Depending on your outlook, Kansas City Chiefs wallpapers can serve as storm clouds or silver linings.
If you’re an optimist, they remind you that despite the biblical swarm of injury bugs, the Chiefs exited 2014 with a winning record. And after embarrassing one Super Bowl rep, they snatched the heart out of the other’s chest.
If you’re a pessimist, the same images remind you that, for all intents and purposes, Kansas City’s season was derailed by the Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans—two bottom-of-the-barrel train wrecks with a combined record of 5 wins and 27 losses.

Regardless, the current regime has rebranded the club’s image and rehabilitated its culture. And while the 2013 squad finished with a better record, it’s safe to say that it wouldn’t have topped the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.
All things considered, the Chiefs are still trending upward.
Conversely, the Denver Broncos are submerged in mystery, the San Diego Chargers lost to Chase Daniel and the Oakland Raiders are owned by a mole rat who makes business decisions at Hooters.
Obviously, the offseason can alter expectations and shift the tide of momentum in any given division. For the first time in a long time, though, the AFC West doesn’t feel like a three-horse race for second place.
