AFC West Competition

Steve Shoup

The AFC west is made of four teams that have legit playoff aspirations. Kansas City engulfed west with around 12 wins over the Raiders, alongside the Broncos five straight division.


It is hard to find a stronger group of pass rushers than AFC West. These four teams feature key players on the offensive side, and are making NFL headlines on regular basis. It is primed to be a perfect dogfight in the west with as many as 3 making playoffs.


Oakland Raiders


Derek Carr’s fourth-quarter mistake led to Oakland’s 28-20 loss in Miami, however Derek is still awesome QB. No one doubts that. The receiving duo Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree are known as the best. The Raiders boast of a strong bunch of maulers for the offensive line. The defense of Oakland features All-pro edge setter Khalili Mack and the pass rushing counterpart Bruce Irvin. Their defense suspect is suspicious. The young secondary features Karl Joseph and rookies high promising which involves Obi Melifonwu and Gareon Conley. The Oakland blends well with the AFC championship appearance.


Los Angeles Chargers


Anthony Lyn the new head coach ensures his team is focused since they have sufficient positive buzz during offseason. Philip Rivers have enough receivers at disposal, who are under the leadership of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and pair of very capable tight ends. Melvin Gordon is expected to have a strong season and could even have a more productive season since the charges invested are likely to upgrade their offensive line.


Joey Bosa performed astoundingly as a rookie and now having added Melvin Ingram to pile pressure on the opposite, he is expected to perform better. The Young Chargers linebackers are highly compact and their corners have stood the test of time by performing above average. Loss Angeles are likely to celebrate this year if they are going to make playoffs or not. They are going to come up with strategic decisions of Lynn with his highly experienced staff of coaching.


Denver Broncos


The defense for Denver is primed to undergo regression. Von Miller stands to be the destroyer of the game plan and rushing mates Shaq Barret and Shane Ray successfully completed by Chris Harris at the corner. It is hard to top the Broncos personnel pass defense. The big challenge is that they are vulnerable to devoted attacks.


Their line which is below average has the potentiality to be better in investing free draft and agent resources in the group. In fact, it will not be surprising if the new head coach Vance Joseph nodding to a strong-armed youngster. Despite passes thrown, it may not be sufficient enough in this fierce competitive division.


The Kansas City has been able to make a huge trade land on their quarterback future, although they gave up for the first round for the next year in the process. The Oakland Raiders were also able to take a big selection with their best although inform of a talented corner with off-field allegations.
