The Kansas City Chiefs once looked doomed to finish the season at the bottom of the AFC West. They had been outscored, 89-10, in the first two games and looked completely overmatched. Safety Eric Berry and running back Jamaal Charles were lost for the season with knee injuries. But after a third loss, a division loss to the San Diego Chargers, the Chiefs are riding a three-game win streak with defeats of Minnesota, Indianapolis and Oakland.
The victory over the Raiders gives some credence that this team isn't the one we saw the first three weeks of the season; however, one must wonder if the Raiders would have done better if the game happened later when Carson Palmer had some playing time under his belt. But that didn't happen and the Chiefs shutout out the Raiders, 28-0.
The Chargers, meanwhile, remain atop the AFC West standings, but they did lose their second game of the season on Sunday. The Jets defeated them, 27-21, after scoring 17 unanswered points in the second half of the game. They will face the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football next week.
The Denver Broncos are still at the bottom of the AFC West, but instead of a 1-4 record they improved to 2-4 after Tim Tebow's first start of the season. The Detroit Lions await them on Sunday at Mile High.
