2011 AFC West Standings: Tebow And The Broncos Alone In First, Chiefs Fading

As the AFC Playoff picture becomes clearer, it's apparent that the only way for a AFC West team to make the postseason will be via the division title, which now belongs to the darling Denver Broncos, who defied logic again on Sunday in a 13-10 win in OT, despite trailing 10-0 with five minutes remaining. Combined with the Packers' blowout of the Oakland Raiders, Denver controls their own destiny in the division race - this after having started the season 1-5.

At 5-8, the Chiefs' playoff chances are extremely slim - they're the last team "alive" in's projections, and trail the Titans, Raiders, Bengals and Chargers in the wild card race.
