The Broncos were the only team in the AFC West to win this week, picking up their sixth straight win.

The Denver Broncos continue to win and the rest of the AFC West continues to lose as the Broncos strengthen their stranglehold on the AFC West. The Broncos took care of their division rival, the Kansas City Chiefs by the score of 17-9 on Sunday. It dropped the Chiefs to 1-10 and handed them their eighth straight loss. The win moved the Broncos into first place by four games in the AFC West.

The San Diego Chargers are quickly falling off the cliff having lost three straight which includes their 16-13 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens yesterday. In the game, Ray Rice picked up a first down on fourth and 29 to help set up the game tying field goal as time expired.

Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders continue to struggle mightily, having lost four straight after falling to the Cincinnati Bengals 34-10 yesterday. The Raiders defense has allowed less than 20 points just once this year. They'll start a three game home stand against the Cleveland Browns next Sunday.
