Kansas City was the first team from the AFC West to play on Sunday. It was ugly from the beginning when Dexter McCluster fumbled the opening kickoff.
From there it was all downhill for the Chiefs as they lost 41-7 at home to the Bills. A lot of credit should go to the Bills, but the Chiefs simply played horribly.
Not only did the Chiefs get blown out, but they lost stud safety Eric Berry for the season. Berry went to the Pro Bowl in 2010 and will be missed greatly by the Chiefs defense.
The Chargers were the only other team from the AFC West to nab a win in Week 1. It was less than impressive to say the least.
Minnesota returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, and San Diego kicker Nate Kaeding has been lost for the season.
This is bad news for a team that struggled in 2010 with special teams.
To go along with the Kaeding injury, defensive end Luis Castillo may be lost for the season with a broken leg.
The Chargers are still the toughest challenge in the AFC West as we saw what the Broncos have or don't have to offer in 2011.
