The Denver Broncos could have moved into first place in the AFC West if they upset the Kansas City Chiefs on “Sunday Night Football” in Week 13. Instead, following a disappointing loss on the road, Denver fell to last place in the division.
Here’s a look at the current AFC West standings going into Week 14.
|Kansas City Chiefs||8-4||2-1||3-4|
|Los Angeles Chargers||7-5||2-1||5-3|
|Las Vegas Raiders||6-6||1-2||4-3|
To keep pace in the AFC’s Wild Card race, the Broncos now have a must-win upcoming home game against the Detroit Lions, who won a game for the first time this season on Sunday.
After that, Denver will have another game with crucial Wild Card implications against the Cincinnati Bengals (7-5). That game will also be played at home.
The Broncos will then close out the season with road games against the Raiders and Chargers followed by a home game against the Chiefs. Denver still has a chance to reach the playoffs, but there’s a lot of work to be done.
