After winning the Super Bowl last season, the Chiefs have firmly established themselves atop the AFC West, leaving the Raiders, Broncos and Chargers behind to play second fiddle until further notice.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS
After a historic Playoff run that led to a conference title, the Chiefs used a late 4th Quarter surge in the Super Bowl, that helped propel them to football immortality. This season, the Champs are back fully reloaded and ready to defend their crown.
LOS ANGELES CHARGERS
The Chargers are another team beginning a new chapter this season, with the departure of star Running Back Melvin Gordon and most notably Quarterback Phillip Rivers who had been the face of the franchise for so long. The team still has some exciting talent but seeks new leadership under center.
The Broncos have completely revamped their roster after winning the Super Bowl back in 2015. Second year Head Coach Vic Fangio is now calling the shots, as he looks to bolster Denver's defense while second year Quarterback Drew Lock is expected to make things happen on young but talented offense.

LAS VEGAS RAIDERS
Like the Chargers, the Raiders are also beginning a new journey but their change comes in the form of a relocation. After 60 years in California, the Silver and Black will now call Las Vegas home, infusing some new electricity into Sin City that comes along with undeniable pressure to win now.
