The AFC West got things started early this week with the Thursday Night Football game between the Chiefs and Chargers. It was a tight one all night long but Kansas City was able to get the overtime victory.

Kansas City improved to 10-4 with the win while LA dropped to 8-6. The Chiefs have a two-game lead on the Chargers with three games remaining. The teams split the season series, which moves the tiebreaker to division record. KC is 4-1 against AFC West opponents while LA is 2-2.

The Broncos are hosting the Bengals Sunday afternoon in a matchup critical to both teams’ wild card hopes. Both teams are 7-6 heading into that game. The AFC West wraps up on Monday after a postponement of Raiders-Browns. Cleveland had an outbreak of COVID-19 that eventually led to the Saturday matchup moved to Monday. It will air at 5 p.m. ahead of the Vikings-Bears Monday Night Football game.
