8 Biggest Obstacles for the Denver Broncos to Repeat as AFC West Champions
Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have their eyes set on another AFC West title. They are hoping the third time is the charm as they want to win the Super Bowl in 2013.

They won the AFC West in 2011 with Tim Tebow leading the way. In 2012 they won the AFC West again, this time with Peyton Manning as the man in charge.

This season Manning wants another division title, and the Broncos got off to a 2-0 start to begin the year. They play their first division game of the season in Week 3 against the Oakland Raiders.

Some felt the AFC West was the weakest division in the NFL before the start of the regular season. The Chiefs, Chargers and Raiders are all in different phases of rebuilding. Most felt the Broncos would run away with this division and secure their third-straight AFC West title.

After two weeks of the 2013 season, we’ve seen the AFC West have more fight than some think.

The Chiefs won their Week 3 Thursday Night Football game against the Philadelphia Eagles. They now sit atop the division at 3-0.

The Chargers have a revamped offense under new head coach Mike McCoy. The former Broncos offensive coordinator has been getting the most out of quarterback Philip Rivers.

The Raiders are moving the ball with quarterback Terrelle Pryor. Their ground game leads the NFL in rushing yards after two weeks. Their defense also leads the league in sacks.

Let’s take a look at some of the biggest obstacles that could get in the way of the Denver Broncos winning another AFC West title.
