After Week Nine, the Oakland Raiders seem to be the crown princes of the AFC West.
They defeated the Denver Broncos (6-3) last week and this week, they get a bye week to come back. As for the rest of the AFC West, the Kansas City Chiefs (6-2), Broncos and San Diego Chargers (4-5) play.
Along with the strength of the AFC West has been the ineptitude of the AFC North. The Baltimore Ravens (4-4) and Pittsburgh Steelers (4-4) played the most penalized game of the season. The Ravens have a bout against the Browns on Thursday Night Football against the division foe, the winless Cleveland Browns (0-9). For the Steelers, they have an bout against the Dallas Cowboys (7-1). The Cincinnati Bengals (3-4-1) play against the Giants on Monday Night Football.
Here are my picks:
