Pietro's 2013 NFL Season Preview: AFC West
by Pietro DiSante Jr.,posted Aug 28 2013 2:57PM
Peyton Manning. Enough said. I don't know about the AFC West. Part of me thinks it is the worst division in the NFL, but part of thinks maybe the Chiefs and Chargers can get back on track in 2013. We will have to wait and see.
1. Denver Broncos (14-2)
I think the Broncos are the best team in the AFC. I thought that last year too. This year, they might have even less competition though. They added Wes Welker to Peyton Manning's weapons, which should only help the team. I think their defense is good enough to allow the Broncos to get big leads. They started slow too much in 2012. I think that will change this year.
2. San Diego Chargers (8-8)
Not sure how much better Mike McCoy will make the Chargers in 2013, but they should improve. Philip Rivers needs to make less mistakes than he has the past few seasons. They still have a top defense and if they get the offense on track, they can compete for a playoff spot. Not sure if that will happen this year or not though.
3. Kansas City Chiefs (8-8)
The Chiefs are getting all kinds of hype this season. Andy Reid is their new head coach, Alex Smith is their new quarterback, still I am not sure it warrants all this buzz. They will improve for sure, and I still think they have one of the best defenses in the NFL, but I don't think it will be enough to make the playoffs in 2013.
4. Oakland Raiders (4-12)
It might be a tough season in Oakland. Still, they are getting piled on non-stop, so low expectations could become a good thing for them. They may surprise some people.
