We see the defending Super Bowl champs missing out on the playoffs and coming in last in the AFC West. Before you say that we must be on drugs, consider the rest of the division:
The Kansas City Chiefs (currently ranked Number 2 in the NFL by the ff-winners.com computer)have ended up being a strong team led by quarterback Alex Smith and their extraordinary defense. Second, the Oakland Raiders have been improving as a young team, and after tons of off season signings, they will be a significant rival this year. Although the San Diego Chargers were just 4-12 last season, they were pestered with injuries. Philip Rivers is one of the league’s premier quarterbacks and the return of Keenan Allan will be very refreshing. Thinking about all this, the Broncos, who have actually lost loads of vital players in free agent, have divisional games that will cause them significant difficulties. The Broncos were led entirely by their defense last year, but have been broken up this off season. Their two biggest losses are Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan. To top all of it off, having lost Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, the Broncos starting quarterback is Mark Sanchez. They are more likely than not to miss the playoffs and perhaps even finish last in their division.
