The AFC West race is officially over. The Chiefs thumped the Steelers on Sunday afternoon, and that coupled with the Chargers loss to the Texans allowed Kansas City to win their sixth straight division title.
The Chiefs had no trouble with the Steelers and rolled to an 11-4 record. They have the best record in the AFC, holding a one-game lead over the Titans. They finish the season with road games against Cincinnati and Denver.
Meanwhile, LA blew a huge opportunity with an ugly loss in Houston. They drop to the outside looking in on the wild card picture and need help to get to the playoffs. They finish the season at home against Denver and on the road in Las Vegas.
Speaking of those two teams, the Raiders edged out the Broncos to move into ninth place overall in the AFC. They need help and have plenty of work to do on their own with a closing game at Indianapolis before the Chargers game.
- Kansas City Chiefs, 11-4
- Los Angeles Chargers, 8-7
- Las Vegas Raiders, 8-7
- Denver Broncos, 7-8
