Hype around the Denver Broncos continues to grow, and many experts are picking the Broncos to finish the 2012 season atop the AFC West. 

To call the AFC West one of the league's better divisions would be inaccurate, but to say it is without talent is equally incorrect. 

The San Diego Chargers are certainly an enigma; Philip Rivers has been one of the league's most consistent quarterbacks since 2004, and despite solid defenses and fellow offensive weapons, he and his Chargers are known for one thing: choking. 

The Oakland Raiders have some hype around them, yet I don't think Darren McFadden and another new head coach will formulate a division win. The defense in Oakland just isn't there. 

The Kansas City Chiefs will be Denver's greatest competition in 2012. The two almost certainly seem paired for a one-two finish. The Chiefs are a lot like a cat on their second life; returning to the field will be starting quarterback Matt Cassel, star running back Jamaal Charles and safety Eric "The Fifth Dimension" Berry. 

With the Chiefs feeling healthy and rejuvenated, Denver will have to make sure that they use all of their upper hands to their best advantage. Here are six areas that Denver holds the higher card.
