LA Chargers—LA after a slow start to the season rallied to finish with a 9-7 record sitting in second place in the AFC West division. It was not good enough for a playoff spot as the Chargers lost a four team tiebreaker for two playoff spots. Through the draft the Chargers showed improvement to their defense as the team finished third best allowing only 17 points per game. Team has the best pass rush in the division. Phillip Rivers needs help from his running game because he tends to force passes and make critical mistakes when one dimensional.

Kansas City Chiefs—Kansas City won the AFC West division last year with a mark of 10-6. Chiefs dropped a 22-21 home decision in the AFC Wildcard to the Tennessee Titans blowing a large halftime lead. Alex Smith has left the Chiefs, so they are committed to 2017 first round pick Patrick Mahomes. There is talent around the second-year quarterback. It is the defense that is the concern as KC finished 29th against the pass and 25th in stopping the run.

Oakland Raiders—Oakland fell to 6-10 a season ago. Derek Carr returned from an in season back injury and did not look the same on the field. John Gruden returns to coaching after several seasons in the broadcast booth. Oakland saw production on the ground decline last year and the defense ranked 26th against the run.

Denver Broncos—Denver couldn’t find immediately their quarterback of the future once Peyton Manning retired. They continued their search in the offseason and signed Case Keenum. Broncos finished in last place in the AFC West at 5-11. With poor quarterback play the Broncos were 1-7 on the road. Good news for the team is their defense kept Denver competitive as they ranked third in total defense finishing in the top five against the run and pass.
