It’s early, of course, but the AFC West already looks like a two-team race. The San Diego Chargers lead the division, with the Denver Broncos one game back and nipping at the lightning bolt. The Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs aren’t far behind, but with two wins between them, they’re excluded from the conversation for now. Peyton Manning’s arrival in Denver promised to alter the structure of the division, but it didn’t happen immediately. Manning’s played nearly as big as his reputation, and between commercial appearances, he’s found time to amass a quarterback rating of 101.0 ‒ second best in the league. Wins haven’t accompanied the numbers, though. The Broncos, having played a tough schedule, and under .500. As long as the Broncos get this one tonight, though, they’re not out anything ‒ they’d be 3-3 and tied for the division lead, with their top adversaries owing them a return trip to Denver. But the Chargers have made some changes, too. The defense is stronger this year than it was last year, and it will have to be if they want to keep Manning in check. After early injuries and struggles, talented running back Ryan Mathews had the best game of his career last week against the Saints. If he can keep contributing at that level, it completely transforms the Chargers offense.

After six weeks of quality NFL football it is hard to believe there are only two standout teams in the AFC. It will be interesting to see which teams will stand up and take charge of the remainder of their seasons.
