In a remarkable turnaround after an 0-3 start, which included two 30+ point blowout losses as well as season-ending injuries to star RB Jamaal Charles and S Eric Berry, the Kansas City Chiefs are now in a three-way tie for first place in the AFC West at 4-3.

Kansas City has beaten the other teams tied for first, the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders, in consecutive weeks.

The Chiefs won a miraculous game last night after Chargers QB Philip Rivers mishandled a snap at the end of regulation, and they blew out the Raiders the week before in QB Carson Palmer's first appearance in an NFL game this season.

The Denver Broncos, at 2-5, are far behind the rest of the AFC West, as the Tim Tebow melodrama has completely overshadowed the rest of their season.

The AFC West is one of the weakest divisions in the NFL, as only the Chargers have a positive point differential for the season.
