Chargers fail to beat Saints, Remain #1 in AFC West


Good news.  Bad news.  Or is it the other way around?  When the Chargers tromped into New Orleans they were #1 in the AFC West and looking to keep the Saints with a big 0 in the win column.  Unfortunately, the Bolts fell short of the win (due to horrible officiating, IMO) and the Saints were able to improve to 1-4.  The only bright spot is that the Broncos and the Chiefs also lost.  With the Raiders having a bye week this is how the AFC West is shaping up going into week six:

San Diego Chargers       3-2
Denver Broncos                2-3
Oakland Raiders               1-3
Kansas City Chiefs            1-4

Next week the Chargers play the Broncos at home.  Look for a big win for the Chargers that will result in a two game lead.
