Chiefs Lead AFC West


The Kansas City Chiefs won their last rode game of the season by knocking off the St. Louis Rams 27-13 in the battle of Missouri.

The win helped the Chiefs maintain their lead in the AFC West. Kansas City now has a one-game lead over the San Diego Chargers with two games to play.

With the Wild Card pretty much out of reach given the records of the NY Jets and Baltimore Ravens, the Chiefs best chance at making the playoffs is to win the AFC West. Their win today made things much easier as they’ll return home to Arrowhead Stadium to close things out against the Titans and Raiders.

We’ll take a look at the updated AFC West standings after the jump.

Chiefs 9-5
Chargers 8-6
Raiders 7-7
Broncos 3-11

The Raiders got a big win over the Tim Tebow lead Denver Broncos today but their toughest games still remain. Oakland will take on the Colts next week and then finish the season in Kansas City. If the Raiders lose vs. the Colts they will be eliminated from the AFC West race.

The Chargers will go on the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals, who got a win today over the Cleveland Browns. They will finish up on the road in Denver.

In my opinion, the Chargers best shot at losing will be next week in Cinci. The Bengals have had a very disappointing season but they play in a tough division and are a bit better than their record would indicate. The Chargers have not played very well on the road and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise if they went to chilly Cincinnati and laid an egg.

For the Chiefs the formula is simple. Win their last two home games and host a playoff game.

What do you think Addicts? Will the Chiefs take care of business and win their last two games?
