AFC West: Broncos Easily Best in NFL; Chiefs Strong Debut

The Denver Broncos Week 1 Rating is 10 points better than anyone else in the NFL, confirming them as the early Super Bowl favorites behind Peyton Manning's seven touchdowns against the defending champion Ravens heading into the next Manning bowl in New York. The division looks better than expected overall, as Andy Reid's Chiefs would be a surprise wild card team based on the Week 1 rating, while Terrelle Pryor's running (112 yards) and passing (19-29 for 217 yards) was almost enough for the Raiders to upset Andrew Luck and the Colts. The Week 1 Ratings in the AFC West:
