Last season, the AFC West teams completely kicked the snot out of each other. The result was the Tim Tebow-lead Denver Broncos winning the division and shocking the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Wild Card round.
This season, the Broncos made an upgrade at quarterback by acquiring Peyton Manning. However, the rest of the AFC West will get better as well.
The Raiders will get back their star, injury-plagued running back in Darren McFadden. The Chargers will get a healthy Antonio Gates. The Kansas City Chiefs will get three key players back from torn ACLs.
Just like in 2011, the teams of the AFC West may just rear back and beat the tar out of each other again. Here's a look at who could come out on top come January.
