1. Denver Broncos (12-4): How much left does Peyton Manning have left? You would have to assume anytime he is on the field the Broncos have a chance to win. The Broncos once again added big name free agents this off season, but can free agent acquisition Sanders or rookie Latimer replace Decker.
2. Kansas City Chiefs (10-6): After their hot start last season the Chiefs fell back to earth a little bit towards the end of the season. I expect more of a down to earth approach for the Chiefs this season with solid play from Alex Smith and electrifying play of Jamaal Charles, they should remain a contender for a playoff spot.
3. Oakland Raiders (7-9): After two seasons of 4-12 head coach Dennis Allen and GM Reggie McKenzie, the Raiders seem to be on the right track to move up the standings roster wise. After purging their talent over the past two season to get back to a normal cap this may be the year were we see the Raiders start digging themselves out of that black hole they have been over the past decade.
4. San Diego Chargers (5-11): The Chargers simply back into the postseason last year, however they did pick up the Wild Card win over the Bengals. This year will be a different story for them as they face a tough schedule to begin the season which will be hard for them to repeat what they did in 2013.
