NFL standings 2012, Week 12: Broncos hold big lead in AFC West

The Denver Broncos are in complete control in the AFC West.

Following a 17-9 victory over the rival Kansas City Chiefs, the Denver Broncos sit in first place and hold a four-game lead in the AFC West.

The Broncos (8-3) are cruising toward another division title. Denver has won six games in a row and can clinch the AFC West title next Sunday with a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. At 1-10, the Chiefs remain in the division cellar. At this point, all Kansas City is playing for is the first pick in next year's NFL Draft.

The San Diego Chargers (4-7) are in second place in the West. San Diego dropped a tough overtime game, 16-13, at home against the Baltimore Ravens Sunday. The Chargers held a 10-point lead with five minutes left in regulation, but Ravens kicker Justin Tucker tied the game with a 38-yard field goal as time expired, and he won it for Baltimore with another 38-yarder with 1:07 remaining in overtime.

The third-place Raiders (3-8) were blown out on the road Sunday, falling at the Cincinnati Bengals, 34-10.
