AFC West Standings: Kansas City Chiefs Somehow Still Tied For First

The race to the bottom continues in the AFC West, as the Chiefs, Chargers and Raiders all lost last weekend.

After losing by 28 points to the previously win-less Miami Dolphins, the Kansas City Chiefs point differential this season dropped to -70, the third worst in the NFL. They are tied for first place in the AFC West.

Kansas City, Oakland and San Diego are all at 4-4, making the AFC West the only division in football that does not have a team with a winning record. 

Neither the Raiders, who have struggled to incorporate QB Carson Palmer into the fold after his year-long lay-off and just gave up 38 points to the Denver Broncos, nor the Chargers, whose star QB Philip Rivers leads the league in interceptions, are looking ready to break away from the pack either.

Denver, at 3-5, is only one game behind despite the ongoing Tim Tebow melodrama that has consumed their season.

With all three teams still playing a schedule full of AFC East and NFC North teams, two of the strongest divisions in football, over the last eight weeks, the winner of the AFC West might have a 9-7 or even a 8-8 record.
