That's a rough 8 games.. I'd be very surprised if they somehow manage 3 wins in the first half of the season- 2-6 and the media are going to be surrounding like sharks and questioning the bank they paid for Manning-
Nother tuff one for the Chiefs- See them splitting with the Chargers, Losing a close one at home opening week vs the Falcons- pretty similar teams but Matt Ryan proves to be the better QB and gives the Chiefs a loss at home in week 1. 4-4 by the halfway point
Chargers split with the Chiefs and sit in the division by the halfway point with a 5-3 record, Rivers proves he's the best QB still in the division and hands the Broncos their worst loss of the year in week 6-, lose a close one to the Chiefs in their first meeting. Rivers and Ryan are a good matchup in week 3 but Rivers proves to be the better of the two..
Monday night, opening night in Oakland- where they sold out every game last year- place will be packed and loud- Janikowski wins it with a FG.. Raiders finally get that win in Florida in September beating the Dolphins in week 2 - law of averages say its their time- With a bye, Raiders have 2 weeks, go into Atlanta and upset the Falcons.. Jags and Bucs at home prove not to be a problem- Lose to in division rivals Broncos and Chiefs to tie with the Chargers at the halfway point at 5-3
Final standing in the AFC West by mid point week 9
