Predicting every AFC West game

The AFC West has been building its case as the NFL's deepest division for the past couple of seasons, and this might be the year it takes that mantle for good from its NFC counterpart. Greg Bedard has predicted the outcome of every single game of the NFL regular season. Here are his picks for the AFC West.

The AFC West has been building its case as the NFL's deepest division for the past couple of seasons, and this might be the year it takes that mantle for good from its NFC counterpart. The Chiefs and Chargers have battle-tested defenses and quarterbacks that are unfazed by the idea of going toe-to-toe with Peyton Manning down the stretch, and the Raiders are methodically working their way up to respectability with back-to-back promising drafts. Will Gary Kubiak be able to keep the Broncos on top and get Manning in range of another shot at a second Super Bowl ring?

Greg Bedard has predicted the outcome of every single game of the NFL regular season. Below are his picks for the AFC West.
