The AFC West has a three-way tie in first-place after Week 2 of the season. The Chiefs don't appear anywhere close to joining their division mates anytime soon.

After Week 2 of the 2011 NFL season, the AFC West fins itself with a three-way tie for first place. After opening weekend victories by the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers, both teams fell on Sunday. The Denver Broncos sit in the middle of AFC West happenings with a loss to the Raiders in Week 1 and then a 24-22 escape at home over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Kansas City Chiefs, on the other hand, are already in a deep hole with two blowout losses to start the season.

The Chiefs are already down safety Eric Berry and running back Jamaal Charles. Being outscored 89-10 in the first two games (41-7, 48-3) doesn't help matters. ESPN's Adam Schefter does offer the Chiefs some hope with this stat: out of 177 teams to start 0-2, 22 have made the playoffs. It's not a great percentage, but it's still something.

This week, the Broncos visit the Tennessee Titans (2-0); the Chiefs face the Chargers; and the Raiders host the New York Jets (2-0).

AFC West W  L  T  PF  PA  Point Diff.
Oakland Raiders  1 1 0 58 58 0
Denver Broncos  1 1 0 44 45 -1
San Diego Chargers  1 1 0 45 52 -7
Kansas City Chiefs  0 2 0 10 89 -79
