AFC West Odds to Win

Even without Tyreek Hill streaking down the sidelines, the Kansas City Chiefs were still the best team in the AFC West and all of football by the end of the year. Kansas City beat Jacksonville and Cincinnati to make its third Super Bowl in the last four years, and the Chiefs overcame a 10-point halftime deficit to beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII. Unsurprisingly, Kansas City is once again the favorite to win the AFC as the Chiefs have hosted the AFC Championship Game for five straight seasons with Patrick Mahomes at the helm.

There has been a shake-up in what the Kansas City Chiefs have to offer at the skill positions, but this offense should be elite once more as long as Patrick Mahomes stays healthy. Rookie Isiah Pacheco out of Rutgers had a solid first year as a running back despite being a seventh-round pick, and he has supplanted Clyde Edwards-Helaire as the first option. Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore are sliding into starting roles at receiver alongside Marquez Valdes-Scantling, while Travis Kelce is still the main playmaker as the best receiving tight end in the NFL.

Justin Herbert continues to improve as a passer, and the Los Angeles Chargers could have a terrifying passing game in 2023. The Chargers were able to come to terms with dual-threat running back Austin Ekeler, and they drafted TCU standout WR Quentin Johnston in the first round. If Keenan Allen and Mike Williams can stay healthy, this team has a lot of potential on offense.

The first year of the Russell Wilson era was an abject disaster. Denver was expected to make the playoffs and contend for a division title, but the Broncos finished in the cellar of the AFC West with a 5-12 record even though they had a great defense. If Denver had scored at least 18 points in regulation  in each of its first 10 games, the Broncos would have been 9-1, but instead they were 3-7 at that point. Now, the hope is that new coach Sean Payton can rejuvenate Wilson and this offense.

No one knows what the Las Vegas Raiders will do at the quarterback position this season. Derek Carr was released and signed with New Orleans, so the Raiders went ahead and signed Jimmy Garoppolo in free agency. Garoppolo was expected to be the answer for at least a couple seasons, but he has failed his physical and might have his entire three-year contract nullified as a result. Now, there is speculation that Tom Brady could emerge from retirement since he is a partial owner of Las Vegas.

Although there is long-term balance in the AFC West, in the short term, teams go on long runs as division champions. The San Diego Chargers won four straight AFC West titles from 2006 to 2009, the Denver Broncos won five straight division crowns from 2011 to 2015, and the Kansas City Chiefs have now won seven consecutive division titles. That should mean the Las Vegas Raiders are primed to go on a run soon as they haven’t won the AFC West in over two decades at this point.

The AFC West has been the most balanced division in the NFL since its inception. There is almost a perfect equilibrium between all four teams, and another Kansas City Chiefs division title in 2022 would mean that every team has won this division exactly 15 times.
