The AFC West standings appear to be flipped upside down from where most projections would have guessed it would end up this season.
The Chiefs, instead of leading, are at the bottom. The Broncos, instead of sitting in fourth, are undefeated, along with the Raiders. On “Monday Night Football,” two AFC West foes will play under the spotlight when the Raiders travel to Inglewood, California, to face the Los Angeles Chargers.
And both these teams have proven they’re capable of handling some of the toughest teams in the AFC. The Raiders opened the season with a win against Lamar Jackson and the Ravens, while the Chargers are coming off a win against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.
