NFL: DEC 13 Raiders at Broncos

It was an odd week in the AFC West, as with the Broncos 21-13 loss on Thursday night to the San Diego Chargers, and the Kansas City Chiefs 26-10 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, trying to predict this division right now is like figuring out how to play baccarat.

The Broncos next few games as they try to figure out how to turn his offense around may be their biggest of the season, and they also have two huge games in that stretch against two AFC West foes, one a rematch with the Chargers at home, and another a monster game in Oakland on prime time against the other 4-2 team in the division – the Raiders.

The schedule for the Broncos, as would be expected coming off the Super Bowl, is chock full of national TV games, with another one this week against their old pal Brock Osweiler and the Houston Texans at home on Monday, October 24th.

You can’t overlook the Texans, as they haven’t been good at all on the road, but at the same time showed some serious fight last night as they overcame a late 14-point deficit to beat the Indianapolis Colts 26-23 in overtime at home.

Houston is atop the AFC South at 4-2, and they are a perfect 4-0 at home, but have yet to win a road game at 0-2. If the Broncos can get to their old QB and make some plays, they should send Houston to 0-3 away from their home stadium.

Then it’s a rematch at home six days later against the Chargers, a team that will come into Denver high on themselves after their 21-13 win on Thursday night.

Bottom line is the Broncos have to get off to a better start against the Chargers, and not allow San Diego to get momentum and build leads like they did on Thursday night.

The week after the Chargers game is the Broncos biggest test of the season to date, as they will take on the Oakland Raiders on the road.

Oddly enough the Raiders are 1-2 at home, while being 3-0 on the road. Sunday the Chiefs ran all over the Raiders in a 26-10 win, and it could be a busy day for the likes of C.J. Anderson if the Broncos duplicate the Chiefs game plan.

It looks like the Raiders are going to be a streaky team this season, win a few, lose a few. They are still a very young team, but with Jack Del Rio, they are playing better and at worse look like a wild card team in the AFC.

The AFC West is always a dogfight, and with the results from Sunday it once again looks like a division that will come down to the end.
