The AFC West is not finalized yet, but the Chiefs all but locked things down on Sunday Night Football. What many expected would be the best division in the NFL this season has turned into a one-team race.

The Chiefs face the Chargers on Sunday and stormed down the field in the final two minutes to score a go-ahead touchdown with 31 seconds left. LA thought they had a win secured but Patrick Mahomes did his magical thing and it was an absolute gut-punch loss for the Chargers. KC now has a three-game lead plus they secured the head-to-head tiebreaker with a season sweep.

The Raiders beat the Broncos in Denver, but those two disappointments are more likely to end up with a top ten draft pick than a spot in the playoffs. The Chargers remain in the playoff mix, but it’s very possible the preseason heavyweight division turns into a lightweight group of the Chiefs and everybody else.

Below is a rundown of the AFC West division standings, each team’s opponent next week, and their division title odds at DraftKings Sportsbook heading toward Week 12.
