Predominantly Orange writer Baylor Bradac and I predict the outcome of the Denver Broncos matchup with the Jets as well as the other AFC West matchups.
Week four saw three games which included the AFC West, with the Kansas City Chiefs facing the Denver Broncos in the Mile High City.
The Chiefs, favored to defeat the Broncos by most people (and by a large margin), were successful at getting yet another ‘W’ in the “win” column.
If there is such thing as a moral victory, it’s that the Broncos showed the rest of the league that the Chiefs are, in fact, beatable.
Instead of a blowout loss to Kansas City, the Broncos held the Chiefs to 27 points, their lowest score in the 2018 regular season so far. This is good news for Denver, as the two teams face each other again in four weeks.
The Los Angeles Chargers were able to get the victory against the Jimmy Garoppolo-less San Francisco 49ers by a score of 29-27. CJ Beathard, Garoppolo’s backup, showed up. He played much better than I personally expected, but the end result was still a loss.
Here’s something refreshing (I think) for the league and its fans: the Cleveland Browns are actually decent this year. They finally have a good quarterback, Baker Mayfield, who they drafted first-overall.
The Browns almost defeated the Oakland Raiders but fell just short, by a score of 45-42. If you asked me last year how the Browns would fair in 2018, I would never think that they could score 40 or more points.
But now it’s week five, and it’s time for Baylor Bradac and I to make our AFC West predictions.
