Baylor Bradac and Matt Geving join me to predict the outcomes of each AFC West game including the Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders.
The Denver Broncos lost another game last week. This time, it was against the Cleveland Browns. Despite it ending up being a close game, another loss just puts a dagger into the hearts of the Broncos. Denver lost 17-16.
Case Keenum threw for 257 yards but threw two interceptions and no touchdowns to go along with them. He recorded the only touchdown for Denver with a quarterback run.
Running back Phillip Lindsay was held to 24 rushing yards on 14 carries. If Lindsay had a better day, I am sure that the Broncos would have come up with a victory.
On Thursday Night Football, the Kansas City Chiefs hosted division rival Los Angeles Chargers in what turned out to be a really good game.
Kansas City led 14-0 after the first quarter, but the Chargers caught up.
The Chiefs scored two more touchdowns to make it 28 points on the day, but Los Angeles came back at the end and scored fifteen points in the fourth quarter, including a two-point conversion to win the game.
Oakland faced the Cincinnati Bengals in week fifteen and fell short of getting the victory. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw for 263 yards and one touchdown pass with zero interceptions. Running back Doug Martin led the Raiders with nine carries for 39 yards on the ground.
Bengals running back Joe Mixon had a nice day on the ground. He ran 27 times for 129 yards and two touchdowns.
With two of the division’s teams heading to the playoffs and the other two staying home in January, here are the current AFC West standings:
Two teams don’t have much to play for. The other two have plenty. Who will win this week?
