Record: 9-3, second place in AFC West Remaining schedule: at Washington Redskins (Dec. 8), at Oakland Raiders (Dec. 15), vs. Indianapolis Colts (Dec. 22), at San Diego Chargers (Dec. 29) Skinny: The Chiefs' prospects of winning the AFC West took a major hit Sunday when they lost to the Broncos for a second time. Denver now holds a one-game lead in the division and has four remaining games against teams with losing records. The Chiefs are in good shape in the wild-card race. If the season ended today, the fifth-seeded Chiefs would travel to play the Cincinnati Bengals.
