Goody's 2015 NFL Predictions: AFC West

Denver Broncos (10-6): Peyton Manning is not the QB he used to be, and it might show now more than ever on the field. Kubiak is going to try to take some of the pressure off of Manning by running the ball a bit more. Also when it counts to make a playoff push, they may also have to rely on their very talented defense.

San Diego Chargers (10-6): The Chargers now don't have to worry about what they are doing for their QB in the near future. They locked in Phillip Rivers, who don't forget, was in the MVP race for much of the first half of the season. Melvin Gordon should help boost their running game and take some pressure of off Rivers.

Kansas City Chiefs (9-7): A lot of the Chiefs success will hinge on the health of Jamaal Charles. Don't forget Smith will now have an actual decent to throw to this year in Maclin. They however are still just a step or two behind the Chargers and the Broncos to get back into the playoffs.

Oakland Raiders (6-10): Hiring Jack Del Rio and dumping a lot of dead cap weight, I feel more confident now more than ever that this team is moving in the correct direction. Don't forget the young, talented defense will now be lead by Ken Norton Jr. Amari Cooper will be a great target for Derrick Carr for years to come. However as of right now their division is too tough for their record to show for it.
