most of the game.

Peyton Manning debuted for the Denver Broncos, and he ended up beating the Pittsburgh Steelers with an efficient and excellent performance. Manning completed 73% of his passes and threw two second half touchdowns, and Tracy Porter managed a crucial pick-six to clinch the game for the Broncos.

The Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Atlanta Falcons at home after getting torched for 40 points and nearly 400 total yards. Three Kansas City turnovers also sabotaged any hopes at victory.
