NFL Standings, Week 4: Broncos trail Chargers by 1 game in AFC West

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Broncos moved into second place in the AFC West on Sunday with a win over the Raiders.

With a thorough destruction of the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, the Denver Broncos moved into sole possession of second place in the AFC West after four weeks of action.

At 2-2 overall, the Broncos currently sit one game behind the 3-1 San Diego Chargers, while the Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs are both tied at 1-3. Easily the highest-scoring team in the conference after four games with a 28.5 average, the Broncos have now outscored opponents by exactly 31 points this season after Sunday's blowout win.

Although Denver picked up a timely victory in Week 4, a daunting slate of games still lies ahead on the schedule for John Fox's team. After a Sunday date in Foxboro with the Patriots in Week 5, the Broncos will face off against San Diego, New Orleans and Cincinnati over a three-game stretch that could prove pivotal. The rival Chargers will also face a stout test in Week 5 themselves with a trip to New Orleans looming large, a scenario that just might offer the Broncos a chance to claim a share of first place in the division.
