The Denver Broncos remain atop the AFC West standings despite Sunday's 41-23 loss to the New England Patriots at home. What looked to be a shootout eventually turned into a one-sided affair for the Broncos. Tim Tebow was unable to lead a fourth quarter comeback, as Tom Brady had put the Patriots in too large of a lead for the Broncos' signal caller to attempt a comeback. They are now 8-6.
The Oakland Raiders could have also moved up to 8-6, but the team squandered a potential victory by allowing two touchdowns in the final two minutes of the game, falling, 28-27, after Sebastian Janikowski had his 65-yard field goal attempt blocked to end the game.
The San Diego Chargers up-ended the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday Night Football, 34-14, to remain in the AFC West race. However, the Kansas City Chiefs pulled off the biggest upset of the day by defeating the Green Bay Packers, 19-14. The Packers are now 13-1 while the Chiefs are 6-8 and still have a shot at winning the division.
