Everybody’s chasing the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West and the Oakland Raiders have a chance to save their season when they host the conference’s top team in a Thursday Night Football matchup. Week 7 has a pair of division matchups with the Broncos travelling to face the Chargers on Sunday.
The Chiefs were the last team to lose a game this season when they fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday. The league’s highest scoring offense was held in check by Pitt, but the Chiefs still had a chance to pull out a victory, which is a good sign for a team looking for its first back-to-back division titles. Despite the loss, Kansas City improved its odds at claiming the title, moving to -300 as the favorite.
It’s hard to say a game in mid October is a must-win, but that’s what the Raiders are facing. The trendy pick to win the division at the beginning of the year, the Raiders have been a flop with what should be a top offense. Oakland didn’t throw a stash of cash at Derek Carr to have him toss 20 five-yard dump-off passes per game, and the highest-paid offensive line has shown cracks. The Marshawn Lynch signing has yet to pay off, unless the Black Hole is looking for dance lessons. It’s been a mess the last four games and trying to solve the Chiefs, a team the Raiders have lost five straight games to, isn’t going to help.
The Broncos suffered an embarrassing home loss to the Giants and they should bounce back. But they just aren’t as good as people think. When the defense doesn’t do its job, Trevor Siemian isn’t the guy you want trying to mount a comeback. Philip Rivers is the guy you want, and he did it last week as the Chargers won a second straight game to climb out of the cellar and end a horrid skid against divisional foes. Rivers engineered a late drive and this time the kicking game didn’t fail. Nick Novak banged the game-winner to give the Chargers a 17-16 win over the Raiders.

The looming question for the Denver Broncos heading into the 2017 season revolves around the quarterback position. Denver has one of the few true quarterback battles in the NFL that means something. The Broncos won the Super Bowl two seasons ago despite poor quarterback play and won nine games last year even though two inexperienced quarterbacks shared the duties. Whether Paxton Lynch or Trevor Siemian gets the job, the team will be a playoff contender provided that both don’t take a step back. Continue
The clock has officially started on the Alex Smith era in Kansas City. The Chiefs traded up to select Pat Mahomes in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft and it’s only a matter of time before he gets a shot under center. Smith hasn’t been bad during his time in Kansas City, but the Chiefs believe that they need something more if they want to make the next step. They will get just that with Mahomes, who lit up Big 12 defenses with impunity. Continue
The Oakland Raiders were the team that had gone the longest without posting a winning record prior to last year, but it’s funny how fast things change. Oakland has gone from being considered an also-ran to one of the favorites in the AFC after finishing 12-4 under Jack Del Rio. The season ended with a thud after an injury to Derek Carr rendered this team ineffective in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, but there is plenty of hope headlining into 2017. Continue
Whether the city wanted them or not, owner Dean Spanos decided to pick up the San Diego Chargers and move the team to Los Angeles. The Chargers didn’t have a fancy new stadium deal to goad them into moving and will have to play in an MLS stadium out in Carson for the next three seasons. With a capacity of only 27,000, it will be the smallest stadium in the NFL and playing there will relegate the Chargers to second-team status in the City of Angels. Continue
