Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos can force a tie atop the AFC West standings with a win on Monday Night Football.

Despite the fact that they are under .500, the Denver Broncos are in position to force a tie atop the AFC West standings. Denver enters Monday night's contest with a 2-3 record, trailing the San Diego Chargers (3-2) by one game.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders both continue to lose. Oakland fell 23-20 to the Atlanta Falcons, losing on Matt Bryant's 55 yard field goal to end the game. Bryant's kick sealed Oakland's second consecutive loss, and dropped Oakland's record to 1-4.

Kansas City lost their third straight game, with Brady Quinn filling in for the injured Matt Cassel at quarterback. Quinn completed just 22-of-38 passes for 180 yards, while throwing two interceptions, as Kansas City was blown out, 38-10. With the loss, Kansas City fell to 1-5 on the season.

The losses by the Chiefs and Raiders ensure that the Broncos will remain in second place, regardless of what happens on Monday Night Football against the Chargers. A Denver win would force a tie atop the division with the Chargers, with the Broncos holding the tie-breaker, since they would have a head-to-head win over the Chargers.

A loss to the Chargers, however, would put the Broncos two games behind San Diego, and behind in the tie-breaker.
