Biggest weaknesses for Denver Broncos division rivals in 2022
What are the biggest areas of weakness for Denver Broncos division rivals within the AFC West in 2022? We take a look at each team.
The AFC West is loaded in 2022, and thankfully, the Denver Broncos are no longer on the outside looking in of all the fun.
For the last few seasons, the Kansas City Chiefs have been dominating.
The Las Vegas Raiders have been making more noise than anyone really cares to admit.
The Los Angeles Chargers have one of the best young quarterbacks in the league.
Now, the Denver Broncos have joined the party, six years after winning Super Bowl 50. The acquisition of Russell Wilson has given the Broncos the opportunity to contend for a title, but this Broncos team still has weaknesses.
You might not believe it based on what you’ve heard all offseason, but the rest of the AFC West teams do, too.
What are the top weaknesses for every Denver Broncos division rival in 2022? Let’s take a look.

Los Angeles Chargers: Wide receiver depth
This was actually a bit of a tough decision with the Los Angeles Chargers because I don’t feel like this team did really anything to upgrade its right tackle position.
After the regular season finale last year, the Chargers probably could have gone out and done a little bit more to keep Justin Herbert upright.
He left the matchup against the Raiders with an almost completely green jersey.
Even as weak as the right tackle position is for the Chargers, I don’t think their lack of wide receiver depth can be ignored.
If one of Mike Williams or Keenan Allen goes down, this group is absolutely toast.
The Chargers invested a third-round pick last year in Josh Palmer out of Tennessee, so there’s at least some upside there. Jalen Guyton is not a terrible backup option, but this team’s overall depth at receiver is largely unproven or just not very good.
