The LA Chargers are the only team in the AFC West with two division games and that has given the Bolts a leg up as they have defeated the Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders in back to back weeks.
There is currently a three-way tie record-wise atop the AFC West with the Chargers, Raiders and Denver Broncos all owning a 3-1 record. The Chiefs, meanwhile, sit in last place with a 2-2 record.
The records and standings, especially this early in the season, are not exact indications of who the best teams in the division are. That is why we here at Bolt Beat bring you our weekly AFC West power rankings.
AFC Power rankings after Week 4 results:
4. Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos are 3-1 might they might just be the most fraudulent 3-1 team in the AFC and that includes the Cincinnati Bengals. The Broncos had the easiest three-game start imaginable, beating three teams that are a combined 2-10 through four weeks.
The Broncos came crashing back down to reality in Week 4 with a humbling loss to the Baltimore Ravens in which they dominated all three areas of the game on the road in Denver. To make matters worse, Teddy Bridgewater suffered a concussion and the Broncos might have to start Drew Lock in Week 5.
Are the Broncos going to be a bottom-feeding team? No, they will win at least seven games. However, the AFC West is so talented and they are obviously the least talented team of the bunch. Until they prove it against a good team, that is a fair assessment.
