Kansas City Chiefs: AFC West Preview for Week 3

facebooktwitterreddit

Last week, the Kansas City Chiefs fell to AFC West rival Denver by a score of 24-17. It was a much closer game than everyone thought it would be, and the Chiefs almost pulled out the victory. The Chiefs dropped to 0-2 and desperately need a win this weekend in order to stay in playoff contention.

Let’s take a look at the AFC West standings after week two.

1) Denver Broncos (2-0)

2) San Diego Chargers (1-1)

3) Kansas City Chiefs (0-2)

3) Oakland Raiders (0-2)

The Broncos barely escaped with a win last Sunday and remain at the top of the standings, not just in the AFC West, but in the AFC conference. The Chargers pulled off the upset against the Super Bowl champion Seahawks and looked pretty darn good in the process. The win puts the Chargers into second place in the West. The Chiefs and Raiders sit at the bottom of the division, both failing to win a game so far this season.

Oddly enough, this Sunday’s AFC West games all see the teams on the road in what should prove to be some tough match-ups. Here’s the AFC West schedule for Sunday.

San Diego @ Buffalo, 12:00 kickoff 

Oakland @ New England, 12:00 kickoff

Denver @ Seattle, 3:25 kickoff

Kansas City @ Miami, 3:25 kickoff

San Diego probably has the best chance of a victory this weekend. While Buffalo is 2-0, no one’s really sure what type of team they are yet. The Bills have defeated the Bears in Chicago and the Dolphins in Buffalo, which were both fairly impressive wins. If the Bills take down the Chargers, they might be this year’s Cinderella story in the NFL.

  • A lot of people seem to think that the Raiders are the worst team in the NFL (I might say the Buccaneers are) and they’ve certainly played like it. Derek Carr hasn’t looked awful for being the only starting rookie quarterback this season, but the problem is that he plays for the Raiders. Poor guy. Look for the Patriots to pummel Oakland on Sunday.

    The Seahawks are going to be angry about their loss to the Chargers last weekend, and will hopefully take it out big on the Broncos in what will be a rematch of last season’s Super Bowl. The Seahawks came out victorious in the Super Bowl by a score of 43-8. Denver was shaken up right from the start, so hopefully Seattle’s 12th man will get into Peyton Manning‘s head early on and lead to a Broncos loss.

    As for our beloved Kansas City Chiefs, I could see the team actually going down to Miami and coming out with a win. Even if Jamaal Charles doesn’t play, Alex Smith and Knile Davis have the potential to lead this team down the field and put up a lot of points. I think it’ll be a close game, but I think Kansas City gets their first win of the season on Sunday.
