AFC West Update: Broncos Remain Undefeated, Sean Smith Returns From Suspension


The Oakland Raiders have now won back-to-back games for the first time since 2012, defeating the Cleveland Browns Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland 27-20 and now sit at 2-1 overall.

Leading into Week 4, the NFL season is now in full swing, so let's check in with the happenings around the rest of the AFC West.



Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have won all three of their 2015 regular season games and currently sit atop the AFC West with a record of 3-0.

Their most recent victory came Sunday as they traveled to Motown and took down the Detroit Lions 24-12. In the victory, quarterback Peyton Manning threw for 324 and 2 touchdowns, and linebacker Brandon Marshall paced the defense with 12 total tackles, 1 tackle for loss and 1 quarterback hit.

It may be early in the season, but with the early success of both squads, the Week 5 matchup between the Raiders and Broncos at Coliseum becomes all the more important.



After winning their 2015 opener against the Houston Texans, the Kansas City Chiefs lost their past two contests and currently have a record of 1-2.

They met the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football earlier this week, losing to Aaron Rodgers and company 38-28 at Lambeau Field.

However, the Kansas City defense will be getting some help this week as they prepare for their Week 4 tilt with the Cincinnati Bengals, as cornerback Sean Smith is set to return from suspension.

Smith was suspended by the league for a violation of its substance-abuse policy, stemming from an April DUI.



Similarly to the Chiefs, the San Diego Chargers have dropped their past two games after starting the season out in the win column.

Their most recent stumble occurred Sunday at TCF Bank Stadium, where the Bolts lost to the Vikings 31-14.

The team now shifts their focus to their Week 4 matchup with the Cleveland Browns, and while thelast two games of the season haven't gone as planned, wide receiver Keenan Allen has enjoyed a record-breaking start to the 2015 campaign, catching 29 passes for 315 yards and 2 touchdowns.
