This division is flat out nuts. As of right now, the AFC west and AFC North are the only divisions in the league that every team has a winning record. What makes the AFC West different is all of the teams have the same amount of wins (5). Get ready for one hell of a ride.
Talk about every thing that could go wrong did, WOW! After the tragedy with Henry Ruggs, the team just came out and played with no spark or even worse, no heart. Derek Carr was 30 of 46 (65.2%) for 296 yards and a touchdown with 2 interceptions and a fumble. Josh Jacobs had 13 carries for 76 yards with 4 receptions for 19 yards. Darren Waller had 7 receptions for 92 yards. The defense had 3 sacks with 5 tackles for loss and a fumble recovery. Daniel Carlson was 3 of 4 on fieldgoals and 1 for 1 on extra points. Derek Carr’s interceptions turned into 10 points and Daniel Carlson missed a 25 yard fieldgoal, the shortest miss in his career.
The Broncos came out and flat out smashed the Cowboys in every facet of the game. Teddy Bridgewater was 19 of 28 (67.8%) for 249 yards and a touchdown. Javonte Williams had 17 carries for 111 yards. Tim Patrick had 4 receptions for 85 yards and a touchdown. The defense had 2 sacks and 4 tackles for loss with a fumble recovery and a interception. Brandon McManus was 3 of 4 on fieldgoals and 1 of 2 on extra points. The Broncos defense was outstanding and they ran for 190 yards.
The Chargers took what the Eagles gave them and dinked and dunked their way to a win. Justin Herbert was 32 of 38 (84.2%) for 356 yards and 2 touchdowns with 5 carries for 14 yards and a touchdown. Austin Ekeler had 17 carries for 59 yards with 3 receptions for 23 yards. Keenan Allen had 12 receptions for 104 yards. The defense had 1 sack and 1 tackle for loss. Dustin Hopkins was 2 for 2 on fieldgoals and 1 for 2 on extra points. The Chargers kept the ball for over 6 minutes and kicked the game winning fieldgoal to win the game.
Talk about winning ugly, this was it. Patrick Mahomes was 20 of 37 (54%) for 166 yards. Darrell Williams had 19 carries for 70 yards with 3 receptions for 7 yards. Travis Kelce had 5 receptions for 68 yards and a touchdown. The defense had a sack with 3 tackles for loss with a interception and a fumble recovery. Harrison Butker was 2 for 2 on fieldgoals and 1 for 1 on extra points. No Aaron Rodgers and you are playing at home should equate to a beatdown, nope.
