    The Broncos don’t beat the Chiefs. Andy Reid almost never loses coming off a bye. The NFL flexed Denver at Kansas City with those facts staring directly at the league? Well, yes. Sunday night’s game, which replaces San Francisco at Seattle, is for the AFC West lead, which makes it significant enough. Plus, anytime the NFL and NBC can get Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the rest of the Chiefs in prime time is an opportunity they tend to seize. “It’s like somebody mentioned the other day: Sunday night is THE game,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio said this week, “so players get amped for it. I don’t think we’ll have an issue being emotionally ready. “Besides,” Fangio added, “we’re playing the Chiefs, who have been the best team in football the last three years.” So the Chiefs (7-4), who have won four straight games and have a one-game lead over Denver, Las Vegas and the Los Angeles Chargers in the division, get to showcase not only their offensive prowess, but their recent significant improvement on defense. That often-maligned unit...
    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys struggled through a November trip through the AFC West that took plenty of luster off their incredible start, even as they still control the NFC East. After forcing overtime Thursday, the Cowboys had two more untimely penalties after they got the ball first before losing 36-33 to the Las Vegas Raiders. It was the third loss in four games for Dallas, all against AFC West teams. From a 6-1 record after a Halloween victory at Minnesota, the Cowboys finished their annual Thanksgiving Day game 7-4. They won’t play at home again until the day after Christmas. “That certainly (was) a home game we all hoped that before we got on the road that we could win this game,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “Oakland took advantage of the situation. I call it throw-up ball. Right way to play in a game like this, just throw it out there and get a penalty.” Daniel Carlson’s game-ending 29-yard field goal came after cornerback Anthony Brown was called for pass interference on a...

    (CBS Denver) — It’s been a surprising season in the AFC West. The Kansas City Chiefs, who have won the AFC the last two years, have just pulled themselves up to .500 after four early-season losses. That’s good enough for a last-place tie with the Denver Broncos. Meanwhile, The Las Vegas Raiders, facing down another scandal, sit in first place. The Los Angeles Chargers came out of the gate strong but have slipped in recent weeks. The Raiders and Chargers should be able to maintain their lead.

    (CBS Los Angeles) — The Kansas City Chiefs still have the inside track on the AFC West title. But there could very well be some bumps in the road. Their remaining schedule features a few tough matchups, not to mention rematches with each of their three division rivals. That starts this Sunday with the Las Vegas Raiders, the only team to beat them so far. The Raiders, at 6-3, are coming off a thrashing of the Denver Broncos, and will be looking to stay in the mix of what’s become a very competitive AFC playoff race. Six teams hold a 6-3 record in the AFC, but only one of them leads their division. The Broncos host the resurgent Dolphins, one of those 6-3 playoff contenders behind rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Miami is riding a five-game winning streak, the Broncos have lost two straight. Their last win came against the Los Angeles Chargers on a last-second touchdown catch. That was the first of three straight Chargers losses. But they draw a favorable matchup in Week 11, with the winless New York...

CBS Denver sports anchor Michael Spencer looks at matchups in the AFC West. All times listed are Eastern. Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos, Sunday, October 25 @ 4:25 (CBS) The Broncos should be happy with their progress, beating the New York Jets, 37-28, for their first win of the season and following that up by taking down the New England Patriots, 18-12. “It’s a team that seems like it has a lot of momentum,” says Spencer. “Didn’t get into the end zone in that victory against the Patriots. But I think we saw a lot of good things from Drew Lock. We saw a lot of good things from Phillip Lindsay. This offense is...
