After Week 11 of the NFL season, what do the standings look like in the AFC and AFC West? Where do the KC Chiefs stack up in the conference and division?

The NFL has now completed eleven weeks of the regular season and there will still be a lot of changes to the playoff picture over the final seven weeks. The Kansas City Chiefs are looking good in the AFC, but most teams are still in contention for a playoff spot, while some teams may have already kissed their playoff hopes goodbye.

Week 11 featured five games involving two AFC teams, with four being divisional games, while four members of the AFC lined up against NFC teams, and two teams had their bye week. Nine teams came into the week with a winning record and seven teams came in with losing records.

What were the results of the games this week, and how did the standings change since last week?

Here is how the AFC West standings look after Week 11:


Kansas City Chiefs 8-2


Los Angeles Chargers 5-5


Las Vegas Raiders 3-7


Denver Broncos 3-7

The Las Vegas Raiders earned a walk-off victory in overtime against the Denver Broncos. The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Los Angeles in an exciting game at SoFi Stadium.

According to FiveThirtyEight (QB Adjusted), before Week 11, the Chiefs were the heavy favorites to win the AFC West with a 96% chance to win the division. The Los Angeles Chargers, Denver Broncos, and Las Vegas Raiders followed at 3%, 0.5%, and <0.1%, respectively. After Sunday, the Chiefs are virtual locks as the Chargers, Raiders, and Broncos all have a combined less than 1% chance to win the division.

This week was a huge victory for the Chiefs as they basically locked up the AFC West. The Chargers will fight for a wild card, while the Broncos and Raiders should start booking their January vacations as their playoff dreams are all but dead.
