Chiefs Bye Week: AFC West Goes 2-1, Colts Lose


The Kansas City Chiefs remain in first place in the AFC West while the rest of the division went 2-1 on Sunday.

The Chiefs widened their lead on only the Oakland Raiders who fell 31-24 to the Houston Texans.

Gaining some ground on the idle Chiefs were the San Diego Chargers who made quick work of the quarterbackless Arizona Cardinals and the Denver Broncos who used some late-game heroics to take down the Tennessee Titans on the road.

The AFC West standings are now as follows:

Chiefs 3-0

Chargers 2-2

Broncos 2-2

Raiders 1-3

More after the jump.

We are now going into full Indianapolis Colts mode here at AA.

Speaking of the Colts, they fell to 2-2 on Sunday after a surprising road loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars managed to take down their division rivals with a buzzer beating 59-yard field goal by kicker Josh Scobee.

Jaguars 31, Colts 28.

Think Todd Haley, Charlie Weis and Romeo Crennel were watching that one?

For the second time this season the Colts were beaten despite a brilliant day by Peyton Manning and an unremarkable performance by the opposing QB.

As usual Manning put up huge numbers passing for 352 yards and two touchdowns.

On the other side of the ball, Jags QB David Garrard was nothing more than efficient, throwing got 163 yards and 2 touchdowns. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew carried the ball 26 times for 105 yards.

On the road at least, the Colts appear to have some vulnerabilities. If the Chiefs coaching staff can expose those vulnerabilities, KC should have a chance next week.

I didn’t see the Colts game as it was not broadcast in my area. Did any of you see it? How did the Jaguars win with Manning having such a solid performance?
