AFC West Q&A: Who will win the division and who will make playoffs? -
I like the Chiefs to overtake the Broncos and win the AFC West for the first time since 2010. Kansas City has a consistent performer at quarterback in Alex Smith along with a good defense. With the Broncos going through a change at quarterback, 2016 should be the time for Andy Reid to take his team over the threshold and win an AFC West title. The Broncos and Raiders should compete for a wild-card spot, with the Broncos advancing to the postseason and Oakland finishing above .500 for the first time since advancing to the Super Bowl in 2002.

From mingling with fans to "catching" a fever taking the world by storm, check out what some of the Chargers were up to this week.

But the stats very clearly show that Rivers has actually played the best football at the position out of the three. There are just a lot of situations where his best results in a loss, while Ben and Eli rack up wins because they have better defenses and weapons around them. Rivers can only play with the team he’s given.

Rivers is hardly ever the problem, though. Much like the Dolphins staff the Chargers have struggled putting an offensive line together, putting a lot of pressure on the quarterback position to make plays. Rivers has been the one consistent in sunny San Diego for years and continues to be their rock in an organization that can’t quite figure out the Super Bowl formula.

And to put it even more in perspective, Rivers did all this with only half a season’s worth of star wideout Keenan Allen, who suffered a kidney injury in Week 8 against the Baltimore Ravens. With him back for a whole season and the signing of WR-KR Travis Benjamin, Rivers will have some nice weapons to throw to that will bolster his numbers even more.
