The Daly Dose NFL AFC West Preview 

The AFC West is a division with a rich history.

This group has been to 16 Super Bowls and has won seven of them.

Sure, the Chargers haven’t contributed a win, and the Chiefs haven’t won anything significant since the colonies declared their independence.

This division still has an impressive past.

You just might have to look in a history book to find most of it.

AFC West

1. Denver Broncos   

Predicted finish: 11-5   

The Broncos surprised nearly everyone by winning Super Bowl 50 behind one of the nastiest defenses in recent history. This year there are questions about their offense as Peyton Manning has now retired.  So now everyone is wondering if the Broncos can find someone else to flutter balls into the ground and throw pick sixes. Stay tuned.

2. Kansas City Chiefs   

Predicted finish: 10-6   

The Chiefs are a team that could challenge Denver behind a solid defense and a ball control offense. But be honest, can you imagine a world that in which QB Alex Smith wins a Super Bowl? Or a world where Andy Reid doesn’t just continually botch games in the final minutes? I think we all know the answer to both is a resounding “no”.

4. Oakland Raiders   

Predicted finish: 8-8

Oakland began showing signs of life in 2015, going 7-9, and fans are hoping for a playoff berth or even a trip to the Super Bowl this year. Of course, most of those same fans dress up like Ewoks and Darth Vader for Raider games, so dealing in reality might not be their strong suit.

4. San Diego Chargers   

Predicted finish: 7-9

The Chargers were a disappointing 4-12 last year and they were swept in the AFC division. They should be better this year, because they are pretty much incapable of being any worse. And to be fair, the team may have struggled because of the shadow of a possible move to Los Angeles. Good thing they will never have to worry about that again.
